Because what's scarier than paying for food?
Free Doritos Loco Taco from Taco Bell on October 28
Free Fries from Steak 'n Shake
No purchase necessary! You can roll up to the drive through, grab some fries, and roll out.
Five Jr. Frostys from Wendy's for $1
Technically not free, but close enough!
Wendy's is selling coupon books for $1 that offer 5 coupons for free Junior Frostys. As a nice bonus, $.85 of that gets donated to help children in foster homes get adopted. You must get the coupon books (in store or pickup via the mobile app) by October 31, but the coupons are valid through December 31.
Get $5 Amazon credit by using Amazon Cash
Amazon Cash is a service that allows you to pay with your phone at partner stores, without needing any kind of credit/debit card. Amazon is offering $5 in Amazon credit if you sign up by October 31 and load $30 into your account. You can look up partner stores in your area here.
I don't think Amazon affiliate links are allowed here, but if you'd like to use mine so Papa Bezos throws a few pennies my way you can click through the links on the FFG blog post. Thank you!
Chipotle Halloween BOGO
Again, technically not free food, but a big enough discount on a popular place for this community so I thought I'd include it here since I'm already posting.
Normally on Halloween Chipotle offers half off if you show up in a "costume" (they are very lax on what actually counts as one). Since there's a pandemic going on, they instead switched up where they'll release a "keyword" on their Twitter/IG/TikTok accounts between October 29-October 31. You text that keyword to 888-222, and they'll text you back a code you can load into the mobile app for a BOGO. Official announcement
Free pancake for kids 12 and under from IHOP, October 26-30
IHOP announced in this weird and kind of creepy tweet with a talking mummy pancake that from 7 AM to 10 PM, October 26-30, kids 12 and under get a free "Mr. Mummy" pancake when dining in. If you'd rather do takeout to be safer, you can get that pancake for free with promo code "FREEMUMMY" with a $20+ order via the mobile app.
Americans, go vote!
As a reminder, this week marks the last week of early voting. If you or someone you know hasn't voted yet, make a plan and cast that ballot!

(note I haven't personally verified that these all work the same post-COVID, so YMMV)
