Panda Express free Shanghai Angus Steak on Tax Day, Tuesday April 17 at participating locations. This is for a single serving of the new Panda Express entree, and no purchase is necessary! But you do need the Panda Express coupon and it’s only valid on April 17.

15% off all P.F Chang’s food purchases on April 17.  Dine in or take out. Not valid on beverages, happy hour food, or P.F. Chang’s for Two, but otherwise just turn up with a taxing appetite.   

Sonic Half Price Drinks and Slushes in an all-day happy hour on Tax Day April 17 so you don’t have to sweat the small stuff…

Chili’s Grill & Bar Free Appetizer or Dessert when you buy an adult entree from April 16 – 18, using a printable Chili’s tax day coupon or showing it on a smart phone at participating restaurants. According to the PR Newswire press release, to get the coupon you’ll have to be Chili’s email club member (or sign up for Chili’s email club), or get it from Facebook or Twitter. (I don’t see it at time of writing, probably too early yet.)

Two Free Cinnabon Bites  on April 17 – two freebies per person between 6 pm and 8 pm – note those are both PM times, it’s an evening offer – at participating locations.

Brasserie La Provence Wine Dinner on April 17 gets you four courses paired with Louis Bernard French wines for $55. The dinner starts at 6:30 pm. Reserve a table in advance.

Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory Deal $10 for half-dozen chocolate-covered strawberries (worth $21) or $10 for four caramel apples or candy apples (worth up to $26). You can buy 2 deals plus one as a gift (that’s a lot of candied fruit, people!) in the offer via Groupon for a limited time, and then use the certificates by July 31 at the Cottonwood Mall store. Candy apples could be a nice present for the teacher!

Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes Seniors Deal on Monday through Thursday from 2 – 5 pm. An email from S&ST tells us that for $6.99, seniors 60+ can get “as much or as little as you like” of salads, soups, pasta, muffins, breads, desserts and free coffee and drinks. No coupon is needed. I’d check with the server that they’re honoring this BEFORE you start to chow down!

Starbucks Petites Deal to get two Petites for $2 until April 22. Although right now I’m pretty annoyed at Starbucks as some head office rep contacted me to offer a giveaway to ABQ on the Cheap readers, and then when I said Yes Please, they decided they didn’t have enough giveaway gift sets after all. Pretty lame behavior and a waste of my time. But it’s still a good Petites deal :-) and it’s not the fault of local locations and the lovely people who work in them!

Ree Drummond Pioneer Woman free talk about her new cookbook The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From My Frontier on Monday April 30 at 6 pm in free Bookworks event at the Simms Center for the Performing Arts Auditorium. You have to get your free tickets in advance, as they have limited space!

Panda Express Free Entree item with the purchase of a two or three entree plate. Last chance to use the coupon by September 10, at participating locations.

Sonic Half Price Drinks daily from 2- 4 pm.  The half price deal is good on Slushes (except CreamSlush Treats), soft drinks like Coke, Sprite, and Dr Pepper, ice teas, and limeades, but isn’t valid with combos and Wacky Pack meals.

80% off Restaurant.com already discounted dining certificates when you enter the promo code SAVE at checkout through September 14.  Restaurant.com certificates are already discounted, so prices with the extra 80% off promo code:

Dinner in the Field Fundraiser for Rio Grande Community Farm (hosts of the Maize Maze) on September 25, 2011 from 5-8 pm. It’s $100 a ticket, but that includes cooking by chefs from Savoy Bar & Grill, Zinc Wine Bar and Bistro, Lucia at Hotel Andaluz, and wine by Casa Rondeña Winery, plus live music by Little Mama and the Burque Boys-Jazz Quartet. Yes, it’s still 100 smackeroonies, but it’s a fundraiser, and the outdoor dinner is partially tax deductible.

Village Inn Coupon to get $5 off when you purchase two adult entrees and two beverages. Or use it for $2.50 off one adult entree and one drink. You can also get $2 off a whole pie with the coupon. Both valid to September 16, 2011.

