We have pretty strict guidelines about what we allow to be purchased in our food budget each pay period. We occasionally splurge on soda, usually buying store brands when we do. One way we’ve found that we can enjoy this treat is to take the customer surveys that often print at the bottom of Sonic Drive-In receipts.
We sort of feel like we’re on to something here. Let me tell you how it works…
Sonic Drive-In will often have a phone survey at the bottom of random receipts, and if you take the survey… they reward you with a free Route 44 drink!
We find that about 75% of the time, if you order just a drink, you get the survey! I don’t know if that is a marketing scheme or if we are super lucky, but we’ve been rolling into Sonic every few days with a completed survey receipt to get a FREE Route 44, and we leave with another survey that will give us another free drink!
Seriously, almost every time!
It only take a few minutes, and for us…it’s worth it. I love me a Vanilla Diet Coke, and as long as I keep getting free Route 44 drinks from Sonic Drive-In, then I can keep enjoying them!
Have any of you ever noticed this phenomenon?
Oh, and if you don’t have a free Route 44 survey, be sure to go during their Happy Hour (usually 9-11am and 2-4pm, but it can very from location to location) for half price drinks.
You can also join their Sonic Cruisers club and get a free treat on your birthday!
We love our free Sonic drinks and hope they keep going…and going…and going!
