Pei Wei Asian Diner offers free food


Clearly I need to post this quickly, before lunch.

Pei Wei Asian Diner is giving out a coupon (today only) for a free entree, Vietnamese caramel chicken, a new dish wok-tossed in a caramel-chile sauce and topped with an Asian slaw of cucumber, red bell pepper, carrots, red onion and chile peppers marinated in a black pepper Asian vinaigrette.

Whew. ...

The coupon can only be redeemed next week during Pei Wei’s Vietnamese Lantern Festival from Feb. 1 to Feb. 7.

Looking at the press release, I don't see any conditions attached, such as having to order a second entree -- or having to order anything to get the coupon in the first place.

Copied from their Facebook Fan Page:

TODAY is the LANTERN FESTIVAL! Come into any Pei Wei, sample our NEW Caramel Chicken and get a voucher for a FREE order of the Caramel Chicken (w/ entree purchase).

So, apparently, you have to purchase an entree today to get the coupon to use next week.

True... Or, they could be handing out bite-sized samples like you see at food courts in the malls..........

captcha: in blotters.... hmmm, maybe not on toothpicks.... but if it's so greasy they need blotters, well.......

Thanks for the tip! I work about 2 blocks from the one on York Road, so I ran over there for some takeout. I didn't get a sample (maybe since I didn't eat in?), but they were stapling a coupon to each takeout bag.
