Photo (cc) by coloredgrey

Whether it’s a date night, a family night, or a treat for Mom on Mother’s Day, there’s no reason to pay full price for your next restaurant meal.

Amazon is currently offering discounts on gift cards that are good at several national restaurant chains.

Here’s a breakdown of the options:

Ruby Tuesday gift cards

  • What you get: Two $25 Ruby Tuesday gift cards ($50 total value). Both cards come with free shipping.
  • What you pay: $40
  • What you save: $10 and shipping costs
  • How to save: Purchase two $25 Ruby Tuesday gift cards and enter promo code RUBY10 at checkout. When you reach the checkout page titled “Select a payment method,” look for where it says “Gift Cards and Promotional Codes” — that’s where you enter the code.

Bundle with Brinker International and Amazon gift cards

Note: This deal has expired.

  • What you get: A $50 Brinker International gift card, which is valid at Chili’s Grill & Bar, Romano’s Macaroni Grill, On The Border, and Maggiano’s Little Italy. In addition, you get a $10 Amazon gift card (which comes in a blank greeting card). Both cards come with free shipping.
  • What you pay: $50
  • What you save: $10 and shipping costs
  • How to save: Simply purchase the bundle.

Another way to save big

If the restaurants listed above are not your preferred choices, check reputable marketplaces for discounted gift cards such as Raise and Cardpool.

For example, as of Tuesday morning, Raise was offering gift cards to hundreds of restaurants for as much as 50 percent off their face value. See for yourself by visiting Raise and entering the names of some of your favorite restaurant chains in the search bar at the top left.

If you don’t find something there, check Cardpool. It doesn’t currently offer discounted gift cards for as many restaurants as Raise.com, but a number of national chains are represented.
