This Sunday, May 10, we’re all gonna celebrate Mother’s Day while quarantining, and that’s ok! I’ve found the best Mother’s Day freebies and deals you can take advantage of from the safety of your home.
I’m talking free desserts for all the moms out there to gift card deals and family bundle orders at your favorite chains nationwide.
As a reminder, some of these restaurants are re-opening their doors to the public again for the first time — but with limited seating — so there’s likely to be long wait times. If you want to celebrate this Sunday without a hitch, pre-order your food (grab it curbside or have it delivered) and enjoy it from the comfort of your home.
Oh, and take a second to download the KCL app — it’ll show you even more ways you can save everyday.
