For the best value, order a free appetizer for your Outback No Rules Day freebie.

To get the most value out of your Outback No Rules Day freebie, you should order either the Bloomin’ Fried Onion, the Nashville Hot Wings, or the Kookaburra Wings. Each of these appetizers regularly costs $15.49, and they’ll get you the most value on No Rules Day.

Not everyone at your table will get their own free appetizer or dessert, though; there’s a one-discount-per-table rule.
