How does it work? Businesses pay these companies to promote a daily deal that will bring a large number of new customers to their businesses, in hopes that some of them will become regular customers. Make sure you read all the restrictions, including expiration dates on the deals. For the deals that require a minimum number of buyers for the deal to be "on" you will not be charged if not enough buyers purchase the deal.
All dates, times, prices and offerings are subject to change without notice.

Every now and then, a good deal gets even better when they offer a special on the discounts. Sometimes, you can get a $25 dining certificate that normally sells for $10 for just $4 or $5. Often, these promotions are offered around holidays, like Valentine's Day or Mother's Day, although you might not be able to use the certificate on that exact day — check with the restaurant first.
Remember that all Restaurant.com certificates have restrictions. Some are only good for dinner, or don't include certain items, or require that a tip be calculated for you, etc. Read all the fine print on the certificate before you purchase it.
