Eating out is always a joy, but it can also be expensive! Of course, it doesn’t always have to be expensive. There are many ways to reduce your restaurant bill without sacrificing the quality of food. Here is an article I posted on my other blog, Newlywed Survival, that gives you 9 ways to save money when eating out.
Coupons can be clipped from numerous sources, including newspapers, direct mailings and the phone book. One of the best sources for coupons is the internet – numerous blogs, websites & retailers offer great deals. Clip these coupons or print them as you find them to save money when you are hungry.
2. Frequent Eaters Discounts
Many chains offer discounts to diners who eat there often. The largest subway chain in the nation often offers a discount card that diners have punched each time they eat there. When the diner eats there five times, the subway chain gives the diner a free sandwich. Free is always good! Keep these cards in your wallet or purse so when you decide to eat there at the last moment you have the card handy.
3. Sign Up for Emails and Text Alerts
Many restaurants offer email programs. When a restaurant offers these programs, make sure and sign up. Often, the best discounts can be found in these newsletters. Other restaurants offer text alerts with special discounts for mentioning a code word. Make sure you are on these lists.
