Comments Off on Subway BOGO Free in April

Sunrise Subway MeltWake up and smell the freebie! Subway has a BOGO free deal running for breakfast through the month of April 2013,  and although I’m writing this at dinner time, I rather wish it were breakfast already.

During April, if you buy a 6 inch sandwich by 9 am on any morning, you can get another Subway sandwich free!

As usual with Buy One Get One free deals, the free sandwich must be of equal or lesser value.

The sandwich in the photo is a Sunrise Subway Melt. I chose it for the rather pretty name, but the contents don’t look bad either: turkey, bacon, ham, egg white, cheese, and veggies.

The Subway BOGO free sub offer is available daily at participating Subways, so call ahead if you want to be sure your favorite location is running the deal.

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.

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.

Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory Deal $10 for half-dozen chocolate-covered strawberries (worth $21) or $10 for four caramel apples or candy apples (worth up to $26). 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!

$24 for $10 Subway Card & Two Fandango Movie Tickets

January 9, 2012 by  
Filed under Food, Movies, Restaurants & Bars

Comments Off on $24 for $10 Subway Card & Two Fandango Movie Tickets

Get a $10 Subway gift card and two movie tickets for $24 for a limited time in a national deal. Choose National when purchasing in the drop down box requesting the Deal City.

The tickets can be redeemed at Fandango.com through February 12, 2012, and are valid at many Albuquerque area (and national) movie theaters. The $10 Subway card doesn’t expire, although you must redeem your voucher to get the card within 60 days, and it’s mailed to you, with free shipping.

Get the Subway and a movie deal via Saveology  while supplies last – selecting NATIONAL as the deal city when purchasing. And as it’s a national deal, sometimes these movie ticket deals have a cap on the quantities available.

The offer is best for adults buying tickets for evening movies at the theaters that usually charge around $10 – $10.50 per ticket. For matinees, or discounted kids’ or seniors’ movie tickets, or if you tend to go to the cheaper theaters such as Cinemark or anywhere that tickets are $6 each or less, it’s not really a bargain.

Otherwise, the tickets are good for the movie of your choice, excluding IMAX movies, up to a value of $12 each, and will work for any theaters that sell tickets through Fandango.com, including:

  • Century 14 Downtown Albuquerque
  • UA Cottonwood
  • UA Winrock 6
  • UA High Ridge 8
  • UA Four Hills 10
  • Century Rio 24

You can see a quick list of Albuquerque Fandango.com ticketing theaters at the link.

Check all the $24 for a $10 Subway gift card and two movie tickets  deal fine print to make sure it’s a good choice for you, and when purchasing and asked for your deal city, select NATIONAL.

The $10 Subway card should be enough to cover you for two footlongs, which is why they’re calling the promo: Two Footlongs and a Flick!
