Dining Out -
Restaurant discounts and coupons are available from many local sources, for both fancy and everyday restaurants. So, be sure to use discounts whenever possible, and make sure to keep track of coupon expiration dates. Check your local newspaper for discounts and coupons for local restaurants. Also, make sure to check out the local mailers for restaurant coupons. New restaurants are particularly fond of using discounts and specials to attract customers. Look for restaurant discounts and coupons aimed at tourists. These can be found at the local visitors’ bureau or chamber of commerce, and in free magazines and brochures aimed at tourists. Also, make sure to check out the brochure racks at lobbies of local hotels for restaurant discounts. Keep in mind, you do not have to be a tourist or visiting business person to use these discounts.
Discounts and coupons for local restaurants can also be found on the Internet. Just do some searches and you are sure to find some savings. Many national restaurant chains offer discounts through their web sites. By signing up at their web sites, you may be able to receive special promotions and coupons. Internet sites like Restaurant.com offer discounts and discounted gift certificates at many restaurants. While there is an up front cost to purchasing these “coupons,” you will often be able to save more than 50% off the cost of your restaurant meal. Or try DinnerBroker.com, a free site that lets you book a table and lock in savings of up to thirty percent during off-
peak hours at many fine restaurants. Discounts can also be found at web sites like EntertainmentBook.com and Entertainment.com.
