Panera Bread: Free Samples!

***This is today!!!***

Panera Bread Bakery Cafes( have been cooking up some exciting new menu offerings premiering this fall, with a day of free taste samples on Thursday, September 10.

Along with a new Breakfast Power Sandwich featuring Vermont cheddar and ham on grilled whole grain bread are two new chicken-based salads: a BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad, and a Napa Chicken Salad Sandwich served on Semolina Bread. Panera hasn’t forgotten those with a sweet tooth, enlarging their dessert offerings with a Macademia Nut Blondie flavored with butterscotch chips.

As always, call your store ahead of time to verify participation.

Kids Eat FREE on Thursday at Captain D’s

Captain D’s is offering 2 FREE kid’s meals with any adult entree purcahse at regular price, each and every Thursday. With the new ‘Double Dozen Shrimp’ dinner starting at just $3.99, this could make for a very cheap dinner out. This offer is only valid for dine in orders.

We love Captain D’s, because they offer more healthy choices, other than just deep fried side dishes. Of course, I always have to get the fried bread instead of hushpuppies- it’s delicious!

Call your store ahead of time to verify that they participate in this promotion.

You can visit the website here for more information. While you’re there, sign up for the mailing list and the kid’s club to get some more great coupons!

Free Food on your Birthday!

If you’ve ever signed up for a restaurant email newsletter, chances are that you’ve noticed that your inbox begins to bulge during your birthday month (coincidentally, so does my waistline). I started getting emails on July 1st, and will continue to do so throughout the month. Luckily, I haven’t signed up with very many restaurants, or my head would be spinning!

I thought I’d start sharing some of the great coupons that I’ve gotten, so that you know where to sign up! One thing I’ve noticed is that NONE of these coupons have restrictions that require you to purchase an additional meal to get your freebie. This may just lead to some well deserved alone time!

McAlister’s Deli:
$5 off of any entree purchase

Red Robin Burgers:
Free Gourmet Burger

Zio’s Italian Eatery:
Free Entree

Do you know of any restaurants that offer great birthday coupons or discounts?

Free Meal at Chick-Fil-A

On Friday, July 10th; Chick-Fil-A is offering FREE meals to those who come into the restaurant dressed like a cow. Yes, real people do this, and I can honestly say that I’ve been a part of the festivities. If you do not know where to start in designing your cow costume, you can get a free costume kit here.
