TGI Friday’s Halloween free appetizer when you go in Halloween costume this weekend through October 31.

Haven’t had chance to call the ABQ TGI Friday’s to see if it’s on board, but they did participate last year.

TGI Friday’s BOGO Free Coupon to get a free entree when you buy one entree and two beverages for dine-in through November 1. It’s one coupon per table, per visit, at participating locations, and check the fine print for some exclusions on promo menus.

You *might* get a freebie at Old Town Pizza Parlor, if you eat fast! For their Halloween Ghost Chile Challenge, customers who order a sausage, cheese, and chile-smothered 10″ pizza (read hot) and eat it ALL up in 20 minutes, get the pizza free! Plus a $20 gift card. Personally I’d rather take my time to enjoy it and just pay for the pizza, but if you’re a fast eater anyway…. the Old Town Pizza Parlor offer runs through November 6.

PF Chang’s 20% Off Online Orders using the promo code: TREAT from tomorrow, October 29 to October 31. They announced the Halloweed deal on their Facebook page, but you don’t need to be a Facebook member to use the PF Chang’s promo code!

PF Chang’s Wine Deal Get a third off a bottle of wine all day on Mondays and Tuesdays through the month of November 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!

These Heritage Hotel coupons for their restaurants are all valid to December 30, 2011, so we have plenty of time to take advantage of them, including:

Waffle House Free Waffle using the coupon for dine-in only, until November 11, 2011.

Cheap Chicken: How does 5 pieces of chicken, 2 sides, and 2 biscuits sound? How about for only $6.99? Use the Popeyes Chicken Coupon for the San Mateo location, or the Popeyes Coupon for the Coors location. Both are good to December 31, 2011. Or find Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen coupons for another location. It does bother me that they don’t put an apostrophe in *Popeye’s* but it’s a good deal so I’ll forgive them.

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.

Denny’s 20% Off Coupon to get 20% off the entire check, excluding alcohol.

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.

Albuquerque restaurant deals, plus Mother’s Day offers and brunches, and other treats for moms if you’re looking for last minute ideas!

Boston Market Restaurants Free Family-Size Dessert when you buy any family meal, using the coupon on May 6 – 8 only. Check exclusions on the Boston Market Mother’s Day coupon at the link.

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.

Denny’s Free Pancake Puppies Sundae If you’re on Facebook, send mom an e-card for Mother’s Day and they’ll also send her a Denny’s coupon for a free Pancake Puppies Sundae. A Facebook membership is required because you have to Like their page to get the coupon…

Mimi’s Cafe Free Ghirardelli Chocolate for Mom on Mother’s Day. Dine at Mimi’s Cafe after 4 pm on Sunday May 8, spend a minimum of $10 on a dinner entree for mom, and then she’ll get a free Ghirardelli milk and caramel chocolate bar, while supplies 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!

Free Artisan Breakfast Sandwich for new members in the Starbucks Rewards program if you sign up by September 21. It looks like you have to buy a card with credit to use at Starbucks (minimum $15) to join, so I wouldn’t sign up just for the free sandwich :-) if you’re not a Starbucks regular. But if you were planning to get a My Rewards card anyway, this is the time to do it! Plus you get a free Starbucks drink on your birthday and other loyalty card rewards.

Thanks to Jennifer at Fort Worth on the Cheap for the Starbucks tip!
