Eating out can be expensive. It can also be cheap. This money saving tip is about eating out cheap.
There are several websites that I have signed up for over the years. One of them is for Steak n Shake. Yum. I received an email it was my one year 'anniversary' being a member of that website.
What did I get for my gift?
I received a coupon for one double steak burger with cheese, which I never eat because it is usually extra, the cheese that is. Plus an order of French fries. The trick was you had to use the coupon for a dine in meal. No problem. I can do it. So, in the rain, I waddled into the local franchise.
Several times over the years I have purchased a large sweet tea, easy ice, from this restaurant. Why? It is only $1. Yes, it is what I picked today, too.
My tab totaled up to be $1.09 for a nice lunch.
Yes, I left a $1 tip, too.
Technically, I ate for $2.09 but the food cost was ONLY $1.09, for the tea.
There are pictures to prove it but the pictures are yet to be downloaded from my phone. It will happen.
Later.....take my word for it....grin.
Hint: even if you drive thru, between the hours of 2 PM and 4 PM, as well as 2 AM and 4 AM, a very large sweet or unsweet tea is ONLY $.55. In fact, ALL of their drinks are half price including milk shakes. fyi
