Who says there's no such thing as a free lunch? There are countless ways to get a free dinner, and it can be easy if you plan ahead. The following tips and resources will help you find a free dinner.
One of the easiest ways to find deals is by joining groups, forums and online communities where members post freebies and deals. Go to slickdeals or CouponMom and read the posts. Thousands of members post freebies every day.
Read blogs, such as Money Saving Mom, Sisterly Savings, Coupon Cravings and Centsible Sawyer. These blogs provide information about products and deals and in-the-know information about free deals.
Join Twitter. Using the search feature, search for the word "free." Not only will you find free items, but you will find websites and blogs that can keep you informed of freebies as they are announced.
Join restaurant and fast food loyalty programs. Many sandwich shops have punch cards where you earn points for each purchase. When the card is full, you get a free meal.
You can eat free on your birthday, or the meal is usually really cheap. Also, making the offer even better, you can take a date, spouse or child to eat free on their birthday. Google "Birthday Freebies" and you will find all kinds of information about birthday clubs and deals.
Look in the Sunday paper ads and coupon inserts. Many restaurants offer a buy one, get one deals on meals. Restaurants that do this include IHOP, Denny's, Boston Market, and other family-style restaurants.
