Mothers Day & Graduation Gift Card Promotions

The holidays are a great time to take advantage of special gift card promotions that take place.  For those hard-to-buy-for people, gift cards are sometimes what they request, but it’s difficult to find a way to save on gift cards. So, I love to find these special promotions as ways to save.

You don’t have to use these promotions just for gifts either – take advantage of the deal to save some money on restaurants or stores you would already be going to and it’s just a way to buy ahead using the gift card & add in some extra savings.

Sonic – Half Price Shakes after 8pm – All Summer Long

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

Sonic Half Priced Milkshakes After 8pm

Sonic has started their awesome milkshake promotion early & are now offering half-price shakes all summer long after 8pm at participating locations. So, if you’re out & about with your kids & enjoying a fun evening, Sonic would be a great ending to your day with half-price shakes.

A quick frugal tip idea for drinking shakes from Sonic (or any other restaurant) for those of you with younger kids. I have found that the “kids sized” shakes and drinks are often just a little lower in price but they may be significantly smaller. So, I’ve started buying my kids a regular shake (which is typically only about $.30-.50 more) & then splitting it between both of them. They end up getting the same amount in their drink, but I pay much less than I would pay for 2 kid-sized drinks! So, try that out the next time you’re at a restaurant & see if it really does work out to be more frugal! They often market items as “kid-sized” to get us to think we’re paying less, when really it’s a better idea to just buy a regular size & split it.
