Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers is celebrating the 92nd birthday of its co-founder, namesake and decorated World War II Veteran, Freddy Simon, with a sweet treat for customers. Through Saturday, February 26, customers can get a single-scoop of the restaurant’s signature chocolate or vanilla frozen custard (served in a cake cone or dish) for just 92¢ at participating locations. Toppings and/or a waffle cone are available at an additional cost. The restaurant is open Sunday through Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday & Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. There are 19 locations in Colorado — click here for addresses. (Two more are expected to open in Grand Junction soon.)
They have the meats…and savings! Arby’s is offering a deal on some its most popular menu items. For a limited time, get a Beef ‘n Cheddar Classic sandwich, Classic Roast Beef sandwich, Crispy Fish sandwich or Loaded Curly Fries for 2 for $5 at participating locations. Get two of the same or mix & match. The savings are in the bag, given some of the sandwiches are around $4 alone. (You must buy two items, to get the discounted price.) If you’re dining alone, save the second sandwich for dinner or lunch the next day. (Although, the second sandwich could also be a midnight snack, right?) A quick spin in the microwave and it’s just as tasty.
Hamburger Stand has a hot deal for those who love their food spicy. For a limited time, every Sunday and Monday, the fast-food joint is serving up its Chili Lovers’ Deal for just $4.99 at participating locations. The meal combo includes a chili cheese dog, chili cheeseburger and chili cheese fries. (With all that heat, you’d think the deal would include a beverage. Unfortunately, it does not.) A beverage will cost you extra. It’s enough food that you might share it with a friend — one gets the dog, the other gets the burger and you can share the fries! There are 6 locations in Colorado — Aurora, Denver, Englewood, Lakewood, Thornton and Westminster.
This new promo from Steak ‘n Shake is sure to shake up your family’s dining budget, but in a good way. Once only available two days a week, kids (12 and under) now eat FREE every day of the week at the popular family-friendly diner. Children can enjoy their favorite Kids Plate for FREE any time of the day, any day of the week. For every $9 spent, one child in your party will get a complimentary Kids Plate. The kid-friendly meals, all of which are served with a choice of fries or applesauce, include the following: Original Steakburger, mini corn dogs, macaroni & cheese, Steakburger Minis, hot dog, grilled cheese and chicken fingers. There are 3 locations in Colorado — Centennial, Colorado Springs and Sheridan. For more Kids Eat FREE deals around town, click here.
SUBWAY always offers a fresh sub at a good value. However, the savings are even more meaty with its latest offer. For a limited time, get any Footlong for just $6 each at participating locations. (The offer excludes Deluxe Footlongs.) There is an additional charge for any extras. The offer cannot be combined with any other discount or coupon. I always love the good ol’ reliable Cold Cut Combo with lots of jalapeños and onions!
I’m always “in the market” for saving a few bucks, when dining out. (Actually, I never dine out without a coupon or promo. With so many offers out there, there’s no reason to ever pay full price.) Through March 26, Boston Market is offering a 2 for $20 Meal Deal. The delicious offer includes two Individual Meals, two drinks and two desserts for only $20. Each Individual Meal comes with a main course option, including rotisserie chicken, turkey or meatloaf, two classic sides and a freshly baked piece of cornbread. (If you’re dining alone, they’re also offering a 1 for $10 Meal Deal — an Individual Meal, drink and dessert for $10.) For locations, click here.
Mmm…it’s Wednesday! For a limited time, KFC is offering a Chicken Fried Steak Meal for $3.99 every Wednesday at participating locations. The meal deal includes chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes (with gravy), coleslaw and a buttermilk biscuit. Most locations will let you substitute the mashed potatoes and coleslaw with different sides — just ask.
If you avoid certain coffee cafés because they’re “too expensive”, you might consider McDonald’s for your caffeinated needs. For a limited time, the fast-food chain is offering any size coffee for $1 or, if your tastes are a bit fancier, get a small specialty drink for $2. The offer is valid at participating locations.
This deal from Burger King is hot…or very cool, depending on your tastes. For a limited time, get any size coffee for just 99¢ — hot or iced. Anytime I see an offer for “any size”, I always think it’s best to get the large for maximum savings. However, it’s not wise, if you’re just going to waste it. On the other hand, ask for an extra cup and pour half of it for a friend or family member. The offer is only valid at participating locations.
Wendy’s is changing the game, when it comes to meal deals — thanks to the sandwich options available to hungry bargain hunters. For a limited time, the quick-service chain is offering a 4 for $4 Meal. Get a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger, Crispy Chicken BLT or Double Stack, 4 chicken nuggets, small fries and small drink at an affordable price — just $4. In my book, any meal deal under $5 with a beverage is always a great value. Plus, unlike other chains, Wendy’s gives you more than one option for the sandwich. (I would also like the option of a small chili rather than the nuggets and fries. Just sayin’. Maybe one day?)
Remember Pizza Hut‘s wildly popular $10 pizza deal? Well, it’s back, but for a limited time. For $10, get a large pizza with any toppings at participating locations. Choose from more than a dozen toppings. Plus, choose any crust — Original Pan, Hand-Tossed or Thin ‘N Crispy. (Note: There is an additional charge for Stuffed Crust or extra cheese.) With no limit, it’s a good excuse for a pizza party at work or home. The offer is good for carry-out only. No matter how you slice it, it’s a great deal — especially if you love lots of toppings on your pizza.
Little Caesars always offers a great value, but it’s now making it even more tasty for bargain hunters. The ready-to-go pizza chain is offering 5 items for $5 each. For $5, get a large Hot ‘n Ready classic pizza, Caesar Wings, four 20-oz. Pepsi products, family-size Cinnamon Loaded Crazy Bites or family-size Bacon Cheddar Loaded Crazy Bites. All of the items are available from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. daily at participating locations, for a limited time. No need to call ahead, no need to wait and no limit. However, the discounted items are available all day, every day by request.
We’ve seen this promo at only one Pizza Hut location, but, if you work or live nearby, it’s a great deal. The Golden location at 17540 S. Golden Rd. serves up a lunch buffet Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. for just $6.99. (Yes, the price went up by a few bucks, but it’s still a bargain.) The all-you-can-eat spread includes salad, pizza, pasta and dessert. (Unfortunately, no drink is included. True cheapskates will stick with water. It’s better for you anyway, right?) Don’t overindulge. You don’t want to leave feeling stuffed, even if it is a bargain buffet. In any case, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth in just a few trips to the buffet bar. Reader Morgen tells me that the same offer is also available at 12947 S. Parker Rd. in Parker.
Double down on this deal from Taco Bell. For a limited time, get a Double Stacked Taco for just $1 at participating locations. Choose from Nacho Crunch, Cool Habanero and Spicy Sweet. Why double stacked? It’s made with a tortilla and crunchy shell, as the “outer wrap” with sauce in between. If you’re really hungry, add some food from its Dollar Cravings menu for a big meal without a big price.
Four dollars seems to be the magical price point for meal deals across the fast-food landscape, lucky for hungry bargain hunters. Carl’s Jr. continues to offer its $4 Real Deal meal. For $4, get a double cheeseburger, spicy chicken sandwich, small fries and 16-oz. drink — for a limited time at participating locations.
