All the free and cheap food you can get for Halloween

Posted at 11:59 AM, Oct 25, 2019

Halloween is just around the corner and eateries are celebrating with some spooktacular deals.

Here's a roundup of where you can score free and discounted food.

Sorry, this deal is just for the tots. Kids 12 years old and younger can eat for free 4-10 p.m. through November 3 at participating IHOP locations. The one catch: the deal only comes with the purchase of an adult entree.

Anyone looking for a cheap boorito? Chipotle has you covered. From 3 p.m. to close on Halloween, customers who are in costume can get a burrito, bowl, salad or tacos for only $4 at all participating Chipotle locations. But wait, there's more! If you're feeling extra ambitious, you can enter the chain restaurant's TikTok transformation contest to score free burritos for a year. People can participate by posting a TikTok video featuring their before and after Halloween transformations. The top five submissions using the hashtag #Boorito that receive the most likes will win free burritos for a year.

Krispy Kreme
Who doesn't love free doughnuts? Stop by your nearest Krispy Kreme on Halloween wearing a costume and you'll get a free doughnut of your choice. Sorry sweets lovers in Connecticut, Iowa and Nebraska — the costume offer isn't valid in your state.

Dig your fangs into some cheap and tasty treats when you stop by Baskin-Robbins on Halloween. The ice cream retailer is selling scoops for a discounted price of $1.70 on October 31. You can also get two pre-packed quarts for $7.99 (quarts are normally $6.99 each).

Noodles & Company
There's nothing scary about this offer: kids can eat free at Noodles & Company locations from October 30 to November 3. There are two caveats though: the offer is only available through the Noddles Rewards app and you must be signed up by October 29 to get the offer, and the deal is only valid with the purchase of a regular entree.

McAlister's Deli
Kids 12 and under can eat for free at McAlister's Deli when they come decked out in their costumes. But the offer is only valid for dine-in customers and with the purchase of an adult entree. The offer is valid October 26-31.

Yep, there's even deals for your furry friend. Go to any PetSmart store from noon to 2 p.m. October 26 and your best four-legged pal can score some free food and fun. The event will feature trick-or-treating for dogs!

Blaze Pizza
The pizza chain is offering free delivery now through Nov. 7. But the spooky surprise comes in the form of its pizza box. A select number of boxes will display a secret message when placed under a blacklight. Anyone who posts their blacklight box on social media with the hashtag #BlazeHalloweenSweeps will be entered to win a contest.

Cheesecake Factory
Get a free slice of Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake Cheesecake or Hershey’s Chocolate Bar Cheesecake when ordering online and using the promo code TRICKORTREAT.

Chuck E. Cheese's
Through Halloween, kids can get 50 free tickets when they stop by wearing their Halloween costumes.

Edible Arrangements
Anyone who stops by an Edible Arrangements store now through Halloween can pick up a free "pineapple treat." The store is also offering a number of Halloween specials at lower prices.

Kids get a free kid-sized smoothie with the purchase of a full-sized smoothie when they show up to Jamba locations in costume. Adults must be part of the chain's rewards program to participate.

Customers can get free delivery and a free cookie now through Thursday when they place an order through Grubhub.

TGI Fridays
Through Nov. 3, Fridays is offering a cheeseburger and a side of fries for $5.
