How to Dine out on a Discount
Saving while eating out on a trip is easier than ever thanks to the proliferation of deals websites. Yipit uses a metasearch engine to comb hundreds of sites at once, showing users all the restaurant offers in their chosen destination.
Big players such as Yelp and Travelzoo are also in on the act, offering restaurant and entertainment discounts in select cities. (Tip: Sign up for their deal alerts for your destination several weeks before your trip so you can incorporate offers into your travel plans.)
Finally, using such sites as OpenTable can be beneficial. Accrue enough points while restaurant-hopping at home, and use them for a free meal at the OpenTable restaurant of your choice on your trip.
