Once again this year, several restaurants are providing free kids meals or hosting “Kids Eat Free” promotions on Halloween. The idea is a good one. Not only does it save mom and dad some money, it also allows the little ghosts and goblins to enjoy a real dinner before they stuff themselves with candy. In most cases, purchase of an adult meal at regular price is required in order to get the free Kids Meal. In some cases, kids can eat free not only on Halloween, but also on the days surrounding the holiday. Costumes are required at some locations. Here’s the list for 2016:
Arby’s offers free dessert on Halloween at select locations. Present this coupon and choose a cookie, turnover, or Jr. Shake. Valid Monday, October 31 only. Not valid in conjunction with any other special promotional offer.
