Food & Drink
The temperature outside is heating up, so that makes this deal extra cool. Today, Thursday, May 25, SONIC Drive-In is offering 50% off shakes and ice cream slushes — all day. The limited-time Ice Cream Slushes flavors include grape, blue coconut, orange, cherry, blue raspberry and strawberry. Remember, the chain offers the same deal after 8 p.m. every day for the summer. Enjoy!
It doesn’t get much better than a tall glass of iced tea on a hot summer day. Teavana is celebrating the first official Summer “Fri-YAY” (that’s what they’re calling it) with a FREE iced tea. On Friday, May 26, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., choose from Beach Bellini, Strawberry Daiquiri or Piña Colada (24-oz.), while supplies last. The offer requires this invitation, which you can print or show on your smartphone. Inspired by sun-drenched summer parties and the popularity of craft cocktails, the tea shop is taking over happy hour with three, new cocktail iced tea blends, including Strawberry Daiquiri, Piña Colada and Mandarin Mimosa – joining returning favorite Beach Bellini. (Note: Mandarin Mimosa is not included in the FREE offer.) For locations, click here.
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. 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 us the same offer is also available at 12947 S. Parker Rd. in Parker.
With summer just around the corner, Carrabba’s Italian Grill is inviting customers to enjoy its Sangria Sunday with endless sips of one of the season’s signature thirst-quenchers. Starting Sunday, May 21, Carrabba’s will offer bottomless glasses of sangria for $12.99 with purchase of an entrée. Available all day, Sangria Sunday features three fruit-packed flavor variations: Blueberry, Peach and Red Sangria. The offer is available at the Aurora, Lakewood, Louisville and Westminster locations. Remember, it’s only valid on Sundays. Please don’t drink and drive — it’s just not worth the risk!
Cheers! This summer, The Passport Program is back with 2-for-1 drinks at 68 Denver restaurants, bars, breweries and wineries. Each Denver Passport is $25, with a value of more than $350 in “booze savings.” The Passport is now on sale and valid from May 26 to September 4. Purchase passports online — plus $2.95 shipping. Each passport is valid for one twofer at each establishment. For a complete list of participating locations, click here and scroll down. The books are very popular and often sell out quickly, so don’t wait too long to join the party. (There are also Passports for Boulder, Fort Collins and Colorado Springs.) As always, please don’t drink and drive…it’s not worth the risk.
The wait for watermelon season is officially over. To celebrate the start of summer, On The Border Mexican Grill & Cantina is serving up its famous Watermelon Margarita for just $4 every Thursday — through August 31. (If you’re really thirsty, sip on a grande-size watermelon margarita for $5.) Combine the deal with its complimentary endless chips and salsa for a truly frugal fiesta. As always, please don’t drink and drive. There are locations in Aurora, Colorado Springs, Golden, Highlands Ranch and Loveland.
This is the perfect combo for a “cheap” night out — dinner and a FREE movie. Through June 18, when you purchase a $25 limited-edition, movie-themed gift card at Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews, receive a code for a FREE ticket (up to $10) to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. (You must redeem the code online and print your ticket by July 2. The ticket itself expires July 9.) You can purchase the special gift card in the restaurant or online. If your family dines at Red Robin often, why not “pre-pay” for a few meals and get FREE movie tickets in the process? (Plus, if you’re planning on purchasing $50 or more in gift cards, it would be wise to purchase multiple limited-edition gift cards in $25 increments. Otherwise, you’re just passing up FREE movie tickets.) There are 25 locations in Colorado. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales opens May 26.
This deal is full of flavor and savings. Through May 28, Popeyes is offering its $5 Flavor Favorites menu at participating locations. The deal includes the choice of a main entrée, two sides, buttermilk biscuit and dipping sauce — all for $5. For the entrée, choose two pieces of bone-in-chicken, three chicken tenders or a quarter pound of popcorn shrimp. Its Signature Sides menu includes cole slaw, Cajun fries, mashed potatoes, red beans & rice, green beans, Cajun rice, corn on the cob, macaroni & cheese, jambalaya and onion rings. It’s definitely enough food to satisfy any hungry bargain hunter.
Really, really love Chick-fil-A? Here’s your opportunity to get your fill of its “chicken goodness” and have some fun at the same time. Chick-fil-A will award 52 FREE combo meals (valued at $250) to the first 100 guests at its new location at Aspen Grove in Littleton at 7301 S. Santa Fe Dr. #900 on Thursday, May 18 — featuring the chain’s Heritage restaurant design that showcases handmade, authentic materials for a vintage-inspired interior. The new location also houses a two-story interactive indoor play area for children and offers FREE Wi-Fi. You must be 18 years or older to participate. (Each person receives a digital offer card loaded with a one-year supply of free meals — each consisting of a chicken sandwich, medium waffle potato fries and medium beverage.) Chick-fil-A’s “First 100” events are so popular that a registration process is in place, including official rules. [Read more…] about Littleton: First 100 Get 52 Meals at New Chick-fil-A
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. Maybe one day?)
Everyone loves pizza, so that make this deal extra delicious! When you purchase $25 or more in gift cards for graduates at Pizzeria Locale through Friday, June 2, get a buy-one-get-one FREE Classic Pizza on your next visit. Simply bring in the gift card receipt for redemption before Friday, June 30. (Shh! We don’t think they’ll know, if the gift card is for a graduate, anyone else or yourself.) There are two locations in Denver — 550 Broadway and 3484 W. 32nd Ave.
The deal has officially been confirmed. If you need another reason to cheer on our Colorado Rockies, Taco Bell is again offering its popular taco promo this season — through October 2. The day following a game in which the Rockies score 7 runs or more (win or lose), score 4 tacos for $2 (reg. $1.29 x 4 = $5.16) between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. at participating locations. Limit one special per person.
A family of four could eat dinner for under $10 and probably still have a few tacos left over. (MHOTC Tip: The promo time overlaps for one hour from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. with the fast-food chain’s daily Happier Hour promo, which runs from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. During those hours, get a medium drink for $1, too.) Now that’s savings we can go to bat for anytime! Go, Rockies!
If you love BBQ, you’ll want to get your hands on this deal. Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is kicking off National Barbecue Month by offering lots of saucy savings. Its first-ever Barbecoupon booklet is now available for $10 at participating locations, offering exclusive access to FREE barbecue and beverages, as well as discounts every month starting May 1 through the summer. Here are the FREE items included in the booklet: pulled pork sandwich, kid’s meal, pulled pork slider, pulled pork taco and Big Yellow Cup.
