It’s really been a crazy week getting back into the swing of things! Classes at the University of Illinois have officially started. I forgot just how exhausting it is when you spend all day on campus going from class to class.
Now that I’m not living in the dorms or participating in a meal plan, I’m on my own in terms of feeding myself. Sometimes my busy schedule doesn’t allow me to come back to my apartment in between classes to grab a meal. Even though I can easily pack a lunch, sometimes I just want to pick something up on campus.
I also try to meet up with different friends during my longer breaks and sometimes we may want to grab coffee or a snack. Unfortunately, being on a college budget restricts the amount of times I can eat out. As someone who enjoys finding good deals, I found the perfect solution for saving money on eating out! I wanted to share this awesome app with all of you that has tons of great deals for the various places on campus.
Hooked is a food app that streams a live feed of exclusive deals at restaurants on campus. It doesn’t have every campus, so be sure to check if yours is one of them.
Once you download the app and enter your school, simply scroll through the feed to find the different deals. If you find a deal that you want to use, just select and show it when you go to pay. It works just the same as a regular coupon because you pay the business directly (not via the Hooked app).
I was just scrolling through my feed now and how can you pass up buy one get on 50% off on froyo and free small fries from Mcdonald’s?
It’s a great app and now I can get deals whenever I eat out so I can save a bit of cash. Be sure to check it out and see if Hooked is on your campus!
