Food deals: Half-price shakes and appetizers

Eat a dozen doughnuts this month, and get a dozen free next month.

It’s Friday, and that means it’s time for food freebies and deals, with some help from our friends at Cities on the Cheap.

If you needed any more temptation to eat holiday sweets, Krispy Kreme is here to provide it. Not only does the baker have holiday doughnuts, it has a holiday deal: Buy a dozen doughnuts at a participating store by Dec. 25 and get a dozen gift tags, each good for a free doughnut in January. So you can eat the first dozen doughnuts and give the rest to your friends. OK, save one for yourself.


We also found these food deals:

And, a few inedible deals:

  • Home Depot hosts a free kids workshop from 9 a.m. to noon on the first Saturday of the month. This Saturday, Dec. 5, kids can build their own wagon.
  • Bass Pro Shops is offering a free 4-by-6-inch photo with Santa, available 5 to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. The store also offers free crafts for kids from noon to 5 p.m. weekends through Dec. 20. 
  • It’s the first weekend of the month, and Bank of America customers can visit museums free through the bank’s Museums On Us program. Just show your Bank of America credit or debit card Saturday or Sunday and get in free to participating museums.
