Last week’s poll asked if you were tired of the snow yet poll and the majority of you said you were. While there were those who hadn’t, perhaps the proper question following this week’s cold snap would be “are you tired of the cold yet?” I’m tired of all of it. Less than 6 months till the beach!
This week’s poll comes courtesy of a discussion occurring on the Andiamo thread begun by reader “JaLurker”. JaLurker noted that they don’t eat out unless they have a coupon for a restaurant. Other people have noted either they don’t go to restaurants that have coupons because that means they aren’t of good quality or they use them because they are available but don’t necessarily base their dining decisions on them.
Our family, now numbering three and one who shouldn’t be eating as much as he ends up eating but does, has been looking for any way to save money on eating out that we can. We spent an entire week using coupons to eat out for our birthdays (I’ll have a post up later this week about that experience) and if we have them we’ll use them however due to the nature of this website we generally don’t use them for new restaurants we’re going to review. So obviously I’m not against it and I certainly welcome to the use of coupons but they don’t make or break our dining out experiences.
So what about you? Do you use coupons when you dine out? If so do you require coupons to do so or do you just use them when you can to save money? Do you agree with the assertion that restaurants offering coupons generally aren’t of good quality? Whatever you have to say about using restaurant coupons go ahead and vote on the sidebar and then comment on below. After you do both of those things feel free to check out our expired polls in the archive or read through the previous posts about polls here.
