Comments Off on Sonic Half Price Shakes on Solstice / Mayan Apocalpyse

Sonic’s half price shakes promotion on December 21, 2012, is in honor of the winter solstice, but for anyone shaking in their boots because of the Mayan calendar 2012 apocalypse prophecies, it might be a sweet distraction while we wait to see how it all shakes out…

Get half price shakes at Sonic all day on Friday December 21, 2012, to celebrate the shortest day of the year at participating locations. No coupon is needed, but you need to mention the offer when ordering. Drive by and enjoy the real ice cream shakes on the cheap, in flavors including Chocolate Holiday Mint Shake. That doesn’t sound like the end of the world to me.

And don’t forget the ongoing offer for Sonic Drinks Happy Hour daily from 2- 4 pm, good on Slushes (except CreamSlush Treats), soft drinks like Coke, Sprite, and Dr Pepper, ice teas, and limeades, but usually not valid with combos and Wacky Pack meals.

Although I’m joking about Friday, if you’re concerned about the Mayan calendar prophecy you might be reassured by reading this NASA press release that they’ve issued in advance, dated December 22, 2012:  Why the world didn’t end yesterday.

If you know of any Mayan calendar apocalpyse special deals or events on Friday – or maybe there’s one running at a place where you work – now is not the time to keep it to yourself. Let us know in the comment box below!

Thanks to our prophetic pal Carolyn at Wichita on the Cheap for tipping us off that the Sonic deal is nigh.

Comments Off on Sonic Half Price Breakfast Burritos: September 4

A half price deal on September 4 to celebrate National Back To School Day. It might ease the pain of going back to work too, after the holiday weekend…

Get Sonic Half Price Breakfast Burritos all day on Tuesday September 4, 2012,  at participating locations. No coupon is needed, just drive in. The half price offer runs all day on September 4, according to each location’s opening hours, and the promotion is in honor of National Back to School Day. I’m not sure if the kids are celebrating, although the parents probably are! Either way, 50% off a breakfast burrito is cool school in my opinion.

Find other Food Freebies and Deals this week in our regular round-up post of restaurant deals.

And don’t forget the ongoing offer to get other Sonic Half Price Drinks daily from 2- 4 pm, good on Slushes (except CreamSlush Treats), soft drinks like Coke, Sprite, and Dr Pepper, ice teas, and limeades, but not valid with combos and Wacky Pack meals.

Albuquerque restaurant deals include special discounts or freebies for tax day, including free Panda Express with no purchase needed, and a PF Chang discount, plus deals at Sonic, Arby’s, Rocky Mountain Chocolate, Subway, Pei Wei, and more…

Panda Express free Shanghai Angus Steak on Tax Day, Tuesday April 17 at participating locations. This is for a single serving of the new Panda Express entree, and no purchase is necessary! But you do need the Panda Express coupon and it’s only valid on April 17.

15% off all P.F Chang’s food purchases on April 17.  Dine in or take out. Not valid on beverages, happy hour food, or P.F. Chang’s for Two, but otherwise just turn up with a taxing appetite.   

Sonic Half Price Drinks and Slushes in an all-day happy hour on Tax Day April 17 so you don’t have to sweat the small stuff…

Arby’s Free Curly Fries on April 17 – you need to be a Facebook user to get the coupon, valid for one free value size curly fries.  

Chili’s Grill & Bar Free Appetizer or Dessert when you buy an adult entree from April 16 – 18, using a printable Chili’s tax day coupon or showing it on a smart phone at participating restaurants. According to the PR Newswire press release, to get the coupon you’ll have to be Chili’s email club member (or sign up for Chili’s email club), or get it from Facebook or Twitter. (I don’t see it at time of writing, probably too early yet.)

Two Free Cinnabon Bites  on April 17 – two freebies per person between 6 pm and 8 pm – note those are both PM times, it’s an evening offer – at participating locations.

