January 1, Deceptive Campaign: Applebee’s Date Night Pass Exposed



Applebee’s is stepping up its game, offering a limited number of $200 “date night” subscriptions for 52 weekly dates. This incredible deal went on sale Monday, allowing subscribers to enjoy $30 worth of food and drinks on the house every week for a whole year, from February 1 to January 31, 2025. The only downside? Alcoholic beverages aren’t covered.

The card is valued at over $1,500, and if subscribers make the most of this deal, they could save around $1,360 in a year. However, this would require using the pass every single week.

Unfortunately, this sweet deal isn’t available at 16 Applebee’s locations throughout the United States, including spots in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland, among others. But it seems there might be more to this story.

Some customers took to Twitter to express their frustration with the deal, claiming that the website crashed and the passes sold out within minutes. One user tweeted, “Wtf @Applebees so your website crashes and then 2 minutes later this is sold out?? Is this a joke?? I was waiting exactly at 11 AM. This is bs man.”

Another user accused Applebee’s of using the Date Night Pass for free social media publicity: “Applebees finessed everybody and used the Date Night Pass for free social media publicity.”

A third tweet read, “Marketing Professor: ‘This is a fickle industry, Bud Light managed to piss off my entire primary demographic by choosing the wrong spokesperson and running a series of ads.’ @Applebees: ‘Hold my Bud Light…’ #ApplebeeScam #DateNightPass.”

Some are even speculating that Applebee’s wasn’t actually selling these alleged date night passes and that the whole thing was a publicity stunt. If that’s the case, they certainly got the attention they were looking for, albeit by angering potential customers.

In conclusion, it seems that Applebee’s may have some explaining to do regarding this too-good-to-be-true deal.

Why It Matters (op-ed)

Applebee’s “date night” subscription is a perfect example of how the left-leaning mainstream media and big corporations are manipulating the public and fostering a culture of entitlement. This too-good-to-be-true deal is just another instance of these entities preying on the hard-working, red-blooded Americans who have been led to believe that they deserve constant handouts and discounts.

By offering this deal, Applebee’s is not only contributing to the decline of traditional values but also promoting the idea that dating and relationships should be built on cheap thrills and superficial connections. It’s time for us to stand up against this kind of manipulation and demand better for ourselves and our country.

    I think this is a wonderful idea. We might be over 65 years old but love a little romance with a Date at least once a month someplacae. We love to eat at Applebees and would love something like this as it is just so romantic for us. I would for sure buy this if it was available in our area as it would be great for our Birthdays and Anniversary.

    From what I gathered the worst problem is that the $30 is not good on promotional items. So any two for $24 items or any other primrose offerings are not available for the $30.

    Or, just like concert events that sell out after two minutes of going online, so goes the same with these tickets. It’s not unheard of for tickets to sell out within minutes, nor is it unheard of for websites to crash due to too much load being put on the server at the same time. Investigate and find out if tickets were actually sold, if no, then that’s a problem, but I think people just need something to complain about.
