ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., Sept. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Restaurant.com, the company that offers affordable dining experiences at more than 18,000 restaurants nationwide, announced today its 90 percent off dollar-stretching megadeal has been extended through the end of today, Friday, September 30.
Thursday's over-the-top, one-day savings celebration was a smashing success. The company saved customers more than $10 million as of 5 p.m. Thursday evening. The immense popularity of the one-day deal prompted Restaurant.com to extend its 90 percent off super sale one more day.
"Our customers need only one George Washington---you know what I mean, just a single dollar to score a $25 certificate," said Restaurant.com CEO Cary Chessick. "That's $24 in your pocket and a great night out with friends or family."
Economists who believe the dollar is shrinking have not seen this deal. According to the Consumer Price Index, what cost one-dollar in 1902 would cost about $25 today. The 90 percent off megadeal offered by Restaurant.com is most likely one of the best buys in more than a century.
"Given recent market volatility, even risky investment strategies such as playing the lottery, betting big at the racetrack, or panning for gold may seem attractive," said Restaurant.com President Christopher Krohn. "But for just $1, investing in a Restaurant.com certificate can pay dividends the very next time you plan a night out."
Consumers can save 90 percent on already discounted Restaurant.com Gift Certificates by entering promo code WOW at checkout. The offer expires at 11:59 p.m. (Central Time) September 30, but Restaurant.com dining certificates never expire.
In addition to the wildly popular $25 denomination, this deal applies to all certificate denominations offered on Restaurant.com, which include values of $10, $50, $75 and $100. For instance, $50 gift certificates are just $2 and $100 gift certificates are just $4 today only. No kidding. Consumers are encouraged to act now before the company's bigwigs change their minds. A deal this good doesn't come around very often!
Restaurant.com helps deepen relationships and create lasting memories one dining experience at a time. The company offers savings at more than 18,000 restaurants nationwide with more than 45,000 daily gift certificate options. Restaurant.com brings family and friends together to relax, converse and enjoy dining out.
