Cheap Chicken: How does 5 pieces of chicken, 2 sides, and 2 biscuits sound? How about for only $6.99? Use the Popeyes Chicken Coupon for the San Mateo location, or the Popeyes Coupon for the Coors location. Both are good to December 31, 2011. Or find Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen coupons for another location. It does bother me that they don’t put an apostrophe in *Popeye’s* but it’s a good deal so I’ll forgive them.

Waffle House Free Hashbrowns

Filed under Restaurants & Bars

Comments Off on Waffle House Free Hashbrowns

Free Waffle House Hashbrowns

The Waffle House way of saying Happy New Year is with free hashbrowns – and I could just fancy some right now, especially with ketchup!

Use this Waffle House free hashbrowns coupon through January 15, 2011. It’s good for one single order of hashbrowns, and limited to one coupon per customer per visit at participating restaurants.  Add-ons are extra.

I heard about the Waffle House coupon in an email from the restaurant, but even if you’re not signed up with them for promotions news, they often post the same information at the Waffle House Twitter feed.

As usual, there’s no guarantee that all restaurants are participating in the coupon promo – call ahead if you want to be sure.  –Tania

Free IHOP Scary Face Pancake for kids today, Friday October 29. It’s one free pancake per child aged 12 and under, on dine in only, at participating locations between 7 am and 10 pm.

Whole Foods Market Apple Sale Today Friday October 29.  Organic honeycrisp apples are $1.49 a pound (usually $2.99), so that makes bobbing for apples or caramel apples (we call them toffee apples in my native country) a little easier on the pocket.

TGI Friday’s Halloween freebies when you go in Halloween costume:

  • Friday October 29 and Saturday October 30: Turn up in costume and get a free appetizer of fried mozzarrella, pot stickers, or crispy green bean fries.
  • Sunday October 31: Kids in costume eat free from the children’s menu, when accompanied by a paying adult. Each freebie for a kid requires one paid adult entree.

Boston Market Free Kids Meal to October 31 with any adult meal purchase when you use the coupon at the link. Other Boston Market Coupons are $1 off any individual plate, $2 off a $10 purchase, $4 off any $20 purchase (all expiring November 27) and $5 off a $20 Order Express purchase online (to November 9).

Free Fastino’s Carne Adovada Sandwich when you mention the promo code CA10 while ordering. Last chance for the free Carne Adovada offer – it ends October 30.

25% off Theobroma Chocolate Strawberries It’s a little indulgent for trick or treaters, but we’re in the last few days to get choc dipped strawbs for $15 a pound with the coupon instead of  the usual $20, to October 31. But we think they’re closed on Sunday so that really means October 30. (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. )

Half Off Pacific Rim Asian Bistro Get $20 for $40 worth of food and drink with the half price certificate available through Sunday from Living Social Albuquerque, then use by May 1, 2011, one per table per visit.

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.

$1 off Jack in the Box Pastrami Grilled Sandwich with the coupon. It’s one coupon per guest, per visit, at participating locations, till November 8.

Half Off O’Keeffe Café in Santa Fe Get $25 for $50 of food at the restaurant (it’s right next door to the O’Keeffe Museum.)

Albuquerque restaurant deals this week – it’s freebie city! Free Panda Express Thai entree with NO purchase needed, free burger combo,  free Chick-fil-A, free Slurpee, free Krispy Kreme (for some), plus Starbucks $2 drink, free Waffle House pie, 50% off for military, police, firefighters, 80% off Sophia’s Place… read the deals fast, some expire TODAY!

Free Lotaburger Combo TODAY Friday July 9 from 10 am to 4 pm (in case you missed our Wednesday Lotaburger post!). Free burger, fries, and drink combo ONLY at this location: Blake’s Lotaburger, 2529 Washington St. NE.

Free Chick-fil-A meal TODAY Friday July 9 for Cow Appreciation Day at all locations all day if you go fully dressed as a cow! If you come partially dressed as a cow, such as a cow spotted hat or bandana, you’ll get some kind of free entree item/sandwich. If you didn’t see our post on this last week, then it’s cutting it fine to grab the starter kit and details for Cow Appreciation Day, but you can make some effort at the partial cow kit, can’t you? Albuquerque locations are Chick-fil-A Paseo del Norte and Chick-fil-A Cottonwood Corners.

Free Slurpee at 7-Eleven on Sunday July 11 at participating stores. Apparently it’s 7-Eleven Day 2010 – another birthday party!

Free Panda Express on July 14 with no purchase needed!? Get a free entree of Thai Cashew Chicken Breast only on July 14 with this Thai Cashew Chicken coupon.

Free Krispy Kreme Doughnuts on July 13? Maybe… for some of you! We’ll try to keep you posted but the scoop so far is that they’re opening their new ABQ Krispy Kreme location on July 13 at Wyoming Mall on Wyoming & Menaul with promises of free doughnuts for a year if you’re one of the first in line at 5:30 am (gulp!) and that the first two dozen people in line get prizes. Does that mean that first 24 people all get free Krispy Kreme for a year? Dunno, they’re being irritatingly coy about the specifics. But if you’re an early bird it seems something sweet and sticky good will happen…

Starbucks $2 cold beverage with the Starbucks Treat Receipt promotion.  Make a Starbucks purchase before 2 pm any day and then return the same day after 2 pm with your receipt to get a grande sized cold drink for just $2! Promo good till October 4, 2010.

80% off Restaurant.com certificates and gift cards with the promo code: FUN  (Enter the code at checkout to see the discount). Buy by July 12, no expiration date on certificates. Participating Albuquerque restaurants include:

  • $8 for a $100 certificate
  • $8 for a $100 Restaurant.com Gift Card
  • To get the 80% off, select your Restaurant.com certificates and enter the promo code FUN at the check out page. (The full 80% discount doesn’t show till then.)

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!

$1 off the New Double Chili Cheeseburgers at Wienerschnitzel with this coupon good to July 31.

$15 bottles of wine at Vivace Nob Hill On Monday and Tuesday nights, Vivace serves 15 different wines at just $15 a bottle.

Free pie at Waffle House – get a free small slice of pie when you dine in. Last chance reminder on this! The coupon expires July 10, 2010.

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

Thanks for tips from Tucson on the Cheap and Wichita on the Cheap.
