For the last several years, companies have generously offered freebies as a way to get new customers in the door (and perhaps spend more money with the business offering the freebie). A wise consumer may choose to take advantage of the freebie and not necessarily buy more.
If you are looking for some frugal fun on the days leading up to the 4th and on the 4th itself, check out some of these 4th of July freebies and deals:
Restaurant Freebies and Deals
Most people don’t spend the Fourth of July inside a restaurant, so several restaurants have offered some good deals to entice you to visit them.
Here are some of the best deals:
- It’s BOGO (that’s buy one, get one free) smoothies at Jamba Juice through July 7th. Use this Jamba Juice coupon.
- Spaghetti Warehouse is offering $5 off any two entrees. Head over to this Spaghetti Warehouse Facebook page and Like them for the coupon.
- Boston Market is offering 50% off any of their Family Meals on the 4th of July with this coupon. This is a great way to get the cook of the family out of the kitchen so he or she can enjoy Independence Day.
- Head over to Outback Steakhouse and say “Let Freedom Bloom!” and get a free Bloomin’ Onion.
