Even a birthday meal warrants a coupon deal

It was Steve's birthday a few days ago and we decided it would be nice to go out for a meal with friends.  At the moment we are in Australia near Noosa on the Sunshine Coast.  Noosa is a tourist area famous for its gourmet retaurants so finding something not too expensive was going to be a challenge.

Many areas have free local newspapers and although much of the news is meaningless you will often find food coupons.  We had numerous choices and settled on Villa Noosa.  The option was "buy any meal at full price and get a second (the cheaper) meal for $5" and for our more mature friends there was a "buy 1 get 1 free seniors meals".  On the same coupon strip you could have a free garlic bread with a meal or a free dessert with a meal and the small print at the bottom said not to be used in conjuction with any other offer.

Scanning the menu we saw a seafood platter for 2 on at $38 and pushing our luck we asked whether the $5 coupon could be applied to a second seafood platter for 2.  Sure enough they were happy to do that so for $43 we got seafood platters for 4.

It gets better - we also went up with the free garlic bread coupon and got that as well!

So the moral here is check out coupons and don't be afraid to push your luck and try more than one coupon at once.
