It’s the first Friday of the month and that means it is time for a giveaway! There are also some fun freebies including an awesome energy kit from Duke Energy with tons of freebies in it and a sweet Krispy Kreme freebie with purchase!
This month we are giving away 2 certificates to Restaurant.com for $50 each! You can use the certificates to buy gift certificates to area restaurants.
Keep in mind that the restaurant gift certificates all have stipulations as to how and when they can be used so read the fine print when before you order them. For instance, some restaurants only allow you to use your certificates during the weekday and not on Friday or Saturday evenings. Some of the $25 certificates indicate that you have to have a minimum order of $35 or more to use the certificate.
Everyday, the $25 gift certificates are $12.50 but there are always good coupon codes available to take even more off that total. If you win one of these certificates, I recommend you go to retailmenot.com before you order the specific restaurant gift certificates to see what coupon codes are available for restaurant.com at that time. I have bought $25 certificates for as little as $2 before using coupon codes! You can get a lot of gift certificates with this giveaway if they are only $2 each!
To enter, comment below about frugal Valentine’s gifts, activities or meals you are planning for this year. If you haven’t even thought about your Valentine’s plans for this year, post a comment about a frugal Valentine’s idea from a previous year. We are doing a Valentine’s segment on WRAL-TV next week and you may hear your idea mentioned!
I’ll randomly pick the winner on Tuesday, February 7th at 1:00 pm and post the name soon after 1:00. Good luck!

Buy a dozen doughnuts and they will give you a sheet of a dozen Valentine's Day cards that also include a coupon on them for a free doughnut! The coupons are good through March 15th so your Valentine’s (or you!) have plenty of time to use them. I confirmed with the Raleigh and Wake Forest locations that they are participating.
