When I was a wee bit of a lad, I remember going to the A&W Restaurant in North Syracuse with the family. Even at 43, I can still visualize us sitting in the car and getting one of those awesome A&W mugs. And still now at the age of 43, when I want a root beer float, A&W is the only one I choose. We lost dad last year but one memory of him I will always have is those trips and his love for root beer floats.
Why do I mention this? Well as you know, we like to point out affordable things and as you can see by the picture above, Saturday August 6th 2016 from 2 PM to close, you can get a free root beer float (no coupon needed). Sadly that North Syracuse location may no longer be open but they do have locations in Oswego (295 State Road 104) and Cortland (Junction 281 and 13) worth checking out as well as others near Binghamton and Lake George.
That's not enough to entice you to try it? Okay, how about this deal: you can also enter for a chance to win free floats for you and a friend for a year!!!! Simply tag a friend you would share this with using Twitter or Facebook and hashtag #RootBeerFloatDay and who knows, you may be one of 50 people to win. For more information, you can view the information on their website here and check out the video below.
What about a free float on your birthday? Scroll to the bottom of their page and sign up to join their Mug Club. This also entitles you to other occasional Mug Club member-only deals. As someone who once won mugs for myself and my daughter, I can't recommend highly enough the advantage of following them on Twitter and Facebook as well. And also you can try to be one of 50 people to win your own mug by participating in their "Vote For Your Favorite Mug 2016" contest until August 11th by clicking here.
Don't forget August 6th to stop in at A&W Restaurant for #RootBeerFloatDay and share it with your friends and make your own memories while enjoying a free tasty float.
