Looking for a free fish sandwich this Lenten season?

Primanti's has an app for that. Kind of.

From now through Good Friday, customers who dine at Primanti Bros. during the week are eligible to receive a free fish sandwich on Fridays if they scan their receipt using the restaurant's new rewards app.

“Some people claim the biggest fish sandwich during Lent,” said Toni Haggerty of Primanti's original location in Pittsburgh's historic Strip District. “But we think we're the only ones crazy enough to give it away for free.”

A coupon for the free sandwich will appear on app users' phones on Friday mornings.

Diners must spend at least $5 on food between Saturday and Thursday in order to qualify.

“I've been working here for more than 40 years,” said Haggerty. “And this is the best deal we've ever had. There are a ton of places with a fish fry, but only one place for free fish.”

The app is available through Apple's App Store and the Google Play Store .

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
