The Best St. Patrick's Day and March Madness Food Deals
It's quite a hectic time for food freebies and special restaurant deals—and that's a very good thing for consumers! This week, which kicked off with Pi Day promotions and $3.14 pizzas, and then free Dairy Queen ice cream, continues on with a wide range of deals for St. Patrick's Day and the March Madness college basketball tournament. Here's where to score.
Bruegger's Bagels: On Wednesday and Thursday—March 16 and 17—Bruegger's is selling green bagels, and customers can download a coupon from the company website for $2 off a bagel bundle, which consists of 13 bagels and two tubs of cream cheese.
