This is a guest post by Zippy at Champagne Living who is yet again spilling the beans on how to “life the good life for less”!

Have you ever wondered how your friends and neighbors go out to dinner so often? You’ve seen the coupons that are listed here on Freebies 4 Mom for the likes of a free appetizer from Chili’s, free meals on your birthday, kids eat free deals, etc. But how do you enjoy a weekly meal at a NICE restaurant without breaking the budget?

There are a few companies that sell restaurant (and other) gift certificates at 50% off, BOGO (buy one get one free) and at even DEEPER discounts. You may have seen or heard about some of them while looking over your favorite radio station, television station or newspaper’s website. Here’s how to find these deals in YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD.

  • Half Off Deals – Half Off Deals is just what it says. They offer half priced gift certificates for your local restaurant, golf, spa, theater, etc. With over 41,000 gift certificates available throughout the country, you can be sure to find one near you. You can even sign up for their Certificate Tooter and get customized e-mails when they certificates that YOU WANT in stock.
  • NeoFill – Straight from the company that fulfills the certificates at half off is a page that includes Deals by Category, City and State. This is a wonderful resource to have whether you’re dining near home or if you happen to be traveling, as you can purchase certificates from places you’ll be visiting and SAVE, SAVE, SAVE.
  • Incentrev – This is another company that partners with the media for great half price certificates. Unfortunately, Incentrev does not have a clearinghouse to make it easy to find certificates in your area, but I’ve devised a way to FIND OUT which media outlets offer these great deals. Simply google your state name along with :incentrev.com and you’ll find the CALL letters for the radio or television station that offers these certificates. Then simply go to that station’s website & look for the deals.
  • Restaurant.com – Restaurant.com offers gift certificates at even DEEPER discounts than 50% off. Keep checking to see if there are Promo Codes that you can use to score 70%-80% off of your favorite places to dine.

Enjoy your dinner out and Bon Apetite! For more ways toLive Rich for Less visit Zippy at Champagne Living.
