Here’s word on some restaurant gift card and gift certificates freebies and bonuses for spring.  Give a little, get a little… Use the freebie or savings to treat yourself, or to give as an extra gift for Mother’s Day or a graduation gift.  If you’re a regular customer of any of these businesses, it might be worth buying the cards to use yourself on future visits, with a free perk attached!

Chipotle Free Food when you buy $30 or more in what they call “graduate gift cards” and save your receipt. Next time you visit you get a free burrito, bowl, order of tacos, or a salad, in an offer running through June 30, 2012.  

IHOP Free $5 Coupon when you buy a $25 Gift Card, according to a press release from IHOP. It’s timed to give gifts for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and graduations, so when you buy a $25 gift card you get a “bounceback coupon” to use on your next visit to the restaurant. You can buy the gift card through June 18, 2012, and then the $5 bounceback coupons are valid until July 31, 2012.

Outback Steakhouse $10 Bonus Card when you buy a $50 gift card by June 17, 2012. You get a bonus card for each $50 gift card purchased, and the bonus card is valid for use between May 14 and July 15, 2012.

StreetFood Asia BOGO Free Gift Card. Buy a $25 gift card by May 12 and get another $25 gift card free, to use from May 13 onwards. It’s a Mother’s Day promotion at the Nob Hill restaurant, 3422 Central Avenue, SE.

We mentioned The Artichoke Cafe half price gift certificate promotion just yesterday, but here’s a reminder.  Buy a $100 gift certificate for $50 until Friday May 11, and then use it until August 31, 2012. 

30% off already discounted dining certificates when you enter the promo code MOM at checkout, until May 10. With the bonus 30% off, a $25 value certificate that is usually discounted to $10 now costs $7. Other denominations are available, check individual restaurants for deal terms (eg minimum spend). Search by zip code, and the extra 30% discount doesn’t show till you’ve entered the code MOM.
