Your phone is cluttered with apps. My phone is cluttered with apps. It seems to be the way of the world these days. However, you’re about to want to add a few more. Most businesses that offer any kind of good or service are getting into the app game. What better way to get people to download yours than by offering them free stuff. For your convenience, we’ve compiled some of the restaurants offering you free food, just for getting their app.


The Wendy’s app is constantly offering free food with purchases. Some longstanding, some only for certain days. There are all kinds of discount offers as well. Moreover, the app allows you to preorder your food and skip the line.


When you download the 7-Eleven app and create an account, you automatically get a free cup of coffee, a donut, a taquito, or a Big Gulp. Never use it again, or check back for discounts down the road.

Panera Bread

Sign up for MyPanera and your fealty will be rewarded with a free pastry. A free piece of bread may not seem earthshattering, but if you happen to frequent Panera a lot already, the rewards plan offers up lots of freebies down the line.

Krispy Kreme

Want a free donut? Just download the app. It’s as simple as that. Noticing a pattern yet?


Get a free scoop of ice-cream when you sign up for mobile deals from their app.


Get a free 4 inch sub with purchase from the Quiznos loyalty app.

Dairy Queen

Get a free small Blizzard when you download the Dairy Queen app and register for an account.


As soon as you sign up you get a free slushie or drink of your choice, a  coupon for a half off Blast (their milkshakes) and another coupon for a $1.99 kids meal.

Jamba Juice

Jamba Juice gives you a $3 off coupon when you install their app. The good news, if you so choose, you can use it to get a free pastry. The bad news, all of their drinks cost more than $3 so expect to cough up a little cash if you want a smoothie.


Get free chips and salsa or a non-alcoholic beverage every time you visit. Just download the app and become a rewards member.


Get the app (or sign-up for their rewards clubs online) and you get a free appetizer or free dessert.

Longhorn Steakhouse

You can get $5 towards your next visit when you join their membership program. Moreover, they are constantly offering free appetizers and desserts as well.


McDonald’s is constantly offering freebies. When you have the app and an account, you can get a free order of medium fries, or soft drink every Friday with a purchase of as little as a dollar. Get a free McCafe when you buy five. Want a McDouble for a dollar? Sure!  Here, have $3 off any purchase over $10. Get a signature sandwich for a dollar! The deals are always coming and going, but there are lots of them to choose from. If you’re looking for some free food, there’s plenty of it out there. Hopefully, your phone has a little bit of memory left!
