Everybody loves freebies and everyone loves to eat out so what better list to create than a list on how to get free restaurant food. I have written this list is in no particular order:
*Panera Bread - One of the best things that I love about Panera Bread is that their food is healthy and they always have great customer service. When you sign up for their Panera Club, they will give you a card and keychain (similar to most grocery stores) and advise you to go online and register your account. After you have registered your account online (the process takes less than 2 minutes) they will automatically load your card with a free pastry. The next time you visit Panera you can use the free pastry coupon by showing the cashier your Panera card/keychain.
*Ruby Tuesday - As a person who doesn’t eat most kinds of meat (pork, beef, chicken) it is often hard to find restaurants that offer numerous turkey and/or seafood options. Ruby Tuesday’s is one that does. Their turkey-minis, salmon cakes and crab cakes are to die for! Ruby Tuesday offers a free burger of your choice for your birthday. (My birthday is February 10 and I’ve already gotten my coupon by email). All you have to do is sign up for the So Connected club on their website and you will receive a coupon for a free burger when your birthday comes around. In addition, you will also get numerous coupons and discounts throughout the year from them.
*TGIFridays - TGIFridays has a great environment for date night, girls/guys night out, or family day. They have a very diverse menu and their Jack Daniels sauce is unmatched. If you join the Give Me More Stripes club, they will automatically give you a coupon for a free appetizer or dessert. They will also give you a one-time “Jump in the line pass” as a thank you for signing up. TGIFridays will also send you more money saving coupons throughout the year and you can earn rewards every time you eat there.
*O’Charleys - O’Charleys offers a lot of menu choices, as well as they have a great drink menu. You also get free bread on each visit while you are waiting for your food to arrive. When you sign up for O’Charleys eclub, they will send you a coupon for a free appetizer with any entree purchase. Also they will send you an email for a free dessert on your birthday. The eclub sends out additional offers throughout the year for savings and more freebies.
I will continue to add more restaurants as I learn about new offers!
