    Not free… but worth mentioning…. LANDRY’S restaurants….Bubba Gump, Landry’s Seafood, Morton’s, McCormick & Schmick’s, Oceanaire, Rainforest Cafe, Saltgrass Steak House, Chart House… and others. $25 to join their Landry’s Select rewards. The day after you register your card online you get a $25 off coupon. (No min purchase)… THEN… every year for your birthday you get another $25 reward!!! (Only pay the membership cost once!!) Plus, you get priority seating, no need for reservations. Once went when thr wait was an hour, and get seated next available table.

    Wow!!!  This is just brilliant!  The time you have taken to put all this together for everyone is amazing, well done you!  This is a little gold mine here.  It just goes to show that if you take the time you can find some real bargains out there.  Unfortunately I am not in the US, but at least it gives me the names of the various chains which we have over here in UK and I can then look on their sites here in the UK and see what offers they have.  Thanks a million for sharing this info 🙂

      Hi Debbie, thanks so much for sharing! It’s a great idea to see which of the places on this list are available to you locally and check to see if they offer similar things in your area. I hope you find some great local offers!

    Joining reward programs and getting loyalty bonuses can save you a lot of money. These restaurants all seem to be in America, so would there be similar programs in Europe? Do you think that getting free food as a bonus might add to the overweight problem that so many countries seem to be faced with?

    My local supermarket has a reward program that actually give me cash discounts on my grocery bill, which is fantastic.

    • Alyce says:

      I’m not familiar with European rules, regulations, or offers, but in America, it has definitely become more common to see bonus offers for signing up for emails or a loyalty program. I think obesity issues come from something other than free bonus food offers. Hopefully, these offers help people to save some money at the places they enjoy.

    Hello there, Alyce. This is a very informative post! There are so many deals out there and it is difficult to keep up and find them all. But I think you pretty much did a lot of the work for us. I never even would have guessed that some of these places would even offer a special deal. I am going to have to save this page for future references. Thanks for compiling all of these together.

  6. Kevin says:

    Wow, I would sign up for all of these reward programs! I’m a huge foodie. I’ll take any opportunity at getting great, free food. I’m surprised that I have basically never heard of any of these reward programs, which makes me wonder if the programs are available to me. Do you know if these restaurants are for the U.S. only? Or do a lot of these reward programs carry over internationally if the shops have franchises in different countries?

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Kevin, The restaurant rewards above are for restaurants in the US, but if you do recognize any that are available to you locally, you may want to check their local programs to see what offers they may have in your region. Best of luck!

    Wow! I haven’t been to Ikea since the pandemic. Before all the chaos happened I loved going there. Anyhow, I never knew Ikea offered free tea or coffee everyday. That’s pretty cool. Have they always offered tea or coffee? I just remember Ikea having free kids meals every Tuesday. And I believe they would watch children at a certain height for about an hour or two. I also knew in the women bathroom they had free diapers if the mom forgot hers and a free breastfeeding chair but, I never knew about the free coffee or tea. No wonder Ikea is one of my favorite stores to visit.  

    Another thing, I didn’t know that Piccadilly’s, Sizzlers, Ryans was all still in business. Where I live they all went out of business. hmmm..that’s interesting…

    By the way, to add to your list Texas Roadhouse offers a military discount at participating locations.  

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Lakisha, thanks for the tip about the military discount at Texas Roadhouse! 

      I’m not sure when Ikea started offering their guests free coffee or tea with each visit, but it has at least been an offer for a few years. It’s nice to enjoy that free perk before the long walk through the store!

    Thanks for sharing this collection of restaurant programs with signup bonuses that include free food. I was hoping to find some that were in my area, but these seem to all be restaurant offers in the USA. This will be perfect for traveling as a way to save some money while experiencing American restaurants and dining offers.

    • Alyce says:

      Hopefully you’ll find more offers like this in your area soon. It is definitely smart to keep these in mind to help save money when you are visiting the US.

    Well as a person who loves to eat and eat for free, I’m very very happy to have run into this post. I cannot express how much of a delight it would be to run into a restaurant and get paid or basically eat for free. I really appreciate this a lot for a way to eat well while minding budget goals. I will be looking into some of these free food offers today!

    Hello there, thanks for sharing this awesome article as it is a great help to the public, plus it has been of help to me personally. These sign up bonuses are mostly very good, actual bonuses that have value (that people want). I would like to try out one or two of the very nicest restaurants – but also would love to check out a number from the casual dinner section.

    Regards and thanks, David.

    • Alyce says:

      Thanks David, I like that these restaurant signup discounts and bonuses provide a great opportunity to try so many new places. Enjoy!

    Hello and thanks – it is nice feeling to know that someone will create a great website like this and also write an article like this to share great free signup bonuses at restaurants. This is a really a long list that you have here (much more than excpected!) and while going through the list, i could not help wanting to partake of almost everything. Thanks again!

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Benny, It is definitely nice to have so many restaurants to choose from that offer free signup gifts!

  12. Karin Nauber says:

    Wow! Thanks for the great comprehensive list of restaurants and other places that give out some great sign up freebies. I was thrilled to find your site! I am always looking for freebies and good deals and your site meets my needs perfectly! Being a grandma who is raising one of my grandchildren, I am especially inclined to find things that I can offer to her like a free meal now and then! Thank you again!

    I am not familiar with rewards signup bonuses. You did a nice job putting up this list together, now I understand what rewards signup bonuses are.

    These bonus are really nice bonuses. Especially IKEA. The IKEA loyalty program is really really generous; I couldn’t imagine that I can get a free drink every day without purchasing anything, just for signing up! This is fabulous.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Techie, In my town, the IKEA is within walking distance of a large university. I can only imagine that the students really enjoy the opportunity to get free coffee with their loyalty program!

  14. Shifts says:

    Hi there. Thanks for sharing this article concerning quick rewards: signup bonuses at restaurants. Of a truth, there are so many loyalty programs nowadays and it becomes hard to know which ones will payoff, and how long it’s going to take to start earning rewards. I commend you for taking your time to recommend the best for us.

    These are too good to be true
