Where To Get Free Stuff Thanks To The Astros’ Victory In The 2017 World Series
Whether you were rooting for the Houston Astros or the Los Angeles Dodgers in Nov. 1's final World Series game, there are a lot of ways you can take advantage of the fact that the Astros won game seven against the Dodgers to take home the Commissioner's Trophy: For instance, tons of businesses around the country — but especially within Houston, Texas — are offering free stuff thanks to the Astros' victory in the 2017 World Series.
A few of these deals have already been reported on: For instance, on Nov. 1, Taco Bell offered free tacos between the hours of 2 p.m. and 6 p.m., inspired by Astros player Cameron Maybin stealing a base in game two of the World Series. Though that specific deal is over, there are still tons more both in Houston, Texas, and also around the country. Even if you're not a baseball fan (no shame in that!), you can still cash in on the various deals that businesses are offering — so long as you know where to look and go. Luckily, that's where this list comes in. Here are all the places you should definitely check out for freebies in honor of the Astros' win:
Shake Shack — Houston Galleria
This one is only for people in Houston, sure, but if you happen to be in the area on Nov. 2 you should totally head over to the Shake Shack location in the Houston Galleria (5015 Westheimer Rd.) to nab a free chili dog. The only catches are that you have to be one of the first 50 customers of the day, and you need to be wearing some sort of Astros memorabilia.
Who doesn't enjoy celebrating victory with a cone of ice cream? Rita's Houston, TX location on White Oak Drive has had specials for the last three Houston Astros wins. Including, a free upgrade to a waffle bowl or cone. With the World Series title now belonging to the Texas city, Rita's will surely know how to celebrate. Keep an eye on their Twitter!
It's no surprise that the city of Houston is going all out on the celebrations. This World Series title is the first for the Astros. And the city is clearly very proud. If you're in the midst of your victory dance, you might want to pause because Swolle Nutrition is offered a free boot camp valued at $1,125. To qualify, you'll have to like them on Facebook and tag three friends in their post!
Snappy Salads - Fountain View
When the Astros won, the people of Houston were the real winners. If you're in need of lunch and near the Fountain View location (1920 Fountain View Dr.), you might be able to snag a free half salad. In past Astro wins, this location has offered this deal but only to fans in Astros apparel! Check Twitter to make sure they have Championship deals!
Oui Banh Mi
The Astros officially won the World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Which means you can officially have the chance to win 10% ownership of Oui Banh Mi for a year. If you're in the Houston area and ever dreamed of becoming a restaurant owner, this is the deal for you.
Good Dog Houston
While the Dodgers and Astros were playing baseball, LA's Pink's Hot Dog stand and Houston's Good Dog were at it on Twitter. What resulted was 250 free hotdogs at both of Houston's Good Dog locations (903 Studewood Street and 1312 W. Alabama St) now that the Astros are officially champions.
Chick-fil-A - Galleria Mall
It's a good day to go to the mall. Head into the Chick-fil-A Galleria Mall location wearing your Astros gear and earn yourself a free sandwich entree from 10:30am to closing on November 2nd. It's a good time to be a Houston resident.
Chick-Fil-A - Pearland
If you're not around the Galleria in Houston, you can 10105 Broadway St in Pearland, Texas for a free Chick-fil-A Sandwich or 8-count Nugget entrée. It's limited to one per person and you must be wearing your Astros gear, obviously.
Dessert Gallery's Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Houston, we have cookies. For the first 100 guests at Dessert Gallery (3600 Kirby at Richmond) will be treated to a free, hot chocolate chunk cookie. They open at 11AM! BRB, booking a plane ticket.
CoCo Crepes, Waffles & Coffee
CoCo Crepes, Waffles & Coffee knows you spent the rest of last night celebrating. That's why they're offering a free coffee to those still wrapped in their Astros outfits.
Donuts Kolaches and Tacos Pearland
Stop by 6125 Broadway St in Pearland, TX for a free donut or kolache. There's no word on whether you need to be decked out in your Astros wardrobe, but it wouldn't hurt to walk in with a jersey on.
Orange Leaf Woodlands
When you walk into Orange Leaf Woodlands (6777 Woodlands Parkway, Suite 212) all you have to do is show them this image in exchange for your free 3oz frozen yogurt. That's a win if I've ever heard one.
