SOOOO...I went to ebates, found that they are giving 15% cash back on restaurants.com purchases and there was a coupon for purchase of a $25 certificate for $4. I found a restaurant I was interested in, read all the fine print and purchased it. When I went to do so, I realized that paypal is one of the options for purchasing. AND, I had enough in my paypal account from the money I've earned on this blog to pay for the gift certificate. Thanks readers!
Now, this process took a few extra steps. BUT, I paid $4 instead of $10, and am getting 15% of that back. Plus, I didn't even see the $ because it was sitting in my paypal account. I think it was worth it considering the entire process including scheduling a reservation and printing out a map took 20 minutes.
Our regular babysitter is scheduled, she babysits in exchange for doing her laundry and getting a home cooked meal. So, for under $25 (I'm guessing after viewing the menu) we should have a great night out!
