Ah, summertime! Lazy days by the pool or sprinkler and lots of outdoor work to be done often mean less time for cooking and more eating out. If that's the case for you (and even if it isn't), why not save some money by browsing www.restaurant.com? The site offers discount certificates for many nearby restaurants, and right now there's an 80 percent off sale.
Just visit the site, search for a restaurant you frequent (or would like to try), indicate the dollar amount for the certificate you want, and then enter the word "FUN" in the coupon code section at checkout. You'll get a certificate via e-mail, and all you have to do is print it out and bring it with you when you dine at that restaurant.
Many restaurants offer a $25 certificate for $10. With the 80 percent off sale, the price would be $8. But be sure to read the fine print. Many restaurants exclude alcohol from the total and/or require your bill to reach a certain amount before the certificate can be applied.
The sale runs July 7 through July 12, so buy soon.
Here are some area restaurants that offer certificates on restaurant.com:
- Copper Creek Sports Grill and Bar in Farmington Hills
- Cafe Cortina in Farmington Hills
- Library Sports Pub in Novi
- Rugby Grille in Birmingham
