Restaurant companies have more or less realized the importance of gaining a fast track and un-guarded access to their customers by means of direct email and pop-up notifications on customer smartphones, making them scramble for a piece of this valuable piece of advertising real estate – customer smartphones and computers.
This is the reason they’ve been luring us customers with attractive deals and freebies (and not to mention generous birthday freebies) just by signing up in exchange for our personal information and direct access to our screens. If you’re one who’s likely to sign up and don’t mind giving up a bit of your privacy, then why not take advantage of them too, by signing up to those who give the most freebies and offers, right?
We have compiled most major U.S. restaurants who will give you awesome discounts. deals, and welcome freebies just by downloading their apps or subscribing to their email newsletters – some require purchase, some give BOGO deals and discounts, and then there are some who give away free food just like that.
