I think I like blogging about deals because there is something for everyone and there are always surprises. While clicking around for mall restaurant deals last week, I signed up for Chili’s promo that touted a free appetizer with e-mail sign-up.
Don’t get too excited about the southwest egg rolls or app of your choosing, the coupon they e-mail you is only good for free chips and queso dip. And the coupon expires 15 days after you sign up! It’s a bit of a bait-and-switch if you ask me…not even a month to use the promotion-that’s cheap on top of cheap, Chili’s.
I HOTFlashed my readers last Monday about the Outback Free Bloomin’ Mondays, which I felt was a more straightforward way of getting butts into booths. In the spirit of fairness I planned to write a post about sit-down mall restaurants to compare their loyalty programs and freebies before I unleashed my displeasure on Chili’s.
Now I’m a tad less pissy because this Monday-Thursday (3/4-3/7), Kids Eat Free at Chili’s! With a purchase of an adult entrée, anyone under 12 can enjoy a kid’s meal at no charge. It’s limited to 2 kids per adult, and more than one coupon per table is allowed. This deal is an upgrade on the less-than-impressive free appetizer!
