Please post any deals you have found. Here are mine:

We like to eat out or order in a few times a month if the budget allows and I'm always looking for ways to stretch our eating out $$. We have taken advantage of the Logan's 2 dinners for $13.99 a couple of times. The portions are great - I always take some home and the selection is pretty good. Right now it is Mon-Wed or any day between 3-6pm. A good value IMHO.

Another eating out deal I found is our local Papa Johns. They have a coupon for a one item large pizza for $5.99 - good only Monday and Tuesday for carryout. We like their pizza and their large is bigger than Little Caesars (my DH doesn't like LC - the one closest to us leaves a good two inches of crust all the way around the edge so you feel like you are eating crust with a little bit of topping). I can get two large one item pizzas for $12 plus tax and serve it with a salad and/or fresh fruit. We have enough leftovers for the kids to take a piece of pizza in their lunch the next day and DH to have a piece for breakfast. It took me about three weeks of "remembering" to move our pizza night from Friday to Tuesday. We usually take advantage of this deal a couple of times a month and Tueday is great because the kids usually have sports that night and we don't have much time for meal prep anyway.

Applebee's 2 for $20 deal is awesome!  One appetizer, 2 dinners for $20.  I always end up taking leftovers home for lunch the next day.

Perkins has Kids Eat Free night every Tuesday and Saturday.  Kids eat free (off the kid menu) with an adult entree order.

Arby's is doing Wednesday freebies this summer.  This coming Wednesday is a free regular roast beef with any beverage purchase.

I don't know if there is an Old Country Buffet in your area, but they have an eClub and when you become a member you get a free meal on your Birthday. There is also valuable offers throughout the year! I have a lot of friends and family who have birthdays in June and July so I went ahead and signed them up for the eClub and there is their b-day gift!! Go to: www.buffet.com/eclub. Thanx

I'm on the mailing list for a bunch of restaurants.

Boston's sent out a $10 off $25 coupon this month

TGI Fridays hasa BYOB promotion (Bring Your Own Buddies)  ... Each "buddy" you bring in is worth $5 off... so if you have a party of 4, you get $15 off your bill.  Works for just about anyone you want to call your buddy.  Also, sign up for the "stripes" club and you'll get a free appetizer and more.  BYOB Promotion

On the Border:  free Queso when you sign up for the Border Club (in the restuarant, dunno about the Cantina Club online)


Mr Gatti's/GattiTown - If you are unsatisfied OR Satisfied with your visit, send a comment card.  I went in between lunch and dinner and was VERY upset with the buffet, not much variety, pizzas were old and had been sitting, half the games weren't on.  I sent a comment card, and received coupons for 4 free buffets and a coupon for a playcard.  I sent another comment card after re-visiting on their dime, to let them know that it was much improved and I appreciated the coupons and their desire to have us back as customers.  THAT one was rewarded with 4 buffet coupons as well.

What ever places you visit always check to see if you can join their "club" on line.  Some mail coupons, weekly, some gift you with a free birthday burger.

 We do Arbys on wenesdays too!  Love their fruit teas.

Red Robin gifts you with a birthday burger.

Quiznos will send you coupons for a buy one get one free, or dollars off your sandwich.

Chili's is also doing a 2 for $20.  It's 1/2 appetizer, 2 full size meals, and one appetizer.  It's quite a bit of food for 2 people.

My friend and I did the Chili's deal.  Our app was the endless chips and salsa. We both chose the chicken club tacos with rice and black beans and our dessert was the mini shots ( key lime pie, the cinnabon thingy and the fudgey chocolate shooter). Not  a bad price at all, considering I had enough left for lunch the next day.   It was a good deal!

If you're in or around Atlanta, La Tavola has Molto Mondays, and a HUGE plate of pasta and wine is $15. One plate is more than enough for two people, and they'll let you split it.
