Eating Out for Less

Have you ever visited your favorite restaurant's website? If not, maybe you'd be surprise to know that by simply adding your email address to their subscription list, you can receive periodic coupons to use on your next visit as well as alerts on new menu items and such. My favorite restaurant happens to be Friendlys and thanks to their coupons we have become regulars, so much so, our servers sometimes ask if we are having our usual :) In addition to coupons via email, oftentimes a coupon offer is printed on your receipt (don't forget to check the back!) and all you have to do is complete a customer satisfaction survey to receive a redemption code, often for absolutely free menu items with no other purchase requirements - which is the case with places like Arby's, Chick-Fil-A, etc.

In addition to coupons, some places like Friday's and Panera Bread have a rewards system which tracks your purchases and gives you back rewards for accumulating points, etc.

You also want to keep an eye out for coupon mailers like the one below which I received today and nearly tossed out! There are even some free coupons included to try out their new menu items.
