MINNEAPOLIS (CNN/WCCO) — Election Day may be a stressful or emotional time for many, and a bunch of restaurants are stepping up with discounted or even free comfort food to help you cope.
According to Thrillist, these local establishments have deals for Election Day:
Cardigan Donuts, Minneapolis
You can take 25% of your donut order when you wear a sticker that says “I Voted” in the shop. Also, there will be a drawing for a free dozen later on this week.
La Doña Cervecería, Minneapolis
Election Day happens to be Torta Tuesdays, and you can get a torta and a beer for a dozen bucks.
Trio Plant-Based, Minneapolis
You can take half off all appetizers during Election Day’s happy hour. You’ll be able to get it for carryout over the phone or walk-up orders.
Are these deals little more than gimmicks to get you in the door (or app) to spend more money? Absolutely. But hey, everyone needs to eat. And the fast-food industry — a zero-loyalty business with razor-thin margins — relies on these short-term promotions to boost sales from time to time.
Through Grubhub, Burger King is offering $3 off orders of $18 or more.
On Nov. 3 you can get the Presidente Margarita for $5 and a free commemorative sticker.
The sandwich chain is offering a free turkey sub and free delivery on orders of $10 or more on Election Day for orders placed through Grubhub.
McDonald’s is giving away one of its three new McCafe items — an apple fritter, a blueberry muffin or a cinnamon roll — free with a purchase of a hot or iced coffee on orders placed through its app. The promotion runs from November 3 through November 9. So, technically you can keep the free carb train rolling all week.
If you’ve never ordered from P.F. Chang’s before, you’re in luck. The chain is doing a $10 off deal for new diners through Grubhub.
Until November 8, Wendy’s customers can get a free Classic Chicken Sandwich with any purchase. It’s “classic” but also new: Wendy’s is promoting it as a crispier and juicier fried chicken than its predecessor.
There’s also some deals just for people working at the polls:
Poll workers can get a free sandwich, including the Shackburger and the Chick’n Shack, from Sunday through Election day with a proof of badge.
