6 tips to save on dining during travel
Groupon. This may be the easiest way to save money when you travel, on more than just food. You must create an account to use the service, but the site offers 50% savings on food, entertainment, spa treatments and sometimes even on lodging. Be sure you read the fine print for exclusions and expiration dates. Please use my referral code if you use Groupon from this site. Thank you!
Entertainment Books. These coupon books have been around forever! Today, you can purchase the traditional coupon book or upgrade to the mobile version. Simply log in to the region you’ll be visiting to discover restaurant, shopping and attraction coupon offers. Do the coupons include places you want to go? Then, click and save when you dine for less! If you prefer the book, order at least two weeks before your trip to allow sufficient shipping time.
- Read the fine print before you buy. Some coupons restrict time of use (not on weekends or dinner only) while others expire (usually at least six months out).
- Do a “google search” of restaurant.com coupon codes. This site regularly offers discounts off the price listed on the site. Enter the code at checkout for greater savings. (I usually get $25 coupons for $4, a $21 savings off menu price)
- Some restaurants factor the tip when you use the coupon. Check your receipt to see if tip is already included. If not, DO TIP your server on the FULL PRICE of your dinner. You may be saving money, but they are working based on the full order. Thank you!
