Posted July 23, 2014

Kangaroo Free Hot Dog Day


Wednesday, July 23 is National Hot Dog Day and Kangaroo Express is offering a free hot dog to any customer who presents the Kangaroo Express mobile app on their phone or presents a military I.D!

From their press release:

"As a token of appreciation for our Armed Services, Kangaroo Express will offer a free hot dog to any customer with a military I.D. that stops by its nearly 1,200 grill-ready Kangaroo Express convenience stores between 6 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. In addition, guests who present the Kangaroo Express mobile app on their phone will receive a coupon voucher for a free hot dog.

Guests can stop by any participating Kangaroo Express on Wednesday, July 23 from 4 to 8 p.m. to enjoy 50-cent Ball Park hot dogs (limit four per guest). Paired with a ROO Cup refill, guests can pick up a dog and a drink for just 75 cents.

The hot dog has long been a part of iconic American celebrations and pastimes, including Independence Day and summer baseball games. Pairing perfectly with American pride, Kangaroo Express guests can enjoy their Ball Park® hot dog while supporting the military men and women who protect our freedom by donating to the Salute Our Troops® campaign.

Donations from the campaign will support the American Red Cross Service to Armed Forces, providing emergency communications, comfort and assistance to military, veterans and their families; Fisher House Foundation, donating “comfort homes” at major military and VA medical centers that enable military families to be close to a loved one during hospitalization; the United States Veterans Corps, a corps of military veterans, spouses, dependents and patriotic citizens performing hands on community service with a mission and deployment attitude, as well as six state-based military support organizations.

Since its commencement in 2011, the Salute Our Troops campaign has raised $8.4 million dollars, breaking fundraising records for many of its beneficiary organizations."

    I guess it depends on the location, but I went and got some hot dogs today, and I must say, having never bought hot dogs there before, I was actually impressed. Everything was clean, the hotdogs were covered under a plexiglass case and they had ballpark beef hot dogs and hillshire farm cheesewursts. They were really good, so don't knock it before you try it. :)

    LOL@ Anita. Now I don't care for gas station bathrooms. I feel like a need a shower after using one. I try not to touch anything. I'm teaching my daughter the squat method!

    But anyway if someone is in a hurry a free gas station hot dog is better than nothing I guess.

    Lmbo Anita, that's the extra seasoning to make the taste just over the top.

    Forgot about Sonic that quick. Thanks Raesmom.

    Also heard something about Wayback Burgers, bogo free hot dogs?

    And if gas station hot dogs are not your thing, Sonic will have $1 hot dogs all day today. The Chili Cheese Dogs and the American Dogs are the hot dogs that are $1

    Thinking about the workers who just used the bathroom not washing their hands and all the people who are near and next to those hot dog rollers spinning away for who knows how long makes my mouth just water for a gas station hot dog.
