In my local Arby's (Boise, ID), there is a display for the a free sandwich for joining the "Red Hat Loyalty Program." Text 'arbys' to 22828. You will get back a text message asking for your email. Once you reply, they send an email within a few hours for a free classic roast beef or beef n' cheddar sandwich. Each barcode is unique and one-time use. They automatically enroll you in email and possibly text message promos, so unsubscribe if you don't want the spam. Here's the email content:

As always, YMMV. To those who want to TD, I realize it's processed fast food, it will cause cancer, no HDMI kills the deal, etc. etc. But free is free.
