Shop hard, eat hard.
Surprisingly, there aren’t a lot of Black Friday-specific restaurant deals this year. You’d think chains would take advantage of the super high volume of shoppers out and about the day after Thanksgiving. I guess they know people will spend money regardless. Shopping clearly works up an appetite—last year, restaurant spending increased by 6.3 percent on Black Friday.

There are ongoing deals you should know about, though, before you head into the hysteria on November 23:
Take a coffee break at McDonald’s. Throughout November, you can get one McCafe beverage free with the purchase of five. If you’re not shopping with an army, you can also buy one medium or large McCafe drink, and get another for a penny.
If you can make it through Black Friday shopping without a drink, God bless you. For everyone else, you can get $2 Bud Lights at Applebee’s all month long.
Make a purchase and get a free Junior Bacon Cheeseburger for free every day between now and November 23 with the app.
