Sizzling summer giveaways and deals
With temperatures soaring and most of the country in the grip of a heatwave there's not much to look forward to, apart from a dip in a pool, watching the tennis in air conditioned comfort or indulging in a coldie at the end of the day, right? Wrong. You won't be the only thing that's sizzling with Grill'd Burgers Meatwave promotion. From Monday 20th January to Sunday 16th February you can snap up a free burger or other delicious deals as the mercury rises.
It's pretty simple really. Every Monday during the promotion period you can head to the special Meatwave website to find out what the 'target temperature' is for your city. Once that temperature is reached the deal for that week is 'unlocked' and kicks into action.
To claim your freebie you need to log on to Facebook,'like' Grill'd Burgers on their Facebook page, and register your details and the location of your nearest Grill'd store. You'll be sent a confirmation email which you'll need to print and take with you, along with ID, to a store to collect your Meatwave card. You can then use the card for special weekly freebie deals.

The details of each week's target temperature and special deal will be a closely guarded secret until each Monday morning. The deal for this week (beginning Monday 20th January) is a free burger from a selected menu. Yep, that's right - a free burger. Lunch sorted for nix, nada, nothing, or ekkert if you happen to be Icelandic. Target temperatures for the first week have already been reached in Queensland (not North Queensland, which has a separate temperature target), Victoria and Western Australia so what are you waiting for?
