Restaurant coupon deals in Canberra?

sbugden 4 February 2011 5

When are the restaurants in Canberra going to utilise websites like scoopon/cudo/spreets?

Gelatisimo is the only place that I have seen an offer for discounted food (great bargain btw $6.00 for $14.00 worth of gelato) I have been lucky enough to get some great bargains for eateries in both Melb and Syd.

Is it still a quiet time for restaurants this time of year? What better way to get people in and get your name out there. I can think of many suitable places that could benefit from these coupons.

Any other Rioters agree?

It is funny because my boss runs an ad with a discount coupon and yet soooo many people come in and say they seen it but forgot to bring it. (not a restaurant mind you but cafe/coffee shop)
Last time one person used their coupon out of hundreds that said they forgot to bring it.

I like the coupon/discount idea. I think alot of places actually do it through charity organisations though.
I forget the phone number etc but while at Woden Hospital a while ago (childrens ward) they had a charity organisation offering ‘packs’ on tickets to the movies (Hoyts I think)
Bought my eldest son and his girlfriend tickets for once a week for a year for about $90.

All these coupon style restaurants are a bad idea. Alot of the time, its a dying company that tried to get a few more customers in the door without addressing the issues in the first place. This is a list i compiled of all the voucher complaints ( ).

There are a few in the Entertainment Booklet you can buy.

But otherwise, I think a lot of small business haven’t caught up with what online marketing and things like search engine optimization can do. A lot of people still rely on the YP.

As a gen y person, there is certainly sometimes a lack of this when trying to google for where something is, or it’s opening hours for example.

Yeah I agree with the poster.

Canberra restaurateurs are a very conservative bunch with a lot of them struggling to offer a service the punter wants like opening on a Sunday for instance when the customer has plenty of time to eat and drink.

I am sure the high end will eventually become competitive and start offering deals but don’t hold
your breath.

A great way to get your name out there, providing you’ve actually heard of scoupon/cudo/spreets.

I dunno – call me cynical, but I don’t value these “electronic shop-a-dockets” much myself. A business owner might aswell put their prices up by 20% and post a “15% off this week only!” sign out the front.
