The Best Ways to Save Money When Dining Out


By

Being able to go out to eat is a luxury that everyone loves to do and deserves, yet so many people refrain from going because of the price tag involved. Here are some ways you can dine out without hurting your wallet.
Coupons
When you are purchasing anything, coupons are the easiest and quickest way to save money on whatever you are buying. Look online and see if there are any printable coupons for nearby restaurants, or simply give your favorite restaurant a call and ask about any discounts or coupons they have available.
Special Deals
Some restaurants offer a wide variety of special deals to help save you money. Some businesses allow you to sign up your birthday or anniversary date and they will give your special deals on that day. All it takes is asking around to see what's available to help you save money in any way possible.
Social Media
Social media seems to be the hype surrounding businesses in this day and age. A lot of businesses have a social media account that you can follow or like that allows you to see the latest and greatest deals and discounts. A lot of the time companies will often post coupons to their loyal followers as well. By keeping up with your favorite companies, you are able to see the latest and greatest that is being offered.
Smart Phone Apps
There are a variety of different apps that allow you to see coupons and discounts for an array of different businesses, including restaurants. Here are some of my favorite apps that allow you to do just that:
Dining Deals
Fast Food Deals and Coupons
Black Board Eats
ScoutMob
FourSquare

Go Out to Eat Off-Hours
If you dine out on a Friday night at 7:00pm, not only are you going to have to fight the crowd, your also going to have to pay dinner prices. When you dine out off-hours, you are going when you don't have to worry about having to wait an hour for your food, as well as being able to pay less at the same time.
Surveys
A lot of companies are now allowing people to review their experience with their business and then earn some credit towards the company in return. This is an easy thing to do, only takes a couple of minutes, and you earn free money in the process.
