It’s not a big cup but you won’t pay a big price either.
Burger King, fresh off its Twitter hacking scandal, has rolled out a promotion to hype its affiliation with Seattle’s Best Coffee. Through March 10, get a small, 12-ounce cup of the smooth roast for 25 cents. And yes, there is a decaf brew, too. The deal includes hot and iced coffee.
At participating Starbucks locations, get a free $5 Starbucks gift card when you purchase any one pound bag of whole bean coffee today. The bags typically sell for between $11.95-13.95. Speaking of coffee, I’ve been digging the 99 cent Turkey Hill 16- ounce deal and the $1 any size McDonald’s deal and the $1 Sheetz any size deal. But I’ve learned that the Sheetz offer ends Wednesday.
The chain is making it up to us, well at least those of us that have a My Sheetz card. For every five coffees you buy while having your card scanned you’ll be entitled to the next coffee for free. The card is free to sign up for and there are tons of benefits, including discounted gas and weekly deals.
Through Tuesday, with your card, get two free hot dogs when you purchase two 20-ounce Pepsi Max bottles.

We had a ton of correct responses last week to the trivia question that asked who first introduced the term “probiotics” in 1953. Chris Faux, of Falls, was the first to respond with Werner Kollath as an answer, and won a free bottle of probiotics from Vidazorb.
