Budgeting For Amazing Food in Hawaii

If you love food and have a tight budget, this article is for you. Read on to find out how I was able to budget my restaurant experiences. This includes using gift cards, apps, and the Entertainment Book subsciption.

Buy Discounted Gift Cards

I checked Aloha Friday deals a year in advance to snag deals. Every week Aloha Friday Deals cycles different restaurant promotions, giving me a chance to buy gift cards for restaurants that appeal to me.

Locate Deals Through 3rd Party App

Installing Fivestar, Thanx, and Toast apps have open doors to finding more deals. Watch how I was able to get a free drink for being Fivestar loyalty member.

Signing Up to Be a Rewards Member to Get Deals

Many restaurants reward you for joining their loyalty program. I did some homework in Oahu to find restaurants that have loyalty programs. By signing up, I received sign up bonuses.

Redeeming Entertainment Book Coupons

Having an Entertainment Book Subscription opened doors to BOGO deals across the USA. I applied my location in the app and filtered for restaurant deals around me.
