Comments Off on Flying Star Cafe Freebie for CNM Students & Staff

If you work or study at Central New Mexico Community College, bring your ID to these Flying Star locations until September 3, 2010, for a couple of extra treats…

Flying Star Cafe is giving Central New Mexico Community College students and staff a back to school treat of a free drink and free cookie (CNM themed cookie, no less) with the purchase of an entree at Flying Star Cafe in the Nob Hill and Bernalillo locations. The deal is only good this week, till Friday September 3.

CNM students and staff get a cookie for each entree you buy, plus either a soda, iced tea or coffee. So, you know, eat there all week. You’ll be cookied out.

You need to take your ID to get the deal, and although you’re never far from a Flying Star :-)  the offer is only valid at these two locations:

Flying Star Cafe Nob Hill (the original!) : 3416 Central Avenue SE

Friday Food Freebies and Deals for 8/14/09

August 14, 2009 by  
Filed under Freebies, Half Off Deals, Kids, Restaurants & Bars

We’re already in a great mood, but the notion of free food somehow makes our outlook even more golden. And not as in “arches.”

  • Free Cookie: Thanks to Matt for the tip! Enjoy this coupon for a free cookie with the purchase of any large beverage at Seattle’s Best Coffee cafés inside Borders. Expires 8/16/09. Three stores in Albuquerque and two in Santa Fe.
  • Improved 2 for $20: The previous Applebee’s 2 for $20 deal involved downsized entrées, but no more. They’ve revamped the menu to include “generous portions.” Works for us. The new menu includes 12 full-sized entrées to choose from. Eight locations around the area.
  • Kids Eat Free: Also from Applebee’s. We saw this advertised on the marquee at the Menaul location, and a friendly staff person there gave us the deets: ALL your kids can eat free on Mondays with the purchase of at least one adult meal. The friendly staff person said she believed most of the Applebee’s in Albuquerque were participating. Call ahead to verify.
  • Half Price Restaurant Certificates: Using Alibi Bucks, you can get get dining certificates for half off. So, for example, purchase a $20 gift certificate to a local restaurant and pay just $10! You can’t beat that. Currently available restaurants on the Alibi Bucks page: Calico Cantina, El Norteño, Gold Street Caffé, Pepper’s Ole Fashion BBQ, Pizza 9, Ponderosa Eatery & Saloon (Tijeras), and Sushi Gen.
  • More 50% Off Restaurant Certificates: Citadel Broadcasting has rolled out “Fifty50Fridays” across all its radio station websites. Each Friday, you can score half price gift certificates to local restaurants and other food-related businesses. For example, last week’s offer was a $50 certificate to Edible Arrangements for just $25. Check every Friday for the latest offer. TIP: If you use half-price restaurant certificates every time you eat out, you can save hundreds of dollars a year!
  • Free Beverage, Free Dessert, Free Bagel: And more! Rooster’s Downtown has rolled out a boatload of coupons for free food with no qualifying purchase. Just present the coupon and get your free food. Current coupons include: hot chocolate and a cookie; tea or coffee; bagel; dessert; beverage and refill. That’s a pure extravaganza of free food! Plus, if you present your Rail Runner ticket at Rooster’s you can always get a free beverage. Fourth and Central downtown.
  • Cake Coupons: Say it with us: cake coupons! And not just any cake: moist, delectable creations from Say It with Cake. Coupons include $3 off a dozen cupcakes, $5 off a half-sheet cake, and more. Westside.
  • BBQ Coupons: If you live in Rio Rancho and like barbecue, you’re gonna love this. Smokehouse BBQ not only offers live music on Friday and Saturday night, but now you can get some great coupon deals, like $5 off a $20 order or “buy 10 breakfast burritos, get 2 free.”
  • Free Appetizer: Los Equipales Restaurant still has a coupon for a free appetizer running on their site, but they’ve added a deal for a $50 gift certificate for just $25. You have to contact them directly for details. East Nob Hill.
  • Kids Eat Free: On Wednesdays at JB’s. If you love down home style cooking and have kids under age 10, here’s your deal! All day on Wednesday, get one free kids’ meal with each adult meal purchase. Looks to be good at both Albuquerque JB’s.

And that’s it for this week! Thanks for reading, and have a great weekend!