Brasserie La Provence Wine Dinner on April 17 gets you four courses paired with Louis Bernard French wines for $55. The dinner starts at 6:30 pm. Reserve a table in advance.

Pasión Latin Fusion 50+% Off Either pay $10 for $20 worth of food and drinks, or (for a table of four or more) pay $18 for $40 worth. The limited time deal is via Groupon, then use the certificates through October 17, 2012.

Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory Deal $10 for half-dozen chocolate-covered strawberries (worth $21) or $10 for four caramel apples or candy apples (worth up to $26). You can buy 2 deals plus one as a gift (that’s a lot of candied fruit, people!) in the offer via Groupon for a limited time, and then use the certificates by July 31 at the Cottonwood Mall store. Candy apples could be a nice present for the teacher!

Jane Butel’s Southwest Cooking School 50%+ Off a 2.5 hour cooking demonstration class led by the rather famous Jane Butel, at $30 instead of the usual $65. They’re also offering 50% off a full weekend cooking class in the offer via Living Social, at $525 (usually $1,050), available to purchase for a limited time, then take a cooking class (or give it as a gift) by August 20, 2012.

Pei Wei Asian Diner Free Diner Select with the purchase of an entree when you create a Pei Wei passport or sign in to an existing account by April 19. I haven’t done it yet for this offer, but you usually have to watch a brief video to get the coupon emailed to you, pretty painless.

Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes Seniors Deal on Monday through Thursday from 2 – 5 pm. An email from S&ST tells us that for $6.99, seniors 60+ can get “as much or as little as you like” of salads, soups, pasta, muffins, breads, desserts and free coffee and drinks. No coupon is needed. I’d check with the server that they’re honoring this BEFORE you start to chow down!

Starbucks Petites Deal to get two Petites for $2 until April 22. Although right now I’m pretty annoyed at Starbucks as some head office rep contacted me to offer a giveaway to ABQ on the Cheap readers, and then when I said Yes Please, they decided they didn’t have enough giveaway gift sets after all. Pretty lame behavior and a waste of my time. But it’s still a good Petites deal :-) and it’s not the fault of local locations and the lovely people who work in them!

Ree Drummond Pioneer Woman free talk about her new cookbook The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From My Frontier on Monday April 30 at 6 pm in free Bookworks event at the Simms Center for the Performing Arts Auditorium. You have to get your free tickets in advance, as they have limited space!

Olive Garden  $5  Off  two dinner entrees or $2.50 off one entree if you’re dining alone, using the coupon. If you don’t see the offer at the website page I linked you to, here’s a direct link to the Olive Garden printable coupon, and there’s plenty of time to use this one – it’s valid till May 6.

Get a Carl’s Junior free Oreo Ice Cream Sandwich when you buy any size Southwest Patty Melt Combo. Or use these Carl’s Jr Coupons at participating restaurants:

Auntie Anne’s free Almond Pretzel when you buy a Pretzel Dog and 21 oz. fountain soda or lemonade. Get the coupon by filling in the form at the link and they email it to you in a one-time mailing. If you want to sign up for monthly Auntie Anne’s Pretzel Perks coupons, check the box in the form.

Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen Facebook Freebie for a free Pepsi in medium size with any purchase in April.  You have to ‘like’ them on Facebook to access the coupon, so this one is only for Facebook members.

NOTE: Not all locations may be participating in all offers – call ahead if you want to be sure.

Thanks to our associates at Living on the Cheap for passing on the Starbucks and Pei Wei deals!

I’d want more than free bagels in exchange for a corporate motto, but your mileage may vary. Be warned: You have to use a Facebook app to enter, which I’m reluctant to do, but your mileage may vary there too.

Sonic Wacky Pack Wednesdays

October 5, 2010 by  
Filed under Restaurants & Bars

Comments Off on Sonic Wacky Pack Wednesdays

Sonic Drive-In Wacky Pack Kids’ Meals win an ode of appreciation from our new contributor Joshua, a student at the University of New Mexico.

