I just bought $200 worth of restaurant gift certificates for only $16!!! Boy do I love bargains like that! Those are gonna come in handy for date nights with my hubby. These would also make for great (and cheap!) gifts for Christmas.

Want to know how you can get this great deal too? (Boy, I sound like an infomercial.)
Go to and type in your zip code to search for participating restaurants in your area. Then add a gift certificate to your shopping cart and then type in the discount code SURPRISE and click on APPLY.

I bought 2 $25 gift certificates to four of our favorite restaurants and cannot believe I only paid $16! Yes, there are some fine-print things to wade through ($35 minimum charge, only one gift certificate can be used per restaurant per month, etc) but if you're careful and read closely, you can REALLY find some great deals for nights out at your favorite places to eat. I think we'll save these to use when it's still a week til payday and we're just really craving a night out on the town.
That tends to happen a lot when you only get paid once a month. :)

I am definitely going to bookmark this website. I looked at it and one of our favorite fish houses is on it. With 5 of us it is easy to spend $35 or more! Thanks for sharing this.

Wow...i am just so leery of things like this...but if YOU say it's okay...then maybe I'll give it a try.
Ps. What is up with that photobucket add right in the middle of your text?

I'm usually a little leery of this type of thing too but I got the info from a reliable source so I thought I'd give it a try. I'll be sure to post how it turns out when we actually use one of them.

And I don't know what's up w/the photobucket ad. I can't see it and I certainly don't want it there. ???? Weird.

Did you ever get an email from me? I've tried to send it twice now. Let me know. Love ya!
