Here’s a deal you can toast, literally: For a limited time, Quiznos is offering a Toasty Deal of the Day for hungry bargain hunters. The deal is only available for its 8-inch sub. For $5, get one of its tasty, toasty subs for lunch or dinner. Here’s the weekly line-up: Monday – Spicy Monterey; Tuesday – Turkey Ranch & Swiss; Wednesday – Baja Chicken; Thursday – Ultimate Turkey Club; Friday – Classic Italian; and Saturday & Sunday – Honey Bacon Club. The discount is not valid with any coupon or other offer. It’s a decent deal, given the sandwiches are normally about $7 to $8.

This freebie will have you squealing with delight. Drop by Maggie Smith’s Irish Pub every Friday for a community pig roast starting at 7 p.m. Enjoy a beer or two (you have to pay for your drinks) while grubbing on a FREE plate of pork smothered in bbq sauce. Families, friends, and the entire neighborhood is welcome. Get together and celebrate the best day of the week while soaking in the summer rays. 6631 S. Peoria St., Englewood.
Layer on the savings on National Lasagna Day. July 29th is National Lasagna Day, but BRIO Tuscan Grille is celebrating early. On Thursday, July 27, the Italian restaurant will celebrate with 50% off its Mama’s Lasagna Bolognese. For lunch, customers can order Mama’s Lasagna Bolognese & Insalata, featuring a half portion of the popular dish paired with a salad. For dinner, only the full-size portion will be available. (A full-size portion can also be ordered at lunch.) There are two locations — Cherry Creek Mall in Denver and Park Meadows in Lone Tree. Reservations are strongly suggested and can be made online at www.BrioItalian.com.
No need to whine ever, when it comes to saving money. Romano’s Macaroni Grill is making Thursday the day to dine out for an Italian lunch or dinner. Every Thursday, the restaurant offers half-priced bottle of wines at participating locations all day — for a limited time. The offer does not apply to glasses — just bottles. (I’m not a wine drinker, so I have no idea what else to add without sounding silly. I know there’s red and white…that’s it!) If you love the restaurant, sign-up for its e-mail club for lots of members-only promo and discounts, as well as be the first to hear about new dishes — click here. (As always, please don’t drink and drive.)
If you need another reason to cheer on our Colorado Rockies, Taco Bell is again offering its popular taco promo this season — through October 1. The day following a game in which the Rockies score 7 runs or more (win or lose), score 4 tacos for $2 (reg. $1.29 x 4 = $5.16) between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. at participating locations. Limit one special per person.
A family of four could eat dinner for under $10 and probably still have a few tacos left over. (MHOTC Tip: The promo time overlaps for one hour from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. with the fast-food chain’s daily Happier Hour promo, which runs from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. During those hours, get a medium drink or regular Freeze for $1, too.)
Now that’s savings we can go to bat for anytime! Go, Rockies!
You can top this deal with pepperoni, sausage, tomatoes, green peppers, onions and more. Through Sunday, July 23, Pizza Hut is offering 50% off menu-priced pizzas at participating locations — any size, any toppings. The offer is only available online. However, choose pick-up rather than delivery, to save on delivery fees. (It never makes sense to get a deal and, then, pay extra in fees, right?) With no limit, it’s the perfect excuse for a pizza party at the office or home. The promo is not valid with any other discounts.
Who says all freebies are just for the two-legged? Here’s a freebie Fido will definitely like (and lick), during the “dog days” of summer: Through July 31, every dog (with their pet parent in tow) can get a FREE PawBender at Good Times Burgers & Frozen Custard. What is a PawBender? The doggone good treat is a little pup-sized cup filled with vanilla custard, doggie biscuits and peanut butter. (What dog doesn’t love peanut butter?) The cool freebie is sure to get tails waggin’…and leave a few messy snouts! To get the treat, your furry family member must be present. Limit one treat per dog. Woof!
Dining out can be very expensive, especially with the whole family. That’s why frugal families stretch their dollars by eating at restaurants where kids eat FREE or at a discount. Recently, we spent hours (and hours) updating our “Kids Eat FREE” page for you, our dear readers. (You’re welcome!) You can review our updated Kids Eat FREE page here.
However, we still highly encourage you to check first, before loading up the kids — as offers often change. If you’re in doubt about any requirements or restrictions, ask first before ordering. Or, even better yet, call ahead. An unexpected large tab can be quite frustrating for parents, so don’t be shy about asking questions.
We’ve also included a list of the basic guidelines, so you’re better prepared to navigate the menu of offers. If you know of a KEF promo we missed, send us an e-mail at email@example.com.
Who doesn’t love McDonald’s fries? We love ’em, especially when they’re piping hot, fresh and FREE. Fry fans can get FREE medium fries with any purchase on Fridays via the McDonald’s app. The offer is valid for 24 hours on Fridays at participating locations, through September 29. (Download and registration is required.) When paying, open the offer on the app (under “Deals”) and scan the code at the register. For more information on the app, including how to download it, click here.
We never like to pay full price, when dining out. As a fellow bargain hunter, we’re guessing you don’t like to either. If you see us dining out, whether it’s a fast-food joint or fancy restaurant, you can bet we have a coupon or are taking advantage of a promo…seriously. Always ready to help you save money, we created a Food & Drink Daily Specials page to help you navigate the dining landscape for savings.
Just so you know, we’ve opted not to include Happy Hour specials because there are just too many. (Plus, doesn’t every place offer a Happy Hour promo anyway, right? Just ask!) It’s a full plate, so get your knife and fork ready to eat up the savings — click here to review the page.
We’re hungry for more deals to add to the list, so, if your favorite dining spot has a lunch or dinner special, let us know. (Again, please do not send Happy Hour specials. Otherwise, we’d go crazy trying to list all of them.) Eat up!
Need to make your life sweeter? FREE Pie Wednesday is still on at Village Inn at participating locations. Every Wednesday, stop by from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. for a FREE slice of any classic fruit or featured pie with any dine-in purchase. One slice per person. The offer is not valid with any other promotion or discount.
This deal is for those who like grilled hot dogs, but don’t want to pull out the grill. Burger King is offering its Classic Grilled Dog for 79¢ (reg. $1.99) — through July 31. There is no limit, so the whole family can take advantage of the bargain dogs at participating locations.
This promo is sure to “float your boat”! For a limited time, A&W Restaurants are pouring any size root beer float for just $2 at participating locations. The best value is a large, which regularly sells for $3.69 at most locations. Did you know its world-famous root beer is made with real cane sugar? Let’s hope the promo runs all summer long. For locations, click here.
