Quick Thoughts

This is a fairly good offer seeing as it’s free to join My Chili’s Rewards and you can use it every time you visit Chili’s. The chips & salsa usually costs $3.79, while the most expensive non-alcoholic beverage appears to cost $3.39 (assuming that the gallon servings for $7.09 aren’t included.)

Chili’s frequently sends me emails with an offer for a free appetizer or free dessert. Being able to stack one of those offers with the free chips & salsa means we’d be getting $10 of free food during every visit to Chili’s. There’s no minimum spend mentioned, so in theory there’s nothing stopping you (other than your pride maybe) from only ordering chips & salsa and a dessert and getting a free “meal” if you also have one of the free dessert rewards in your account.

We bought quite a few Chili’s gift cards for 40% off during last year’s Google Express Amex Offer. We’ve therefore eaten there several times over the last few months, having not visited for a few years. I have to admit, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by their new menu, so this gives us a possible reason to return once we’ve used up our gift cards.

Personally, I think it’s smart of Chili’s to offer this. Everyone loves free stuff, but it’s unlikely to cost them much given that chips & salsa and soft drinks probably have the highest markup of anything on their menu. That means it’s only costing them a fraction of the $3.79 / $3.39, a small price to pay if it encourages customers to visit more frequently. Hopefully it’ll be seen as a success so that other chain restaurants offer similar deals.
