Buy an entree, get another for nothing—if you kiss someone in line.
- VALENTINE'S DAY GUIDE
Tuesday, February 14, 2012
Customers at the Qdoba restaurant in Creve Coeur can get free food on Tuesday, if they don't mind a little public display of affection. The nationwide chain is bringing back a Valentine's Day promotion that, according to spokeswoman Ashley Cohen, tens of thousands of customers took advantage of in 2011. Anyone who buys an entree can get another for free—once they kiss a fellow customer at the cash register. It doesn't matter (to Qdoba) who it is. No coupon is necessary. The promotion is happening nationwide, though in Wisconsin, inexplicably, the second entree is 50 percent off, not free. There are two Qdoba locations in Creve Coeur. One is in Bellerive Plaza, the other is in Creve Coeur Plaza on New Ballas Road.
