RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - This Friday's freebie roundup will have you eating out at little to no cost. NBC12's discount diva found the deals you may want to get in on. already offers huge savings for restaurant gift certificates, but it's the end of the month and that means even deeper discounts. If you order by August 31, you can get a $25 certificate for only $2.

If you sign up for the year long dinner of the month club and type in clearance upon checkout, you'll get $300 worth of meals for $24, plus you get a $50 bonus certificate with your purchase.

Got pancakes on the brain? Then skip on over to IHOP's website. If you sign up to join the Pancake Revolution, you'll get a free meal now, one on your birthday and one a year from now.

We told you it was coming and now Planet Qpon has debuted in our area. Today's offer is 40 percent off the kids dine free card. This card offers a free kid's meal with the purchase of an adult entree at dozens of restaurants around town. There's no limit how many times the card can be used and it's valid for three months from the purchase date.

And if you haven't checked the recently mailed ValPak, there is a rare freebie this time. Chick-fil-a is offering two no strings attached coupons for chicken sandwiches and chicken biscuits.
