Discount and Free Food Offers for This Summer
Summer is almost halfway over and as much as I love cooking, I am a bit burned out on it. I love barbecuing and grilling, but it feels like a newfound experience every June 21. By late July or August, it begins to feel like a chore. Barbecuing and grilling outdoors is always fun, but it is the cleanup afterwards that I am not so fond of.
It can get very hot cooking indoors during the summer too. So, its often more convenient to order a pizza or eat out. Although, not financially convenient. Americans spent well over $3,000 eating out in 2015. That is a lot of money to waste when you have a family and bills. So, I have compiled a list of restaurants offering free and discounted food this summer.
Bertucci’s Brick Oven & Pasta
Bertucci’s Brick Oven & Pasta is featuring a buy-one-get-one free offer at its restaurants this summer. Buy a large pizza in any flavor and you will get a large cheese pizza absolutely free. Keep in mind that this offer is only for dining in and for carry out orders, and not for delivery.
Buffalo Wild Wings
Buffalo Wild Wings has a customer loyalty program app called, “Blazin’ Rewards”. When you register with Blazin’ Rewards you accrue reward points for every Buffalo Wild Wings purchase. Then, you can then redeem points for free food via the Rewards Roster Menu. All you have to do is download the app online or in-store on a Buffalo Wild Wings tablet device. You’ll get 50 points just for joining up.
During the registration process, you’ll be prompted to enter your email address, basic personal information, and your Buffalo Wild Wings food preferences. After registering, you will get 100 Blazin’ Reward points for every $10 you spend. You can get 10 points just for a check in at Buffalo Wild Wings via the app or for just checking in with friends.
After you get enough Blazin’ Reward points, you can claim a free food item in-store on the Rewards Roster. To redeem, you will have to give your cashier or server your phone number for verification purposes. Your redeemed food items will then be deducted from your bill automatically. Don’t forget about the free wings with a purchase of wings every Tuesday. The restaurant also has Happy Hours featuring $2 and $5 drinks.
When you register online at Quiznos for the company’s Toasty Points loyalty program, you can download an app that will occasionally send you offers for free and discounted food. After registering, you will receive a digital coupon for one free 4-inch sub sandwich with any menu purchase.
