Feed It Forward with Restaurant.com

By
Real Estate Agent with Brand Name Real Estate

This program was a big hit last year, so I'm glad to see it back again.

Restaurant.com has officially started its Feed It Forward initiative.  One of the major changes I see for Feed It Forwardthis year's program is that you can give up to 30 gift certificates a day, where last year you could only give 3!

Here are the details right form the website:

"The gift of giving lifts spirits, spreads joy, and strengthens communities. Feed It ForwardTM provides you the opportunity to help give away up to $30 million in free restaurant gift certificates-over 30 days-and allows you to treat friends, family, and colleagues-anyone deserving-to savings on a great meal out. Best of all, it's FREE to Give and FREE to Receive.

Through Feed It ForwardTM, you have the opportunity to give from the heart and enrich the lives of people around you through the gift of meals and memories. Give a free $10 Restaurant.com Gift Certificate to 30 different people, everyday until Christmas. Simply choose whom to give to and we take care of the rest."

I think this would be an excellent way to reach out to all of our past and present clients.  Even if they just get a lunch or discounted dinner out, I'll bet they'll be thinking about you sometime during that meal!

Wow, I used to give these out...I loved them myself.  Seems like a wonderful time to do that again.  Thank you for the information, I don't know why I haven't thought of these and they do make wonderful gifts.

I just went to NYC for the holiday weekend and I bought a dozen $25.00 coupons for only $2.00 each. But this program for for past clients seems like a great idea. Restaurant.com rocks!

Craig: I think this is a great site, too.  You just can't beat the price for the value.  I actually scored some $25 certificates for $1 a few months ago.  And as good of a deal as that was, it doesn't compare to free :)

I thought about doing it, but the thing I hate is that you have to spend a certain amount.  I bought some thinking they were great, but to spend $50 to use a $25 gift certificate is still pretty expensive.  Some are where you have to spend $35 for the $25.

It just bothers me that you can't buy the certificates for the specified amount and then leave without paying anything, except tip.

Donna: I do agree with you on that point.  The ones I've always gotten have been that you had to spend $35 to get the $25 off, but you're still getting a good value.  Usually you pay a couple dollars for a $25 gift certificate, so if you have to spend another $10 to be able to use it, then you're still eating out for half off.  With these they're only $10, so I'm not sure what the minimum purchase would be.  But you have nothing at all invested in them.  It's still $10 off your bill :)

Hi Jim:

I hadn't heard of this before...

You're right, it's a good idea for reaching out to past customers.
