Okay, most of you have heard of it. Most of you have looked at it. How many actually use them? We have been using them for the last six months or so and LOVE them! Eating out while on vacation is one of your biggest expenses {other than your accommodations}. is one of the best things to hit PCB. Dozens of restaurants here participate and that means savings for you. Typically, a certificate will cost around $10....but, if you are like me, wait till there is a sale! Some days they will offer certificates for $3 or $1 {yes, really $1}. That is the time to buy them. At $10, you won't really feel like you saved very much. At $3 or $1, you will feel like a coupon queen!
Scampy's is one of our favorite seafood places here. The prices are great...the food is fresh and the taste is unbelievable. I will do some restaurant reviews later on, so since this is a post about the certificates, I will get back on subject. Here is a sample break down of our bill. We went at we were still eligible for some of the twilight specials {aka early bird}. They typically last until 6 pm, so as long as you order before then, you will snag some deals. Right now they are offering 10 meals under $10 and they are basket version of some of their dinner platters.
2 kids meals @ $6.99 a piece {one fish, fries and hushpuppie & one grilled chicken and baked potato}
           {Drinks were included at that price, you can opt for water and they are $5.99}
1 Fried combo ~ Jumbo shrimp, stuffed crab, fried fish, french fries, cole slaw, and hush puppies $9.99
1 Bowl of Spaghetti w/ salad and dinner roll $6.50
1 Piece of Key Lime Pie {we shared!} $4.99
2 Adult waters
$35.46 {perfect!!! You are required to hit the $35 mark.}
$6.38 gratuity {they add 18% when you use the cert}
subtotal~ $41.84
TAX $1.13
~~~TOTAL $17.84~~~

For a family of 4 with a shared dessert this is excellent at the beach!!!! Actually, that's about $6 cheaper than what Captain D's would cost you! Please check for each certificate you are interested in...the fine print can be different at each restaurant. Scampy's is one of the best I think! They will generally even let you use your certificate at lunch. You can feed about 6 adults for this same price at lunch! You just have to ask when you get there. They have also been very easy about certificates....sometimes they have taken them straight off of my friends phone when she couldn't run back to the house to print. Very nice after a long day at the beach.
