The ever-popular Red Lobster restaurant opened 45 years ago in Lakeland, Florida and has grown to be the world’s largest seafood restaurant, operating its premier brand of casual dining from Canada to Quatar. Launched in 1948 by restaurateurs Bill Darden and Charley Woodsby, the Red Lobster became part of the Darden Restaurant family in 1995, joining sister chain establishments Olive Garden, Longhorn Steakhouse, and others.
Today there are almost seven hundred Red Lobster restaurants offering mouth-watering fare around the globe. While the Red Lobster is certainly famous for its live Maine namesakes, patrons can savor salmon, trout, flounder, crab, tilapia and other seafood favorites.
Surprisingly, enjoying a delectable dining experience at the Red Lobster does not have to come at the expense of the family budget. Savvy consumers can be both frugal and dine out. Through the use of promotions, offers, and discount coupons, dining out and economizing is no longer an “either/or” proposition.
How Do They Do That?
Face it. Restaurants want your business and they are willing to get pretty creative to get it. One of the reasons the Red Lobster is such a customer favorite is there are many options for affordable dining.
Two ways the restaurant offers cost savings is through their website and their menu. Lots of yummy discounts are available right on the company’s official website and in the restaurant, no coupon required. It is not uncommon to find especially appealing buy one, get one entrée offers, or a mix-and-match opportunity where diners can sample two different entrees for the price of one. Other popular promotions include two-for-one lunch offers, and whole-meal-deal discounts, like two dinners for $25.
In addition to the rotating menu pricing, the Red Lobster will post dollar off and percentage off coupons in advertising circulars, mailers, magazines, newspapers, even the back of retailer and grocery store cash register receipts. It is always worth a minute or two to browse these materials for offers. Most coupons delivered through these channels will have an expiration date.
The Red Lobster also offers diners the opportunity of participating in their eclub. All that is required is to register with the some basic information and an email address. The restaurant will reach out to eclub members on their birthdays and throughout the year with preferred member discounts.
Worth the Search
What if you have browsed through mailers and emails, checked the website, and no current promotions are available? There are plenty of discounts available at your fingertips. Just go on line, enter Red Lobster and the word ‘coupons’ into your Internet browser, and you will find several places to retrieve and print money-saving coupons.
Savvy consumers should compare coupons. In some cases, a flat percentage discount off the total bill will be the better value, especially for large tabs and several diners. For singles or small parties, a fixed dollar discount may be better. Ten percent off a hundred dollar meal tab might be preferable to a $5 off coupon. Five dollars off a $15 dollar ticket would be better than taking advantage of 10% off savings. In comparing options, one size definitely does not fit all
On-line coupons can be a great way to save money. Be sure to review the comments section before printing coupons. The comments will report any problems or difficulties with the coupons posted.
