Up to $75 Worth of Free Food!

It appears that LivingSocial is rolling out a “portal” of their own called Restaurants Plus – but, unlike the online version, all you have to do is register your card and remember to use it at participating stores.

The current offer is valid in Atlanta, DC, and San Francisco only – though I am looking into whether or not that is actually true. Here’s the summary:

Restaurants Plus

You can participate once per day through Jan 3 for up to $15 cash back, which is a total of $75 in free food. I would expect that you can simply purchase a $15 gift card every day and redeem it all at once or when convenient. That’s what I’d do if I was in a participating city!

An Easy $75 Worth of Credit Card Spend – and Free Miles!

This is my favorite type of offer. You’ll spend $15 and they’ll give you $15 back. That’s a manufactured-spend dream! This spend should trigger miles, cash back, or whatever promotion you’re working on. If you’re trying to meet a spend minimum (such as spend $500, get $100 back on Chase Freedom) this will count toward that as well!

Will you use this offer?

If you have a bachelor or bachelorette, bridal shower, or any other activities coming up and any of these restaurants are potential venues, it might be worth trying to stock up on gift cards to see if the promotion comes through! Or, maybe you could use the gift cards as welcome gifts to your out-of-town guests.

Leave a comment if you’re able to participate. I’d love to hear how it works and how you’re using the credit!

Bridesmaid Dresses, Up to 85% Off!

One of my favorite places for wedding-guest-dress shopping is none other than David’s Bridal. The store runs continuous sales, and when you only need to find a dress in your size…it’s a great option!

Big discounts at David's Bridal!

The recommendation for those of you actively planning a wedding is to collect your bridesmaids’ sizes and be ready to jump on a sale when it comes up. Ask your gals to visit David’s Bridal and try on a long and short dress, maybe in two different fabrics, to make sure you have the right size – bridal sizing often differs from regular sizing. Consider whether you want everyone to match or if you like variety – it will give you a better chance of finding all the sizes in one particular style. Lastly, make sure you have the credit to cover all the dress purchases at once; you might miss out if you wait on everyone to purchase their own dresses, and what a disaster that could turn into!

Also, keep an eye out for “Final Sale” items, as these cannot be returned or exchanged.

I was unable to find any additional coupons, portal bonuses, or discounted gift cards for David’s Bridal. But that doesn’t mean they’re not out there…do let me know if you find something!

 

 

So, did you find a great deal at David’s Bridal? Never pay retail!
