These five Rockford restaurants will actually give you money back for eating their food.

For real though, Yelp! has introduced something called "Yelp! Cash Back" giving up to 10% cash back to 1000's of participating restaurants.

Sign up is easy too. Absolutely free, and all you need to do is link a credit or debit card to the Yelp! website and you're done.

The "Yelp! Cash Back" rewards are relatively new so keep in mind that out of the 1000's participating there are only five restaurants in the Rockford area that are part of the program.

1. Hai Quynh Restaurant at 324 7th Street

2. Pita Pit at 275 Deane Drive

3. Gene's Place at 4412 Manchester Drive

4. Command Post at 1004 Samuelson Road

5. Quique's Taqueria at 8080 Forest Hills Road

The good thing, the five restaurants are all very different from each other, so you could do a "Rockford Food Tour" and hit up all these places and get some money back for doing so.

If there was ever a time to describe a situation as a "win-win" this would be one of those times.
