Clean your Plate for Less: I love a good deal, so whenever you see CP4Less in a post, I will list tips I’ve actually used that save you money. There are a few websites I consistently use to excellent effect. Their inventory rolls over frequently, so certain restaurants may not be available when you check, but they’ll have others. In general, it’s a good idea to get on the email list and Facebook of restaurants you like. You’ll find most will email out coupons and advertise specials this way. Happy saving!
*I am not affiliated with these sites in any way, they’re just great sites I’ve come across that are too good not to share.*
Restaurant.com: gift certs that you purchase online and print out. They’re instant, which is nice for when you need one right away. There are restrictions (such as days you can use and minimum purchase amount), but the restrictions are very clear and easy to follow. I recommend getting on the email list, as they send out discount codes. The lowest is 80% off, and occurs about once a month (for example, a $25 gift cert costs $10, but for one week during the month, you’ll be emailed a code to get it for only $2).
Good Eats NH: gift certs for half off (plus 10% shipping) that you purchase online and receive by snail mail. They mail them out promptly, but it takes a little pre-planning.
Taste of the Seacoast: same concept as Good Eats, smaller inventory
Birthday Savings: read my post on freebies for your bday
Couptopia: every few days, Couptopia (a NH business themselves) features a NH business and sells gift certs for at least 50% off. No shipping fees because you print them out yourself. There are restrictions and expiration dates, but they are clearly marked. *They donate 5% of their total revenues each month to a different non-profit organization.
