Subtotal supports Apple Pay so checkout is a breeze.
Q: Where do the savings come from?
A: Subtotal saves you money at restaurants by providing a discounted gift code for your exact bill total. With discounted gift cards, you usually have to deal with holding on to the card until you go to the restaurant, and you often end up with either too much money on the gift card or not enough to cover your meal. Subtotal sells you a gift card in real-time for the exact amount of your bill.
Q: Is Subtotal safe?
A: Subtotal is an extremely safe way to pay. Your credit card information is secured before processing using industry-standard 256-bit SSL encryption. You can also checkout without providing your credit card number using Apple Pay. This uses the Secure Element chip along with your thumbprint or password to store your payment information safely. See Subtotal Policies for more details on how Subtotal protects your privacy.
Q: Where do discounted gift cards come from?
A: Subtotal works with hundreds of restaurants as an approved partner. We guarantee that your purchase will go smoothly through the Subtotal secure checkout flow. All sales are fully warrantied. Beware of gift cards sold through online marketplaces which are often mislabelled or stolen.
Q: Okay, so I pay the restaurant with a gift card. But how do I pay Subtotal?
A: Subtotal accepts Apple Pay and all major credit cards. The Subtotal checkout is fast, convenient, and secure.
Q: Can I combine Subtotal with other coupons or promotions?
A: Absolutely! Subtotal is a payment option, not a restaurant coupon or restaurant promo code. We recommend combining promotions with Subtotal to save the most money.
Q: Can I use this when ordering takeout/delivery?
A: Yes! Subtotal can be used when eating at a restaurant, ordering takout, or getting delivery. If you're ordering through an app, just type in the gift card number from Subtotal into the restaurant's app when checking out.
