    have bought gift certificates
    bought one for TABASKO.........restaurant went out of business b4 we used it :-(
    bought one for Elenora's karzy grill...............ditto

    bought numerous for MJ, BUCCANEER and TULIP..........worked out well.

    I highly recommend the AGA gift certificates if the restaurants on the list are what you want.

    the gift certificates cost $45 each and are actually $50 gift certificates.
    you must purchase a minimum of 2.

    it is an excellent deal IF you were planning on dining at the restaurants in the AGA plan.
    for us it was BUCCANEER and AMADEUS.

    i did not know there was any surcharge associated with the "gift certificates".
    there is a surcharge on some of the restaurants using the AGA dine around coupons.
    (such as amazonia and laguna)
    but a $5 surcharge for using the gift certificates?!

    i went to the site and could not find it, could you direct me to it?

    i do not want to recommend the gift certificates to people if there is a surcharge.
    in my experience it was a $5 savings.
    we used them for Amadeus and Buccaneer

    thanks

    the dine around coupon is in the dine around program.

    the gift certificates are NOT in the dine around coupon program.

    the $50 gift certificate is worth $50 to be applied to your bill.
    the gift certificates are not the coupons.


    if you go to the AGA page and read about the AGA dine around program it will show all.

    2 separate programs
    *the "dine around program" using the coupons/vouchers, which has some surcharges at particular and listed restaurants.

    *the gift certificates which can be used at any of the AGA dine around restaurants. the price is $45 for a $50 gift certificate. minimum purchase is 2 gift certificates.

    ex: Our bill at Amadeus was $60. we used an AGA gift certificate. it was a $50 gift certificate. So when we paid our bill we used the gift certificate and added in $10 and added in another $12 for tip.

    No surcharge using the gift certificates.
    Only surcharge on the Dine Around.
