Hot Deal: $7.53 for $20 worth of beer and Mexican food at Bimbo’s Cantina

Here’s a great bargain on beer and food at Bimbo’s Cantina in Capitol Hill, Seattle. Normally, I focus on beer bargains, rather than food, but I made an exception here because the Groupon mentioned in this hot deal requires the purchase of a food item. Here’s what you gotta do, and do it now because the Groupon sale ends today:

  1. Launch Ebates, search for ‘Groupon‘, then launch Groupon from within the app. Ebates is an app that gives you cash back on purchases. The cash back percentage fluctuates, but at the time of writing this post Ebates was offering 6% off Groupon. Check out my post Ebates gives you rebates to learn more, including how to get a $10 sign up bonus!
  2. Search for ‘Bimbos’ within Groupon. You should find the $20 value deal for $12.
  3. Click ‘Buy’, then click ‘Enter Promo/Gift Code’ and type in ‘TAKE20’. This gives you a 20% discount to reduce the price of the Groupon to $9.60. Hurry though, because this discount code expires Sunday January 8.
  4. Go to Bimbo’s Cantina in Capitol Hill, Seattle. It’s a venue best described as
    bimbo-sign
    It’s great to have options

    hipster-Mexican. I recommend going during happy hour, which is 3pm to 7pm Tuesday through Saturday, plus all day Sunday and Monday. During happy hour draft pints are 50 cents off and pitchers are $1 off. I recommend going with an $18 pitcher of one of these beers ($17 during happy hour):

The Groupon requires you to purchase a food item, and there are plenty of tasty, good value options to help soak up that pitcher of beer. The following are offered during happy hour:bimbo-scene

  • Chips and salsa $1
  • Mini cheese quesadilla $3.50
  • Snack size organic bean burrito $3.50
  • Small nachos $5.95, with chicken, beef, or pork $6.95 (I got the beef nachos which were small, but delicious)
  • Taco $2.50

If you go to Bimbo’s on a Thursday, you can use the App-y Hour Special cash back offer from bevRAGE to get $1.50 cash back. To learn more about bevRAGE check out the posts Get paid to drink beer! and bevRAGE Update.

Plus, you’ll get a bonus $2 when you sign up for bevRAGE with referral code XMVRYNYN and redeem your first cash back offer.

Use all of the offers above and you’ll pay just $7.53 for a pitcher of good beer and you get some tasty Mexican food also. It breaks down like this:

Groupon                                                                                                        $12

Groupon 20% discount with promo code ‘TAKE20’                      ($2.40)

Ebates 6% cash back                                                                                ($0.57)

bevRAGE App-y Hour Special on Thursdays                                   ($1.50)

Total after discounts and cash back                                                $7.53

Remember, a 64oz pitcher is equivalent to four 16oz pints. So you’re paying just $1.88 per pint and you get food! Now that’s a best beer bargain!
