7 Free Food and Drink Deals in February

Treat yourself to something delicious this month free of charge.


In its Super Bowl commercial on February 1, McDonald's unveiled a new campaign called Pay With Lovin': Through February 14, in-store customers will be chosen at random to receive a free meal in exchange for performing an "act of love," which can include calling a loved one, fist bumping with a McDonald's employee or blowing a kiss.

Of course, there's no guarantee your McD's meal will be free. But there's nothing random about the free offers for tasty treats -- from fro-yo to coffee to bagels -- from other restaurants and retailers this month. In order to snag several of these food and beverage deals, you'll first have to register online to receive e-mail promotions, while others simply require showing up to a storefront on a specified date.

Hungry yet? Take a look:


Free bagels. On Thursday, February 5, Bruegger's Bagels is celebrating 32 years of business by giving customers three free bagels -- excluding toppings and specialty flavors -- at all of its locations throughout the U.S., from open (check with your local bakery for an exact time) to 11 A.M. You must fill out an online form to receive an e-mail coupon that can be presented in-store to claim your breakfast treat.
