We Love Dining Deals

As Fort Lauderdale Foodies, when looking for things to do in Fort Lauderdale, number one is we love to eat. Number two, we love coupons.  Getting both together makes us even happier.  We love finding buy-one-get one dinner deals. We love the 2-for-1 admissions to local attractions. We love our Fort Lauderdale discounts. And with so many restaurants and attractions, it’s almost hard to narrow down the list of things to do in Ft. Lauderdale, especially for someone just visiting for the weekend or traveling on a budget. But don’t worry, we’ll let you know what’s going on in Fort Lauderdale and the surrounding areas and let you know where to find deals that save 50% or more.

Being local residents of Fort Lauderdale, we’re still amazed by how quickly new restaurants and businesses seem to spring up overnight.  There’s always a new gourmet burger joint or micro-brewery opening somewhere in Fort Lauderdale every week. It’s really hard to keep up. You could eat out every night and never visit them all, and that certainly would break your budget.  Even our off-season local rates for Fort Lauderdale beach hotels have prices that will make you cringe.

But guess what??? All these Ft. Lauderdale hotels and restaurants are competing for customers and all offer some kind of discount or coupon to get you in the door.  Why pay $20 for a nice dinner out when the person at the next table only paid $10?  Why not add free drinks and dessert with your meal?  Why not extend your hotel stay another night for free?  And if you really think about it, who even shops nowadays at Bed Bath & Beyond without using those 20% discount coupons?

FTL Today has been around for many years now and we’ve easily saved thousands of dollars simply by using the coupons & discounts offered by our local business.  Restaurants and hotels are happy to see their advertising dollars are working and bringing them new customers.  And using coupons couldn’t be easier. You simply place the coupon on your table for the wait staff to see and they do the rest by subtracting the discount from your bill.  It’s like free money.

We love what we do and you can be assured we do not accept payments for our local reviews, but rather our site is funded by our readers supporting our partner program links.  In addition to letting you know of the unadvertised special deals we find, we strongly promote the following sites:

  • Living Social
  • Amazon Local
  • Restaurant.com
  • Groupon

These are widely know, reputable companies that offer great discounts to some of the best restaurants in Fort Lauderdale as well as hotels and resorts in our area. Whenever possible, we use these exact same discounts on our reviews.  Every review we do is from a personal visit by us and we’ll proudly share a photo of our receipt to show you the savings.

My dad loves to say “if it’s free, it’s for me”.  And even today, you better have a coupon in your pocket if you take him to dinner.  My mom also believes 10% off is not a sale, as she was scouting for the 50% off clearance racks. Well the same goes here at FTL Today. We love a big savings and getting things for free makes us happy. We hope to make you happy too.
