Is there really such a thing as a free lunch? It has been said that yes you can find a truly free lunch, and sometimes even a free dinner. But at what cost?, accomplished after sitting through a long sales presentation, a grueling meeting or worse, a wedding reception?
No, were talking a REAL free lunch, one that requires nothing more than an e-mail address or a mailing address for them to send the free restaurant meal coupon.
Many restaurants have an e-mail newsletter or e-club that provides for a free menu item of some kind as a thank you, and many send you a special free menu offer each year around your birthday and your anniversary or special event date.
What's nice about these offers is that you know that they won't be overflowing your inbox. I have signed up for over 130 different free restaurant offers and the most heavily I receive is from T.G.I. Fridays Restaurant, which usually only amounts to once a month. The others I hear from on my anniversary, and my birthday or birth month.
I've had everything from free pizza, free tacos, free cheesecake and appetizers to a new Japanese Spicy Beef Ramen Noodle dish from Pei Wei Restaurants that I'm going to go redeem right now.
Websites have filled the niche by providing lists of restaurant deals. The Zorkler coupon website found by clicking here lists new free restaurant meal offers as they are released, many of them still appeared to be live as of the writing of this article.
Why do restaurants run these promotions? Many of the coupons won't be redeemed, and of those that are it's common for the birthday boy or girl to bring along a friend resulting in a sale for the restaurant. And of course they're hoping that you add an appetizer or a few drinks to your tab. Of course, nothing in a majority of the offers require you to purchase anything.
Check out what's available, you might be surprised at how many free restaurant meal deals there are out there.
