Kids Eat for Free with SnipSnap

I blog about how two can dine for the price of one (or less) with SnipSnap all the time. I love using mobileScreen Shot 2013-03-12 at 1.04.51 PM coupons to eat free chocolate mousse cake and sip free sangria. But if you’ve got kiddos to feed, you’re probably looking for some fabulous “kids eat free” deals to redeem at your favorite restaurant, too. Here’s a good rule of thumb: when eating out with kids, you should never, ever pay for their food. ThScreen Shot 2013-03-12 at 1.05.25 PMere are enough small and large chain restaurants that offer free kids meal deals (with the purchase of one or more adult entrees) that it’s easy to find an option around you. If you used to kick yourself whenever you paid the bill for that full-fledged, full spread breakfast your child demanded but then hardly touched (knowing all along you could have used a coupon you left at home) then get ready to give up feeling guilty for eating out.

It’s easy to find free kids meal coupons in the SnipSnap app. I’m snipping deals frequently and adding them to my Screen Shot 2013-03-12 at 1.05.38 PMKids and Restaurants coupon bundles. If you want to search the SnipSnap database for offers yourself, just type in the name of a restaurant or simply “kids” in the search bar. Want a taste of what’s in the app now? Since it’s Tuesday, I’m most excited about this Uno coupon that lets you order one free kids meal for each adult entree you purchase – every single Tuesday. I’ve also snipped some awesome deals for Denny’s, Long John Silvers, Olive Garden and more. Remember: paying for kids meals is old school. Start SnipSnapping kids meal coupons and create your own Eating out with Kids bundle, so you’ll never pay for mini meals again.
