Dining at Denny's
So, yesterday we decided to go to Denny's because "Kids Eat Free" Monday through Thursday. I also had a 20% off Entire Check coupon that they emailed me. So we went and boy did we have a great time eating. I had the Club Sandwhich, My husband had the Double Chesseburger, Kat had the Junior Grand Slam, and Hailey had the Mac & Cheese (she always get that, everywhere!). Plus, we went ahead and got the Fudge Brownie w/Ice Cream, $2.99, for dessert, which was so good.
Once we were done, we went to go pay. Now, remember, I am still learning how to deal with coupons. Every place has their own policies about coupons. So I went to go pay and they deducted the "Kids" food, which was $6.00, but when I gave them the 20% Coupon, they said that it had to be one or the other. Bummer, had I been able to use that coupon, we would have literally saved $12.00. But, I can see how it would have to be one or the other. That is probably a loss for them if they let you do that.
So how much was our food bill? Total Due was $34.11, then they took off the kids food, then it came out to $28.11, which I thought was great. We usually don't go out to eat that much, because, of course, restaurants are expensive, but when we get paid, and there are specials like these, we can splurge a little bit here and there and still save.
Here is a little tip that I want to share with you. I learned this the hard way. When you go to Denny's, do your kids always want those cute little kids cups they sell? I know mine do. Last year, I gave into them and got them the cups. When I got the receipt, I realized that I was double charged for the drinks. When I asked them about it, they said that they charged me the cups, plus charged me to actually fill it with the drink. Now, I don't know if that is right or not, but they do it. So I say unto you, try as hard as you can not to get those cups. I know they are cute and you want to make the kids happy, but you will be paying double and the point is to save money, not double your bill. Other than that, Denny's is a great place to eat and save money.
So, if you want the kids to eat free, head over to Denny's M-T, 4p.m. to 10 p.m. and enjoy their great menu. Enjoy
