Comments Off on Food Freebies & Deals: September 2 – 9, 2011

Albuquerque restaurant discounts, free food, and coupons for Labor Day and beyond… including Chick-fil-A, Panda Express, PF Chang’s, Buca di Beppo, Marble Brewery, a kids’ party package, save on wine, and more…

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.  

Free Chick-fil-A Breakfast during the week of September 6-10, 2011. Sign up at the link to reserve your free breakfast entree for the date and time of your choice. Options include Chick-fil-A Chicken Biscuit; Bacon, Egg, and Cheese biscuit; chicken or sausage breakfast burritos; a bagel stuffed with chicken, egg, and cheese, and several other free breakfast choices. Quantities are limited, but there are still free Chick-fil-A breakfasts available at both Albuquerque Chick-fil-A locations (Paseo del Norte and Cottonwood).

PF Chang’s 20% Off Online Orders using the promo code: KICKOFF until September 5. They announced the code on their Facebook page, but you don’t need to be a Facebook member to use the promo code!

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.

Boston Market 25% Off Labor Day coupon for 25% off any family meal on Monday September 5 only, at participating Boston Market Restaurants.

TGI Friday’s 15% Off your table’s food purchase, with the coupon through September 7. It’s good on the entire table’s order, but only on food and only for dine-in. 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.

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

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.

$25 for $75 Worth of Wine Pick $75 worth of wine online for $25 in a deal available today September 2, only. The offer via Groupon can also be used for shipping, although if you order a case of wine, shipping is only 1 cent.  Buy the $25 for $75 of Wine certificate today, redeem it by March 4, 2012.

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.

Cold Stone Creamery Buy One Get One Free Creation with the coupon to September 8. Scroll way down at the link to find the BOGO coupon, (and yes I know they mention the Cold Stone Creamery Ice Cream Social too, but that’s not till September 27 and I’ll remind you about it nearer the time). The BOGO deal is valid for Small, Regular, and Large sizes, in a cup with up to 4 mix-ins,and it’s one per customer, per visit. (So you can use it several times on different occasions!)

KFC $10 for 10 Piece Bucket with the Labor Day coupon valid only on September 3 – 5.  The link goes to a PDF, and you can use it at the participating Albuquerque KFC locations (and others in NM)  listed on the KFC coupon!

Septemberfest at Marble Brewery on September 10 offers unlimited sampling from 17 New Mexico breweries, live music, and the $20 ticket also gets you a pint of beer, and a souvenir glass. Buy tickets in advance at Marble Brewery and they’ll stand you a free pint at time of purchase too!

Vernon’s Hidden Valley Steakhouse launches its VIP Bar and Cigar Patio with a grand opening on September 8 at 6 pm. Admission is $25 for the opening, with wine, beer, and bourbon tastings, a Montes Cigar show, a chance to meet the artist Gabe Ballantine, and maybe win a print.

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.

Einstein Bros. Bagels Free Travel Mug when you pre-order a bagel bucket at Einstein Bros. Bagels for pick up on May 7 or May 8.  The mother’s day deal excludes half-dozen, pick six, and baker’s dozen, and the free mug is while stocks last.

Half-price Frappuccinos at Starbucks through May 15, during Frappuccino happy hour from 3 – 5 pm.

Sandiago’s at the Tram BOGO Free Entree Get one entree free when you buy one entree and two drinks, using the coupon via Premium Shopping Guide until May 31, 2011.  It’s not valid on Mother’s day though (darn it) but Sandiago’s Mexican Grill at the Tramway is one of my fave sunset-watching places even without a free entree incentive!

Entertainment Books $15 plus free shipping to May 9.  The price has dropped from $40 per book to $15 and the Albuquerque / Santa Fe Entertainment Book contains $11,800 worth of coupons for local restaurant, attractions, and entertainment, plus a bonus card worth up to $30 of discounts at TGI Friday’s, The Cooperage, Black Angus Steakhouse, Scarpa’s Brick Oven Pizza, etc. The Albuquerque / Santa Fe Entertainment Book with 2-for-1 coupons, discounts and some freebies, includes Scalo, Vivace, Brasserie La Provence, Artichoke Cafe, Fuddruckers, Burger King, Pizza Hut, Cazuela’s Mexican Grill, Golden Pride, Uptown Sports Bar & Grill, Gardunos… and many more.

