Forget $10: You can get a $25 coupon for just $2! Restaurant.com

Remember the Restaurant.com deal from a couple weeks ago? Well, it's back! From now until Halloween (aka October 31), you can get a $25 gift certificate for a restaurant in your area for just $2. Just enter coupon code TREATS when you get to the shopping cart.

There are a few conditions, of course, usually in the form of a minimum food or drink purchase. However, it's not as if you have to order a case of wine or anything. And you can print the coupon right on your own printer: It's immediately ready for use.

Last time out, the restaurant I wanted was "out of stock," but this morning I was able to nab a $25 coupon for just two bucks. In these heinous economic times, that's too good to pass up.

As one reader pointed out previously, do make sure to read all the terms and conditions before you buy, just so you avoid any nasty surprises when the check comes. Bon appetit!
