OK, OK – they aren’t really FREE.
But a good part of them is FREE. Here’s the deal – Restaurant.com sells gift certificates for disounted amounts. Generally, they sell $25 gift certificates for $10. As you can see from the image above, they currently have a promotion code (PLATE) that will give you 80% OFF of the $10 sale price, making the total $2. This current code is valid 7/23 through 7/31. They nearly always have some sort of discount code offering 50-80% OFF.
So you end up getting a $25 Gift Certificate for JUST $2! In other words they are basically giving you a FREE Gift Certificate for $23 when you give them $2! That’s a 1250% return on your investment. How can you go wrong?
I am fortunate that there are several resturants nearby that routinely participate in Restaurant.com.
Be sure to read the fine print as many of the restaurants have very specific requirements (e.g. $35 food purchase required, not valid on weekends, or with other discounts, 18% gratuity added before discount, not valid with alcohol, etc.).
Locate a restaurant close to you at Restaurant.com and see if they participate in this FREE restaurant gift certificate program.
Save 80% Off Restaurant.com $25 Gift Cert. Use code PLATE and pay $2 through 7/31/10.

Office Depot has this incredible FREE program called Worklife Rewards! There’s also a similar FREE program for teachers called Star Teacher that allows teachers to earn FREE school supplies.
It’s a pretty simple program. Registration is FREE. You earn a percentage of each sale every time that you shop in store or online as long as you present or enter your Worklife Rewards number. (You can also enter missed receipts online or by calling their customer service number.) You will earn up to 20% of the purchase price back in FREE rewards in the form of a FREE gift card to redeem at Office Depot stores or on the Office Depot web site. The will occasionally offer 100% back in rewards on some items as well.
You also earn FREE rewards for returning empty printer cartridges to Office Depot, any brand. I actually collect them from family and friends to maximize my rewards. You are only able to return 20 cartiridges per month.
To further maximize my FREE rewards, I purchase office related items for work (copy paper, pens, etc.).
In addition, I generally place orders online and have them delivered for FREE (as long as it’s over $50). I do this so that I can earn points through MyPoints to earn FREE gift certifcates. (Join MyPoints) I get even better discounts by using promotion codes that I locate at ScoreADeal.
PLUS sometimes you can find discounted Office Depot gift certificates at Plastic Jungle.
Office Depot also has hundreds of FREE Business Forms that can be downloaded and printed.
Check out these places to get FREE business cards! Think outside the box – mini resume cards, thank you cards, name place cards, save the date cards, I Love You Cards, the sky’s the limit!
Why pay for expensive cards when you can get FREE business cards from reputable printers without leaving your home!
