Restaurant.com Review & Giveaway ~ Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide

For the longest time I had seen ads for restaurant.com and never really checked it out.  There were several times both my husband and I said we should check it out.  We were given the opportunity to give it a whirl for the Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide event.  One word:  Awesome.  Not only does restaurant.com have a huge list of participating restaurants, they got my husband and I to consider something other than our "usual" stops.  It's fun and exciting to try new restaurants, don't you think?  It also kind of sparked the fire to seek a babysitter instead of bringing the kids with us, like we'd normally do.

Restaurant.com gift cards would make excellent gifts for anyone.  Like I said, the list of participating restaurants is impressive.  Oh, and one very important fact, it's *affordable*!  This is one situation where you get more for less!  One of the things I really like about giving a restaurant.com gift card is that it allows the recipient the freedom of choice.  I might love Mexican food but the teacher I'm giving a gift to may not be so fond of it.  :P

Wondering how restaurant.com works?

It’s so easy. Just use our search to find a restaurant. Many of our participating restaurants have different offers, so pick the place that suits you best. We provide handy descriptions and even menus to help you decide. Follow the instructions for purchasing a gift certificate and print it out. In minutes you're all set for a night out for less!

Want to WIN a $50 restaurant.com gift card?  Find out how below:

Giveaway ENDS November 16, 2010 at 11:59pm.  The winner will be chosen via random.org and will be notified via e-mail.  They will have 48 hours to respond and claim their prize.  In the event that the prize is not claimed in the allocated time a new winner will be selected.

I would most likely include it in a group of gift cards that I would send to my daughter in CA for Christmas. She is hard to buy for, so I often send her a variety of cards, and since she eats out quite often, this would be perfect.
