Welcome to TRS Healthcare’s 2018 list of Nurses Week freebies, deals and discounts!
In preparation for the big event, we posted an “Open Letter to Businesses”, asking them to come up with a special for Nurses Week, using some lighthearted humor but unfortunately, received no responses to that. It’s possible the mechanics behind offering a national promotion move slowly and therefore we may still be pleasantly surprised. Please feel free to share our post around and maybe we can encourage a reaction through greater coverage. You can find it here on our Facebook page.
As we still have some time before the actual dates roll around, we will be updating our list as we go so please check back often. Here is what you can expect, so far:
Disney World – The happiest place on Earth loves their nurses. They are offering discounts to nurses (also teachers & military personnel) at the Swan and Dolphins resorts. Call 800-227-1500 and mention the code DREAMS. Be sure to also mention you are a nurse!

We reached out to Subway, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Starbucks, Gold’s Gym, Burger King, Taco Bell, Taco Bueno, Chili’s, Logan’s Roadhouse, Sonic Drive-In, Raising Cane’s, Pizza Hut and 1-800 Flowers, with no response through their Social Media channels.
A few did respond, however:
Chick-fil-A kindly let us know that because their restaurants are “are independently operated, it is the franchised Operator’s decision as to which local events and promotions he or she would like to be involved with. Please contact your local Chick-fil-A Restaurant for more information.”
Applebee’s Grill & Bar helpfully said that their “promotions vary by location, so your neighborhood Applebee’s is the best place to start. You can reach us toll-free at 888-592-7753 and we’ll be happy to check with any Applebee’s near you.”
I think it best for you to reach out individually to the franchise nearest you and ask if they would do something for local nurses; this way, you yourself can benefit from their generosity. Please also spread the word and send us a picture of you enjoying a Nurses Week treat so we can give credit to the individual business honoring you during your week of appreciation!
Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers responded by way of their PR Director, who informed me that “We as a corporation are not doing anything for Nurse’s Week.”
They may also be doing something locally so don’t count them out just yet! You can ask by way of their website: www.freddysUSA.com
