With the economy gone bad, going out for restaurant meals has become a luxury many Americans have relinquished. With job losses and housing foreclosures at record high, obtaining enough food to eat is a challenge for many that doesn’t leave room for restaurant excursions. With a bit of searching, you can find free food in this bad economy.
Free IHOP Short Stack of Pancakes
Where can you find free food in the bad economy? Start with the International House of Pancakes. Tomorrow only the International House of Pancakes is offering free short stacks of pancakes to visitors to its restaurants from 7 am to 10 pm. The IHOP free pancake promotion aims to draw attention – and contributions- to the Children’s Miracle Network. But the free pancakes are available to anyone, no questions asked.
Free Quiznos Sub Sandwich
Quiznos is offering one free small Quiznos sub sandwich coupon to its website visitors who register for its Quiznos Q-Club. There is no purchase obligation with Q-Club membership and members can opt out at any time. So far, Quiznos has given away more than 95,000 free sub coupons.
Free Small Spaghetti Dinner at Fazoli’s
The Fazoli’s Italian restaurant chain has started a revolution in response to the bad economy and is offering different free food coupons each week. By signing up this week, “revolutionaries” can receive a free spaghetti dinner. Fazoli’s operates 260 restaurants in 28 states.
Free Noodle Meal at Noodles and Co. and Other Free Birthday Meal Offers
Unlike IHOP, Quiznos and Fazoli’s, Noodles and Co. makes you wait for your birthday to cash in on its free food offer. Sign up for Noodles and Co.’s newsletter and in time for your birthday, you’ll receive a coupon for a free Noodles and Co. noodle dish.
