To get 80% off your dining certificates with restaurant.com, use coupon code "DINNER" at checkout. Restaurant.com Linky [restaurant.com]
This code is different than the code that was posted 4 days ago.
I hope this comes in handy for some of you!

Enjoy! Cool

Strip Steak at Mandalay bay. I am picking up a coupon for them right now. They are a bit expensive, and as funny as it sounds I can't vouch for their steaks, but I had a kobe burger from there and it was the tastiest burger I've had in my life. Every burger I have I attempt to get that flavor again but have yet to. An additional bonus is their coupon is for 2 entrees at 50 bucks, not minimum spend; their burgers with sides were under 20 from what I remember, so with drinks you can spend 10 bucks on an amazing meal.

BEWARE! Do not purchase any further gift cards or certificates (especially if you might need a "refund" on one) until you read this thread about restaurant.com's bait/switch practices with exisiting certificate credits or gift card use at the thread above.Be informed first! they do not honor certificates that are reissued or gift cards at the www.restaurant.com website, but redirect you to a "alternate" website with far fewer offerings, preventing you from redeeming YOUR purchase the way you intended to possibly.

Do you post this every time someone posts a restaurant.com coupon code, or are you just raining on my thread?
I've personally saved a lot of $$ using this site. There have been times that restaurant managers have told me that they no longer took them, but many of them made an exception and took mine. Few have denied us outright. For the $2 or so it costs for a $25 certificate (using a coupon code), most of them pay off and it saves many of us good money. Use Paypal if you are worried about their business practices. It's easy enough to dispute a charge with them, as it is with most credit cards.

no, what I've posted is very important info affecting ANYONE that in the last few years a) has had a "certificate reissued" due to their restaurant going out of business or refusing to take it b) bought a "restaurant.com" gift card thinking they could get any certificate at the site listed in your op

if you have a problem with what I posted, you shouldn't. not much point in a deal, if you're not potentially going to get what you paid for if you have a problem, even at 80% off. Alert the mods otherwise.

and Paypal isn't going to help me with certificates/gift cards I bought in 2010.

I guess I haven't experienced what you are claiming they do. When a local Indian restaurant went out of business, I was able to get a credit for my unused certificate from restaurant.com and got a new one for the restaurant I wanted while using that credit. I don't think that my choice of restaurants was limited while using my credit.
Tell you what... next time, just say that there are some negative issues regarding this vendor that a person might be interested in reading about and post the link. Your BEWARE warning reads like the cancer warning on a pack of cigarettes. If you don't like my criticism of the way you present yourself in my thread... well... I don't think we are going to find common ground on this issue.

fair enough....since there are 80-90% off codes for this merchant as many as 3x a month posted on SD, and 1000's of SD'ers have used this site (rest.com) for a long, long time, this info I'm alerting people to is pretty important. I should note, I too have OP'ed these deals over the years, and up to now, have been a fan of rest.com. But I can no longer give my personal thumbs up to buying anything from them.

Thanks.

You're not taking into account that it works both ways. I concur that idealmeal does not have certain restaurants, but there are a couple strong benefits to idealmeal certs. Firstly: I've bought plenty of $25 certs from restaurant.com initially priced at $10 for $2 after 80% off (or $1 after 90% when it goes that low), the restaurant refused to allow me to use them, been issued replacement gift certs from idealmeal (along with additional sometimes to compensate for lost time / frustration -- depends on the cust service rep), then used those to buy $25 certs priced at $20 due to popularity. Also, I've used them to buy certs at the beginning of the month for places that sell out within 8 hours on restaurant.com (they usually replenish quantities at the beginning of the month).

I live in LA where restaurants are plentiful, and they're also useful when I'm vacationing in SF and Vegas. And unlike groupon and other spinoff deal-a-day sites, there's no limit to the quantity you can purchase, they don't require a large upfront cost, and there's no expiration to worry about (restaurants do drop off the program sometimes, but I've had luck using certs from 2007).

So, as the old saying goes, quitcherbitchin. The general consensus in this thread is that you're threadcrapping all over it. vomit

hey pal, my issues are very legitimate. Not threadcrapping and not bitching, I directed people over to the other discussion thread so they are aware. Get your head out of your read end, and do what's best for you, but in my situation, it's a bait and switch and I'm losing money, as are many other people in the same predicament.