Pizza Nine Coupons include:

  • Free 2 liter soda with any medium or large pizza purchase
  • Free dessert with any medium or large pizza purchase
  • $5 off any $20 purchase
  • Free medium pizza and two toppings when you buy a large specialty pizza (only for carry-out orders)

All Pizza Nine coupons expire May 31, one per person, and you can only use one at a time. You can’t combine all the above, otherwise they’d be paying YOU to eat there 😉

Wine Tasting at Savoy Bar & Grill – Dalla Terra Wine Tasting on Saturday May 14 at 3 pm. Try a variety of Italian wines paired with “small bites” for $30 a head plus tax and tip. Places are limited – you need to make a reservation before they fill.

Albuquerque The Magazine Coupon Book I just got my Food and Wine May issue of Albuquerque The Magazine, with their annual restaurant coupons for 25% off Tim’s Place, 20% off Asian Noodle Bar, and BOGO 50% off at Chow’s Asian Bistro, Coolwater Fusion, Glazed Hams & More, Serafin’s Chile Hut, The Cube BBQ, as well as a bunch of  free food with purchase and other deals.

Most coupons are valid through April 2012, and I always use at least half the coupons over the year. So even though I was sorry to see the April Facebook issue of ATM go off the shelves (did you see my feature on The Like Button? I had such a great time interviewing local businesses for that) at least it was replaced by an issue that saves me money!

Häagen-Dazs Free Cone Day on May 10 from 4-8 pm. A free scoop of any flavor at Häagen-Dazs shops. The bummer is we don’t have one in Albuquerque but the Santa Fe Häagen-Dazs (56 East San Francisco St) and the Los Alamos location (800 Trinity Drive) are both participating. So this one’s for our northern readers or anyone heading up to the City Different or the Atomic City on May 10.

Albuquerque Mother’s Day Brunch

If you haven’t got your groove on for Mother’s Day yet, then here are a few places where you can TREAT that lady!

All seem reasonable deals for the locations, all on Sunday May 8, 2011. Tax and tip are extra, and reservations are recommended, and sometimes required:

Whole Foods Market Apple Sale Today Friday October 29.  Organic honeycrisp apples are $1.49 a pound (usually $2.99), so that makes bobbing for apples or caramel apples (we call them toffee apples in my native country) a little easier on the pocket.

TGI Friday’s Halloween freebies when you go in Halloween costume:

  • Friday October 29 and Saturday October 30: Turn up in costume and get a free appetizer of fried mozzarrella, pot stickers, or crispy green bean fries.
  • Sunday October 31: Kids in costume eat free from the children’s menu, when accompanied by a paying adult. Each freebie for a kid requires one paid adult entree.

Free Fastino’s Carne Adovada Sandwich when you mention the promo code CA10 while ordering. Last chance for the free Carne Adovada offer – it ends October 30.

But we think they’re closed on Sunday so that really means October 30. (Ignore the coupon’s expiry date of May 2010, we’ve confirmed with Theobroma Chocolatier and the 25% off coupon is definitely valid to October 31, 2010. )

Half Off Pacific Rim Asian Bistro Get $20 for $40 worth of food and drink with the half price certificate available through Sunday from Living Social Albuquerque, then use by May 1, 2011, one per table per visit.

So after printing you have to claim your free Frutista Freeze fast. Once they’ve run out, a note to that effect will be at the Taco Bell coupon page.

$1 off Jack in the Box Pastrami Grilled Sandwich with the coupon. It’s one coupon per guest, per visit, at participating locations, till November 8.

Get 10 mixed-level lunchtime yoga classes at YogaNow (worth $120) with this Groupon deal available to purchase till midnight Sunday August 15. See details at the link for how/when to use the certificates, it’s this weekend’s side deal (right side of page) and they need a minimum 15 people to buy the Yoga Classes Groupon before the deal is on, otherwise your credit card isn’t charged.
