Freebie Friday! Movies, $1 pancakes & restaurant deals


NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Tax-free week kicks off Sunday and there are a lot of deals for shoppers who will be out and about this weekend.

Lots of great deals out there for people of all ages! First, a fan favorite is back. “Bring Your Own Cup Day” is back at participating 7-eleven locations through Saturday. Bring a cup, get a free Slurpee.

There are also discounts at participating best buy locations to celebrate their birthday. They have 50 deals for 50 hours until Saturday at midnight.

If you’ll be shopping tax-free this week at the CT Post Mall, they’re offering a number of discounts and deals.

If you’re a big Pokémon go player, discounts can be found at  places including AT&T, World of Beer and Red Robin.

If you stop in to see a movie there you can get a bunch of deals at participating restaurants including 20% off at Carrabba’s and Bar Louie.

Another movie freebie! Saturday is Cinemark Community Day. You can see a free movie from 9-1 Saturday at Cinemark locations and find discounted concession items. I called North Haven and they are participating.

Take the kids on Wednesday to see a free magic show at the post mall. The shows are at 2 and 4.

They can also be a part of Spiderman live as well as get a free superhero card. That’s next Friday at one and four.

Saturday is National Lemonade Day. Red robin is raising money for Alex’s Lemonade Stand. You can also try a sample of their freckles lemonade.

Tuesday is No Kid Hungry day at IHOP. Short stacks will be $1 from 7AM-7PM. IHOP is donating the dollar to No Kid Hungry.

As always let me know when you know of any freebies so I can include them next week.
