Starbucks Free Coffee Samples Get a free sample of Starbuck’s new line of VIA Flavored Coffees – it’s Mocha flavor on Friday October 8, and Cinnamon Spice on Saturday October 9. Plus if you buy one of the new flavors by October 9, they’ll whip you up a free tall beverage of your choice.

Albuquerque Restaurant deals include 90% off dining certificates offer for today only, $5 off  TGI Friday’s, Red Lobster discounts, 60% off Jersey Jack’s, and deals at CiCi’s Pizza, Coolwater Fusion, and more.

The Restaurant.com 90% off deal we posted about yesterday has been extended to today, October 1, 2010. For today only at Restaurant.com, use the promo code WOW at checkout to save a further 90% on already heavily discounted restaurant certificates. That means most $25 certificates cost just $1 if you purchase today at Restaurant.com with the promo code WOW.  Enter the code at checkout – the discount doesn’t show till then. See our earlier post for more details and participating restaurants!

Red Lobster Discounts Get $3 off two adult lunch entrees and $4 off two adult dinner entrees with this Red Lobster coupon. It’s part of their Endless Shrimp promotion, although the coupon says it’s good for any entrees, so we assume you don’t HAVE to eat shrimp! Coupon expires November 15, 2010.

$5 off TGI Friday’s Coupon Good for $5 off a $15 food purchase. We love the great TGI Friday’s deals lately! This one is valid on dine-in to October 9, and we’ve confirmed with the Albuquerque TGI Friday’s that it is a participating restaurant.

Coolwater Fusion BOGO Free Buy one entree and get a second entree for half price at Coolwater Fusion on Wyoming Blvd with the BOGO Coupon via Valpak. I haven’t been to Coolwater Fusion, looks like it’s new. Any one checked it out? Leave word in the comment box below…

10% Off Albuquerque Hopfest Tickets Final Day Last chance to get 10% off Hopfest tickets – well, the last chance we know about anyway using the coupon code for the October 16 event.

60% Off Jersey Jack’s Eatery Pay $8 for $20 worth of gift certificates via CityDeals – you get 2 x $10 vouchers and use them just like cash.

Half Off Old Town Pizza Parlor with these $20 certificates for $10 via CityDeals. You can buy multiple certificates, check fine print for details. Next day shipping is 99 cents, certificates valid till March 31, 2011.

Kid’s buffet in other locations may be priced differently. This is correct for the ABQ location which is confirmed as participating in the promo! Cici’s Pizza in Albuquerque is located at 4770 Montgomery NE.

Free Wienerschnitzel Double Ultimate Chili Cheeseburger Last chance – the coupon expires October 2 to get the free burger when you buy Ultimate Chili Cheese Fries at regular price.

Ben & Jerry’s Take-out Pints get cheaper the more you buy at the Ben & Jerry’s store only.  One pint for $4, two for $7, three for $9 and four for $11. You need to print the flyer and take it in to the Ben & Jerry’s store, at 11225 Montgomery NE. Coupon expires October 7.

50% off Cafe Choroni thanks to Good Day New Mexico’s Half Price Thursday. Buy $50 worth of dining certificates for $25, and use by January 31, 2011. (Shipping cost is $3.75, check the deal details for how you may use the certificates.) Quantities are limited!

Half Price Wine at Mimi’s Cafe: Every Wednesday ALL day, ALL bottles of wine are 50% off.

One pound minimum purchase, maximum five pounds with the discount. Coupon valid to October 31, 2010. (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. )

Military, police, and firefighters get 50% off Marcello’s Chophouse at lunch, when you wear your uniform! You serve us, let them serve YOU. What a great deal Marcello’s!

Quiznos $2.99 Sub, Chips, Drink with this coupon valid to August 20.  A small sub, regular fountain drink, and of course the chips.

$39 for 10 Lunchtime Yoga Classes. Buy before midnight August 15.  This has only the loosest connection to food, but it happens at lunchtime, and I think it’s a brilliant deal…. oh, and you ALSO get a free protein bar after each class! 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.

Old Town Salsa Fiesta this Saturday August 14 – free salsa samples and $4 to judge the Best Homemade Salsa contest – all the details at our earlier post.

NOTE: Not all locations may be participating in all offers – call ahead if you want to be sure.
ADDED LATER: If you spotted my not-so-deliberate mistake in this post, enter to win a $25 restaurant gift certificate.  All the facts/info are correct, it’s just a writing blunder.

Thanks to our friends at Florida on the Cheap for tipping us off to a couple of these deals!

Albuquerque restaurant deals this week include Free slice of Pizza, Mimi’s Cafe Soup and Salad special, Lucia restaurant offer, 39 cent tacos, Foursquare freebie, 15% off China Luck, plus deals on Jack in the Box, Chili’s and more…

Free slice of Fastino’s Rosemary Spinach Pizza when you mention the code POPEYE44. We think the deal is this week only but it’s not clear – we’re checking today and will update here! Confirmed – it’s running to Sunday August 8. Fastino’s is at 2600 Juan Tabo Boulevard NE.

Mimi’s Cafe $5.99 Soup and Salad Special – $5.99 for a cup of soup and either a green or Caesar salad with this coupon to August 27 . You must buy a beverage. Deal is good for lunch or dinner.

