There aren’t nearly as many Halloween restaurant promotions as there were last year, but if you are planning on dining out or looking for something fun for the family to do, here’s a roundup of the deals we currently know of. We’ll include more deals and freebies as we find them and re-publish this post closer to Halloween.

Also, for readers in the Twin Cities area, don’t forget to check the Local Deals category to see what deals Laura has posted for free Halloween events coming up this weekend.

Wendy’s Coupon Booklet. Stop by your local Wendy’s restaurant and pick up their Trick or Treat Gift Book with 5 free Jr. Frosty coupons for only $1. Coupons are valid 11/01/10 through 2/01/11. Note: Some people have reported receiving a coupon booklet with 10 Jr. Frosty coupons instead of 5, so this offer may vary by region and restaurant.

The booklet includes three coupons for each of the following: free Apple Dippers, free small cone, free apple juice or milk jug and free hamburger. Coupons are valid 11/1/10 through 12/31/10.

    "Dress as a processed food…"

    Now where did I put that corn dog costume?? Might have to wrap myself in Saran wrap and go as a Kraft single.

    GreenMill in Blaine is also doing a kids eat free deal if they are in costume. I think it is for 2 days…sign was on the door.

  5. Hilary says

    i ask every year. woodbury mcdonalds is not selling the books however they will except the coupons. my mom buys them in indiana and mails them to me to use

  6. Becky says

    Last year, I bought the McDonald's treat "coupons" at the Hastings location. This year I may have bought them at Cottage Grove. (Can't remember, as it was a month ago!) Last year, when I went back for more, they said they were all gone.

    Kids eat free at Applebee's – Sunday only? or Friday and Saturday? Does an adult need to buy an entree?

  7. Janna C. says

    I called the Bloomington Applebee's and they had no idea what I was talking about and said they were not running any Halloween promotion.
