Update: Restaurant.com raised its discount from 70 to 80 percent through Wednesday, September 22. Save big at restaurants like 3030 Ocean, Trina, Chef Allen's, D. Rodriguez Cuba, and so much more. Promo code after the cut.
Restaurant.com is a site that lets you purchase $25 to $100 gift certificates to local restaurants at reduced cost. It's a novel idea with just one problem: Most restaurants on the list let you redeem only one gift certificate at a time. So if you're eating at, say, the Melting Pot, a $25 certificate purchased for $17.50 on restaurant.com isn't going to save you more than $7.50.

That means $25 certificates as low as $3. Any way you paint that, it's a pretty good deal.
