Strange Special Offers from Fast Food Places

Panda ExpressEvery so often, I try and clear out my inbox so I can share all the deals with you. This time around, I’ve found some rather strange special offers that are taking place at fast food restaurants. Target has an odd thing to check out as well. I’m not sure if any of these special offers will end up saving you money. That being said, they are interesting to take a look at anyway.

Panda Express wants you to vote for your favorite kind of rice. Does your family prefer the Classic Fried Rice or the Brown Fried Rice? Cast your vote by visiting a Panda Express and purchasing the rice that you like best. You can do this as often as you like from now through August 31, 2013. The rice that wins will stay on the menu.

Subway has a “Partner Up” sweepstakes type thing that you can enter. It is connected to the new Lone Ranger movie that hit theaters on July 3, 2013. Someone will win “Cash, Rides, Adventures, and More”.

There is more than one way to enter. Buy a 30 ounce drink, and you will get an entry code. Add avocado to any sub, and you will get an entry code. If you have posed for a photo with the Lone Ranger and Tonto inside a Subway restaurant, you can upload your photo for a free game play.

There is a game demo on the Subway website. You get to play it after you enter a code. Play the game to find out what you won from the code. Level up to play for bigger prizes.

Chipotle has an “Adventuritto” special offer. It is their “20th Anniversary Treasure Hunt”. Someone will win free burritos for 20 years. Really! It starts on July 13, 2013.

It is a 20 day long treasure hunt. You must register if you are going to do this. Every day, Chipotle will release a new puzzle for you to solve. Every day, they will chose 20 players, at random, who solved the puzzle. Those players will get free burritos for a year. Players that solve the first 19 puzzles will get a chance to win the Grand Prize of free burritos for 20 years.

Target has created an interesting Vine for you to check out. Are your kids bored? Consult Target’s Vine to find a quick, random, idea for some summer fun. The Vine moves by fast, flashing all kinds of fun ideas. Use your mouse to click anywhere on the Vine, and it will freeze. What you see is the next summer fun thing for your kids to do. When I did this, it said “water duel” and showed two little water guns.
