Today’s Deals: Steakhouses, Fast Food and ‘Free’ Soda

Including Carl’s Jr., Del Taco, Einstein Bagels, Hardee’s, LongHorn Steakhouse and more.

I subscribe to the promotional emails of hundreds of companies so you don’t have to. I sift through 1,000 deal-touting emails every week. Most are worthless. But some offer valuable coupons, promo codes, sales and freebies — which I collect and organize.
