Friday's Restaurants Offer Bonus Bites to All Guests on April 15

CARROLLTON, Texas, April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- T.G.I. Friday's restaurants today announced it will give its guests who visit Friday's on April 15 a tax day bonus: $5 Bonus Bites cards for purchases (excluding alcohol and tax) beginning at $15 through $25; $10 Bonus Bites cards for purchases over $25 while supplies last at participating restaurants in the U.S.

"Our guests say 'Give Me More Friday's' all year long and on tax day, they say 'Give Me A Break,'" said Andrew Jordan, senior vice president of marketing for T.G.I. Friday's USA. "With Friday's Tax Break, we're going to make April 15 feel like a Friday by giving our guests a break with our Bonus Bites cards."

In addition, as announced previously, the more than 840,000 members of Friday's guest recognition program Give Me More Stripes™ will be treated to double points during April, including tax day. Friday's awards members' stripes for dollars spent (excluding alcohol only purchases). Normally, for every $100 spent, members receive 100 stripes. For each 100 stripes earned, members receive an $8 certificate. With double stripes being awarded, members can receive an $8 certificate for every $50 spent since every dollar equals two stripes during April ($50 = 100 stripes = $8 certificate). Bonus Bites cannot be used in combination with any other offers.
