    8.75 is the cost before tax for panda express deal

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Whoops! Thanks for catching that, fan! We’ve updated the post. 🤗

  2. Peaches

    I like Taco Bell’s $5 Build your Own deal. I can get a Chalupa Supreme, Crunchwrap Supreme or Gordita. Then I get to choose a Classic. I get the 5-layer beefy burrito because they reheat nicely. Next I choose aside and I love their cheesy fiesta potatos. Finally, I choose my drink and soft drinks can be upsized for 20¢. Not too shabby of a deal if you like Taco Bell.

      Sounds like a great deal, Peaches! Thanks for sharing! 🌮🥰
