SOUTH BEND – An attempt to save money is costing a lot of people their patience.
We told you Thursday night at 11 that some Restaurant.com customers couldn't redeem coupons printed from the site at local restaurants. While Restaurant.com said the trouble was isolated, local businesses say that's not the case.
Click. Print. Clip. For Christian Estrup, it's a simple way to save.
"Maybe $10 will get you $20 worth of food," said Estrup.
For some restaurant owners, their experience with Restaurant.com's site brought nothing but headaches.
"It was extremely frustrating," said Carol Meehan.
Meehan is the 'Lady of the House' at Fiddler's Hearth in Downtown South Bend. She saw our story Thursday night about Restaurant.com's coupon confusion at Gino's East. The site sold discount coupons to the pizzeria, but management there wouldn't accept them.
"When I heard the Restaurant.com response that it was a rare thing, it seemed to me like it's business as usual," said Meehan.
