i just spent 150$ for 1875$

Check out this article at Consumerist/LifeHacker!
http://lifehacker.com/5069261/buy-25-restaurant-gift-cards-for-2

Basically Restaurant.com is selling their gift cards at a discount right now. 40$ cards for 25$ and the most expensive one $375 for $150. Well, according to the article, if you also type in the discount code TREATS it takes another 80% off.

Sweet deal. Worth it for City Hall and Good, as they're brunches are off the hook!

Just did the same thing!

a lot of places have some sorta cash minimum
but shit, even if everyone kicks in 5 bucks for the first entree and then you lay down the hurt? i think there are gonna be some unhappy restaurateurs over this shit.

Re: a lot of places have some sorta cash minimum
but wait a second- should i buy 2 $375 gift cards, or more cards in a smaller denomination? if i whip out a $375, will i be obliged to spend it all at the same place at the same time?

dunno
smaller cards spread out the love i guess - i plan on spending mad loot on booze after buying an app and and entree.

Re: dunno
i was all set to buy 20 $50 certificates but i started reading the fine print and it was a little prohibitive- only one coupon per restaurant per month, a lot of places wont' redeem them on weekends, a lot of places won't let you redeem for booze, etc.... the comments on lifehacker said that these deals come up fairly often (although mostly at 60%, which is still a good deal) so i may wait and see on this.

hello good sirs. I would like you to provide me with $500 worth of beer for which I, in turn, through my intermediaries, will give you $40.

this is probably why they have the once-a-month clause
even if i spread these out over a year, it will be a year's worth of good times.

Just find someone to take out. I'd volunteer, but we've never met. XD
