Comments Off on Arby’s 64 Cent Beef Sandwich & Free Tea Day

Get an Arby’s Roast Beef Classic Sandwich for 64 Cents on Monday July 23 with the coupon and free tea at McAlister’s Deli on Thursday July 26. If you missed our Food Freebies & Deals post on Friday, here’s a reminder of two great food deals this week.  

Arby’s celebrates its 48th birthday, and as the fast food chain was founded in 1964, the price of the sandwich is 64 cents on July 23 with the coupon. That’s retro pricing for you! The offer is on the Arby’s Facebook page and you’re supposed to click on the timeline selecting FOUNDED instead of NOW to get the coupon, or by scrolling all the way back to 1964. Yeah, right. If you’re not on Facebook or the Facebook Timeline still traumatizes you, I’ve done the work for you. Here’s the Arby’s coupon for a Roast Beef Classic Sandwich for 64 cents on July 23.

Also it’s McAlister’s Deli Free Tea Day on Thursday July 26.  Get a free 32 oz. cup of McAlister’s Famous Sweet Tea at participating loctions on Thursday July 26 only, with no purchase necessary. The Albuquerque McAlister’s Deli at 2200 A Louisianna Blvd NE sent me an email about it, so I know they’re participating!

Comments Off on Starbucks BOGO Free Holiday Drinks

Starbucks Free Holiday Drink Starbucks Holiday drinks are on BOGO free special if you go at the right time… and take a friend! Or don’t, and keep both drinks to yourself, but you can’t blame me for the sugar rush.

Starting on Thursday November 17, get a free Starbucks holiday drink when you buy one holiday drink between 2 – 5 pm each day until November 20.

Holiday drinks include Eggnog Latte, Peppermint Mocha and the new skinny Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulee Latte, and Gingerbread Latte. I can practically smell those flavors, and just typing the names of the drinks gets me in the seasonal spirit!

The Starbucks holiday drink BOGO free offer is available between 
2-5 pm each day from Thursday November 17 to Sunday November 20, 2011.

I get the impression that the freebie is in every Starbucks location, but I can’t guarantee everything in the universe, much as I’d like to. So call ahead if you want to be sure your local Starbucks is participating.

Albuquerque restaurant deals this week include free tacos, free coffee, and specials from El Pinto, Say it With Cake, KFC, Denny’s, and more. There’s even a single day shrimp sale special, which is better written than said out loud.  

Whole Foods Half Price Shrimp Today only, Friday November 12. Medium size cooked shrimp is $5.99 a pound in today’s shrimp sale (why does ‘today’s shrimp sale’ make me laugh?). Shrimp is usually $11.99 a pound so that’s $6 off and you can buy it thawed or frozen. Time to stock up the freezer?  Everyone else will probably be doing that so there’s a limit of 10 pounds per customer. Sale is at both the Albuquerque Whole Foods Market (Indian Plaza at 2103 Carlisle Blvd. NE & Academy store at 5815 Wyoming Blvd NE).

Two Free Tacos from Jack in the Box on Tuesday November 16 after 2 pm. No purchase needed and one freebie per person while supplies last at participating locations. Remember – the tacos giveaway is from 2 pm onwards!

Burger King Free Coffee Fridays During breakfast hours every Friday to the end of November. NO purchase necessary to get a free 12 oz cup of Seattle’s Best Coffee at Burger King!

KFC Free Side and Drink with the coupon when you buy a Doublicious sandwich till November 14. Limit one per person.

The voucher via Albuquerque Living Social is available for purchase till Sunday November 14, and it’s valid till May 15, 2011. (If the link requests your email address in order to see the deal and you don’t want to give it, bypass it by scrolling down to Terms and Conditions at the bottom, click that, then click Today’s Deal on the next page!)

El Pinto BOGO Free for Veterans Active military and veterans with ID get a free entree at El Pinto with the purchase of another till Thursday November 18.

Golden Corral Military Appreciation Monday Veterans and active duty military members dine free on November 15  from 5 – 9 pm. There are 3 Golden Corral restaurants in the Albuquerque area; all are participating.

Pizza Hut Deal 2 medium pizzas with up to 3 toppings, for $6 each. This is a limited time offer till November 20, and according to Pizza Hut on Twitter it’s good on dine in, carry out, or delivery. You have to buy TWO pizzas to get the $6 price – a nice idea for date night?

50% off Lumpy’s Burgers Pay $12 for $24 worth of restaurant certificates (2 x $12 certificates) valid at the 5240 Central SW location until March 31, 2011. Use the CityDeals certificates just like cash, see the deal info for other details.

Denny’s Free $5 Gift Card with a $25 gift card purchase. If you buy the Denny’s gift card card online there’s a $1.95 shipping and handling charge, so do yourself a favor and buy it a Denny’s restaurant to save the bucks!

It’s valid until November 25, 2010, or until the 500,000 free drinks are redeemed, whichever comes first.  Note that this means the coupons are redeemed, not just printed out. So after printing you have to claim your free Frutista Freeze fast. Once they’ve run out, a note to that effect will be at the Taco Bell coupon page.

One Up Elevated Lounge Tasty Tuesdays  $1 for four wings and free pool with the purchase of a regular menu item (both from 8pm) plus drinks specials on Tuesdays.

Savoy Bar & Grill Italian Wine Tasting on November 20 at 3 pm. The Italian wines are paired with “small bites” and the wine tasting costs $30 per person, plus tax and tip. Reservations required.

Taco Bell Free Frutista Freeze

Filed under Food, Freebies, Restaurants & Bars

Comments Off on Taco Bell Free Frutista Freeze

Popping this offer up pronto as Taco Bell only has 500,000 free Fruitista Freezes to give away – which sounds like a lot, but if we apply ourselves diligently we can probably glug down a good percentage of those in Burque alone.

Here’s the Taco Bell coupon for a free Orange ‘n Creme Swirl Frutista Freeze, good for one freebie per person from participating locations. It’s valid until November 25, 2010, or until the half a million free drinks are snapped up, whichever comes first.  Once the half million coupons are redeemed, a note to that effect will be at the Taco Bell coupon page.

So don’t hang around to print and redeem – if you print it out but don’t redeem it before the 500,000 freebies are claimed, the coupon is void. Go claim your free Taco Bell Orange ‘n Creme Swirl Frutista Freeze before it melts!

At time of posting, the deal is still sitting there, glistening away in a very tempting manner.

Note: Not all locations may be participating in this offer. Be sure to call ahead before attempting to redeem your coupon! 

Thanks to Teresa at Palm Beach on the Cheap for passing on the tip.
