8 Brilliant Ways to Save Money on Restaurants Bills

How often have you suffered a great expenditure when out on a shopping and had a dinner at a costly restaurant that ultimately ended up making a big hole in your pocket? It is not that the restaurant was expensive, but a little bit of strategic approach could have proved favorable for your budget and controlling expenses. If you are yet to explore the tricks to save money on restaurants bill, read on.

Conduct Search: Some major restaurants such as Pizza Hut have online ordering facilities. Use the menu card of various restaurants to find the details of the prices of different items. This will give you a fair idea as to which place offers food at reasonable rates. If there are coupon facilities available, then you have the additional benefit of saving more money.

Sign Up for Free Newsletters: If you are too particular on dining at any particular restaurant due to the inclination to the taste, you can sign up for free newsletters at websites where information on restaurants are available. These newsletters contain discount coupons, vouchers, newly launched recipes, prices and much more. This can be beneficial for locating a restaurant that offers food at reasonable prices and also planning your budget.

Use Coupon Codes: This is the most fabulous ways to save money going out to eat without compromising with desired food item ordering. Some sources such as LiveSocial and Groupon are the storehouse on coupon codes for every major restaurant. Print your coupons and you can comfortably order your food at a nearest restaurant of your choice.

Explore Happy Hour Offers: Many restaurants have happy hours during a certain point of time in the day say in the afternoon. The meals and package dishes are available at special discounted prices during this time period.

Subscribe to Restaurant Email Lists: Due to high competition, the majority of restaurant authorities invite the customers to share their emails. Subscribing to the email lists will entitle you to the latest menu additions, offers, happy hours, special seasonal offers, food festival offers and much more that you can cherish.

Pay through Credit Cards: The credit card companies often privilege their customers with up to 5 to 20 percent discount on restaurant bills. Check if your credit card is acceptable at the particular restaurant or not.

Take Desserts and Beverages at a Separate Destination: This is a major trick you often miss. The regular restaurants may not have a great stock of desserts. But the prices are relatively high. Hence, you can move out after the main course dinner or lunch to a nearest ice cream parlor where you can find several flavors and options at a cheaper price. You can alternatively try to visit a small coffee shop for tea or coffee to save your bills.

Be Decisive While Ordering: Some people order excessively and then waste a lot of food and money too. Taking multiple courses is not a good idea as the kids may leave the food due to loss of appetite over a soup or first course options.

The above mentioned strategies are ideal for saving a great deal of money on your restaurant bills. Moving out for a lunch or dinner with your family is always a great idea to keep them happy. Now that there are lot many options available to you, you can always explore ways to use tricks to get the best deals.

  • Comments Off on Southwest Airlines, The Only Airline With a Sound Business Model?

In April I took a vacation to Las Vegas. My airline of choice was Southwest. I was able to get the incredibly low fare of $80 each way through a special promotion called “Get Away Fares.” Other airlines price based on what all the other airlines are doing, but Southwest seems to truly have “sale” fares. If you are flexible in the days and times you leave, Southwest can save you a bundle. For example Southwest Airlines doesn’t charge you for your second bag as some other airlines do, then also throw in free curbside check-in. To find Southwest’s sale offers on the main page click on the “Special Offers” tab on the top of the page. One of the top offers currently is flying nonstop between Denver, CO and select West Coast cities for $79 one-way. Not bad in the era of rising jet fuel prices. “The Dallas-based airline has used derivatives to hedge the cost of more than 70% of its estimated fuel consumption for 2008 and 55% of its estimated costs for 2009 and is paying a price equivalent to $51 per barrel of crude oil (WashingtonPost.com).” In an article titled ‘Why Southwest Soars While Other Airlines Sag’ in the Chicago Sun Times Southwest Airlines chief executive officer Gary Kelly states, “We now board more passengers annually than any other airline in the world.” According to TheStreet.com revenues for Southwest were up 15.10% last quarter. The stock price (LUV) is up 25.85% over the last 3 months.

You don’t have to buy a Toyota Prius or wait until the GM Volt comes out in 2010. You can get 120 miles to the gallon right now with a scooter! “The size of a scooter’s engine can range from 50 cc’s to 650 cc’s. A scooter with a smaller engine of 50 cc’s can get up to 120 miles per gallon with a top speed about 48 miles per hour. A larger scooter with an engine of 650 cc’s can get 50 mpg and reach 115 mph (Herald-Zeitung.com). From 2002 to 2007 scooter sales have doubled. In the first quarter of 2008 scooter sales are up 24% (MercuryNews.com).” The purchase of a scooter seems like a very sensible solution to high gas prices.

Open Source Smack Booster Could Increase Your Gas Mileage by 30%

Lowering the fuel cost burden is on everyone’s mind right now so I will continue to write about proven and lesser known ways, like the Smack Booster to save money on gasoline.

Dustin also known as “Smack” developed a device what he calls the “Smack Booster.” All his research is open sourced and for those who do not or cannot follow the plans is available for purchase. The Smack Booster kits are ready for shipping at $170 each http://www.smacksboosters.110mb.com.

I’m not even going to try to paraphrase what the Smack Booster does. Here’s what I could find, “The smacks booster is often referred to as a Hydroxy booster and consists of a small container of distilled water with a conductive additive. When an electric current is passed through the water it produces a gas mix commonly referred to as hydroxy. This hydroxy mix improves the quality of the burn inside the combustion chamber while reducing CO2 and other harmful emissions coming out of the exhaust. This improvement in burn quality makes your engine run more powerfully and smooth while reducing carbon deposits which have built up inside over its working life. The hydroxy output of the booster replaces a portion of the gasoline normally consumed by your engine. Typical mileage gain results have been averaging around 20% using this design (http://www.panacea-bocaf.org/smacksbooster.htm).”
Download the Smack Booster PDF design here: http://www.free-energy-info.co.uk/

So if it’s so good why hasn’t anyone tested it?

Well the design has been tested; lots of people in fact have tested the design. Take the blog http://rebels-roost.blogspot.com/2008/04/modified-smack-booster-finally.html for example. The author of this blog installed the Smack Booster on his van and was able to get 33% additional miles per gallon. From 32.24 MPG up from the baseline of 24.20 MPG. Unless everyone who’s writing about the Smack Booster design is lying it seems to work and definitely needs to be researched further.
