Easy Wasys to Save Money at Restaurants
Whether you are going out to dinner locally or you are on
vacation and dining out, we all love to save a few dollars on our meals by
getting free stuff. As soon as I became
a “Senior Citizen” I began exploring ways to save a few dollars on restaurant
meals. Here are a few easy ways we all can do
I love that word!
Save Money at Restaurants by Asking for a Discount:
Many restaurants offer senior discounts although they
might not advertise that fact.
Therefore, the best advice I can offer is for you to speak up by asking
the restaurant directly. If you want to
call ahead of your visit to find out you certainly can do that. If you plan on dining out whether a particular
restaurants offers a discount or not then wait until you get there to ask. Asking is free!
Save Money at Restaurants by Joining E-Clubs:
Here is another popular way to save money while dining
out. Many restaurants offer membership to
their e-clubs. All you have to do is go
to the website of a restaurant and check it out. If they do have an e-club, just sign up and
start the benefits rolling your way.
To help you out in this I am providing a link to a
website that has done all the hard work.
They have an alphabetical listing of *restaurants that offer e-clubs*. Just scroll through and find your
favorites or any you would like to try.
Click on the link to the restaurant of your choice and follow the
instructions to sign up. The more you
sign up with the more money you will save!
Save Money at Restaurants by Joining their Birthday
The birthday clubs are something you can sign up your
whole family for. Example: My husband and I both are signed up with
IHOP’s Birthday Club and we each get a free short stack on our special day. (Although
IHOP isn’t on the attached list, you can go to their website and sign up for
their birthday club.) You usually get an e-mail from the restaurant telling you
how to proceed. Be sure to take the e-mails
to the restaurants with you if so stated in their message.
