TGI Fridays offering chance to win free food for a year – How to enter

TGI Fridays is celebrating "the longest Friday of the year" on June 21, 2024, by offering fans the chance to win free food for a year.  

The restaurant chain is holding a giveaway in which 21 fans can win "a year’s worth of Fridays," which comes in the form of an e-gift card worth $1,000.

No purchase is necessary to enter the sweepstakes, but TGI Fridays said entrants "will have to get creative with it."

To enter, fans need to follow @TGIFridays on Instagram, then create a post "that somehow encapsulates ‘That Fridays Feeling’" – which is TGI Fridays’ tagline. Fans also need to use the hashtags #TheLongestTGIFriday and #SweepstakesEntry. 

"This can be either a post to the grid or to Stories, but you’ll have to tag @TGIFridays in whichever one you post; as social media pros are no doubt aware, participants will have to check their Instagram privacy settings to ensure their entries are visible to the TGI Fridays official account," the chain said. 

Fans can enter the contest through 11:59:59 p.m. ET on Friday, June 21.

Meanwhile, many other restaurants are offering deals to lure in new customers, including fast food chains McDonald’s and Burger King, which are reportedly bringing back $5 meals. 

And with kids home now for the summer, several chain restaurants are offering a chance for them to eat free alongside their adults.
