4th of July 2019: Where to Get Deals and Red, White, and Blue Foods
Free cheesecake and discounted grilling packages are just a few clicks away.
There’s a lot to look forward to when the Fourth of July rolls around each year—barbecues stocked with chargrilled burgers and hot dogs, fireworks, picnics, and those refreshing red, white, and blue ice pops that always manage to stain your tongue. As is consistent with most major holidays (as well as questionable “National X Day” food holidays), several restaurants and food companies have promotions to celebrate. You can grab red, white, and blue bagels from Einstein Bros.; or, order from DoorDash to score a free slice of The Cheesecake Factory’s Oreo Dream Extreme Cheesecake. (When your order totals a patriotic $17.76 or more, of course.) Check out all of the deals we’ve found so far below, and keep checking back as we get closer to the Fourth of July, in case any more are announced.
The Cheesecake Factory
The Cheesecake Factory is partnering with DoorDash to give away one free slice of its Oreo Dream Extreme Cheesecake—Oreo cookies baked into cheesecake, with layers of fudge cake and Oreo mousse, topped with milk chocolate icing—between July 3 and July 7. To qualify for the deal, your order has to total $17.76 or more, and you need to enter the “OREO” code at checkout. (Offer limited to one free slice per guest.)
You can score 25 percent off on all dine-in orders at Grimaldi’s on July Fourth, save for locations in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
Original burritos are $4 all day on July 4th. Pick from shredded chicken, beef, or marinated chile verde pork, which is then mixed with refried beans, Spanish rice, and Longhorn cheddar cheese.
The meat purveyor has several deals on grilling packages, including a $69.99 "Independence Day Cookout" offer (20 items, such as top sirloins, Omaha Steaks Burgers, and filet mignon Polish sausages), and “The Steak Connoisseur’s Fourth of July”—$109 total, with flat iron steaks, ribeye, bacon-wrapped filet mignons, and boneless New York Strips.