Denny’s 20% Off Coupon to get 20% off the entire check, excluding alcohol. It’s one coupon per visit, and this is part of a promotion for Denny’s new Let’s Get Cheesy menu, including Cheese Sizzlin’ Skillet and Mac ‘n’ Cheese. I’m not totally sure if it’s only valid on the Let’s Get Cheesy menu – the terms don’t give that restriction, but check with your server before ordering. Use it by September 17, 2011.

Einstein Bros Bagels Free Pumpkin Muffin when you buy any coffee drink, using the coupon to September 14. I’ve given you a direct link to the coupon, but you can also find it on the Einstein Bros Bagels Facebook page. One per person at participating locations.

Einstein Bros. Bagels free Darn Good Coffee with any purchase when you enter their Facebook motto contest through September 11. This requires Liking the Einstein Bros. Bagels FB page, and entering the contest. Everyone entering receives a coupon for a free coffee with purchase, and winners receive free bagels and coffee for a year, and the motto is featured on employee’s uniforms. I’d want more than free bagels in exchange for a corporate motto, but your mileage may vary. Be warned: You have to use a Facebook app to enter, which I’m reluctant to do, but your mileage may vary there too.

Carl’s Jr Coupons to use at participating restaurants, see the coupons for details:

Whole Foods Market Organic Ground Beef Sale $2 off at $4.99 a pound on Friday September 2, only. Usually priced $6.99 a pound, this is 100% grass-fed organic 85% lean ground beef. Just in time for Labor Day BBQ hamburgers!

Buca Di Beppo $10 Off Coupons for Labor Day Weekend. Get $10 off a $20 dine-in purchase, or $10 off a $30 Buca To Go order. Both good to September 5.

PF Chang’s Wine Deal Get a third off a bottle of wine all day on Mondays and Tuesdays in September 2011. That’s a third off any bottle of wine! As the cost of vino is always a large part of the check when I dine out with Mr Cheap (because Darling, I hardly eat a thing) I think I’ll be timing a trip there for the wine offer nights!

Half Off Funtastic Jumps Party Package for kids. If you’re planning a child’s birthday party within the next year, this package could be a solution – at a 50% saving. The four-hour party package (buy through September 3) includes a bounce house, a popcorn maker, snow cone maker, or cotton-candy maker and all the supplies for up to 25 guests, plus two tables and 20 chairs, delivered and set up at your home, school, or wherever you want to inflict enjoy the party.

You can use it multiple times, but check the TGI Friday’s coupon fine print for exclusions on promotional menu items. It’s for participating TGI Friday’s, and as I haven’t had chance to call the Albuquerque TGI Friday’s to check if they’re taking it, phone ahead if you want to be sure.

Comments Off on Food Freebies & Deals: Aug 26 – Sept 2, 2011

Albuquerque restaurant deals… and it’s a bumper crop including steak deals at Outback Steakhouse and Vernon’s Hidden Valley Steakhouse, Chick-fil-A free breakfast, free tacos for kids, and deals at Panda Express, Village Inn, Pueblo Harvest Cafe, Buca di Beppo, Prairie Star, Sushi King, Bandido Hideout, Da Vinci’s, Nicky V’s, Cosmo Tapas, and more…

Outback Steakhouse $5 off two entrees, or $2.50 off one entree. The coupon is available until August 29, or while supplies last. If you nab one, the coupon will be emailed in 48 hours (be sure to confirm your email address), then it’s valid to October 27. At time of writing, there are coupons available at both the Albuquerque Outback Steakhouse locations at Jefferson NE and at Coors NW.  And yes, I KNOW it’s says Free Steak Dinner at the link, but they launched this free steak promotion in the evening, with a limited quantity available in each location, and they all went by the time I’d finished writing a post to tell y’all about free steak. So now it’s the $5 off Outback Steakhouse coupon instead, which isn’t to be sniffed at. Or is to be sniffed at, depending on your carnivorous inclinations.

Vernon’s Hidden Valley Steakhouse $20 for $40 worth of steak and seafood. Get some of that speakeasy vibe along with your steak, in the half price deal available today through Sunday via Groupon. The certificate is valid until February 29, 2012.  

