Now TWO kids eat free at Boston Market


As "kids eat free" deals go, Boston Market's latest is pretty darn awesome.

From now until October 31, all day long and every day of the week, two of your kids will receive a free meal for every adult meal purchase of $6 or more. If you buy a family meal, you can get four free kids' meals! But wait, it gets even better: they define "kid" as anyone 14 years old or younger!

Kids meals generally cost around four bucks and include an entree, small side, cornbread and a drink. Find your closest Boston Market here.
