Waiter gets food from restaurant chefThis may be the last big restaurant discount before Christmas on Restaurant.com. With coupon code JOY, you can get a $25 gift certificate for just $2. (They normally sell for $10.) The sale ends Dec. 12, 2010.

I've saved 25% to 40% off my tab when I've used Restaurant.com gift certificates in the past, which is why I named it one of my top five money saving sites. Restaurant.com works with thousands of restaurants across the country, so you can find neighborhood eateries, upscale dinning rooms and lots more on the site. They make nice gifts, though make sure you point out the redemption rules to the recipient so they aren't misguided.

Each $25 certificate requires a minimum food purchase above and beyond the certificate, like $35 or $50 for a $25 cert. You can only use one certificate per table and alcohol, tax and tip are excluded. Some restaurants even limit the days and times you can redeem the coupons.
