*Expired* Schwan’s $10 Free Food Promotion

by Freebies4Mom on August 1, 2009 12:15 pm

Schwan’s is offering $10 of free food, and they definitely have a lot of items you could order under $10. The first 500,000 new customers after noon on Saturday, August 1 will receive $10 of FREE FOOD from Schwan’s.

As you can imagine, their website is busy, but I just placed my order for 8 – 2 oz. mini steaks for $9.99 to be delivered on Monday. Please let us know if you get through and what you order by leaving a comment. Schwan’s says that “no purchase is necessary” and there is no delivery fee so this does look like a great offer for those who are new customers and within a Schwan’s delivery route. Depending on where you live, you may have to pay sales tax. You can just enter your zipcode if you aren’t sure if Schwan’s delivers to your area.

Everything seemed to work fine for my order (chocolate chocolate chip muffins), except that I ordered on AUG 7 and STILL have not received delivery!

I finally received my order, 3.5 weeks after they said it would arrive. When I checked out, my total was only 8 cents, but when it was delivered, it was $1.08, so the deliveryperson added that delivery fee, I guess. Still, a buck is not bad for all those hamburgers. ๐Ÿ™‚

So excited that I qualify for this. My grandmother used Schwan and I can remember our driver, Kevin, would always give me a Drumstick every time even if my grandma didn't order anything! I used to LOVE thier chicken patties!! Thanks for posting!!

I haven't received my order either :(I placed it on 8/02 and was told it would come on 8/07. Out of curiousity, I looked at their website a couple of days ago, and they now said it would come today, but nope. I've heard nothing.. no emails, no phone calls, no explanation. My friend received their order the day it said he would, and he also received a call ahead of time. (And they've been showing up every week since, like someone else mentioned in the comments.)

I received my pot pies on 8/13 as scheduled. I called to find out when it would arrive as there was no delivery time stated. The delivery guy showed up at 6pm and gave us our product. He said that he will visit us every week to see if we need anything. I hope he is not too aggressive. Haven't tried to pies yet…hope they are good.

My order never arrived as scheduled on 8/11/09. I sent an email to Schwans customer service inquiring on the status. I am still waiting ot hear back from them. I don't know what happened. I placed my order on-line and received a confirmation it went through and scheduled a delivery for 8/11….

I received my order right on time and the driver also gave us 2 ice cream sandwiches and 2 ice cream cones for free! And no pressure to order anything else either, although he was so nice and they were so yummy I might just order again sometime. I guess he knew how to "kill them with kindness" ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks, this is one of my favorite freebies so far!

Also forgot to mention, the delivery guy was very friendly. Left a catalog and a sticker with the date of his next run. Explained to me that he'd be buy just to see if there was anything we wanted and reassured me that we didn't have to ever order anything again.

Jon, Jami, Jasmine, and Baby August 7, 2009 at 11:48 am

Ordered ours. Didn't have to pay ANY fees. Came just as scheduled. Was shocked at how small amount of food we got for that much money. Will probably never actually order at cost from Schwan's. Too expensive! Can't wait to try it though….it was free! That's all that matters to me! ๐Ÿ˜€

Jennifer August 7, 2009 at 10:29 am

My Schwan's driver was a no-show as well. I suspect he didn't care to stop by because he wouldn't be making any commission off of the order. Customer service said they'd forward my concerns to the local manager but I don't have high hopes.Jennifer, fortworthonthecheap.com

Anonymous – They delivered catalogs along my route as well – this was a special "catalog delivery only" trip, they were not delivering any orders. You shouldn't feel pressured at all to place another order. If you feel that the Schwan's employee was being rude, by all means contact Schwan's to complain. I don't think this is the intention of Schwan's, they want to leave a positive impression on their new customers!-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom

I ordered some ice cream and the delivery man called me yesterday morning at around 10am to ask when I wanted it delivered. He arrived at 4pm (our agreed upon time) and handed me a catalog. He wanted me to order something else. I told him I'd take a look and maybe place an order in the future. He went back to his truck and then told me the ice cream wasn't on his truck – he'd have to come back tomorrow. So now I have to wait around ANOTHER day for the delivery. I strongly suspect he's fishing around for an order. I'm not pleased at all.

I just ordered coffee for 9.99, no delivery fee, no tax. However I did have to choose option #1 and click for them to call me in 2 days to arrange delivery. If I opted for them to leave my order they would charge me $4.99 for use of an insulated freezer bag.

Thanks for deal! I ordered 6 cheese Tortellini with no delivery!A good friend swears by Schwan's so if we like it we may keep ordering. Do they hound you to order? Do they linger when delivering? I don't want to be bothered and pressured to keep ordering or have them do a presentation either!

I also got in on this one- I ordered the Pizza Flavored Snack Rolls (pizza rolls are a staple in my house) and don't have to pay a cent! I've been wanting to try Schwan's again as an adult, but wasn't aware that they delivered in my area. I was also able to sign up my BFF who lives near me- we should both get our deliveries this afternoon. This has got to be one of my favorite promotions this year!

A reply to Kate and others re: tipping:Unlike some food delivery companies in which the drivers only make an income based upon the tips they receive, Schwan's drivers are paid an hourly wage, at least minimum wage. Depending on the service you receive from the Schwan's driver, it shall be at your discretion to tip or not. I can tell you the objective of the Schwan's driver is to leave a lasting impression upon you so that you feel inclined to order again and again and again and…….

I got through when the offer first opened at 1:00 PM Eastern time. I ordered the mini corn dogs – 32 mini corn dogs for $9.99. No deliver fee. There is 2 cents sales tax in North Carolina which I'll have to pay when they personally deliver it next week. My total is 2 cents. My mother lives in New York. She ordered the same thing. Again no delivery fee. They'll be personally delivering it next week as well, but since she lives in New York, there's no sales tax either, so its totally free.

Heidi – I'm sorry the $10 of free food offer isn't working for you. Please try it again, sounds like some said it didn't work when they entered their zip. But if they just went and picked out the food they wanted to order then checked out as a first-time customer it did work. I think this promotion is still going on, but it sounds like due to the high traffic they are getting today there may be some delays/glitches in the ordering process. Please be patient and try again or call Schwan's Customer Service at 1-888-SCHWANS. Good luck!-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom
