Arlington Heights, IL (PRWEB) September 9, 2009
As the recession lingers, Americans are reminded that every dollar counts when it comes to spending. That's why Restaurant.com, the trusted and valued source connecting diners and restaurants nationwide, announced today the launch of an unheard-of promotion that cuts the cost of already economical gift certificates by 90-percent for 11,000 restaurants nationwide.
Starting today and running for 99 hours, diners can visit Restaurant.com to find a restaurant gift certificate, enter the discount code "NINETY" when prompted during purchase and take an additional 90-percent off more than 20,000 gift certificate options. The sale enables a single dollar to purchase a printable gift certificate that's worth $25 at the participating restaurant. Similarly, a $100 gift certificate that typically costs $40 is available for $4.
"We wanted this offer to be a major once-in-a-lifetime opportunity by offering consumers value unlike anything they've seen before," said Cary Chessick, president and CEO of Restaurant.com. "Since 09/09/09 only comes around once, we are marking the date, in these times, with a sale that reminds people that they can still go out to eat and enjoy a great meal with friends and family."
The sale provides consumers the most bang for their buck at the largest selection of restaurants in the country. In addition to $25 and $100 denominations, Restaurant.com offers other gift certificate values including $10, $50 and $75 to accommodate different party sizes, all of which are available for reduced prices through the sale. For example, a $50 gift certificate that normally cost $20 is available for $2 through the "09/09/09" promotion.
"Restaurant.com consistently provides rich savings everyday to savvy shoppers. I see a lot of deals from retailers and was really taken aback in a great way with this promotion, an astonishing 90-percent off," said Becky Ford, online shopping expert and founder of CompareRewards.com. "As a long time customer and supporter of Restaurant.com, I hope people will take advantage of this unique offer and reap the massive benefits."
To explore the entire selection of restaurants at Restaurant.com, diners can go to http://www.Restaurant.com, select a location, view restaurants alphabetically and access their profile, which includes Restaurant background, as well as interior photos, hours of operations, contact information, directions and more. Once selected, individual restaurant Web pages show gift certificate denominations and available quantities.
"Restaurant.com affords me the opportunity to dine out frequently," said long-time Restaurant.com customer Allison Strickland. "It's nice to be able to take advantage of not only great savings, but to be able to patronize restaurants I've always wanted to try. I also know the restaurants will benefit when I dine too."
To take advantage of the 90-percent off offer, after selecting a restaurant on Restaurant.com, diners enter the discount code "NINETY" when prompted, can purchase a $25 gift certificate for as little as $1 and print for immediate use. Diners present their Restaurant.com gift certificate upon arrival at their chosen restaurant, which is then honored on-site and deducted from the total dining bill.
