Free Chips and Queso at Chili’s (thanks Amy!)


Smokey Bones, Buy $25 in Gift Cards while you are dining in get another $15 gift card FREE (pair this with Kids eat free on Monday nights for even more savings!)

If you purchase online you will get a free $10 giftcard.

(thanks Groceries4free!)


Outback Steakhouse is offering the same idea, buy $100 in gift cards and another get $20 gift card.

Know of any other restaurant deals?

      Carraba’s also has buy $100 in gift cards and get a $20 gift card free

      • Tracee

        Also remembered that The Melting Pot has a deal- make a $10 donation to St. Jude’s (at their restaurant), 100% of the donation goes to St. Judes and then you get a $20 gift card for the melting pot (it’s $20 off a $50 purchase).

      Do you know about the website restaurant.com? You can get dining certificates at great prices. Check it out!

    • Angela

      Applebee’s is also doing something similar. You get a $10 gift card when you buy $50 in gift cards.

    • pharmSCgirl

      I think O’Charley’s usually does something similar. Maybe a $5 gift card with the purchase of a $25 gift card. Not exactly sure, but I think I remember seeing that the other night.

      Thanks for sharing about Chili’s. I absolutely love that place!

    • FYI- Smokey Bones doesn’t give you a $15 gift card. If you are eating in when you purchase your $25 giftcard you’ll get $5 off your meal and a $10 coupon valid Jan.1st through the end of February. Just want to clarify.
