Panda Express free Shanghai Angus Steak on Tax Day, Tuesday April 17 at participating locations. This is for a single serving of the new Panda Express entree, and no purchase is necessary! But you do need the Panda Express coupon and it’s only valid on April 17.

15% off all P.F Chang’s food purchases on April 17.  Dine in or take out. Not valid on beverages, happy hour food, or P.F. Chang’s for Two, but otherwise just turn up with a taxing appetite.   

Sonic Half Price Drinks and Slushes in an all-day happy hour on Tax Day April 17 so you don’t have to sweat the small stuff…

Chili’s Grill & Bar Free Appetizer or Dessert when you buy an adult entree from April 16 – 18, using a printable Chili’s tax day coupon or showing it on a smart phone at participating restaurants. According to the PR Newswire press release, to get the coupon you’ll have to be Chili’s email club member (or sign up for Chili’s email club), or get it from Facebook or Twitter. (I don’t see it at time of writing, probably too early yet.)

Two Free Cinnabon Bites  on April 17 – two freebies per person between 6 pm and 8 pm – note those are both PM times, it’s an evening offer – at participating locations.

Brasserie La Provence Wine Dinner on April 17 gets you four courses paired with Louis Bernard French wines for $55. The dinner starts at 6:30 pm. Reserve a table in advance.

You can buy 2 deals plus one as a gift (that’s a lot of candied fruit, people!) in the offer via Groupon for a limited time, and then use the certificates by July 31 at the Cottonwood Mall store. Candy apples could be a nice present for the teacher!

Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes Seniors Deal on Monday through Thursday from 2 – 5 pm. An email from S&ST tells us that for $6.99, seniors 60+ can get “as much or as little as you like” of salads, soups, pasta, muffins, breads, desserts and free coffee and drinks. No coupon is needed. I’d check with the server that they’re honoring this BEFORE you start to chow down!

Starbucks Petites Deal to get two Petites for $2 until April 22. Although right now I’m pretty annoyed at Starbucks as some head office rep contacted me to offer a giveaway to ABQ on the Cheap readers, and then when I said Yes Please, they decided they didn’t have enough giveaway gift sets after all. Pretty lame behavior and a waste of my time. But it’s still a good Petites deal :-) and it’s not the fault of local locations and the lovely people who work in them!

Ree Drummond Pioneer Woman free talk about her new cookbook The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From My Frontier on Monday April 30 at 6 pm in free Bookworks event at the Simms Center for the Performing Arts Auditorium. You have to get your free tickets in advance, as they have limited space!

Get a Carl’s Junior free Oreo Ice Cream Sandwich when you buy any size Southwest Patty Melt Combo. Or use these Carl’s Jr Coupons at participating restaurants:

Auntie Anne’s free Almond Pretzel when you buy a Pretzel Dog and 21 oz. fountain soda or lemonade. Get the coupon by filling in the form at the link and they email it to you in a one-time mailing. If you want to sign up for monthly Auntie Anne’s Pretzel Perks coupons, check the box in the form.

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!

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!

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.

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.

Comments Off on Food Freebies & Deals: November 12-19, 2010

Albuquerque restaurant deals this week include free tacos, free coffee, and specials from El Pinto, Say it With Cake, KFC, Denny’s, and more. There’s even a single day shrimp sale special, which is better written than said out loud.  

Whole Foods Half Price Shrimp Today only, Friday November 12. Medium size cooked shrimp is $5.99 a pound in today’s shrimp sale (why does ‘today’s shrimp sale’ make me laugh?). Shrimp is usually $11.99 a pound so that’s $6 off and you can buy it thawed or frozen. Time to stock up the freezer?  Everyone else will probably be doing that so there’s a limit of 10 pounds per customer. Sale is at both the Albuquerque Whole Foods Market (Indian Plaza at 2103 Carlisle Blvd. NE & Academy store at 5815 Wyoming Blvd NE).

Two Free Tacos from Jack in the Box on Tuesday November 16 after 2 pm. No purchase needed and one freebie per person while supplies last at participating locations. Remember – the tacos giveaway is from 2 pm onwards!

Burger King Free Coffee Fridays During breakfast hours every Friday to the end of November. NO purchase necessary to get a free 12 oz cup of Seattle’s Best Coffee at Burger King!

KFC Free Side and Drink with the coupon when you buy a Doublicious sandwich till November 14. Limit one per person.

Say It With Cake $15 Off Get a $30 voucher for $15 to spend on custom cake, pie, or cupcakes (only exclusion is wedding cakes. The voucher via Albuquerque Living Social is available for purchase till Sunday November 14, and it’s valid till May 15, 2011. (If the link requests your email address in order to see the deal and you don’t want to give it, bypass it by scrolling down to Terms and Conditions at the bottom, click that, then click Today’s Deal on the next page!)

El Pinto BOGO Free for Veterans Active military and veterans with ID get a free entree at El Pinto with the purchase of another till Thursday November 18.

Golden Corral Military Appreciation Monday Veterans and active duty military members dine free on November 15  from 5 – 9 pm. There are 3 Golden Corral restaurants in the Albuquerque area; all are participating.

Pizza Hut Deal 2 medium pizzas with up to 3 toppings, for $6 each. This is a limited time offer till November 20, and according to Pizza Hut on Twitter it’s good on dine in, carry out, or delivery. You have to buy TWO pizzas to get the $6 price – a nice idea for date night?

50% off Lumpy’s Burgers Pay $12 for $24 worth of restaurant certificates (2 x $12 certificates) valid at the 5240 Central SW location until March 31, 2011. Use the CityDeals certificates just like cash, see the deal info for other details. They’re mailed next business day, shipping is 99 cents, and the limit is 4 certificates per household (2 to use as gifts).

Denny’s Free $5 Gift Card with a $25 gift card purchase. If you buy the Denny’s gift card card online there’s a $1.95 shipping and handling charge, so do yourself a favor and buy it a Denny’s restaurant to save the bucks!

Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen Free $10 Reward Card with the purchase of $50 worth of Pappas Gift Cards between November 15 and 24.  (The free reward card is then valid from December 27 – February 28).

Ben & Jerry’s Coupons for Take-out Pints Last chance for discounts at the Ben & Jerry’s store only with the coupon to November 15. One pint for $4, two for $7, three for $9 and four for $11. Print the flyer and take it in to the Ben & Jerry’s store, at 11225 Montgomery NE.

Free Taco Bell Orange ‘n Creme Swirl Frutista Freeze good for one freebie per person from participating locations. It’s valid until November 25, 2010, or until the 500,000 free drinks are redeemed, whichever comes first.  Note that this means the coupons are redeemed, not just printed out. 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.

One Up Elevated Lounge Tasty Tuesdays  $1 for four wings and free pool with the purchase of a regular menu item (both from 8pm) plus drinks specials on Tuesdays.

Savoy Bar & Grill Italian Wine Tasting on November 20 at 3 pm. The Italian wines are paired with “small bites” and the wine tasting costs $30 per person, plus tax and tip. Reservations required.

Vivace Annual Opera Dinner on Sunday, December 12, at 6:30 pm. Five courses paired with five wines and accompanied by Albuquerque opera singers for $90 all inclusive.
