The Ikea “eat for free” deal returns this long holiday weekend. You can deduct the cost of your meal from a housewares purchase of $150 or more before tax on Saturday (Aug. 31) through Monday (Sept. 2). Here's how it works: 1. Purchase your meal in the restaurant. Total can include a whole family's dining experience.
2. Receive a coupon with your receipt. 3. Give your coupon and receipt to the check-out cashier and receive the total amount of your meal deducted from your purchase of over $150. There are some restrictions, such as: the meal must be consumed on-site and only one receipt per purchase can be applied. Visit the Ikea website at Ikea Tampa for more details and restrictions. Tampa's Ikea store is at 1103 N. 22nd St., near Ybor City.
