While out running errands with Big Sister E last weekend, we stopped off for a quick bite to eat in between stores. After all, you have to keep your energy up to ensure productive shopping, right?
And although heading in to Subway was a wise choice (as both she and I happily ate our entire subs and she raved about how much she loved it), I couldn't help but think that I would have enjoyed lunch a little more had I used a coupon.
How was I even allowed out of my house without one? What was I thinking?
Really, there's just no excuse for paying full price at restaurants these days when there are discounts so readily available. And on days like this when I wasn't necessarily planning on stopping and didn't have the foresight to look through a flier to find a coupon to clip, I could have still easily saved myself some money with the National Advantage Discount Restaurant Coupon Card.
Good for use at participating locations all across the country, a National Advantage Coupon Card is a credit card-sized, green way to save money at dozens of your favorite locations. Simply hand it to your server or cashier before you order and you're ready to save!
Ordering Papa John's pizza for dinner tonight? Mmmm! With the Discount Restaurant Card, instead of getting just one pizza, you'll get a second one free! Similarly, just present this card at Arby's and instead of one of their iconic Roast Beef Sandwiches, you'll receive two!
As for Big Sister E and I, with this Coupon Card I could have received a free 6" sub sandwich when buying a 6" sub, a bag of chips and a medium drink when we were at Subway. We're talking money-saving, People!
But, wait! As well as being environmentally-friendly and lessening the number of paper coupons needed, the Discount Restaurant Coupon Card also has the advantage over traditional coupons in that it can be used again and again. Considering that it doesn't expire until December 31, 2015, just think of all of the free pizza, sandwiches, burgers, cookies, and more that you could be saving money on!
As many chain restaurants are franchised, it is up to each individual manager if they would like to accept or decline this card, so be sure to check with your local location when you go to use your card. However, as it retails for only $20, it will only take using it a time or two before it has fully paid for itself... and then you still have more than four years to save, save, save!
When it comes to eating out, the time-saving convenience sometimes just can't be beat. Whether to take a night off from cooking dinner or just as a quick meal for breakfast or lunch, restaurants are a part of our lives that are here to stay... but the costs can add up quickly. The National Advantage Card is a simple solution that can save you time and money when all you have to do is pull it out of your wallet when ordering your food.
