Restaurant food is always served best with a side of savings. Reports say many Americans are struggling with their food budget, but they are still spending as much as a third of that on eating out. Lindsey Granger has a few apps to make your stomach AND your wallet fuller.
The app allows you to conveniently make reservations at most restaurants. Each time you reserve a table, you rack up points for a $20 gift card at any OpenTable-affiliated restaurant. Every time you hit 2000 points, you get rewarded! Several restaurants have bonus point specials, where you can earn up to 1000 points in one sitting.
Whenever you spend money at Starbucks, you keep the rewards coming. According to a Washington Post poll, Starbucks is the most popular coffee chain in the U.S., so why not rack up the stars while you sip? "Stars" are reward points that accumulate for drinks on the house!
You will also get free treats on your birthday. And if that’s not enough, the biggest reason why you want to place mobile orders is to of course skip the line.
3. The Chili’s App
Now with the Chili’s app, just tap and avoid waiting in line. And combos start at just $6! The popular chain is already known for its bottomless chip and salsa and cheap entrees. But now each time you place a to-go order or reserve a table at the restaurant through the app, you earn “Plenti Points" — which you can redeem for almost anything!
It’s no question that a big chunk of Americans’ budget is going towards eating out, but now these apps will help you go out without going broke.
