Well, it’s not news anymore that graduation ceremonies for college seniors and high schools will be very different this year. In place of the usual crowded and stuffed up stadiums and auditoriums, students across the country will have to tune into virtual festivities.
While nothing seems to be able to replace the thrill of receiving a diploma on stage, a number of eateries are offering free food and other special deals. This should make 2020 a sweeter and more savory year for those celebrating.
The first set of 5,000 customers, who purchase a graduation-themed gift card from the burrito chain between the 21st of May and the 30th of June will be receiving a coupon code that will guarantee a free entrée.
Furthermore, the chain has also organized a contest on Instagram that allows students to win a scholarship worth $250,000.
Although graduates may not receive big bouquets from all of their relatives in person, Edible Arrangements will be giving away free Celebration Dipped Fruit Delights to 2020 graduates.
All that is required of the graduates is to post a video on social media using the hashtag #EdibleMoments. They also have to include their name and also explain how they plan to celebrate graduation. For the non-grads, the fruit bouquet site is also offering a 20% discount off all the graduation-themed gifts bought between the 14th of May and the 5th of June.
Jack in the Box
Now, this is something to be excited about. Jack in the box will be giving away two free tacos to honor the graduating class of 2020. You can score the deal by making a purchase through the Jack in the Box mobile app between the 26th to 29th of May.
Every Friday between now and June 28, you can get free French Fries at McDonald’s with a minimum $1 purchase.
Ruth’s Chris Steak House
After receiving a major backlash for receiving $20 million through the Paycheck Protection Program, the steak house is celebrating graduates with a merry freebie- steak!
Between now and the 28th of June, any graduate that purchases any two entrées becomes eligible to receive Ruth’s fillet. This offer is currently available at participating restaurant locations. Although, the customers may be required to present proof that they’ll be graduating this year.
The burger chain has a new “Graduation Family Bundle Meal” that includes 4 Classic Singles and 4 Smash Tots for $25.95 or 6 Classic Singles and 6 Smash Tots for $38.95.
