How to save while eating out

14 Aug

Eat lunch instead of dinner

Prices are cheaper during lunch than at dinner.

Order water

Drinks can be expensive. Cut costs when dining out by skipping the drinks.

Use coupons or deals from places like restaurant.com

You can find coupons everywhere, in the newspaper, following places on Facebook, from Groupon, etc.

Go to restaurants that offer free (or cheap) kid’s nights

Many restaurants offer kids eat free nights. For a list of local restaurants click here.

Share a meal

We all know portions are incredibly large at most places so why not share a meal to save a few dollars.

Go on nights when specials are offered

Usually during the week restaurants have specials they promote to get more people eating out at their place.

Eat out earlier

Another time that restaurants promote specials is earlier in the evening. Check for happy hour appetizer/tapas promotions.

 

One last place to look for specials is eatfreeonyourbirthday.com
