Through tomorrow: $5 for $25 at Restaurant.com

Through tomorrow 8/26, use code CHOW to get $25 Restaurant.com gift certificates for just $5.00! (Note that this code should also work to reduce the price of any denomination gift certificates, not just the $25 ones.)

  • With code CHOW, you pay just $5.00 for a $25.00 gift certificate.

If you’re new to Restaurant.com, these are gift certificates you print out and use at the restaurant. To enter the code, add a certificate to your cart, then view your cart. In the top right is a box where you can put in the code. As always with these, read the fine print, because they work much more like coupons than gift certificates and there are minimum purchase requirements. Restaurant.com gift certificates no longer automatically add a gratuity on redemption, so please remember to tip on what you would have paid pre-coupon.

I just wanted to remind you guys that I’ve been keeping an ongoing alphabetical list of the Chicago Restaurant Coupons found in each Sunday’s Chicago Tribune. Each Saturday, I remove outdated listings and add the new coupons in my early Sunday edition of the new week’s Chicago Trib. You can access the Restaurant Coupons here, or always find it under the “newspaper coupons” menu at the top of the page.
