Triple your holiday fun at Chili's

Chili's offers three deals next three days

Hark, Holideals!/ Three Chili's steals!/ Good for three days/ Throw cares away!/ Ding dong ding dong!

Chili's recently announced three deals, good from today until December 8, as part of its "Holideals" promotion.

The first deal is a free Molten Cake of your choice with purchase of an adult entree. It is good for dine-in only. There is a limit of one offer per table, and multiple coupons can not be combined. A Full-Size Flatbread qualifies as an entree. The deal is not valid as part of the $20 Dinner for 2.

The second deal is a free Chips and Queso with purchase of an adult entree. Like the first deal, it is good for dine-in only. There is a limit of one offer per table, and multiple coupons can not be combined. A Full-Size Flatbread qualifies as an entree. The deal is not valid as part of the $20 Dinner for 2.

The third deal is a free Jumbo Soft Pretzels with purchase of an adult entree, and Full-Size Flatbread qualifies as an entree. You guessed it--there is a limit of one offer per table, and multiple coupons can not be combined. The deal is not valid as part of the $20 Dinner for 2.

Is the deal worth it? It depends on which deal you go for. I'm a fan of the Molten Chocolate Cake, and this is a good opportunity to try the Pumpkin Spice Molten Cake risk-free--remember, the Pumpkin Spice Molten Cake is available only for a limited time. In my opinion, a deal involving free cake--especially Molten Cake--is always worth it.

The Chips and Queso is really a deal for cheese lovers. The Queso, according to Chili's menu, is "cheese dip with seasoned beef". It's not really my cup of tea--I'm a Guacamole fan--but if you're a cheese lover, this may be the deal that calls your name.

The third deal is good for pretzel lovers. According to Chili's menu, the appetizer is four fresh-baked, giant soft pretzel sticks topped with salt and served with a homemade cheese dip. This doesn't really interest me, but I know my soft-pretzel-fanatic brother would love it. It really depends on whether or not you like soft pretzels.

So on the whole, whether or not the deals are worth it depends on what you like.

Coupons are available on the restaurant chain's web site.

Also worth noting is the Toys for Tots drive on December 9. Ten percent of net sales will go to Toys for Tots. You can download a flyer from the Chili's web site to receive credit for your sale. Chili's is NOT accepting toys.
