Here’s a selection of freebies for Valentine’s Day 2013 in the Dallas area:
Krispy Kreme: February 14 is the last day to get Valentine’s cards good for 12 free donuts—with the purchase of a dozen donuts at normal price.
Panera Bread: Use Treater.com to send a credit for a free cookie to a friend—or just to yourself, if you’d rather. Log in via Facebook is required. The resulting “Treat Card” doesn’t expire, but you must order the freebie by February 14.
Pretzelmaker: Like the pretzel chain on Facebook, and when you buy a heart-shaped pretzel, you’ll get a second one for free.
Qdoba: It’s buy-one-get-one-free entrees on February 14, so long as you share a kiss with someone when placing your order at the register.
Quiznos: Use the link to print out a coupon, good for a free toasted cookie with the purchase of a regular or large sub, on February 14 only.
Redbox: Enter the code SWEET online or at a Redbox kiosk for a free one-night DVD rental, on February 14 only.
Ruby Tuesday: Make a reservation online for February 14 to 17, and you’ll get a coupon for a free dessert.