Landry’s Seafood House Happy Hour: $5 martinis, $4 wines, $3 well cocktails, $1.50 draft beers. Happy hour food starts at $3 (fried zucchini topped with lemon pepper Parmesan sounds good) and includes $5 fish tacos, sliders, and calamari. Happy hour specials are daily from 3 – 7 pm, and are available in the bar and on the patio only. Albuquerque Landry’s is at 5001 Jefferson St. NE.

$20 for $40 worth at Lucia restaurant in Hotel Andaluz (breakfast, lunch, or dinner) PLUS the Groupon certificate pays the cover charge for two people ($10 each) to the Ibiza rooftop bar. The food is great at Lucia (it’s one of Mr Cheap’s fave restaurants). Deal details:

  • Buy before midnight Sunday August 8, certificates are valid till February 9, 2011
  • $20 Groupon deal is good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner at Lucia
  • You can use the Ibiza cover charge portion of the certificate separately from the Lucia dining part if you want to go at different times – Ibiza only charges a $10 cover on Friday & Saturday night so use it then!

Del Taco 39 cent tacos – that’s 20 cents off the regular tacos usually priced 59 cents. The 39 cent tacos are a limited time summer deal. On Tuesday nights (3 – 11 pm) it’s even a few cents cheaper – $1.09 for 3 regular tacos. Here are the four Albuquerque Del Taco locations and one in Los Lunas.

15% off China Luck Get a 15% discount on any dine in or take out order at China Luck (7900 San Pedro Dr NE) with this coupon via Valpak. Not valid on drinks or buffet, good till August 20.

Foursquare subscribers get free chips and salsa at Chili’s Grill & Bar when they check in on Foursquare that they are at a participating Chili’s location. (Locations are shown on Foursquare with a ‘special offer’ flag when you’re within 200 yards of the restaurant.) No web link, just saw the press release. Here’s Chili’s restaurant locator.

NOTE: Not all locations may be participating in all offers – call ahead if you want to be sure.

Thanks for tips to reader Dhawal and to our foodie friends at Tucson on the Cheap and Miami on the Cheap.

Comments Off on Friday Food Freebies & Deals: June 4-11, 2010

Albuquerque restaurant deals this week include free doughnuts, $10 off Prairie Star, $10 off Pars Cuisine, 50% off Casa Vieja, $1 off Wienerschnitzel burgers, $15 bottles of wine,  half priced burgers, three for two tapas, free Coca-Cola at Waffle House, $1 off draft beers, pizza specials, and more…

Free doughnuts today Friday June 4 at Krispy Kreme and Dunkin’ Donuts in celebration of National Doughnut Day – just in case you missed our post earlier this week!

$1 off the New Double Chili Cheeseburgers at Wienerschnitzel with this coupon good to July 31. (Yeah, I’m sorry, that’s how they spell it. It’s actual chili as opposed to actual chile. I expect it’s still very nice.) Thanks to Editor at Large Ron for the tip.

$15 bottles of wine at Vivace Nob Hill On Monday and Tuesday nights, Vivace serves 15 different wines at just $15 a bottle. Fittingly for the Italian restaurant, wines on offer are from Italy, and from California too!

Savor Albuquerque restaurant coupons are valid from June 4 to 13:

  • $10 off Prairie Star Restaurant and Wine Bar with a food purchase of $25 or more
  • Free appetizer or dessert at La Oja Restaurant at the Doubletree Hotel with dinner purchase
  • $10 off Pars Cuisine with a food purchase of $40

Save 50% at Casa Vieja in Corrales, thanks to Good Day New Mexico’s Half Price Thursday. Buy a $50 dining certificate for $25, and use it till the end of December 2010. (Note: It’s not valid on Friday or Saturday nights, and shipping cost is $3.75.) Casa Vieja is one of my fave restaurants, and I guess I’m not alone in that, so you’d better act fast – quantities are limited!

Gecko’s Bar & Tapas specials after 6 pm only:

  • 20 cent wings on Mondays
  • Three for two tapas on Tuesdays
  • Half priced burgers on Wednesdays

Free Coca~Cola brand soft drink at Waffle House with this coupon expiring June 15. (Scroll down a bit to see it.) Dine in only, one coupon per customer per visit. (So I guess you can take it in several times if you’re a frequent Waffler.) Thanks to our mother ship Cities on the Cheap for the tip.

Venezia’s Pizzeria daily specials include:  

  • $18 for a 16 inch 2 topping pizza and 12 wings on Fridays
  • Free two-liter soft drink when you buy a large extreme pizza on Saturdays
  • $3 off a 24 inch pizza on Sundays
  • 50 cent Buffalo Wings on Wednesdays

$1 off draft beers all day Wednesdays at Hallenbrick Brewery. The bargain beer deal is running through June 2010. Hallenbrick Brewery is at 3817 Hawkins NE.

Wine Down Thursdays take place through July 29th at the Downtown Crossroads Mall and onto the Hyatt Regency patio. Sadly, the wine isn’t free (or if it is, someone should tell me about it PRONTO!) but the event includes live music, plus food, arts and crafts vendors, and it sounds like a fun food and wine event. It’s from 4:30 to 7:30 pm on Thursdays.

Note: Not all locations may be participating in all offers – call ahead if you want to be sure.
