Food is the best. Yes, it's necessary to live but I just love food and I especially love free food. I found a list that breaks down everywhere you can get free food this month, mark these dates off on your calendar.

Sadly, some of the places that Thrillist talks about can't be found locally but I'll make the list more manageable and just focus on food we can actually get, unless you want to take a road trip.

Throughout the Year: 

  • We already mentioned how McDonalds is giving away free food with their app through the end of the year
  • Sonic every day from 2-4pm, you can grab half-price drinks and 99-cent corn dogs.
  • Dairy Queen will give a free small Blizzard if you download the DQ mobile app
  • Arby's has a free roast beef sandwich if you sign up for their newsletter
  • Brueggers Bagel will give you a coupon for a free bagel and cream cheese if you sign up for their Inner Circle club as well as coupons throughout the year.
  • Coldstone Creamery also has an email deal where you could get a BOGO free coupon on creations

August 7th: TCBY is celebrating their 37th birthday with buy-one-get-one for $0.37 on everything but cakes and pies from 3:00PM-7:00PM.

August 8th: National Custard Day at BurgerFi, you can get a free small custard, no purchase necessary, just mention the deal at the counter.

August 16th: National Rum Day at Bonefish Grill is offering  a Coral Reef Punch, made with Bacardi Maestro Rum, Malibu Coconut Rum, passion fruit, house-made vanilla bean simple syrup, bitters, and orange and pineapple juice.

Gosh, I love free (or even almost free) food. Any that you know of that I missed for the month of August, comment here so I can add it!
