FREE burger @ Whataburger TOMORROW August 2, 2010

Whataburger UPDATE: MEA CULPA! I mistakenly marked this as for today instead of tomorrow… Many thanks to Kristin for letting me know!

FREE dinner TOMORROW NIGHT! Yes, that’s right. No purchase necessary, but you do have to don something orange — anything! Dig through your closet for the Halloween section and you’re all set. (What? No Halloween section? Me neither. But surely there’s something orange in your home or office you could wear. Perhaps a pumpkin trick-or-treat bucket could double as a hat.)

Head to your nearest Whataburger TOMORROW NIGHT between 5pm & 8pm and snag your free Whataburger when you wear orange in honor of Whataburger’s 60th birthday. No coupon or purchase necessary!

Find a Whataburger near you. (Is Whataburger new to you? It is a burger chain located in 10 states across the southern U.S. The next time you’re driving through, stop by and give one a try. Today would be a good day to do that. Hop in the car and take a road trip. Oh, and Stuckey’s is another regional chain to hit if you need to take a break. Really, Mindi, Stuckey’s does exist!)

Good only TOMORROW NIGHT 8/3/10, 5-8pm.

Thanks, Alice H.!


$1 any size drink at McDonald’s July 22, 2010

McDonald'sI don’t know about you, but sometimes I just crave a fountain Diet Coke. There’s something about the extra bubbles and the crisp flavor of a fountain soda when compared to what comes from a bottle or a can… However, it feels like highway robbery when stores try to charge a couple of bucks or more for a little soda!

This summer, enjoy any size fountain drink at McDonald’s for just $1! Just one buckaroo (plus tax) gets me the sweet, bubbly treat I “need” now and then. Ahhh… I think I might take a McDonald’s break this afternoon.

Find a McDonald’s near you. You may want to call first to be sure your location is participating in this deal!
