Olive Garden ~ Unlimited Soup, Salad and Breadsticks for $5 (thru Friday)

olive_garden

I didn’t get a chance to take advantage of this offer last week.
Luckily, they have the same offer this week!

Head to Olive Garden through Friday, October 24th and pick up this great lunch deal!

Get their classic lunch combo of unlimited breadsticks, famous house salad and homemade soup for only $5!

Offer valid until 4 p.m.

Go here to print your coupon or show it to your server.
The fine print says only one per table.

Update:  Michelle had this experience, so you might want to call ahead, to see how your location will handle it!
My husband went today with his coworkers. Beware, they may limit this to one offer per table. Seriously. Only one person in your party may get to redeem this offer. They called ahead, spoke with a manager, but still had to re-negotiate once they got there! They agreed on separate checks.
(Thanks, Michelle!)

Update 2:  Mary Ann pointed out that last week the coupon said “one per table”.  This week it says “one per person”, so as long as everyone in your party has one, you should be good.  (Thanks, Mary Ann and Ron!)

Cardinals Win ~ Lots of Great Food Deals Today (Monday, 10/20)

az_cardinals_helmet

All season long, the day after the Cardinals win, we get all sorts of goodies!  How nice is that?

I just ordered pizza for dinner and set it up to be ready at 5:00 for my hubby to pick up on the way home for week.  Dinner….DONE!  Thank you, Cardinals!

The Cards won yesterday, so all of these deals are valid today, Monday, 10/20.

Dunkin Donuts ~ free medium hot or iced coffee the day after a Cards win!  Only good with their app.  Go to DD Perks and you’ll see a free medium hot or iced coffee today.  Since this is only good for AZ people, turn on the location services, so they know where you are.  :)

Sonic ~ half price drinks & slushes the day after a Cards win!  This says Phoenix locations.  Someone left a comment on their Facebook page that they are in Mesa, and Sonic replied that it is good at all Sonic locations.

Papa John’s ~ 50% off all regular priced menu items the day after a Cards win!  Online only.  Use code CARDINALS50

Burger King ~ $1.20 for an original chicken sandwich the day after the cards score over 20 points.  Luckily for us, they did yesterday!  Again, this one says Phoenix area locations.  So, it may not work in Flagstaff or Tucson, but should work anywhere in the valley.