If you are like me, then you not only love to find good deals, but you like to make a tradition out of any regular weekly deals. My family and I have made a tradition of Sonic Wacky Pack night.

Sonic offers their Wacky Packs for only $1.49 every Wednesday from 5 – 8 pm. Enjoy a hot dog, hamburger, grilled cheese, or corn dog along with tots or french fries and a small soft drink. Chicken strips and cheeseburgers are available for a little extra.  Plus, the $1.49 meal comes with get free Wacky Pack toys and games – we’ve got dozens around the house!

Bring the kids for a cheap meal, or enjoy a Wacky Pack or two yourself. You may be saying, “Aren’t Wacky Packs a kid’s item?” Well, technically you’re correct, but the folks at Sonic Drive-In are happy to serve Wacky Packs to customers of all ages.

We have not failed to miss a single Wacky Pack night for months, and we will continue the tradition proudly. As poor college students, we never miss an opportunity to get a good deal, so when we found out that the entire family could eat on less than $10, we jumped on the opportunity. Of course, it can be embarrassing ordering 10 to 15 Wacky Packs for adults, but it’s amazing the lengths we will go to just to save a couple of bucks!

Sonic Wacky Pack Wednesdays for $1.49 from 5 to 8 pm are available at all Albuquerque Sonic Drive-In locations, but it couldn’t hurt to call and double check before heading down there. Get a cheap family meal, and maybe you’ll make a tradition of it as well.

Taaj Palace coupons Buy one bottle of wine and get 50% off a second bottle, or buy one entree get one 50% off, or get $2 off lunch. Unfortunately you can’t combine the coupons, so you have to pick discount wine OR food per visit (tough choice!) The free coupons via Valpak for Taaj Palace (1435 Eubank NE) currently show as expiring September 17.

70% off Restaurant.com certificates and gift cards till September 7 with the promo code: SAVORY (Enter the code at checkout after putting the certificates in your basket – the discount doesn’t show till then. ) Buy by September 7, no expiration date to use, check details for each restaurant for minimum purchase. Restaurant.comcertificates are already discounted, so with the extra 70% off using promo code SAVORY a dining certificate worth $25 now costs $3 (other denominations are available).

25% off Theobroma Chocolate Strawberries $15 a pound with the coupon instead of  the usual $20, for milk, dark, or white chocolate-dipped strawberries – you can mix up the flavors. One pound minimum purchase, maximum five pounds with the discount. Coupon valid to October 31, 2010. (Ignore the coupon’s expiry date of May 2010, we’ve confirmed with Theobroma Chocolatier and the 25% off coupon is definitely valid to October 31, 2010. )

New Mexico Wine Festival Tickets are $13 for adults, $5.50 for ages 13-20, and kids 12 and under go free! Buy and print tickets in advance to save standing in line at the gate. The festival runs September 4-6, with a schedule of live entertainment and free wine tasting. Soon we’ll all be dancing like the grrrroooovy people at the NM Wine Festival website!

Cold Stone Creamery 2 Ice Creams for $5 with this coupon. You get two Like It sizes with ice cream and one mix-in for $5. It’s on their Facebook page but you don’t have to be a member of Facebook to get the ice cream coupon. (You do need to download the coupon printer application – quick and free – if you don’t have it already).

Free Artisan Breakfast Sandwich for new members in the Starbucks Rewards program if you sign up by September 21. It looks like you have to buy a card with credit to use at Starbucks (minimum $15) to join, so I wouldn’t sign up just for the free sandwich :-) if you’re not a Starbucks regular. But if you were planning to get a My Rewards card anyway, this is the time to do it! Plus you get a free Starbucks drink on your birthday and other loyalty card rewards.

Thanks to Jennifer at Fort Worth on the Cheap for the Starbucks tip!
