ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., Aug. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Restaurant.com, the nation's largest restaurant deal site, debuts a new $5 dining certificate for only $2. Available every day at more than 3,000 locations nationwide, the $5 certificate makes it easy for diners to upgrade their meal and is perfect for lunch-for-one, late night bites or when going out to eat just means dessert with friends. With a minimum spend of only $7.50, the $5 Restaurant.com dining certificates makes it easy to save on virtually every order – breakfast, lunch, dinner or anything in between.
"Restaurant.com customers love to trade up at meal time and snack time," said President and Chief Marketing Officer Christopher Krohn. "With our new $5 deals, diners essentially get a $3 free upgrade every time they use one. Whether you choose an added cup of oatmeal for your morning breakfast, upgrade a basic salad at lunch with fresh avocado and pecans, or upsize your late night burrito run to grande, there are now thousands of new ways to get more for less, every day."
Now diners can trade the paper napkins for cloth, the plastic container for a plate and add the extra bacon for the same price as a typical quick-service meal. With nearly 2/3 of working Americans buying their lunch each day, according to the January 2012 Workonomix survey by Accounting Principals, the $5 Restaurant.com certificate gives these daily diners the chance to save while getting more out of lunch.
