Sure, you may have known about and Groupon, but there are a whole slew of ways you can save on dining out before you even leave your home. Here are few of the sites you should check before you head out:

  1. Smart Circle Cards: this site is a kind of take on the classic Entertainment Book. However, instead of buying a whole book of coupons you probably won’t use, you buy a discount card for just one restaurant.
  2. OpenTable: these days, you can do more than make a reservation on OpenTable. Head to this site to take advantage of OpenTable Spotlight, which features dining discount offers in 12 major US cities.
  3. Dine Out Cheap: this is a free website and iPhone app that features deals from restaurants in 70 major cities. Just sign up for their free newsletter and get deals delivered directly to your inbox.
