Got the day off on Monday? Or maybe a lunch break? Why not celebrate the 234th birthday of our great country by getting some free food? Well, almost free.
At participating locations across the nation, Arby's is giving away the new Junior Deluxe sandwich, with any drink purchase. Coffee and Value Menu drinks don't count; so, buy a bucket of Mountain Dew. Go to Arbys.com for the fine print.
Arby's is adding the Jr. Deluxe sandwich (not pictured here) to its Value Menu starting July 12th. Which means, not only is the sandwich free, with purchase, on July 5th, it's also kind of like a sneak preview. The Arby's Value Menu has items starting at $1.00. The Jr. Deluxe is a small version of the Roastburger, consisting of lettuce, tomato, and mayo, on a toasted, sesame seed bun. It will reportedly sell for $1.49.
TradingMarkets.com says, "Arby's will promote its July 5 Junior Deluxe giveaway with an ad in USA Today, homepage ad campaign on Facebook.com, homepage takeovers on FoxSports.com and Delish.com." Also, as part of their promotional efforts, Arby's has created a Facebook event, so fans can invite their friends. This trend appears to be the crux of modern fast-food promotions. In May, Taco Bueno pushed their "3 for $2" sale on their Facebook page, and you can click here to read a review of that deal.
