I love to say this when I am out dining with friends: “Wait! Let me get the bill! I have a coupon!

It is true: I love a good food coupon. I subscribe to almost every local and national discount site. I enjoy exploring new dining locales – especially when it does not break my bank.

I recently tapped in to Restaurant.com to dine at a discount at Robert’s Maine Grill in Kittery, Maine. (I do so ever love Robert’s Oyster Night and the lobster rolls served on a herbed biscuit.)

We are also regulars at Biddeford, Maine’s Jewel of India (A Restaurant.com location): The mango chicken is my go-to, “I am too tired to cook tonight” dish. Restaurant.com cards offer significant discounts (sometimes up to 50%) off the regular price of dinner.

My coupons make those “take-out food nights” even more appealing.

Moms always love thoughtful gifts - they always write "Thank-you" cards too...

Restaurant.com is offering several last-minute Mother’s Day specials and Dinner & A Movie deals.

My family and I are always on the hunt for experience-related gifts. We (and most everyone we know) already have too much stuff, enough bric-a-brac and plenty of tchotchkes. This year, we started giving gift cards to sites, so that our friends and family could get in on the discounts and great meals.

Presents like Restaurant.com gift cards are perfect and appealing to us.

Restaurant.com cards are great for an experience gift, versus the tried-and-true Mother’s Day candles, flowers and candy. Restaurant deals are countrywide: The website hosts both local and national locations that accept the gift cards.




The Restaurant.com specials start today (Wednesday, May 7. 2014)- great for last minute folks like myself. You’ll have to hurry though, as the deal is on for a short amount of time.

If your mom is BOTH an experience and a gift-in-hand kinda gal (the aforementioned candles, flowers  & candy), try these ideas:

1) Spa Lovers: Stick a Restaurant.com in a basket with soaps, lotions and nail polish.

2.) Wine Enthusiasts: Grab a bottle of her favorite bubbly and wrap it up with the gift card.

3.) A Spring Bouquet: Blossoms liven up the house and brighten the day. Gift a gift card in with a fresh bunch of seasonal flowers.

Restaurant.com is also offering and ULTIMATE PINTEREST MOTHER’S DAY GIVEAWAY: Share what your mom means to you and you could be one of five winners selected to win a $500 Mom’s Night Out Package.

A hug with my proud mom.

Happy Mother’s Day to everyone! Share your love – It’s as easy as saying, “I love you.”
