Veteran’s Day (November 11th) is not only a time you and I take a moment and honor those who served, area restaurants and retailers are too, with free meals and deals. Check out the list, and make sure you read all details and call ahead for participation. Most offers require valid military ID and are for past and current members. There are so many offers, you could eat free for breakfast, lunch and dinner…dessert and get a snack too!
Applebees: A special menu of fiesta lime chicken, bacon cheddar cheeseburgers, sirloin, chicken tenders, pasta, shrimp and salad are available to choose from.
Chili's: Their menu include turkey sandwiches, pizza, or lunch combos during lunch hours.
Denny’s: All –You-Can-Eat pancakes are available from 6am to 2pm.
Einstein Bagels: A free bagel and “shmear” of cream cheese is available from 5:30am to 5pm.
IKEA: A free meal of a sandwich, hot dish, or entrée salad is available at IKEA from Saturday-Monday. This is a value of $9.99.
Krispy Kreme: Not only do you get a free donut, but you’ll also get a free small coffee on Veteran’s Day.
Little Caesars: A free order of Crazy Bread is available at the pizza chain. (This is their equivalent of buttery, garlicky breadsticks!)
Menchie’s: A free frozen yogurt is available at participating stores.
McCormick & Schmick’s: Thanks to our assignment editor, Annie for the heads up on this one. M&S is offering up a special menu, which in my opinion, is by far the most extensive offering for a Veteran’s Day menu I’ve seen in my years of doing Dion’s Daily Deals. This includes Salmon Rigatoni, Cedar Plank Salmon, Cashew Crusted Tilapia, Beef Medalions and a whole lot more. NOTE: This deal is good for SUNDAY, November 10th.
Outback: No free steaks here, but you can get a free snack of a Bloomin’ Onion and a drink. Call your location for details.
Red Robin: The offer from Red Robin, includes a free Red’s Tavern Double burger and Bottomless Steak Fries. (This is a JUMBO burger, folks, with 2 patties, according to the press release)
Note: There are SO many more restaurants out there, but this is the shortened list of restaurants I think offer especially good values. Sometimes there is purchase required at other places, like Hooters…so I just went ahead and listed the ones which require no purchase. I also highly suggest searching, or calling your favorite restaurant ahead of time to see if they’ve got anything going.
Lipstick Sample: Mary Kay and Glamour Magazine have a freebie deal for a sample of True Dimensions Lipstick when you fill out a very short form.
Maxi Pads: The Kotex sample site is still giving away sample packs of their products here: you’ll notice there are only pads packs available, but keep checking back, since they seem to replenish every so often.
Bridal Magazine: A full year’s subscription to Brides Magazine is available at the Rewards Gold website here: You do need to fill out a short form for this deal, but you can always say no to any offers you don’t want to participate in.
As with all of my Dion’s Daily Deals, these offers go quickly, so act fast. They’re also subject to change at any time. If you miss out, please don’t fret—because after years, upon years of finding freebies, I’m confident there will be more down the road for your to redeem. Have a fantastic weekend and see you on TV!
