No tricks here, just lots of treats! But stay alert – some deals last only a day, while others continue through the month of October. Keep your eyes open for treats from now until the Day of the Dead. On Halloween, frugal families and their little ones can find treats all over the place. Some deals are only valid on Oct. 31 while others are good both before and after. If you’re unsure of participation or offer details, call ahead. (Note: Some of the offers require a costume.) We will update and add to this list all month, so keep checking in. And don’t forget to search your favorite “local haunts” for more deals, as promos are not always just limited to national chains. Check out your local deals at our network sites here. And make sure you take a look at all our current Restaurant Deals, added daily to Living on the Cheap.
