Debunk:

This is a variant of the e-mail gift certificate hoaxes. Currently there is no such way to 'track' e-mail to enable such a scheme to work.

I just visited the Applebees site and found a note about this, link: http://www.applebees.com/popup.html

Please ignore any messages regarding this hoax and do not pass on any messages regarding it. Passing on messages about this hoax serves only to further propagate it.
