Restaurant.comis running a promotion that allows members to buy restaurant gift certificates for a fraction of the face value.

Many metro Atlanta restaurants listed on the site have $15 gift certificates available for $3.00, $25 gift certificates for $5 or both. The promotion code to apply at checkout is PICK.

Restaurant.compromotions run for a limited period of time and popular certificates often sell out quickly. Most restaurants require a minimum total that is more than the price of the gift certificate; for example atBangkok Thyme in Sandy Springs, a total purchase of $45 is required in order to redeem a $25 gift certificate. Customers are expected to tip based on the original bill.

Maggiano's Little Italy has a three way special running through October. Patrons who order any Classic Pasta dish will receive a second pasta dish to take home, plus Maggiano's will make a donation to the non-profit Feeding America to help the hungry. The promotion is called Buy One, Give One Take one and they plan to donate a million meals this month.