Pueblo Harvest Cafe tonight Friday August 26 from 6-9 pm. Live music on the patio by Los Radiators, plus $4 draft beers, $5 Margaritas, and $10 all you can eat appetizers (turkey wings, buffalo chicken wings, and various horno pizzas) at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center cafe. Their website is a bit annoying to navigate, but we’ve got this from a couple of sources so you might just have to take our word for it.

Free Tacos for kids at El Pinto.  Word from an El Pinto email that kids can munch down on free tacos on Saturday August 27 from 1-2 pm while Orbit from the Isotopes visits too. NO word on any minimum order needed, but I expect they’ll want parents to pay up for a meal!

LOVE Frozen Yogurt Bar anniversary celebrations on August 26-27 include a free photo booth. Get your pic taken and nab a free tote bag while supplies last at 5901 Wyoming Blvd NE.

Village Inn Coupon to get $5 off when you purchase two adult entrees and two beverages. Or use it for $2.50 off one adult entree and one drink. You can also get $2 off a whole pie with the coupon. Both valid to September 16, 2011.

Chick-fil-A Free Breakfast entree. From Monday August 29, reserve a free breakfast at the link, to be redeemed in the week of September 6 to 10, 2011. Hold your horses as it’s not a live offer yet, we’re just giving you the heads-up so you’re ready to score your free brekkie. And of course if you subscribe to ABQ on the Cheap, we’ll remind you on Monday!

Kids Eat Free at IHOP to August 31, 2011. Between 4pm and 10pm, a child aged 12 and under gets a free meal from the Just for Kids menu, with the purchase of an adult entree.  It’s one free kid’s meal per adult entree, on dine-in only, at participating locations.

Four Quiznos Coupons to celebrate Quiznos’ 30th Anniversary when you sign up for the (free) Quiznos email club QClub (via My Savings). Quiznos offers a limited quantity of these coupons, once a certain amount have been printed out, they remove them from the web. So if you’re interested, print sooner rather than later!

Panda Express Free Entree item with the purchase of a two or three entree plate, using the coupon until September 10, at participating locations.

Brasserie La Provence Cooking Class on September 13. Chef Claus cooks up a three course menu paired with fine wines. It’s $40 per person, with 36 seats available. Previous classes have been at 6:30 pm. Make reservations at (505) 254-7644.

Buca di Beppo $25 gift card for holiday party planners. Book a group lunch in December 2011 on Monday through Friday for minimum 20 people, and get a $25 Buca digital gift card for your own use on a later occasion. Deal conditions say that the lunch contract must be confirmed by September 30.

Taco Bell Nachos Supreme 99 Cents through August 27, no coupon needed, at participating locations. The limit is two per person, per visit.

Free Chili’s Appetizer when you join Chili’s email club. They send offers to email subscribers, and when you sign up (via MySavings) you can print out a coupon for a free Skillet Queso & Chips with the purchase of an entree.

Dinner & Wine for 2 for $60 at Prairie Star Restaurant on Wednesday evenings: Starter, entree, and dessert for two, plus a bottle of wine, all for $60 on Wednesdays only, at the Prairie Star Restaurant at the Santa Ana Golf Club. No coupon needed, but it’s probably wise to reserve a table.

Sunflower Markets Wine Sampling on Wednesday August 31 from 4-7 pm at the 6300 San Mateo Boulevard NE location tries out New Mexico wines, including a green chile wine. THIS I have to explore…

Nicky V’s Happy Hour gets you $1 off draft beer and glasses of wine from 3-6 pm on Sundays through Thursdays. Plus on Manic Mondays, all pints are $2.50 all day, with the exception of the black nectar: Guinness! 

80% off Restaurant.com already discounted dining certificates when you enter the promo code TASTY at checkout through August 31.  Restaurant.com certificates are already discounted, so prices with the extra 80% off promo code:

Starbucks Treat Receipt $2 drink. Customers who get their fix with a Starbucks purchase in the morning (on any day) can mosey on back the same day after 2 pm with their receipt to get a Grande sized cold drink for $2, plus tax, through September 5, 2011, at participating locations.
