Learn more about Swagbucks & sign up to start earning those gift cards. This is how I pay for many birthday gifts using Amazon gift cards earned from Swagbucks.
  • The Melting Pot - Free Chocolate Fondue  for Two when you join the Club Fondue
*Landry’s Select Club – This club is a little different as it is a discount club for a number of different participating restaurants (including NW restaurants such as Claim Jumper, Rainforest Cafe, and McCormick & Schmick’s) as well as restaurants around the country. You do have to pay $25 to join this select club. However, you will receive a $25 welcome reward automatically added to your account as soon as you join (so make sure to join right before you’ll be heading to a restaurant so you can use it right away & make back your money). You’ll then receive a $25 birthday reward. You’ll also get priority seating which can be important at several restaurants like Claim Jumper where it gets to be a long wait or if you want special seating for Rainforest Cafe. You’ll also earn 1 reward point for every $1 you spend as well as other benefits. We signed up for this several years ago through the Rainforest Cafe & have definitely gotten our money back & more, with the birthday $25 reward every year!
