Americans will spend more than $3 BILLION on food and drinks for the Super Bowl on Sunday. Here are five tips to help you save money if you’re hosting a party for the Big Game this weekend . . .
1. Make it a potluck or BYOB. It’s not only a great way to save money, it also helps you get a wider variety of food and drinks at the party.
2. Look for sales. Rather than planning your menu and then looking in grocery store ads to see which items on your list are on sale, plan your entire menu based on what’s discounted.
3. Buy in bulk. Warehouse stores like Costco are a great place to pick up things like burger patties, hot dogs, buns, chips, and especially alcohol.
4. Use a slow cooker. It allows you to buy tougher, cheaper cuts of meat that will soften as they cook slowly over several hours. A big pot of chili would only cost you a few bucks, but it’ll make enough servings to last most of the game.
5. Go for homemade snacks over prepared food. It’s EASIER to buy sandwich and veggie platters from the grocery store . . . but that convenience comes at a price. A pre-made platter can end up costing you two or three times as much as making it yourself.
MCALLEN, Texas – On Tuesday, Sept. 13, Whataburger customers can show their support for the Nikki Rowe High School band booster club by enjoying their favorite menu items, and 20 percent of Whataburger’s sales from 6 to 9 p.m. will be donated to the organization. Whataburger’s “Oh Whata Night” will include its popular “Whataburger for a Year” drawing, where one customer’s name will be drawn to win the prize – a free Whataburger each week for an entire year. To add to the fun, there will be a photo booth at the event, as well as a guest appearance from Whataburger’s mascot, Whataguy. The first 100 attendees will also receive free sunglasses.
“Whataburger believes in investing in the communities we call home,” said Whataburger Director of Operations David Cantu. “We’re fortunate to join with the most generous customers in support for the Nikki Rowe High School band boosters.”
Family-owned Whataburger has proudly served its famous burgers since 1950 and continues to deliver fresh, made-to-order meals every day with extraordinary customer service. In addition to “Oh Whata Night” fundraising, Whataburger supports the communities it serves through charitable giving and volunteerism to a number of nonprofit organizations that focus on children’s charities, cancer research, hunger assistance, disaster relief and military support.
