TGI Friday’s: Give Me More Stripes (And FREE Food Too)

by Tara Kuczykowski on April 3, 2009 · 57 comments

tgi-fridays-dealsJoin the TGI Friday's Give Me More Stripes program, and you'll be well on your way to earning FREE food! Just for registering you'll receive a one-time skip to the front of the line pass and a coupon for a free appetizer or dessert.

The program allows you to earn coupons for free food worth up to $8 every time you reach $100 in food purchases.

Other incentives include:

  • complimentary welcome tastings
  • upgrades on beverages
  • preferred seating
  • preferred parking

Also, reader Bonnie emailed me today to share that current members just received coupons for one-cent appetizers at the bar with the purchase of a beverage and one-dollar entrees with the purchase of an entree!

This month you can also get double points on your Stripes Card so you can earn free food even quicker!

how can this be done

Where is the hyperlink to sign up?

Thank you.


4 Tara Kuczykowski April 3, 2009 at 4:23 pm

Oops, sorry about that! It's there now.


5 Jim/Charlotte April 3, 2009 at 4:45 pm

Thanks, you're a good woman.

A couple of other tips

*Be sure to present your stripes card before any purchases...even if you use coupons, you still get stripes points for the *original, pre-discounted* total

*Read the exclusions on the email coupons. Of late they have been for dine-in only or for lunch only.

*You get stripes points for any purchase. So, $100 in gift cards during the holidays gives you $20 in free gift cards (holiday promo) AND $8 email coupon for spending the original $100. So, $128 for spending $100.

*Friday's does have carry out, although they don't advertise/promote this... Save on drinks, etc.

I have never seen evidence of the "other incentives" mentioned above (welcome tastings, preferred seating/parking, drinks upgrades).....perhaps these are regional promos?

I'm so glad you posted about this. I have a TGIFriday's card as well. I emailed them when I first signed up because it was taking a while to get my email about the free appetizer. I finally got the email, but never heard back from them. Until, about a week later, they emailed me saying that they were sorry that they had not replied sooner, and in return for me having to wait, they sent me a voucher for $8 off! I've also been getting coupons lately, such as 1 cent appetizers, and b1g1 free Jack Daniels entree's. I love that place!
