Understand that these are in no way "gift cards" that are available from restaurant.com. These are effectively coupons that they generally charge for, much like those in the Entertainment books. That's why they always come with minimum purchases. The restaurant doesn't see ANY oney back from restaurant.com, which is why they limit it. They participate to try to get you in to spend money. And, of course, they hope you'll come back. They also tend to limit the number of uses on these and other similar coupons (like the ones in the Entertainment books).
And folks, please remember it's the holidays, and don't short-change your servers. Please tip on the FULL price of what you ordered, even if the restaurant doesn't require it. Standard tips vary around the country from 15-20%, but 18-20% is becoming the standard, since servers in the majority of states get between $2 and $4 per hour, which is less than half of minimum wage.
And before this becomes the usual fight about tips being optional, please understand that there are lots of non full service dining options available if you don't want to tip. The cost of foods in full service restaurants in America is cheaper than it is in comparable restaurants in Europe and elsewhere because there they pay their servers a living wage. In the US, it's assumed that the tips will cover a living wage for the servers (and bussers and bartenders and food runners), and items are priced accordingly. (If you don't believe me, just try to find a burger in ANY restaurant in Scandinavia -- where I just visited -- for under $25 or a mediocre steak for under $50! Good luck in that hunt, even in pubs and lower service establishments!)
So I've gone through this about three times now just because I wanted to see if I could, and I sent my personal emails all "a gift" and then redeemed it through the link in the email. Instead of signing up for a new Restaurant.com account, I logged in to my sending account once I picked out the restaurant and began the checkout process.
It allowed me to use these codes for my own account three times now - I suppose I could use a bunch of temporary addresses to send myself 40 gifts and make 400 dollars in gift cards a day.......
