I don’t tend to eat out a lot, partly because it’s less expensive to cook at home and partly because it’s so much easier on our gluten free lifestyle to make everything myself. However, there are so many deals going right now that I’m ready to take a week off from cooking!
Here are a few printable coupons & offers for your dining pleasure:
Burger King: Signup for their Royal Customer loyalty program to receive special offers by email, including a Buy 1, Get 1 free Whopper coupon. These are only good at Heartland Food Corp-owned locations, and not franchises. The same locations are also offering $.69 hamburgers & $.79 cheeseburgers on Tuesdays with no coupon required! The Burger Kings near me are all franchised, so I can’t pay them on Tuesday for a hamburger today. Or, something like that.
Chili’s: Free chips & queso when you join their email club and print the coupon. You can also register the last 4 digits of the credit card you use when dining to receive a 2nd coupon for a free appetizer, plus tailored offers based on your habits. (This is optional but sounds a lot like grocery store loyalty card tracking—could make for some great deals down the road!)
Daily Deal Sites: There are just so many of them anymore—it’s getting hard to keep up—but, the values are so incredible that it’s totally worth it! They feature more than just restaurants, but I do find a lot of dining deals each week. Things like a $25 gift certificate for just $10! It doesn’t take much time for me to quickly delete emails when it’s not something I will use, but I have found so many treasures. Try Groupon, Savvy Source, EverSave & Adility for deals in your area.
Entertainment Book: The 2011 coupon booklet is out and always has great deals for local dining, entertainment & shopping. Many of the coupons in this book are buy 1, get 1 free deals—it can pay for itself with just a few coupons!
