It can be pricey to take a family out for treats these days. So we’ve compiled a list of hot summer deals where you can grab a treat for only a dollar or two and save some loonies! As always, things are subject to change and only at participating locations.
All Summer Long
Only a dollar, all summer! Medium McDonalds soft drinks (or iced coffee) are only $1.29 during the summer. You can also get a McCafe Real Fruit Smoothie or a Coffee Iced Frappe for $2. Vanilla ice cream cones are only $1.29 and you can splurge on a sundae for $2.
But you know what these deals really mean? Buy an orange pop and vanilla ice cream, and you can get a creamsicle float for only $2.29!
One of my favourite treats as a kid was malted ice cream. No one seems to know what that is anymore, so I’m probably just showing my age. BUT, the Wendy’s Frosty comes close enough for me and it’s only 99¢ all summer long. Delicious!
If you head to Burger King this summer, you’ll find $2 Mini Shakes and $1 soft serve ice cream. Shakes are notoriously expensive, but this way you get a little treat and keep more money in your wallet!
Days to Mark on Your Calendar
Of course, the 7th month and 11th day has to be 7-Eleven Day! They offer their FREE Slurpees from 11 am – 7 pm, while supplies last.
When: July 11
We’ve heard that July 20 is Free Root Beer Day! Sure, this might be just an arbitrary day made up by A & W, but if they’re giving away our favourite root beer, we’re in!
When: July 20
Enjoy the treats of summer while keeping more of the fruits of your labour in your pocket!
