I know people who won’t use a coupon for a restaurant because it’s “embarrassing” or seems “cheap”. Unless you are trying to impress your new date, don’t hold back. Restaurants put these out to DRAW your business, so use them! I am a Flowing Tide “buy one entree get one entree free” junkie. If I don’t have a coupon, I will still have my hankering for sweet potato fries and end up heading there anyway. There are convenient locations to my home and work so you don’t have to ask me twice! The coupons are a win-win. Here are some tips when couponing:
- Read the small print. Sometimes they are only good Monday-Friday or for certain meals, certain locations and watch for the expiration date.
- Present the coupon when you order. This will give the server a chance credit your bill properly and to let you know of any issues up front so there aren’t any problems when it is time to pay.
- Tip on the amount of the bill it would have been if you had paid full price. They still did their job for the free dish.
- Keep them in your car so they are right at your fingertips when the hunger pangs strike!
