TGIF Discounts

TGIF, the chain restaurant with the bright red and white stripes, has a couple of deals going on right now.  First, they've put together a new "frequent diner" club called Give Me More Stripes.  If you sign up for the club online, you get a free appetizer coupon.  The link is located here.  The club itself offers the benefit of $8 in free food for every $100 spent.  It would take me several years to spend $100 at Fridays, but if you are already going there anyway, it makes sense to join.  I'll probably join just for the free appetizer.

Also, Fridays has issued an unusual, unlimited use Buy One Entree, Get One Free coupon.  The instructions say to share it with your friends, and it can be used an unlimited number of times until March 1st.

Lastly, if you are in Fridays today, you can enter their Over/Under game for the "big game" tomorrow.  (It seems they are pretending that they can't call it by its proper name.)  You have the chance to win either a free cheesecake or a free slush, depending on if you properly guess whether the total score of the game will be over or under 44 points.

While I'm not a big fan of eating out regularly, there are occasions that make restaurants a good or fun choice.  If you're going to go out, you might as well do it as frugally as possible!
