McDonald’s 49/59 Cent Hamburgers/Cheeseburgers

Just wanted to be sure all CheapoLifers know about the Tuesday night deal at certain McDonald’s restaurants: 49 cent hamburgers and 49 cent cheeseburgers. This is typically a 3-hour weekly promotion, valid from 5:00-8:00PM.

I first became aware of this special 17 years ago when I lived in Hays, Kansas. Both McDonald’s locations offered 29 cent hamburgers and 39 cent cheeseburgers on Tuesday nights. Food price inflation later pushed the price to 39 cent hamburgers/49 cent cheeseburgers and finally to the current 49 cent hamburgers/59 cent cheeseburgers. Doing a quick search online shows these McDonald’s are still hosting the weekly Tuesday night hamburger and cheeseburger sale. So are several other locations in the region.

This is one of those McDonald’s deals that you’ll only find in certain states and cities. It’s not likely to be advertised, except on local radio, television, newspapers, and coupon magazines. It’s not available everywhere. At this price, it’s worth a call or visit to your local McDonald’s to see if they offer this or a similar promotion. It may be offered on Monday, Wednesday, or Thursday nights. Not likely on weekend nights, due to the fact that most McDonald’s restaurants are usually very busy during these times. Check around and find out!

Kroger $3.99 Blue Bell Ice Cream Half Gallons

I love Blue Bell ice cream! For one thing, their containers are still a full 1/2 gallon. Used to be, 64 ounces was the standard size for ice cream. But then, “package shrinking” became a way of life in the food industry. Ice cream containers were first shrunk to 56, then to just 48 ounces! Blue Bell has bucked this trend, continuing to offer their ice cream in standard 1/2 gallon containers.

This ice cream is delicious, by the way! Special flavors like Italian Cream Cake, Butter Crunch, and Strawberry Cheesecake rotate monthly. Plus several other flavors that are available year round like Banana Split, Homemade Vanilla, Cookies ‘n Cream, and my personal favorite: Moo-Llenium Crunch!

The usual price is around $7.00 per half gallon. This week, Kroger has it on sale for just $3.99! This is as cheap as it gets, folks. If you love Blue Bell ice cream, now is the time to stock up. If you’ve never tried it before, here’s your chance to sample Blue Bell at an unbeatable price.

Sale price valid January 28-February 3, 2015 at participating stores. Blue Bell not available and/or sale dates may vary in some regions. Most Kroger locations will be open regular hours on Valentine’s Day (Saturday, February 14) and Presidents Day (Monday, February 16.)
