It can be pricey to take a family out for treats these days. So we’ve compiled a list of hot summer food deals where you can grab a treat for only a few dollars and save some loonies for a rainy day! As always, things are subject to change and only at participating locations, so be sure to check ahead.

McDonalds | All Summer
Only a dollar, all summer! Small McDonalds soft drinks (or iced coffee) are only $1 during the summer. You can also get a Fruit Splash beverage, a shake or a sundae for $2. Vanilla ice cream cones are only $1 (in-app). 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!

Wendys | All Summer
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!

Burger King | All Summer
If you head to Burger King this summer, you’ll find Pineapple Lemonade and Cherry Limeade for $2. You can also get select flavours of the BK Blast for $3, so keep more money in your wallet!

Days to Mark on Your Calendar

Free Root Beer Day | July 6, 2024
We’ve heard that July 6, 2024, 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!

Free Slurpee Day | July 11, 2024
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.

Free Quarter Chicken | July 18, 2024
So this deal won’t cool you down, but it will warm your heart as you help your community and enjoy a quarter chicken from Nando’s. Nando’s is celebrating Nelson Mandela Day on July 18, 2024. Bring a non-perishable food donation to your nearest Nando’s between 11 am and 1 pm and get a free quarter chicken.

Enjoy the treats of summer while keeping more of the fruits of your labour in your pocket!
