Every Sunday throughout March, you can get $150 worth of dining credit for $25, as part of Gilt City's "Gilt City Tables" promotion. Gilt City is one of the plethora of discount sites that have sprouted up like mushrooms in the past couple of years, but this deal seems exceptional -- if you can get your hands on it.

The deals go on sale every Sunday at noon. Here's the schedule:

March 13: Scarpetta
March 20: 1500 Degrees at Eden Roc
March 27: Michael's Genuine Food & Drink

PR rep Caitlyn Carpanzano wouldn't disclose how many certificates are offered. I checked around 2 p.m. last weekend, but it was too late. Then again, my cousin says he tried at 12:03 p.m. and it was already too late. You do need to be a member before you claim the deal, but anyone can join.

According to Carpanzano, there are no restrictions on use: "You would just have to coordinate with the restaurant upon purchase."

Gilt City says 100 percent of the proceeds from these deals are going to Share Our Strength's "No Kid Hungry" campaign.

I'm curious to know if any of our readers were able to claim this deal...

Today i actually got it..... So I thought. I was able to put it in my cart. Put in my Info and it said thank you for you purchase and gave me a tracking number. All was good. I also learned only 5 were available, thought I was a lucky one. Them they send me an email that they made a mistake and would refund my money plus give me 25 credit!!!!! WTF- what is going on with this website. This should be investigated if it rally exists.

Same exact experience - I tried this past weekend AND the weekend before, but the deals were "sold out" and I was waitlisted -- New Times, pls help us find out what is going on here...

Same experience here.. was on at 11:58, refreshed and seconds after twelve it was already soldout.. complained with support and when I asked them to disclose the number of packages available I was told that they cannot give out that number as per their agreement with the supplier.. best case scenario we are looking at between 1 and 5 packages available IMO.

Same here, refreshed from 11:58 on, hit buy @ 12:00 on the dot. No dice. SO SHADY. What is the point of this nonsense?

I spoke to a Gilt City rep and they would not reveal the number of deals available. As it is standard practice to explicitly state the number of coupons/deals available on most deal sites, I believe GC is simply mining for emails with bogus deals.

Ridiculous. Same experience. Was on at the stroke of noon. Sold out as soon as I clicked it. I don't think there are any certificates. Probably a BS promotion to increase web traffic on the gilt website

Agreed. Shady marketing. As they say, when it sounds too good to be true.....

I was on giltcity.com at 11:59 and at 12 clicked the link as soon as it appeared and the deal for Scarpetta was already gone. I had to waitlist. They must offer all of one certificate for each place.

No luck here. There must be about ONE of these certificates available. Seriously.Was hitting refresh constantly from 11:58 onwards, and it did finally pop up as available and BAM I was on it......but already it was sold out. 12:03 is waaaay late :-), you need to be the lucky ONE there at 12:00.000001. C'est la vie!

wtf
