How do you find new places to check out? Ty and I are avid Yelp fans. Whether we are visiting a city we’ve never been to or just want to discover someplace near us, we always hop online and do a search. I take the reviews of other Yelpers to heart! If a place has 4 or more stars, I trust it.
And when we do this, sometimes we find a hidden surprise: a special deal for checking in! The extra 5 minutes we take to check out Yelp on our phones oftentimes leads us to free goodies. Totally worth our time!
Our Most Recent Yelp Freebie
Recently, Ty and I became Capital One 360 customers (more on that to come!). Ty found out that there are Capital One Cafes where bank customers get 50% off all beverages. The one close to us in Chicago serves Peet’s coffee so we were pretty excited. Well before we headed out, my smart husband checked out the Yelp app and lo’ and behold, he found a check-in offer for any sized beverage for free! We both were all over that. Ty ended up with a free large iced matcha tea and I got myself a large almond milk latte. SCORE.
While we are on the topic, I just want to point out how cool the Capital One Cafe was. It’s got a workspace vibe, superior customer service, and ATMs for us bank users. Plus it was HUUUUUGE. Ty and I got a ton of planning done on things that I cannot wait to share with you! After leaving, we decided we are going to make this place our regular Saturday morning coffee date. Even though we’ll only get free coffee once, we are super pumped that we can get 50% off any time! I seriously love saving money, even if it’s just a couple bucks.
Frugal Tip: Before you go out this weekend, check the restaurant, bar, or coffee shop on the Yelp app to see if there are any check-in deals. You might be surprised!
