Back-to-school can be an expensive and exhausting adventure with the cost of school supplies, backpacks, new clothes and extra activities. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, consumers spend $7.2 billion on back-to-school shopping.
Restaurant.com understands families need budget-saving breaks and relief from a nonstop schedule. The company offers ways to save on dining out that can help reduce stress and create more time with family!

“As a mom and former teacher, I know shopping for school supplies at a discount is rewarding but exhausting,” says Jan Leasure of Jan’s Super Saver Survival. “I reward myself by going directly from shopping for school supplies to a local restaurant. I treat myself and my school supply shoppers for a great dinner at a discount by slapping down my Restaurant.com certificate.”
