Times are tough and food ain't cheap. If you've been milling around your empty pantry looking for a dusty bag of ramen to pop in the microwave, you might be interested in learning how to potentially get free food every single day from your favorite fast food restaurants.

All you need is a cellphone...

TikTok creator @thankucheese uses his platform to share various money-saving hacks. Check out the video below, and then go test it out for yourself.

As much as I'd like to try it out myself, I'm on a stupid diet, and I do NOT need to download a bunch of fast food apps...I feel like that would be counterproductive...and too tempting. Salads taste better when they are the only option. Haha.

Do you have any fast food apps that you swear by?

I think the only one I've ever actually had was the Taco Bell app. I downloaded it briefly so that I could get a taco pizza when they made a brief comeback for app users. I had to see if my childhood tasted the same as I remembered. It did not. It's never how you think it will be. Eaten a Hostess Ding Dong lately? Barf City, dude.

Anyway, hopefully, someone gets free food out of this hack! If you do, I would LOVE to hear if it works. I'm still a little skeptical. Please leave me a comment wherever you see this, or send me an email to Chrissy.Covington@townsquaremedia.com.
