2 ways to get free food in Dallas on Nov. 3

Friday, Nov. 3 is not our birthday and not a major food holiday. But it's a great day to get free food.

Note: Because there's no such thing as a free lunch, both of these deals involve a small purchase of another item. If you're still with us, here's where to get a free doughnut and a free sandwich on Friday, Nov. 3 in Dallas-Fort Worth:

Free doughnut from Dunkin' Donuts

They're calling it Free Donut Friday at Dunkin' Donuts, and darnit if that isn't catchy. Visit any Dunkin' Donuts in D-FW and get a free doughnut if you purchase a beverage. (Make that beverage a coffee, caffeine fiends. Just a recommendation.) The deal is good all day. Find a Dunkin' here.

Free sandwich from Potbelly

This one's a bit complicated. Go with it: If you visit Potbelly Sandwich Shop on Nov. 3 and if you are a Potbelly Perks costumer and if you purchase a Gyro Flats sandwich, you get a second Gyro Flats sandwich for free. That sandwich is made with seared beef and lamb topped with feta, tzatziki, onion and tomato.

How to become a Perks customer? Sign up on Android, iPhone, or at a computer. (Added bonus: New users get a free cookie, says a press release.) The buy-one, get-one deal is only valid in D-FW and only with the Gyro Flats sandwiches. Find a Potbelly here.
