First, there were free tacos during the World Series. Next, we got free tacos thanks to the Warriors “stealing” a road victory during the NBA championship. I don't know what genius over at Taco Bell HQ convinced his boss to give away free food during sporting events, but I hear the Underwater Basket Weaving Championship is coming up next month!
In the meantime, we now get a free Doritos Loco taco with no purchase necessary simply by downloading the Taco Bell app! In addition to grabbing this freebie in-store, you'll need to order your free taco with the Apple or Android app.
After making an account, look under the Rewards section for this freebie.
You can get a free hot or cold fountain beverage at 7-Eleven every day between now and 8/9/20. You'll need to use their free mobile app on either Apple or Android in order to get this freebie. The coupon offer should be found under “Deals” and here's an image of the actual freebie.
Well, no. In some regions, like mine apparently, this offer is only for $1 off. That's obviously not free, which means it obviously stinks. But, for most people across America, this should be a coupon for a free pizza. To check your area, simply log into Ibotta's app, then search for CAULIPOWER to pull this offer up.
This freebie expires July 12, 2020 at 6:08 AM. Ohhh, Ibotta. You're always there for me, ending your freebies at the weirdest times possible.
Through Sunday, June 28, get a free Burger King Whopper in honor of .. I don't know, Burger King deciding we get free food? I just did the steps below and had my coupon for a free whopper within seconds.

Ace Hardware is offering a $5 coupon to new users of their mobile app. Just create an account, then the bonus coupon will be available in you account the next day. I joined last night and the coupon was in my account by this afternoon.
This past summer, I wrote about earning money by scanning your receipt with ReceiptPal. This past week, as I cashed out an Amazon gift card with them, I started wondering what other apps will pay you for snapping quick photos of your receipts. Turns out there are a ton and my newest favorite app is Fetch!
If you've been using ReceiptPal, then Fetch will seem just like home. Scan your receipt with your smartphone, earn points, then spend those points on gift cards. You're literally getting paid for everyday shopping you're doing already.
After downloading Fetch for either Android or Apple iOS, create an account and enter promo code FETCH2K. This bonus promo code expires soon, but earns you 2000 free points – good for $2!
Earn your first gift card today
When I posted this last month, multiple Hiffers earned $5 gift cards right off the bat.
Thanks, Goob! In less than 10 minutes I downloaded the app, set up my account, scanned my grocery receipts from the last 2 weeks and earned enough points for a $5 gift card. This is awesome!!
Same for me as the previous commenter! Scanned the receipts I had in my wallet and along with the bonus (and a bonus for buying hot dogs, lol), got myself a $5 Amazon gift card.
I had a few recent receipts in my purse and, not knowing if they’d be accepted, decided to try and capture them. They were accepted and, along with the referral bonus, in about 10 minutes including sign-up time, I had enough points for a $5 Visa card. WooHoo! Of course I’ll be proactive now and build toward a real reward. Thanks…
How Fetch Works
One thing you'll quickly notice is how much more info there is with Fetch! Not only do they scan your receipt, but it'll actually break down what you bought into categories and give you a nice summary.
On top of that, Fetch gives bonus points if you buy certain products. These items rotate each week and you don't have to buy them in order to scan your receipt and earn rewards. However, if you happen to buy any of them, you'll get a few hundred or even thousand bonus points.
My absolute favorite feature is you have 14 days to scan your receipts in Fetch. ReceiptPal forces you to scan receipts within 5 days, which left me forgetting to scan tons of receipts. Now, I let them pile up on my shelf. Then I scan them each weekend and toss them away.
I find I'm earning points, and therefore gift card rewards, much faster with Fetch. Not only are their rewards easier to obtain by having lower thresholds, but even the time I spend in the app itself is small. The camera function couldn't be faster to snap a picture and move on with the rest of my day.
One of my small gripes is that Fetch doesn't work with some retail receipts, like clothing stores. I kept forgetting about this and trying to scan retail receipts before my pea-brain finally started remembering.
Can I use coupons or other receipt rewards apps and still earn Fetch rewards points? – You bet! Fetch can be used with coupons and other apps, so you can save money and stack your rewards earnings on top. In fact, there's no reason not to use multiple receipt reward apps!
How long do I have to submit a receipt? – My favorite Fetch feature is you have a full two weeks (14 days) after the purchase date to submit your receipts.
Where does Fetch work and what stores participate? – Fetch works with most major grocery, convenience, liquor, drug, club, and big box stores. A full list of participating sites can be found on their website.
Wendy's offers all sorts of free food with any mobile purchase. These are ordered via their mobile app and can be picked up via drive-thru. A single small drink order will be enough to trigger these free offers.
To find these deals, simply download the Wendy's app via the Google Play or iTunes store, then look under “Offers.” I was presented with the following freebies in my app over the past few months:
Free Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit with any purchase, breakfast hours only.
Free any size hot coffee with any purchase.
Free Dave's Single burger with any mobile order.
Free Breakfast Baconator with any mobile order.
Free Bacon Pub Fries with any mobile order.
Free Breakfast Croissant with any mobile order.
Free Classic Chicken Sandwich with any mobile order.
Some really cool mobile games that normally retail for $4.99 each are now free!
I've personally played both Alto's Adventure and its recent sequel, Alto's Odyssey. They're neat games to “zone out” to without trying incredibly hard. They have amazing soundtracks too, I recommend playing with a pair of headphones. You can obviously get lost in them, but you can also easily play for a solid 5-15 minutes at a time.
If you ever eat with them, you should certainly join the free Chick-fil-a rewards club. You earn points with every purchase, which help move you up through higher reward groups. With each group comes increased coupons, samples, and freebies.
One cool perk of the apps is they allow you to make orders ahead of time. Hiffer Lauren also had some great tips to share regarding Chick-fil-A freebies and using their app:
Hey! As a CFA employee, let me give you a tip when using your app:
First, make sure you've downloaded and registered/signed in before you get to the window. (Yes, that's happened more times than I can count in the past two days. I dread the rest of the month.) Try and bring up the app before you get to the window because the load times on it are ridiculous!
If you go through the drive-thru, please tell us when you order that you’ve got a free treat to redeem 🙂 They have to ring it up a special way for it to go through, and if you wait until you’re at the window, the cashier has to re-ring everything for you, which slows down the line (and for some reason makes the person who forgot to tell us about their treat very angry…)
When ordering inside, do the same thing! Have a great day, y'all!
Does anyone else kind of wish the Chick-fil-A waffle fries were made from actual waffles? I can't get enough of breakfast food. Mainly because there are rarely any vegetables and I can drown everything in syrup.
In addition to triggering the Taco John birthday freebie, you can get a free crispy or soft shell beef taco. Simply download their free app and make a free account, then your coupon should appear under “Promo Code.”
Make sure you also enter your birthday under “Profile” in order to get your free dessert each year!
