Sometimes, deals can be a drag.
That tempting freebie might come at a cost, and it’s not always obvious at the outset.
Maybe your “free” meal requires you purchase a beverage or even a whole ‘nother meal.
Or maybe you get your “free” cupcake or complimentary stationery set for the price of your precious inbox space — and an “unsubscribe” button you can only spot with a magnifying glass. Welcome to marketing!
That’s why we’re excited about this deal from P.F. Chang’s. It’s simple to the point of elegance: Just walk into the restaurant on Thursday, Oct. 27, and you’ll get free sushi.
No purchase necessary, no forms to sign — as the site itself says, “no strings attached… (except for the one that caught the fish).”
Now that’s what I call a freebie.
Get Free Sushi at P.F. Chang’s This Thursday, Oct. 27
All you have to do is mention the free sushi deal to your server — you don’t even have to show them the online offer.
You’ll be able to choose your free roll: California or spicy tuna. Only one per person, please.
Unfortunately, locations in Atlantic City, Hawaii and Puerto Rico aren’t participating, and the same goes for international and airport restaurants. And you’ve got to dine in to use the offer — but who wants takeout sushi, anyway?
Best of all, you don’t have to purchase a single thing to take advantage of the promotion (but please tip your server as if you had)!
The only confusing part of this deal?
Sushi’s Japanese, and P.F. Chang’s calls itself a “China Bistro.”
Maybe it’ll soon rebrand itself as pan-Asian cuisine… and we can only hope it offers lots more easy, breezy free food deals along the way!
Your Turn: Will you head to P.F. Chang’s for a free sushi roll this Thursday?
