Debbie's Deals: Give Restaurant.com gift certificates for free

Give dozens of $10 gift certificates per day

It's time for one of my favorite deals of the year -- free Restaurant.com gift certificates.

Restaurant.com is letting you give your friends and family $10 restaurant gift certificates this holiday season for free. And you can give the gift certificates to several friends PER DAY! Your friends even get to pick the restaurant.

I've written about this Web site before. Restaurant.com is simply a Web site that sells gift certificates for restaurants. Typically you can buy a $25 gift certificate for about $10, but until Dec. 31, you can give $10 gift certificates for free.

Restaurant.com said it's giving away gift certificates to build community and lift people's spirits. The company's website said, "Give to friends. Give to neighbors. Give to families in the military. Give to teachers. Give to co-workers. Give to working moms. Give to those that would not otherwise make your holiday list, but most of all, give, and in doing so, enjoy with great pleasure, the very special gift of giving."

So what's the catch? Most of the restaurants have a minimum purchase. In my neighborhood, you typically have to buy $15 worth of food to use the $10 gift certificate. That's still a pretty good deal because we spend about $22 on dinner at my neighborhood Italian restaurant, now it's going to cost me $12 for one of my favorite dinners.

To take advantage of this deal, visit Restaurant.com's Feed it Forward website.
