January 14th, 2021

We’ve talked about some ways you can save on meals when dining out before and mentioned loyalty programs. Today we wanted to round up some of the best loyalty programs around. Check out this list and then get ready to save next time you treat yourself to a meal out!


If you haven’t already signed up for Plenti, American Express’s money-saving program, now’s a great time to do it. Spending money at one place can earn you rewards for other popular spots like Macy’s and Rite Aid. Through Plenti, you can earn free appetizers and desserts at Chili’s. You’ll also be able to enjoy a free dessert on your birthday.


Download the app to take advantage of discounts and free items at Chick-fil-A. The app also allows you to track purchases, collect points, and earn free items. 

Dairy Queen Blizzard Fan Club

No need to download an app–just sign up for Dairy Queen’s Blizzard Fan Club emails. You’ll receive coupons for buy-one-get-one-free Blizzards and free birthday treats.

Domino’s Pizza Rewards

If you love a slice of pie at the end of the week, Domino’s rewards are for you. Earn 10 points on orders over $10. After you reach 60 points, you’ll get a medium two-topping pizza for free. You’ll also have a chance to randomly win shares of Domino’s stock each month.

Dunkin’ Donuts

Donut fans definitely need to join the DD Perks program. Earn points with each purchase; after 200 you’ll get a free drink. Fortunately, each dollar you spend earns you 5 points, so you’ll get rewards for every $40 you spend. Plus, you’ll get a free drink for signing up and on your birthday. Pretty sweet deal, right?


With the McDonald’s app, you can order food ahead of time and pay for it easily. That’s not all, though. You’ll also receive tons of coupons that make it easy to earn free McCafe drinks and other rewards.

Panera Bread MyPanera Card

When you get the MyPanera card, you’ll get a reward just for signing up. The more you visit, the more rewards you’ll earn. You’ll earn free bakery/cafe items like bagels and pastries, as well as discounts on items you order often. If you download the app, you can also order and pay for items ahead of time and skip the in-store wait!

Red Robin Royalty Program

Red Robin’s generous rewards program gets you a free burger during your birthday month. Plus, every 10th item you order is free. Once you sign up, you’ll also get $20 toward your sixth visit within the first five weeks after signup.

Starbucks Rewards

Can’t start your day without coffee? Download the Starbucks app and earn stars for each drink you purchase. After a certain number of stars, you’ll earn a free drink. You’ll also receive a free drink on your birthday! You also won’t want to miss in-store events, which give you the chance to earn extra stars.
