wendy's spca

Even if you don’t have a pet but love animals,

Even if you don’t love animals but love Wendy’s,

Purchase your Wendy’s Frosty Key Tag for $1 and receive a free Jr Frosty with every purchase, until the end of December. All proceeds benefit a worthwhile cause: the Richmond SPCA, a no-kill shelter. You can buy the tags at Wendy’s locations, the SPCA, and Holiday Barn Pet Resorts. The Frosty tags are also available online in multiples of 5 for $5.42.

I’m a big fan of the SPCA; our grey tabby is an alum. This deal seems like a win-win, except for perhaps your waistline!

Our wonderful Adoption Partner Wendy’s has launched a special fundraising campaign to benefit the Richmond SPCA and the homeless dogs and cats in our care. Today through March 28, Wendy’s will sell special $1 key tags good for a chocolate or vanilla Jr. FrostyTM with every purchase that you make through December 31, 2009! All proceeds from this amazing offer benefit orphaned pets at our Robins-Starr Humane Center. Don’t delay, as supplies are limited, and they will go fast. They make great kids’ party favors, Valentines for your child’s classmates and friends, prizes for employees, presents for family or coworkers and more!

Also, if your pet is due for their rabies vaccine, take them to the Short Pump Petco on Sunday February 15 to receive the shot for $5. The clinic runs from 2:30-3:30 pm and is offered by LuvMyPet.com. (Flyer also mentions a $2 medical waste disposal fee.)

11331 W Broad St, Glen Allen

I’m trying something new this week – collecting the small, random bargains I run across in the course of a week into one weekly post “Bargain Bits,” and adding to the post as I find more. (This is instead of flooding feed-readers with piles of one-sentence posts.) I welcome any feedback.

This is also the perfect place to share any deal tips you might have!


Kroger has 18oz boxes of Cheerios for $1 each when you buy 4 ($2 apiece for lesser quantities). This is part of a General Mills deal – buy any 4, get $4 off your order, limit 1 per order.
(These are the big boxes, reg. $3.99. Don’t forget to use your manufacturer’s coupons – I had a $1.50 off 4 Catalina coupon, so $2.50 for 4 boxes!)

Ukrops has frozen turkeys on sale for $.37/lb, with an additional $20 purchase (Limit 2).

Go here to print an Arby’s coupon for a free roast beef sandwich with any purchase through 12/14. (Don’t forget about the free shake for signing up for Arby’s Extras too!)

Some Targets around town have the Rose Petal Cottage marked down to $42.48. Or you could stalk it on Amazon (current price is $33.99, with free shipping!)

It’s been awhile since I posted a fast food freebie, so here you go:
Sign up for Arby’s Extras and get a coupon for a free medium mint chocolate swirl shake.

Just be aware you’re signing up for Arby’s email list-

As a member, you will periodically receive emails about the best Arby’s has to offer! That means you’ll be the first to hear about our new menu items and offerings. Plus, we will send you special member-only coupons!

chickfila election day

Sure there’s a lot to be said for civic responsibility and making your voice heard, but did you know your “I Voted” sticker is also valuable because it gets you free food?? Almost a whole days’ worth! So be in line to vote at 6am tomorrow (November 4) and you could enjoy the following “free for voters” menu:

Free tall brewed coffee at Starbucks
Free star-shaped sprinkle doughnut at Krispy Kreme

Free taco at California Tortilla
Another free cup of coffee at Books A Million

Free chicken sandwich from Chick-Fil-A
Free scoop of ice cream from Ben & Jerry’s

Notes: Chick-Fil-A promotion runs from 10:30am-8pm, and Ben and Jerry’s is 5-8pm. Others are all day, as far as I know. Chick Fil A requires you to turn in your sticker to get your sandwich. You don’t need a sticker at Ben & Jerry’s.

Despite all the publicity and promotions, I have yet to try McDonald’s Southern Style Chicken Biscuit. But I have another chance to get it for free. This time ’round, you can register for a printable coupon to get a free southern style chicken biscuit or sandwich with the purchase of any medium or large beverage. Coupon is valid through 9/1 and must be printed in color.

I’m still out of luck since I currently only have black and white printing capability. It’s probably for the best.

Edited to add: And for those who receive the Sunday paper, there’s a tear-out coupon in this Sunday’s Parade section
