Stretching Your Dollars... tasty deals

By Maureen O'Boyle - bio l email 

CHARLOTTE, NC  (WBTV) - Nothing tastes better these days that saving money, but the down economy is taking its toll on the restaurant industry. 

Analysts think sales could be down by 10 percent by the end of summer. 

There is a way to support local restaurants without breaking the bank.  WBTV is On Your Side helping you Stretch Your Dollar with the web site, Restaurant.com

Through the site, you can search for your favorite restaurants and ones you want to try and purchase discounted dinners. 

The site even provides the menus for most of the restaurants.

You can find even deeper savings if you start at the website Couponmom.com

The founder, Stephanie Nelson, offers deeper discounts on some of the Restaurants.com deals. 

Nelson who knows how to find a deal thinks this technique might be just the right stimulus package to keep some of our favorite neighborhood restaurants open and thriving!

If you have an idea for our Stretching Your Dollar segment, send me an email.
