This week (thru 4/25), Dairy Queen is offering buy-one-get-one for 25cent Blizzards! No need to bring a coupon — just show up! Let’s think about this one, folks. All you have to do is ask them to put a lid on the 2nd Blizzard and you’ll have bliss in the freezer anytime you want it…

Find a DQ near you.
