80% off at Restaurants.com

I just got an email that right now through February 28th you can get a Restaurant.com gift certificate for 80% off. You can use your certificate after Feb 28th but it must be ordered by then for the deal.

That is a $25 dining certificate for only $2!!!

At the checkout enter coupon code: DINE to get your savings.

For the best deal use your free cashbaq account and get 25% back on your purchase. (you can enter to get a new account and get $5 for signing up and then 25%  back). This would make your certificate only $1.50 or THEY WOULD PAY YOU $3.50 if you are signing up for cashbaq for the first time for your certificate!)

Here is how it would work at a local restaurant near us (Woody’s on the Water)

$25 gift card bought through cashbaq (on the cashbaq site click on “shop through store” then restaurant.com) = $1.50

Minimum $35 purchase not including tax and gratuity = $35

Minus the $25 certificate = -$25

TOTAL COST FOR A $35 dollar dinner out = $11.50 + tip THAT IS a cheap DATE!

Entertainment book for $2.25


Entertainment Book is still running a great deal if you purchase through Cashbaq. There are lots of great coupons in here if you plan to eat out (even once) this next year, or go to any movies / activities in your area  it will pay for itself.

Currently you can get the 2009 Entertainment book for the Puget sound area for only $2.25 (including shipping).

I took advantage of this offer a few months ago and am excited to be saving money on some “fun” activities this next  year.

Here is how it works:

1. Sign up for  cashbaq.

Cashbaq is a free service that gives you cashback and coupons for shopping at online stores, similar to ebates. It is totally free to sign up.

2. You will automatically be given a $5 bonus for signing up

3. On the dropdown menu on the far left select there is a drop down menu that says “shop by store”. Select the store, “entertainment book”

4. Under that store you will see that Cashbaq will give you a $10 incentive for buying the entertainment book. Then click the coupon “save 35%”. This will take you to the entertainment book website where you will purchase the book for $16.25 + $1 S & H for a total of $17.25.

5. How do I get my money back? Make sure you fill out your account info so Cashbaq knows where to send your money, to a paypal account or a check to your house. Cahshbaq will credit your account within two weeks for your purchase, it will show up as pending. They will give you $10 for buying the book and $5 for being a first time member. So the math is you pay out of pocket $17.25 you get back from Cashbaq $15.  It can take up to 90 days for the money to go from pending to payable but I had no problems with this. After that happens they will mail you a check for $15.

You can use Cashbaq for any shopping online, just go to their website first before you buy and they will give you money incentives and or a percentage of cash back  for purchases you were already making
