On Friday, we skipped lunch in favor of popcorn at the movies. We had purchased the 1yr refillable drink cups, so we got 44oz sodas for $3 each and I had a coupon that gave a free popcorn if a drink is purchased, which we were able to upgrade to the obscenely large size for $1. For dinner we used a $10 Groupon for $20 worth of Japanese food. On Saturday Sonic had their foot long hot dogs on half price and drinks are half price after 2pm, so we went and got 5 foot longs, 2 44oz drinks and a snack pack of onion rings for $13. We saved hot dogs for lunch on Sunday and Monday. Saturday night I had the 50% off code for Papa Johns, so we picked up two large fully loaded pizzas for $15, ate part of each and saved the rest for dinner Sunday and Monday. So for $45 we got lunch and dinner for two for Fri, Sat, Sun and Mon. That's about par for my course, I never pay full price for anything.

I did! I took my fiance and two of her out-of-town friends to a local mexican restaurant.
I mysteriously got a $10 voucher for restaurant.com, so I used it!

@craigster38:
I second restaurant.com!!
Great deals on local restaurants in my area.
Just be careful when buying and using them. They have limitations.
(ex: One per table, Min food order $, no alcohol...etc.)
They also have an iphone app so you don't have carry a paper coupon with you.
You can even buy the deal on the door step of the restaurant on your phone before you go in.

I often go out to dinner with a coupon but rarely remember to use it. I'd be better off completely ignoring coupons altogether since they cause me to spend money I normally wouldn't.

We have a Ruby Tuesday's about 5 minutes from home, and they've been putting coupons in our local paper, so last week went there for dinner, it was buy one, get one 50% off. The week before that it was BOGO (up to $10 off). The way I see it I can have that $7 frozen drink and it's almost like it's free!
Yay coupons!!

I just went and got the bogo on breakfast sandwiches at Einsten Bagel. Love those! Groupon for Uncle Vinny's Pie co last Friday and a tasty pizza this Friday from Papa Johns for free :)

careful with restaurant.com ... I got a few terrible deals from there when trying to use them for a vacation location. The places they recommended were total crap, and two did not take my certificates, and one was a crappy dive hotel lobby joke.

I think restaurant.com makes sense if you already know the place and can gauge if you're getting a deal. Don't use it for places you are not familar with.

I use a coupon every time I go out to eat.
Even if it might be a free desert or app.

BOGO Chipotle!
I buy an Entertainment book every year too but I am very disappointed with the 2013 one. Actually, I'm just disappointed that my neighborhood has no restaurants anymore so everything in the book is 20-30 minutes away. Yay for the $@#% economy.

Denny's has this 10-15% (I forgot which number it was) off the bill deal every now and then but I always forget.

I know it might not seem much, but think of it as going tax free (in California that is) or getting a free drink (our bill is usually around the $40's).

I'm not sure if this is coupon related (you didn't need a coupon) but I love those two for $20 deals which comes with appetizers, desert and two entrees.

I use Shoprunner for free domino's delivery and their app for coupons. Texas Roadhouse have cheaper dinner if you are there by 6 and frequently email coupons for apps., and Chili's and Applebee's have the 2 for $20. We only eat out once a week, but we save money while we do.

I'm on Bob Evans' mailing list and frequently get a coupon BOGO free breakfast. Used one yesterday morning. Also on Perkins list and often get 20% off the total bill. First Watch sent me a coupon for a totally free entree. Panera says I have a sweet waiting for me. I love restaurant coupons.

We pre-ordered WingStop for the game on Sunday. However, since I don't like wings per se (I get the strips), we weren't able to use their big advertised coupon from the email I got. Sadly, that means we also weren't entered in their contest. :P
