They'd rather give $10 away for free than paying their employees benefits?

selz202 11-19-2012 10:02 AM

Thank you, in for 1.

Pretty sure the guy throwing a fit is only over NY Applebee's institutions.

dealdiver 11-19-2012 10:28 AM

anyone remembers what they (giftcardmall) did last year? they sent $40 GC.

ayaniga 11-19-2012 10:40 AM

One thing to keep in mind is some grocery stores are offering 4 times fuel perks on gift cards. So getting $40 in gift cards at a grocery store could get you more than $10 in gas savings...if you fuel up enough, or have multiple gas cans that you can fill up.

bryallan 11-19-2012 06:33 PM

Yuck. Applebee's gets most of their food sealed in plastic, pre-cooked and ready to reheat in the microwave. 20% off crap is still crap.

To be more accurate, although the cards were printed as $40, they actually had $50 loaded on them.

pipedreamer 11-19-2012 07:43 PM

I call these my "free tip" cards.

kensteele 11-19-2012 07:54 PM

applebees has almost the same thing going on at the establishment, buy a $50 gc and get a $10 "coupon". Yes the coupon expires, can't be used on the first visit, and must be used all at once, but it is risk-free for the risk adverse. i also realize pay 50 get 60 is not as sweet as pay 40 get 50 (20% v. 25%)

Ryan456789 11-19-2012 09:28 PM

Not a bad deal, might as well. Go in for some drinks now and then, their half price apps and $2 long islands isn't too bad.

12 posts to hit a slickdealer finally.

20% off 2-for-1 happy hour. If you live in a college town or have local specials it is even better.

Deadboyx 11-20-2012 03:03 AM

reccax626 11-20-2012 03:14 AM

People actually eat at applebees?

NiceWithWords 11-20-2012 03:32 AM

I wouldn't think this would make FP. This would be a better deal at $30-35 for $50. I mean come on, it's Applebees =/

Ezio 11-20-2012 03:38 AM

How the fark did this hit front page? $10 off $50 at a super-specific restaurant chain?

franklin4teeny 11-20-2012 03:40 AM

These threads are good for finding those self-righteous people who belong on my ignore list.

dealgate 11-20-2012 03:40 AM

Sweet! $40 for a $50 gift card to buy $10 worth of food at the worst chain restaurant on the planet!

schmizz 11-20-2012 03:48 AM

You couldn't pay me to eat at Applebees! it is one of the few restaurants that has consistently sucked for actual decades. Even if this was for a good restaurant, there is no way it's a slickdeal. Especially not when you can get 50% off with Groupon and Living Social, etc. to much better eateries. And every restaurant there is offers some kind of gift card deal that is competitive with this offer.

Repped! Never had a decent meal at Applebees's

mikemwb 11-20-2012 04:45 AM

Walk in to an Appleebees kitchen once...look around...now count the microwaves, make sure you are not holding a drink because you will need both hands to count.

They get their ribs in precooked in plastic bags, throw them in the microwave and then finish on the grill...yummy

G60roddo 11-20-2012 04:47 AM

Wow, so much hate. As someone else said, Applebees has a bar... even if you personally don't like their food (obviously many do) who can complain about $10 off $50 in drinks?

clearanceman 11-20-2012 05:01 AM

And yet where are all these food critics when McDonalds has a $1 item for free and the thread goes 300+? WTF? And you realize you can buy ebay gift cards from the grocery store (Kroger 4X points right now) and apply the ebay gift card to the applebees gift card. I bought some ebay and amazon cards last night. Every $500 is $70 off on gas. On top of Amex 5% on groceries, ebay bucks, and 1% ebay FW CB.

While Im about saving a buck, I worked for minimum wage once and always dreamed about healthcare. Not going to support some company who stops hiring in response to having to pay out benefits.

Make sure you don't buy Papa Johns then too. And Dennys. And any other business that is honest about their employment costs and doesn't try to secretly just pass the cost of Obamacare to the consumer. And make sure you complain about these companies in every deal thread because people appreciate constant updates of your activism.

Boo hoo hoo, I have to make sure my employees don't die in the gutter of basic healthcare needs. I miss the days when I could just pay them minimum wage and no benefits. Now my dirt-cheap food is a slight percentage more expensive to produce in terms of labor cost. My poor stockholders. Boo hoo mother f***ing hoo.

You activists never realize that companies will make up that cost somewhere. They'll either lay people off, increase prices, some business will move off shore. You are always trying "stick it to these companies" and in reality they never get anything stuck to them, it's always the consumer and employees that pay for the federal government's activism.

"You activists" is pretty funny. I work in energy trading for an investment bank. I understand economics and regulatory actions pretty well, I think.

The federal government trying to shore up our completely broken healthcare system is not "activism", it's the long overdue action that is needed to keep middle and lower income people from being financially annihilated every time they have a medical issue.

If employers need to pass on a higher cost to their end users due to increased cost of labor, and remember that we are talking about fractions of the net cost of the product here, then they are free to do so. The market will either pay it, or not pay it. If the whole market has to face increased costs, which they would in the mind of the right wing of this country, then prices for all products will rise. If that is in fact the case, then would not all workers be affected and thus also have increased cash flow to spend on those products by way of not spending excessive amounts on healthcare? Hmmmmmm?

If companies cannot make a satisfactory profit after paying their employees a living wage, then they do not have a viable business, period. Net US corporate profits last quarter were $1.65T, having doubled (yes, 100% growth) since Q1 2004, so if you cry poor on behalf of the impoverished major corporate entities of America, I am going to laugh, and laugh, and laugh.

There is more to economics than the sticker price, chum, and there is more to this issue than crybaby Fox News-watching executives throwing public temper tantrums.


Also, support your locally-owned restaurants.

IMO, you should set up multiple accounts and buy this deal several times.

Going to reply to my above post with a rational and well-reasoned response, or just going to go back to staring obediently at Megyn Kelly while she utters pointy lies that get your blood pressure rising?

jctone 11-20-2012 07:13 AM

Please keep real politics off the board. At SD, we are about the politics of the deal and not the real politics.

Keep it real!

Businesses learn to adapt with the changes and challenges. Those who cannot are gone.

You're not allowed to patronize any business that doesn't live up to the standards chosen by democrat activists.

ELIZA1909 11-20-2012 07:24 AM

in for 1! Why so much threadcrap? It is a giftcard. Don't buy one if you hate it so.

If you're paying $4 for a pint of Bud Light, it's crap. My friend used to work as a bartender at a small chain with an excellent rep (their food was good, actually), and almost all of their drinks were pre-mixed/light on the alcohol. That's why she was able to be a "bartender"--it didn't require any actual training to open pre-mixed bottles and pour them into glasses.

Besides, who wants to hang out at Applebees for drinks? There are plenty of better places to have a few drinks, and a 20% discount on drinks is easy to get (Happy Hour).

Like others have said, this would be more "slick" if it was 30-50% off. But 20%, and the board of fare isn't good to begin with? Pass.

Because it's FP. FP deals are supposed to be the best of the best, and this deal is cool to warm even if you like eating at Applebees (20% off is a decent discount, but nothing to write home about).

Agreed on that too...pretty much any vacuum is going to be fine, especially since most people just park them in the broom closet and forget about em!
