What's a loyalty point? Is that the same as getting a $25 gift card?

Not the same. Loyalty points expire by Sept 19th 2017.

But otherwise it's the same as $25. So if I bought a $50 gift card and used that and the loyalty points before Sept. 19 it would be counted as $75? Can I use them at the same time? I guess this is a way for them to get around gift cards not expiring?

So, I spend $200.00 on gift cards and I get to spend $300.00at the restaurant?? Doesn't sound that bad. I bought into the initial deal the first year it was offered, but my time machine broke so I can't go back to 2013

Still not the same. Using GC earns you LP, but LP won't generate new LP.
Furthermore, LP is not redeemable for Summerlicous menu.

The annual Ruth's Chris promotion has arrived, not as good as last year which was a special anniversary for them but still worth it if you want to try it.

This year they've decided that the loyalty points don't start until the day after Father's Day (Jun 19) - very smart of them as I took advantage of this last year. Also, last year I had no problems paying a large bill with a combination of giftcards, loyalty points and Costco giftcards ($79.99 for $100) as long as the tax and tip if covered with a regular form of payment.

Good find OP. These sales tend to pass quickly. Ruth's Chris is hoping we have short memories. This (33.33%) is the smallest discount I've ever seen on these gift cards. I'm going to buy a few of these since I'll probably end up there for a few upcoming birthdays. Better 33% off then paying full price!

They had a deal to buy a $50 gift card and get 50 loyalty points back on Black Friday / Cyber Monday. Loyalty point were good from Jan to April of 2017.

The 50th anniversary $50 gift card (2015) came with 100 loyalty points.
