In case you need two food holidays to celebrate waffles every year, there’s an International Waffle Day and a National Waffle Day.
The whole planet recognizes the human achievement that is the waffle on March 25, while America pays tribute on Aug. 24.
Although there are lots of deals on Aug. 24, we’ve got a roundup of money-saving ideas that will help you get cheap waffles on International Waffle Day (and beyond).
Get up to 86% off an IHOP waffle order with MyHop.
When you sign up for IHOP’s rewards program, MyHOP, you get a coupon for free pancakes that you can reuse for two weeks. But instead of getting pancakes, you want waffles — so tell your server and they’ll apply the coupon to your bill, taking $4.99 off the total.
Since waffles range between $5.79 – $7 at IHOP, that’s a big discount. We’ve got plenty more IHOP hacks where those came from.
Order the Belgian Waffle Slam for the best deal on waffles at Denny’s.
The Everyday Value Slam really is the best value on the Denny’s menu. Get a waffle, 2 eggs, 2 bacon strips, and 2 sausage links for just $10.29 — which is 29% cheaper than buying the items separately for $14.37.
And if you’re not yet part of Denny’s Rewards, get on that — you’ll get 20% off your next order once you sign up. That would make the Belgian Waffle Slam just $8.23! We’ll show you even more Denny’s savings secrets.
Make non-traditional meals in your waffle maker.
Did you know your waffle maker isn’t just for solidifying batter? We’ve made mac and cheese, pizza pockets, cinnamon rolls, grilled cheese, quesadillas, and more with a waffle maker.
The cheapest waffle combo is at Village Inn.
If you’re looking to get a Belgian waffle with a supporting cast of 1 egg made to order and 2 bacon strips or sausage links, look to see if you have The Village Inn near you.
The price of the Belgian Waffle Combo is $9.19, which is cheaper than the $10.29 Denny’s price (although you do get bacon AND sausage there).
Sign up for Arby’s emails to get a free waffle fry with purchase.
So, technically, you get a free small curly fry and small drink with purchase of an Arby’s Signature Sandwich when you sign up for Arby’s emails (and show the cashier your welcome email). But since curly fries and sweet potato waffle fries have the exact same price, you’ll easily be able to convince them to make the swap.
Use rewards points to get free waffle fries at Chick-fil-A.
And if you are a Chick-fil-A One rewards program member, you can get them for free with 300 points. (Members earn 10 points for every $1 spent, so that freebie comes after a $30 spend.) That’s just the beginning of how you can save money at Chick-fil-A.
