You know how it was Christmas, like, yesterday?

Well, Valentine’s Day is in two weeks. I know, I’m reeling too.

But since it’s already here, you’ve got to make some plans. And it’d be pretty lovely (get it?) to not spend a fortune in the process.

Dinner and a Movie, Anyone?

If you act quickly, we found a deal to help you do just that.

For the next six days, Restaurant.com is offering a $100 eGift card and two full-price movie tickets for just $30.

The deal covers tickets to any movie at any participating theater with a value of up to $12 each.

Participating theaters include popular options like AMC, Regency, Muvico and lots more.

The $100 eGift card can be redeemed for services at Restaurant.com redemptions. While it may require a minimum spend at the restaurant, you’ll still save up to 50% on your final dinner bill.

While we don’t see many national chains on Restaurant.com, the deal could be a great way to check out one of your town’s smaller, “mom and pop” boutique restaurants. Your local best-kept secret might even be taking part in the promotion.

And with such good deals, $100 could be quite a few dinners — or one really nice, romantic one.

Think about it this way: without a deal, you’re looking at paying $124 for the meal and the movie tickets. Just using Restaurant.com, you can get a $100 gift certificate for $40.

But, with this special promotion, you get the $100 gift certificate PLUS two movie tickets for 10 whole bucks less, for a total of just $30.

And after all, what’s a more classic V-day date than dinner and a movie?

Your Turn: Will you take advantage of this Restaurant.com movie deal?
