Top 10 Free Restaurant Apps for Finding Food and Drink Deals

The clocks have sprung forward, and it's time to start your spring cleaning. But don't stop with sweeping up the dustbunnies from under the furniture. Consider a digital spring cleaning, too. Purge your unused smartphone apps (I found a Japanese drumming app installed on my iPod touch ... WTH?) and free up space for new ones that could potentially also save you money — particularly if you're a foodie or night owl who likes to go out. Declutter your phone, and take a look at our list of the top 10 apps for finding restaurant coupons and deals in your locale. The best news? They're all free! Armed with these apps, you'll be able to afford to eat out without heating up cans of beans for breakfast the next day!

1. Blackboard Eats
Available for Los Angeles, New York, San Franscisco, and Chicago residents, Blackboard Eats (or BBE) helps you find local restaurants and usually scores you between 10% and 30% off your meal. You can read reviews of the restaurant, view available deals, and purchase deals through the app. You'll receive a BBE passcode by email, which you'll use to make your reservations, whether online, by phone, or in person. The best bit? The app is run by former staff members of Gourmet magazine, so the focus is on delicious deals at high-caliber restaurants.

Unlike BBE though, you need to actually be at the location to access the deal, which you show your server to activate. There are also "Return Perk" deals for customers who return to the same location more than once, and you can learn of any upcoming events in your area, such as film screenings, pub quizzes, and happy hours.

3. Foursquare
There are a lot of ways to use the well-known Foursquare app. Primarily, it lets you "check in" to restaurants in your area via your device's location services. Once you've checked in you occasionally "unlock" coupons for specific merchants. The savings with this app are usually modest, but sometimes you do get a pretty good deal, like a free entree or dessert. By checking in on Foursquare you allow…Read more:
