Fast food is already cheap as it is, but what if I told you that you could save even more money the next time that you went out to eat? Many people tend to skip over the savings, because they figure the food is always cheap enough. This isn’t the case! I wanted to give you some tips that you should work for just about any restaurant that you like to frequent.

#1 Get the Entertainment Book:

This is a great book to purchase each and every year. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s a book jammed packed with coupons. A high majority of them are for fast food restaurants, as well as others in your neighborhood. Many of them are buy one, get one free, as well as others.

#2 Get social with them:

The Internet is getting bigger by the second and this is where you take advantage of it. Let’s say that you love McDonald’s. What you’re going to want to do is try to connect with them. Follow them on Facebook, Twitter, as well as sign up for their email newsletter. By doing this, you’re going to get the deals delivered straight to your mailbox.

#3 Check your mailbox:

In my local area, fast food joints love to advertise in the paper. You will find on a monthly basis that these restaurants send out a full page ad packed with coupons. From Arby’s to Burger King, make sure that you keep your eyes peeled and set them aside for future use.

#4 Check your receipt:

The next time you go out to eat, save your receipt! What you’re going to find out is that if you flip it over, you can take a simple survey either via the telephone or online. Take the survey and you’re going to get a code for whatever it may be. For example, Arby’s will give you a free roast beef if you fill out the survey. Trust me, it doesn’t take that long at all!

#5 Just do a search:

Many people don’t know this but restaurants such as McDonald’s have their own coupon based websites. For example, if you go to, you can sign up with McDonald’s and get your coupons delivered straight to your inbox. Other restaurants have the same things. You can do a search for printable coupons and you’ll be amazed at what you can find!
As you can see, there are many ways on how you can save with fast food. The next time that you head out to your favorite place, be sure to try out some of these tips to see how much you can save!
