Amazing Discounts at San Jose Restaurants!

I would be lying if I said I didn't love food. My wife and I probably eat out 3-5 times per week, if not more. I've been to over 90 restaurants in Downtown San Jose, every single restaurant in Santana Row (at least twice), and have easily been to over 1,000 different restaurants in the Bay Area.

I have a little secret to share about saving a substantial amount of money dining out. There is a website called that allows you to purchase gift certificates at a discounted rate. For example, you can purchase a $25 gift certificate for $10. The catch is usually something along the lines of having to spend a total of $35 to use the certificate. So basically you're getting a net $15 discount off of your meal, and the restaurant gains a new potential customer.

Well, once and a while features promotions, and right now they have one that is INSANE. Select whichever certificates you want and when you are checking out use the discount code: NINETY. You will get a 90% discount on the price of your gift certificates! So in essence, a $25 gift certificate will cost you $1. There is absolutely no reason to pass this up. The promotion expires on 9/14, so get your "almost free" certificates while you still can.
