Snag dining deals with Restaurant.com for Android

Here's a great way to save money and find new places to eat in your area.

Tired of eating the same things over and over? Or maybe you're just looking to grab a deal at your favorite spot to eat? Time to check out Restaurant.com's Android app.

With this app you'll find options for gift certificates at restaurants that are local to you, and at a much better price. For instance, when I went looking for sushi, I found a local place that had options to spend $4 for a $10 gift certificate, or $15 for $25. Those are amazing deals if you're on a budget and don't want to sacrifice some your food choices.

Start by downloading a copy of the Restaurant.com app. After opening the app, you can either search with GPS (Deals Near Me), ZIP code, or city name. When the results list loads, you can sort the results by distance or name of the business. These options are handy because if you're not familiar with an area or you're just looking for something new, sorting by distance can help you find a place to grab a bite.

The filter option in the app will allow you adjust distance (from 0.25 mile to 15 miles), the default way results are displayed, types of cuisines that will appear in results, and check out places that were recently added. Basically, the app will make sure you're only looking at things that will be relevant to your interests.

After signing up for a free account with Restaurant.com you can purchase gift certificates on your device -- there's no hunting down the place to get the deal right now. After that, no need to even print them out; they can be accessed on the device to show your server.
