5 Tips to Save Money When Eating Out

11th Jul 2023 2 mins read


Eating out can get expensive fast, but it doesn't have to! Here are our top 5 tips to make eating out more budget-friendly.


1. Not All Happy Hours Are Created Equal!

Happy hours can vary greatly from restaurant to restaurant. While some offer amazing deals on meals and drinks, others may have less enticing offers. Before heading out to a happy hour, make sure to check the restaurant’s online happy hour menu.


2. Sign Up for the Mailing List and Follow the Restaurant on Social Media

Signing up for a restaurant's mailing list and following them on social media is a great way to stay informed about coupons and deals. Restaurants often send out emails or post special one-time offers on their social media accounts. Additionally, being on the mailing list may earn you a free drink or appetizer on your birthday.


3. Scan Your Receipt with ProMotion Rewards

ProMotion Rewards allows you to scan all your restaurant and retail receipts to earn points that can be redeemed for gift cards and Visa cards. Simply download the ProMotion app on your smartphone and start taking pictures of your receipts. Additionally, check the app for surveys and sweepstakes to earn even more points, leading to more gift cards and Visa cards.


4. Don't Be Afraid of Large Menu Items

Have you ever been to a restaurant and seen a large party plate of food or a giant pitcher of cocktails with a high price tag? Don't let those prices intimidate you! Splitting a party meal or pitcher of drinks between friends is an excellent way to have an affordable night out while still enjoying a fantastic time.


5. Tap Water Is Your Best Friend

Bottled water is a common upsell at restaurants, but often it's just bottled tap water. Opting for tap water is not only better for your wallet (and reduces plastic waste).


Restaurants don't have to break the bank for resourceful individuals like yourself! With these tips, you can still enjoy a great dining experience while keeping your budget in check. Bon appétit!
