There’s really no good reason to ever pay full price to eat out. Not only do we have lots of tips about how to save at restaurants, but there are countless restaurant coupons available.

We’ve eaten a lot of food to compile this list (not sorry), and you now get to browse this buffet of dining savings.

Keep in mind, at most restaurants, you can only use one discount at a time. That’s why we love pointing people to discount gift cards and vouchers to save 40% off. More on that later.

Let’s get you some restaurant coupons. (Note: offers may vary according to location.)

 

Download apps to get the most restaurant coupons.

The easiest way to find restaurant coupons is in a restaurant’s app.

 

Check your receipt; restaurants want to give you coupons and freebies in exchange for your feedback.

One of our favorite ways to get restaurant coupons is by taking surveys on receipts at various restaurants, such as Burger King, IHOP, McDonald’s, Tropical Smoothie Cafe, and Subway.

We’ve got a full list of restaurants that’ll reward you for giving them feedback, where we tell you all about the freebies you can get, and how to get them.

 

Get restaurant coupons when you sign up for email lists.

Some restaurants don’t even have an app, so if you want to get their best coupons, you’re going to need to sign up to receive their promotional emails. (Plenty of restaurants have both an app and email lists, so there will be duplicates.) Here are restaurants that want your email address:

Check your favorite restaurant’s social media accounts, too; sometimes they’ll post restaurant coupons on social media.

 

 

Get more restaurant coupons when you join various loyalty programs.

Loyalty programs are another great way to get high-value restaurant coupons. Many restaurants give you a freebie or some kind of dollar-off coupon just for signing up, plus restaurant coupons on or around your birthday.

We have a comprehensive list of our favorite restaurant loyalty programs, but here are some of the restaurants offering coupons to their most loyal customers:

 

Countless restaurant coupons are available on your birthday.

One of the best ways to celebrate is with restaurant coupons and freebies on your birthday. We have a massive list of more than 100 places that will give you freebies on your birthday, and most of those are restaurants, including:

  • Buy a $5 voucher for $2
  • Buy $10 for $4

Food delivery services offer restaurant coupons.

DoorDash, Grubhub, and Uber Eats all have their own partner restaurants that offer specials. You can get free delivery and/or discounted food for first-time orders, repeat orders, and as part of rotating promotions.
