a well-used coupon
I haven't professed my love of all things Sonic lately, so I thought it was a good opportunity today.
I have seriously used this coupon at least 25 times and amongst 3 of the 4 Sonics we have here in town. I might also have used this in Nashville once, too. It came in December, so I've had a few months to use it that many times. And when I say I've used the same coupon, I mean, I've used this exact coupon that many times and they've never asked for it.
I've never offered it either.
The coupon states to mention it when ordering, which I do, but then when delivery time comes, I never offer it. I feel like Sonic has truly benefited from this routine, because without this coupon I wouldn't visit as often. During happy hour, I can get a BLT, tots, and a Route 44 Diet Dr. Pepper with Vanilla for $3.22. Yes, I know my total. Probably because I've written it 25 times in the checkbook.
You see, the key to using a Sonic coupon multiple times is to always pay via debit/credit card at the outside machine. I've learned my lesson the hard way.
At the same time I got this BLT coupon, I also got a coupon for a Route 44 drink for $0.99 any time of the day. On the 4th time I used it, I decided to pay with cash instead of debit card, and they asked for the coupon. Bummer.
Listen to the pro here.
