In Denver, CO, we found one place that we like that's actually on Restaurants.com, we've tried a couple others and were disappointed. If there's a place you already like or want to try check them out, but in general it seems like good restaurants don't often work with Restaurants.com.
The reason these deals suck so much is because the restaurant gets literally zero of the gift certificate amount, so business owners/waiters will tend to hate you. If you think you get treated badly with a Groupon (where at least the business gets around half of the amount you spent to get the Groupon), good luck with one of these.
Not a bad deal by any means, though it's not uncommon to find these on ebay for $6-7.
The certificates are actually pretty simple to use, I don't understand why people are complaining about the restrictions.
On a side note, neither the $100 credit you are buying nor the individual restaurant certificates you redeem for expire. Also, if you never use a restaurant certificate you've bought, restaurant.com customer service (who are very helpful btw) will convert back into account credit which you can redeem somewhere else.
I have used restaurant.com in the past... make sure where you go still takes the card when you go there.. and make sure that you buy 25 dollar increments. Usually if you buy a 50 dollar card you need to spend 100, and so on... also each restaurant has restrictions on using the gift cards so read them carefully
but the deal is legit, and if used properly, these are awesome deals.
also they frequently have 25 dollar gift cards for like 4 dollars, so keep your eyes open
I actually love restaurant.com - I generally buy certs when they're 80% off. I've never had bad service when using one. Good way to try new places or go to a place you already know and love for a bit off the regular price.
