Food Freebies & Deals: April 27 – May 4, 2012
Albuquerque restaurant deals this week prove that spring winds may be blowing, but you don’t have to blow your dollars when eating out! Was that the single most dreadful pun/ tortured intro I’ve ever written? I suppose one always has to strive to surpass oneself. One will now get on with the food deals…
Village Inn $2 Off Any Skillet Meal today Friday April 27, using the coupon. This is the last day of Village Inn special offers this week – and if you missed hearing about it in our earlier post, subscribe to ABQ on the Cheap and then you won’t miss deals in future!
All-You-Can-Eat Horno Baked Pizzas for $5 at the Pueblo Harvest Cafe on Friday and Saturday nights. The cafe at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center also features live music on the patio, and the music and pizza nights run through September.
Albuquerque / Santa Fe Entertainment Book on Sale at $15 with free shipping. The $15 limited-time sale price includes hundreds of restaurant coupons among the discounts, 2-for-1 deals, and freebies with purchase for attractions, entertainment, and shopping. Regular price for the coupon book is $40, and the $15 sale is good on any city’s book (search here by zip code) for about 140+ locations nationally, including Las Vegas, Orlando, Hawaii, and other much less glamorous places. Plus get $5 off the Entertainment.com Savings Membership in an introductory $24.99 offer (usually $30), with instant access to mobile redeemable coupons all year round.
It’s the last few days of the Subway BOGO free sub promo, running during April. Buy a 6 inch sandwich on any morning by 9 am to get another Subway sandwich free!
Los Equipales $15 gets you $30 worth at dinner, when you’re in the mood for Mexican! Buy the half off certificate in the limited time Groupon offer, and use it by July 28, 2012. Los Equipales restaurant is located at 4500 Silver Avenue SE.
Brasserie La Provence Cooking Class on May 8. Chef Claus cooks up spring leg of lamb with various fancy side dishes and an appetizer, followed by Crepe Suzette… Oh, be still my beating heart. The menu is paired with fine wines at $40 per person. Make reservations at (505) 254-7644.
Boston Market Free Kids Meal when you buy an adult meal and drink, using the coupon through May 22, 2012. Or use this Boston Market coupon for $1 off any $10 order to May 27, or this coupon for $1 off an individual meal, Boston Carver sandwich, or salad until May 15.
Olive Garden $5 Off two dinner entrees or $2.50 off one entree if you’re dining alone, using the coupon. If you don’t see the offer at the website page I linked you to, here’s a direct link to the Olive Garden printable coupon, valid till May 6.
Or get a free Olive Garden appetizer or dessert when you buy two entrees, until May 27.
KFC Free Family-size Double Chocolate Chip Cake with the purchase of a 10 piece meal or larger, at participating restaurants. The offer is valid for a limited time on meals featuring Original Recipe, Extra Crispy, or Kentucky Grilled Chicken, and no coupon is needed. Reader Barb told us that the free cake is usually priced at $4.99, and the 10 piece family meal at $22.95 including sides and biscuits, so that’s a freebie bonus worth 22% of the original purchase – although pricing may vary by location.
Slate Street Cafe Spanish Wine Tasting on Tuesday May 1 from 5 – 7:30 pm in the wine loft. It’s $18 for 3 “generous pours” of the featured wines plus a light appetizer. That price is per person (so I guess you can’t share), and tax and tip are extra.
Jamon’s Frybread Cabana Pay $25 for $50 worth of dining certificates thanks to Good Day New Mexico’s Half Price Thursday. They are NOT making it clear whether you get one $50 certificate, or if it’s broken down into two $25 certificates. This is kind of important to know as you have to use the full value in one visit, and there’s no cashback for the unspent portion. So maybe only go for this if you KNOW you’ll spent $50 in one visit. (Shipping cost is $3.75, check the deal details for how you may use the certificate).
I haven’t been to Jamon’s Frybread Cabana, but it sounds so good! Has anyone tried this place? Give your restaurant review in the comment box below!
