Get Discounts to Boston Restaurants with Restaurant.com Promo Code!


Restaurant.com is offering $25 gift certificates for $3 with promo code THREE which is valid for today, January 16, 2016 only. This is the lowest price I’ve seen lately for the $25 Restaurant.com certificates and is a good stock of price if you like these certificates.

The promo code will work for different values too, so you don’t have to purchase a $25 voucher to see savings and you can purchase as many restaurant certificates as you want!

Make sure you read the terms of each individual restaurant before you buy. Typically you need to meet a minimum before you can use your voucher (For example, must spend $50, or must spend $35, food only) but the terms are easy to find before you buy the voucher and the terms will vary depending on the restaurant.

I’ve always had a positive experience with Restaurant.com and it’s a great way to explore local restaurants without paying full price at a restaurant.
