The 65 Applebee’s Restaurants in Austin, DFW, Houston, Central and East Texas Will Accept ALL GIFT CARDS, GIFT CERTIFICATES AND COUPONS from ALL BUSINESSES for Up to 50% Off Food Purchases in March
A year ago the largest Applebee’s franchisee in the Lone Star state, Apple Texas, was called bold and innovative for their out-of-the-box thinking when they announced their 65 restaurants would accept all coupons, gift cards and gift certificates from any business – expired or not.
Beginning tomorrow the first day of March, that too-good-to-be-true promotion is back! All 65 Applebee’s owned by Apple Texas in the DFW area as well as Austin, Houston, Central and East Texas and surrounding locations, will once again accept any – expired or not – paper, plastic or printed coupon, gift card or gift certificate from any business for up to 50 percent off food purchases at any of its 65 Texas restaurants.
“When we offered this promotion last year our guests were thrilled when we accepted their expired or just unwanted gift cards or coupons and they received up to 50 percent off their meal,” said Chris Dharod, president of SSCP Management, parent of Apple Texas. “It’s a fun promotion, it’s a great way to give back to the neighborhoods where we operate and it’s an easy way to visit us and get 50 percent off your food bill.”
All 65 Applebee’s that are owned by Apple Texas in the DFW area as well as Austin, Houston, Central and East Texas and surrounding locations are participating in the promotion. The offer may not be combined with any other Applebee’s discounted offer and may not be applied to alcohol. Guests with additional questions are encouraged to call their neighborhood Applebee’s restaurant.
The way it works is simple. If you have a gift card with a remaining dollar value, that’s how much you’ll receive off your food check, up to a 50% discount.
This promotion is only valid at the 65 participating Texas Applebee’s restaurants owned by Apple Texas.
