Fall has to be one of our favorite times of the year. Daytime nice, nighttime cool air. Fall leaves. Burger King coupon book specials!
That’s right, come October, Burger King rolls out its coupon books in support of high school students who want to get more education. The company has a little foundation that they support to encourage learning, and to help support it, they do a sort of fund drive by printing up coupon books full of “freebies,” like french fries, ice cream cones, chocolate chip cookies, etc. All in all, a half-dozen freebies.
The coupon books cost $1 and that money is passed along to their scholarship program. Of course, it’s a great deal for the students, and a great deal (if you don’t count the calories) for the buyer. Now here’s the gig — apparently not every Burger King restaurant is participating. We were a bit dismayed to see that the B-Kings in the Quartzsite, Ariz., area are apparently NOT participating this year, but we did put up the son-in-law to snag us a few booklets up in the Pacific Northwest.
Hurry on this one — the outfit usually shuts down the promotion at the end of October.
