October marks the return of one of our favorite fundraisers: The Baker’s Drive-Thru Safe Halloween coupon books.
This year’s book includes 31 coupons representing $408 in savings. The coupons are perfect for handing out to trick-or-treaters or — if you’re like me — treating yourself, family and friends to free and discounted food and fun.
The deals start with three coupons for free food from Baker’s Drive-Thru: a bean and cheese burrito; egg soft taco; and French fries, hash browns or chips and salsa.
There are also coupons for free child’s admission to the Aquarium of the Pacific, the Planes of Fame air museum, the Ontario Reign and both Scandia’s and the Friends of C.I.D.’s haunted houses. There are several free passes for Fiesta Village and coupons for free miniature golf at Monarch Fun Zone as well as free bowling at Del Rosa Lanes and Victor Bowl.
Have a sweet tooth? There are coupons for a free mini cupcake at My Delight Cupcakery and a free donut from Krispy Kreme.
And that’s just the beginning.
The coupons books are just $1 and 100% of that goes to Easter Seals Southern California.
The books are available at all Baker’s Drive-Thru locations while supplies last.
