How to Get Free Fast Food From Sonic Restaurants

Sonic, the fast-food restaurant chain, didn't get to be the national force it is by giving away free food. Still, you can get a few things for free with special promotions, and it's not too hard to find discounts. Some of them are available when you drive up, while others are reserved for Sonic members.

Make a Sonic Profile

You can access members-only deals if you have an active My Sonic profile. You can view or print coupons to use in store there, and you'll get a coupon for free tator tots, a cream slush or medium drink on your birthday if you sign up for the Birthday Club. If you sign up for the Ice Cream Social, you'll get a monthly offer like $1 off an ice cream.

To sign up for a My Sonic profile, visit the registration page, complete the web form and click Create My Sonic Profile. Check the Exclusive SONIC News & Promotions and the Ice Cream Social boxes before you submit the form.

Tip
