Almost every restaurant has an e-club these days… but if you’re a member of, well, just about all of them like I am, you know that some offer some so-so deals and others offer truly amazing offers!
Here’s my top 5 list of restaurant e-clubs that send out awesome members-only offers. I can’t share the offers on here because they are specific to my email address or have a one-time use barcode, so you’ll want to sign up to make sure you start receiving these offers yourself!
1. Red Robin
Not only do they send you a free burger on signup and a free burger on your birthday, they also send out valuable coupons for new promotions or sometimes even off your total bill! I’ve received email-exclusive coupons for $3 off a purchase of $10 or more, and for $2 off their Artic Cod Fish N Chips special.
2. Noodles and Company
Can you say buy one get one free? They send out these awesome emails at random – sometimes it’s for a snow day, sometimes it’s for a holiday, and just this week I got one for the North Academy location only: a “road construction” special coupon!
3. Qdoba Mexican Grill
I’m a Qdoba girl – after all, you know I think I can make Chipotle better than Chipotle itself. ;) They often send out buy-one-get-one free coupons via email – and again, these are email exclusive offers! Sign up for the Qdoba Burrito Enthusiasts e-club to make sure you don’t miss out.
You’ll also want to make sure to become a fan of Denver Metro Qdobas on Facebook – it includes Colorado Springs locations, and every week they run trivia questions for free food! You’ll need to make sure you have a Qdoba Card so you can give them your number if you win free food. You can pick one up in store.
4. Buffalo Wild Wings
I got all excited when I got an email about 50¢ wings from Buffalo Wild Wings recently… until I realized it was for email subscribers only and the email was required for redemption. An awesome deal, but in order for you to take advantage of their deals, you’ll need to join the Buffalo Circle. (Hint: click on the tree house to get to the e-club sign up page – I can’t link directly.)
5. Pei Wei
OK, so they don’t send out coupons very often – but their food is so awesome that it’s worth mentioning that they sometimes send out coupons via email. I think we got one for buy-one-get-one-free on Mother’s Day last year. So, go join the Pei Wei e-club so when they do send out a coupon, you’re on the list!
So this is really a Top 6 list… but Fazoli’s sends out email-only coupons so often I couldn’t not mention them even if it’s not my favorite place to eat. Seems like I get a Fazoli’s email coupon about once every two weeks, so if you eat there often, you’ll want to make sure you’ve joined their e-family!
That’s my top 5 – er, 6! I’ll be sharing what I think are the Top 5 Restaurant E-Club Welcome Gifts next week – stay tuned! In the meantime, you can find a ton of restaurant e-club deals to sign up for.
