Folks be VERY aware that usually when you redeem your Restaurant.com cert at a restaurant that participates with the Restaurant.com certificate program, that unlike Groupon, many of the restaurants will only let you use the cert on limited days of the week.
Many, but not all, restaurants limit use on weekends, and as others have said if the restaurant has an existing deal--- Happy Hour, Prix Fixe menu, you'll won't be able to combine the in-restaurant special with your Restaurant.com cert--- this has been the case many times, at many different Restaurant.com merchant restaurants--- one of the reason I gave up paying for a glorified overpriced coupon from Restaurant.com
I hope everyone has a better experience with restaurant.com gift certificates than we did. One restaurant refused to honor the full conditions of the certificate citing the fact that R.com had posted the wrong stipulations. On top of that, a few other restaurants stopped accepting the certificates completely (after we had purchased them) due to supposed problems that they were having with R.com. Lots of places in my area now have warnings posted that they no longer accept their certificates. We had great luck the first few times we used these, but it quickly became more hassle/risk than it was worth. Best of luck to others though!
We have enough youth...how about a fountain of "smart"?
Also note that most restaurants have a minimum $ spent requirement. So, for example, you purchase a R.com $100 GC for someone as a present. The fine print most likely reads that a $200 minimum purchase is required. While you think you are giving them an awesome gift (for little $ out of your pocket), you are in fact giving them a 50% off coupon to pay for their own dinner. (And you paid for that coupon)
I had to send the seller an e bay message to get my code. Loaded in R.com and all is good.
For those not having good luck or worried with R.com use, we have never had issue. As a matter of fact, when using in our favorite city (of champions), we found some places that allow it to be used on ALL purchases, even drinks. While that is abnormal, our luck with other restaurants accepting with no issues is not. Good luck!
