Thread Details

Restaurant.com is offering $150 certificates for only $20 for callers.

Phone number - 855.777.0751


You can also email one of their reps with your phone number and they'll call you back. That way you don't have to wait on the phone.

Email - JGodovskiy@restaurant.com


They sent me an email when I told them I'll have to think about it. Here's the email -

As we previously discussed, we are running a special where you can buy $150 worth of credit for only $20. With this credit, you can redeem it at the face value of the certificate. You can keep redeeming the credit until your balance is at $0. This credit is used to purchase discount dining certificates. If you are interested in this offer, please provide me with your phone number and the best time to reach you. I will then be able to give you a call back, so that you can avoid any wait time when calling our Customer Service Department. I am available 8:30AM – 5:00PM Mondays – Fridays.


I called them because I was having an issue redeeming a previous certificate and they were able to redeem it for me and while on the phone they made me this offer.

Looks like a good deal considering the best I have seen offered on their website for $150 certificate is for $30. You don't have to the spend $150 certificate in one place. It can be split amongst multiple restaurants.

Just to note, as it can be confusing sometimes, their certificate is usually for 50% off. For example, if you bought a gift certificate to a restaurant from their website for $20, you have to spend at least $40 at the restaurant.

Happy dining!

haha take it easy bro. I am comparing it to the previous deals I have seen for them. It's a good deal for ME because I frequent some of the restaurants that are on that list and 50% is a good deal. It comes out to be 13 cents for $1 in certificate value. I haven't seen it any better from them. Works out great because I usually get $10 certificates (which would be .13*10 = $1.30) and buy $20 worth of stuff, so instead of paying $20, I am really paying $11.30. I don't know what your definition is of a good deal, but that's a solid deal.

they are "technically" gift cards with numerous exclusions and stipulations.
They are a complete ripoff and waste of time. The restaurants are usually local, will be invalid for alcohol, will have automatic 18% or more tip added to bill, cannot be used for certain days/times, etc, etc
STAY AS FAR AWAY AS POSSIBLE

Just used it for takeout without any issues. They took the certificate and subtracted it from the bill. Looks like a success to me.

I will say this though. I should have probably mentioned in my post, this is the best deal I have seen directly from the site. At the end of the day, still better than paying full fare.

I can vouch for this. I tried using a $10 "Gift Certificate" today and the cashier informed me "that it was never issued". I printed it less than 7 days ago and sure enough, restaurant.com wiped out a couple dozen of my certificates. I emailed them and still no response. I've been sitting on $100+ in credit on their site for years, trying to find new ways to use it and they have finally resorted to simply stealing it back.

Stay far, far away.
