4. Tasting Table

New Yorkers ought to sign up for the daily Tasting Table email list, which offers exclusive weekly specials at local restaurants. From April 5-9, that’s 20% off lunch at Dickson’s Farmstand, an artisanal meat stand in Chelsea Market. (Must mention the deal on arrival and present the print-out coupon.)

5. Tippr.com

At this group discount site, the more people who want in on a deal, the lower the price drops. Through April 6, Seattle residents can get a $50 voucher to Roxy’s Diner for $25. (The fine print: Voucher does not cover alcohol purchases, and you can use one per customer.)
