Saturday, August 8, 2009 80% off sale

July was our vacation month before my husband started back up in medical school the beginning of August. While I didn't do too much bargain shopping and couponing, we did find great deals for eating out. One of our favorite things to use is You can purchase vouchers for different restaurants for a fraction of the cost. For example, you can purchase a $25 voucher for only $10. Usually you have to spend at least $35 at the restaurant to use the voucher, but you still save $15 over what you would have spent if you went there without anything.

We usually wait for's sales. About once a month or so they will make things 80% off their normal price, so instead of paying $10 for a $25 voucher, you only pay $2. They are having one of these sales right now through August 13. If you use the code PORTION, you can get 80% off. If you have Borders Rewards Perks, you can use these towards your purchase, or you can go through Ebates to get 15% back. Either way, you're in for a great deal.

Something that we discovered last month getting some certificates--some restaurants don't have the minimum purchase requirement over the voucher amount. We found several in the San Diego area that only required that we have $25 worth of food to use a $25 certificate (tax and tip are not included), so essentially we only payed $2 for a $25 meal plus tip. I don't know what other cities have these, but if you are in the San Diego area, there are several. Here is a picture of us at one last month. It was a fun little barbeque roadhouse that had my daughter's name (Abby/Abbey) and my favorite state (Texas) in the title. I just couldn't pass it up.
