We all love a great pancake my preference for the local mom n pop dinners but once in a while you can’t miss a campaign to do good for others and self. Mark you calendars for 2011 National Pancake Day as IHOP has an offer you can’t miss. Started in 2006 asking for donations to the Children’s Miracle Network in return for free flapjacks. They have since raised $5.35 million towards Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities. Last years take was just over $2 million and this years goal is set at $2.5 million but here is better news for you writers out there. Submit your story for “Stacks for Good Acts” and you can possible win free pancakes for a year from IHOP now how sweet is that! National Pancake Day is March 1, 2011 and the promotion for free flapjacks for donation promotion runs from 7:00 am to 10:00 am. I recommend joining meet-up groups, church groups, and volunteer clubs for an unofficial breakfast club meet and greet to keep the stack of good acts flowing. I hope to see you all there incase of changes on time offerings check their website and submit your story for a chance of free pancakes for a year at http://www.ihoppancakeday.com/
Now don’t worry if you can’t make the date at least there are other freebies I’ve listed to take advantage of and the ones that will be expiring soon I’ve include dates that are known at the bottom under “Hurry” as they expire February 2011. Sorry, I did not list the Super Bowl freebies earlier but the windows to access them are short I’ve spent too much time enjoying today free eats. I just hope the game goes into overtime for my free large pizza from Papa John’s. My take in savings 2011 Super Bowl Sunday has come to $57.14 for one person more if we have overtime. Oh, quick tip don’t register you mobile number on these e-mail listings so fast some charge monthly rates for text service. Some offers don’t permit take out or doggie bags a bummer as it saves even more if you freeze for meals later in the week or lunch the next day. If you have multiple e-mail accounts set one up for these offers my savings dinning out for 2010 $1,216.53 not bad right!
It pays to eat out for cheap but don’t submit coupons or deals till after you placed your order or before requesting the bill unless otherwise stated, why you sometimes get crappy service, short changed on the meal and have the restaurant chains corporate 1-800 number to push these offers. As most chain establishments unless stated otherwise must honor them or it costs them more legally in false advertisement a perk in further free eats or substitutions but you didn’t hear it from me ‘- wink, wink!
Check Out These Other Restaurant Offers on the Web:
**Uno’s ‘- The secret is out join their insiders club for dinning coupons and if your in the military well register as they support service members with special offers that includes active and retired! Uno’s gets my gold star for supporting our military service members and pending management I’ve seen some also extend special offers to active duty police, fire and EMT. This practice is seldom seen outside mom-n-pop or independent restaurant establishment and highly commendable in my book; they have my business indefinitely as I feel safer dinning with local rescue and our nation’s securing forces!
