Bring the entire family with you when you venture out, and let the kids eat for FREE! This is a great way to save money and enjoy some family time together! Each day of the week offers a new restaurant and new dining experience, where you can score FREE food for the kiddos. That should save you some extra money for dessert 🙂
Saving money while you dine isn’t hard. In fact, one of the easiest ways to save is to purchase discounted gift cards. Why pay full price, if you can score a gift card for 5-20% off? Raise.com is a great site, always offering up new gift cards to your favorite restaurants and food & beverage places. I save at least $20 a month by purchasing gift cards for Starbucks through this site!
Local deal sites like LivingSocial and Groupon are also great places to score some awesome deals on restaurant savings! Try a new restaurant with a Groupon, or get a great deal on your local favorite at LivingSocial.
