Get FREE restaurant food when you sign up
Who doesn’t love FREE food?
Not only do many restaurants give you FREE food for your Birthday, many will also give away free menu items when you register for their birthday club, email list or download an app.
If you plan ahead a bit you can get FREE food on a regular basis when you dine out.
Most will send you their food offer within 24 hours of signing up so we recommend that you sign up the day PRIOR to when you would like to take advantage of the FREE food offer.
In exchange for your email address, you can get at least one free food item, and sometimes more, at these restaurant chains.
Visit a website, fill in a few details and get free food all in less than a minute. It sounds too good to be true, but it’s a reality at many restaurants.
Many chain restaurants have e-club offers that can save you up to $10, or even more, simply for giving up your email or cellphone number.
If you are wary of spam coming into your email, set up a separate account just for these freebies. Then, start signing up.
So let’s get to it.
