T.G.I. Friday's® Restaurants Offer Gift Cards with Bonus Bites

Carrollton, TX | November 05, 2008

T.G.I. Friday's restaurants (www.fridays.com) today announced a great way for their guests to give and receive this holiday season: Gift Cards with Bonus Bites, plus an added bonus.

Today through January 4, 2009, for every $25 spent on Friday's® Gift Cards guests will receive a $5 Bonus Bites card while having all Gift Card purchases valid for "Give Me More Stripes" guest recognition program points.

"T.G.I. Friday's spreads cheer and value to our guests, their family and friends all year round," said Andrew Jordan, senior vice president of marketing for T.G.I. Friday's USA. "With Friday's Gift Cards, Bonus Bites and 'Give Me More Stripes,' our best guests can receive additional bonuses this holiday season."

A key value component of "Give Me More Stripes" is an $8 certificate for every $100 spent (excluding alcohol-only purchases), which now includes the purchase of Gift Cards. This is in addition to a free appetizer or dessert upon sign-up, a personalized and customized membership card, a one-time use "jump the line" pass and exclusive communication about specials and food/drink previews year-round.

For any 'Give Me More Stripes' member, this could equal up to $36 for the first $100 spent on Friday's Gift Cards and $28 for every $100 thereafter. For example, the free dessert or appetizer for signing up is worth up to $8. The guest would also receive $20 in Bonus Bites for spending $100 on Gift Cards and receive a coupon worth an additional $8 for having spent $100 as a member of Friday's guest recognition program.

Announced in July of this year, "Give Me More Stripes," (www.givememorestripes.com) the only nationwide in-restaurant guest recognition program of its kind, recently exceeded half a million in membership.

T.G.I. Friday's Gift Cards are available in $10, $25 and $50. The Friday's Gift Cards have no expiration date and no hidden charges. Friday's Bonus Bites cards are redeemable between January 1, 2009 and June 30, 2009.

The gift cards can be purchased at all participating T.G.I. Friday's restaurants or online at www.fridays.com.
