At Rubio's Fresh Mexican Grill (with multiple locations around the Valley) you'll be able to download a coupon at rubios.com -- redeemable for a free fish taco between 2:30 p.m. and close on Wednesday, January 13 -- if the Cardinals win. And what the heck, if they don't win, you'll still be able to download a coupon for a free drink, also redeemable on the 13th.
Wear a Cardinals jersey, shirt, or hat to Sprinkles Cupcakes in Scottsdale this Sunday, and they'll give you a free red velvet cupcake. Not coincidentally, they'll also be selling those red velvet cupcakes by the dozen, decorated with "Go Cards."
Every Sunday that the Cardinals are in the playoffs, JD's Lounge at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort will be offering two-for-one beers and half-off appetizers like soft pretzels and chicken wings.
