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!

Being offered a free dessert from Flying Star Cafe is kind of like being offered free champagne from Dom Perignon. Well, almost.

For a limited time, you can get a free dessert at the Bernalillo Flying Star with a $20 purchase. They define “dessert” as “one cookie, one pastry, one slice of pie, or one slice of cake,” but, sadly, not “a whole pie or whole cake.” Obviously, they’ve never seen us eat dessert. Or maybe they have.

The coupon for free dessert at Flying Star Bernalillo is good through April 15, 2009, so get it while the gettin’s good.

By the way, the Bernalillo location is still offering their kids eat free promotion, too.

Flying Star Bernalillo is located at 200 S. Camino del Pueblo, Bernalillo, NM.
