$25 Vouchers for $1 via (with a catch)

I know I sound like an ad, but I'm not. I just love a good deal!!

MetaDaddy cringes when I start obsessing about coupons. He stops talking to me if I suggest that he use one. Is this a guy thing? Or a MetaDaddy thing? I don't think I know any guys who like using coupons. Just like I don't know any guys who like carrying coins. I firmly believe that the reason tip jars are everywhere is because guys just kept saying "keep the change." All those Starbucks baristas just knew how to take advantage of a theme.

So I was meandering around the internet, minding my own business, when I noticed that is having a sale that they claim ends tonight. The coupon code NINETY will get you 90% off of your purchase. For example, I purchased a $25 gift certificate for $1 (the catch: minimum purchase of $35), which usually costs $10. So when I use it, I'll end up having paid $11 for a $35 purchase. Once you purchase the "gift certificate," you receive the voucher via email, so you can print and use it right away.

Not every restaurant participates, but I figure it's a nice way test a new place I've been meaning to try out. I've used these vouchers before, and had no problem. I printed one out for a friend to use, and she had no problem. So I'm looking forward to trying some new places!!
