We here at Fast Food Menu Prices strive to provide you with up-to-date and accurate menu prices of the most popular fast food restaurants such as McDonald’s and Burger King. However, we understand that sometimes the prices can be a little higher than your budget allows.
In this article, we’ll go over the 5 places to find fast food coupons so you can be on your way to saving money. Although there are many different places to get fast food coupons, we’ll go over restaurant’s own websites, regional restaurant websites, coupon-specific websites, local newspapers, and postal office.
This might not have crossed your mind before, but some restaurants have a dedicated coupons section on their website. Most of them just require you to register an account or sign up to their newsletter, and then you should be good to go.
For example, if you sign up to the Long John Silver’s Coupon Club, you get to print out a bunch of coupons and you can do it over and over again. The funny thing is that you don’t truly need to sign up for their newsletter either. You can just search for “Long John Silver’s coupons” on Google and the first result should be their coupon page. In case you don’t feel like searching, you can just go to the Long John Silver’s coupons page directly.
Do you like KFC? Dumb question I know. So if you do, go and check out the KFC coupons page. Just enter your ZIP code and it should bring up a bunch of coupons for you to print off.
Regional Restaurant Websites
In some cases you will not be able to find any coupons on the restaurant’s website since not all restaurants promote coupons as much as others. So are you out of luck then? Not necessarily.
The second place to look for coupons is the regional restaurant websites. For instance, the main Wendy’s website doesn’t post coupons publically. So what you can do is go to Google and search for something like “Michigan Wendy’s” and you will be surprised what it finds.
For Michigan Wendy’s, you will find the regional Wendy’s website and on it you are given a choice to print various coupons. Because this is a regional website, the coupons are usually only valid in that state, so you will need to search for your state’s restaurant website.
If you are not having luck finding coupons on the restaurant’s website or their regional website, then it’s time to scavenge all the coupon websites. There is literally hundreds of different coupon websites and many of them are spam, so just go for the most popular ones.
The most popular coupon websites are RetailMeNot.com, Coupons.com, BeFrugal.com, and Dealspl.us. Although they provide many coupons, a lot of them will not work. That’s just the nature of coupons. They come and go. But these websites have a voting system where users can up vote or down vote coupons based on their effectiveness. So just try coupons that have the most up votes.
Having an active subscription to a local newspaper means you get some free goodies, which includes various coupons. Although the coupons change each time, you can usually find some fast food restaurant coupons in the savings section.
Don’t have an active subscription? That’s fine. Just go to your grocery store and buy one issue of your local newspaper and see what their coupon section is like. If their coupon section rocks, then maybe it’s time you get their subscription? Of course that will only be worth it if you like other parts of the newsletter as well, otherwise you’d be wasting money and paper.
Mail and Postal Office
And finally, if you have not been able to find any coupons at the four places mentioned above, then it’s time to start checking your mail more often. Fast food restaurants often send out coupons by mail to local residents, so you should have plenty of them coming in weekly.
Not getting any coupons? Go to your postal office and ask them to get a change of address form. With the change of address form, you will get many coupons to local stores like Lowe’s and Home Depot. Although it depends on your local postal office, I have seen fast food restaurant coupons as well.
And there you have it! We just showed you 5 places to find fast food coupons. If you can’t find the coupon you’re looking for at any of these places, chances are it just does not exist and you’re going to have to pay the full retail price. But you will be surprised at the coupons you find with a relatively short amount of time and effort.
