Memorial Day 2020: Where to get the best food freebies and deals

Memorial Day 2020 is loaded with all sorts of food deals and even some sweet freebies. Whether you're a veteran, an active member of the military, or just a hungry citizen celebrating our troops, there's a discount for you this weekend. 

If a craving for burgers, steak, BBQ, sandwiches, or ice cream hits but you aren't looking to head to the store, some of your favorite chains are ready to help you out, and on the cheap. Restaurants are getting crafty with their celebratory discounts this year in response to the pandemic, so nearly all of the deals are takeout or delivery oriented. It's time to fire up the ol' Netflix machine, because this Memorial Day weekend is going to consist of a ton of ordering in.

Memorial Day deals on burgers and fries

From May 22 to May 25, Burger King is offering up free french fries through Postmates. All you have to do is spend $15 and type in the code "FRYDAY" at checkout for gratis crispy-hot potatoes on your porch in no time (via Delish). 

If you're looking for a little more free food than just french fries, Whataburger has you covered. From May 19 to May 25, the chain is giving away an entirely free burger if you purchase a Whataburger online. Buy one get one deals make eating out even better.

Smashburger has an interesting new deal this weekend, too (via Today). Since April, Smashburger has been offering Take and Make Family Meal kits. Each order comes with a choice of Classic Smash Burgers, Crispy Chicken Sandwiches, or Smoked Bacon Brisket Burgers and tots. They're said to serve four and set you back between $25-$48 dollars. But all the kits are going to be $5 off from Friday to Monday. If you've got a big family at home, what better way to celebrate the holiday?
