Fourth Of July 2022: Where To Find The Best Food Freebies And Deals

Hosting a cookout on July 4? If you need menu ideas, try one festive way to add vegetables to your Fourth of July celebration, AKA a flag-themed veggie tray. Of course, barbecue has been a Fourth of July tradition for more than a century, but if you're looking to accommodate the dietary needs of all your guests, try hosting a vegan Fourth of July party with plant-based hot dogs and dairy-free pies. Clearly, there's a lot to think about if you're hosting friends and family over the holiday weekend, but you can always use the time to go out and treat yourself to a restaurant meal instead of cooking everything yourself.

As is the case with other holidays, plenty of restaurants and chains are offering food deals you can take advantage of over the Fourth of July weekend — and some of these promotions are already running. We've rounded up some of the best deals on and around July 4, 2022, so you can kick back and enjoy your food, drinks, and the summer weather while saving a few bucks, to boot.


There's a lot that customers might not know about Pieology Pizzeria, but they should definitely be aware that there's no limit on the number of toppings they can put on their pizza at the chain. To build the loaded pie of their dreams, pizza fans can take advantage of Pieology's upcoming promotion from July 2 to July 4, during which customers can get $5 off any order placed in stores or online. To get the deal, you'll need to spend more than $30 and make sure you use the code 5OFF30JULY4, as reported by Today.


Applebee's is targeting late-night munchies with its new menu, but what if you want to wash your Late Night Half-Priced Appetizers down with a drink? For the Fourth of July, Applebee's has launched new cocktails that are red, white, and blue. According to a press release from the restaurant chain: two drinks compose the $5 Star Spangled Sips deal, the Blue Bahama Mama and the All-American Mucho.

The blended Blue Bahama Mama drink includes Tito's Handmade Vodka, frozen lemonade, strawberry, and blue raspberry, while the All-American Mucho mixes up Captain Morgan, Malibu Coconut rum, blue curacao, and an Applebee's blend of passion fruit, pineapple, cherry, and lime. These cold drinks are available now through July 4.


Prefer your drinks sans alcohol? A fresh fruit smoothie, then, is the perfect way to cool off in the summer — but if you don't want to whip one up at home, there's always Jamba. According to Delish, anyone who is a member of Jamba's rewards program can buy a medium Watermelon Breeze for $5 on the app and in stores from July 2 to July 4. The watermelon, strawberry, grape, and pineapple smoothie is available in both classic and plant-based versions. Jamba is also offering free delivery one those days if customers spend at least $12 on app and online orders.
