Great Valentine’s deal going on right now at Restaurant.com – you can get 80 percent off their $25 dining certificates, making them just $2! Plus, when you order, you’ll get a $15 reward from FTD, the floral company. Click here to redeem this offer. Enter the promo code HEART to get this special price. Offer is good through Feb. 14.
According to the fine print on the website, to redeem your $15 offer, you’ll need to click on the FTD logo on the confirmation page that appears after you buy your restaurant gift certificates, or click on the logo in the email – it’s not valid directly at FTD.com.
I’ve noticed that a lot of restaurants on the western side of the Metroplex have begun participating in the Restaurant.com program – including Edelweiss in Fort Worth, My Martini Wine & Bistro in Arlington, and Simply Fondue in both FW and Arlington.
Dinner and flowers – a perfect Valentine’s combo!
FYI—I’ve linked you via my affiliate’s link. If you plan to take advantage of the deal & feel like sending a little love my way, please use the link. Thanks!
