In case you haven't checked the calendar, Halloween is Friday (!!!!!)  

 

I still have no idea what I'm going to dress as, but I do know one (more important) thing: I will be hitting up Chipotle on Friday night.

 

Did you know that some restaurants offer free / discounted meals on Halloween?! And Chipotle is one of them! I'm actually a bit bummed to see that there aren't too many places that are offering deals this year, but here are the ones that I did find! Please let me know if you hear of any others-- you know I love some good holiday deals  :)

 

Also, unrelated, but look how pretty the trees are in Rochester!

 

I KNOW RIGHT? It's beautiful :) I'm just trying to forget that it could start snowing at any moment... well, except for yesterday, it was in the 70s!! whoa.

 

 

Free / Cheap food on Halloween:

 

Chipotle:

Gotta start with the best, right? If you come into Chipotle dressed in costume on Friday after 5pm, you can get a "Boorito"-- aka a $3 burrito/bowl/salad/tacos! (I remember in high school it was a FREE burrito if you came dressed as a burrito-- my friends and I would wrap ourselves in tin foil and hit up as many Chipotles as we could!... and then it jumped to $2 and now it's up to $3?! whoaaa)

Note: you don't really have to try too hard to dress up... I'm pretty sure they don't turn you down no matter what you're dressed as.

 

Krispy Kreme:

Dress in costume and you can get a free donut (any variety!) (haha but they do say "no masks" in your costume, so keep that in mind?)

 

Sonic:

50 cent corndogs all day on Friday... not sure I'd take advantage of that, but who knows, maybe you're a corn dog lover?

 

Ihop:

Free Scary Face pancake for kids who come in costume between 7am-10pm on Friday. This deal actually makes me mad, because I've seen commercials about it, and I'm pretty sure they never state "for kids" on there? I WANTED A SCARY FACE PANCAKE! ok, I wouldn't have actually gone to get one... but still!

And if we're going to talk about kids meals, there are a few other places offering free kids meals with the purchase of an adult meal: OutbackBoston Market, Olive Garden, and Sbarro. Click the links before you go-- some of them require a printed coupon.

 

And one last reminder:

Be sure to hit up the stores on Saturday to stock up on candy. That's the best time to buy it... it's all wayyyyy discounted! ;)

 

UPDATE!

Starbucks is offering $3 grande "Franken Frappuccinos" (and evidently you can get ANY grande frapp for $3) after 2pm Oct 29-31. I kinda want to try the Franken Frapp-- it's a green tea frapp with peppermint and other stuff added in. Sounds pretty good! But, I mean, $3 for a grande isn't that good of a price. You're probably saving, what, a dollar? Still cool though :)

 

 

Are you going to take advantage of any Halloween deals?

I know I will DEFINITELY be getting a "boorito" from Chipotle! :)

PS-- I'm sending out November's monthly Saving Money Challenge email on Friday-- be sure you're signed up for my email list so you'll get it!! :)
