If you’re looking for a quick lunch, a cheap night out or still scouring for Christmas presents, here are some deals to get you going.

Food

  • Chick-fil-A is offering a free taste test of its new spicy chicken biscuit Jan.3-8, 2011 to customers who make a reservation next week. To sign up, visit www.GetSpicyChicken.com on Monday and log your preferred Chick-fil-A restaurant location and time. If you don’t take advantage of the free tasting, you can wait until the biscuit is added to the menu for the general public on Jan. 10, 2011.
  • Burger King’s offering customers two original chicken sandwiches for the price of one now through Jan. 16. The average price of the sandwich at company restaurants is $3.79.
  • Baldinos Giant Jersey Subs has been giving away free subs and beverages on Christmas Eve day since arriving in Atlanta in 1991. This has become an Atlanta tradition for the past 19 years and can provide sustenance for those of you doing last-minute Christmas shopping in the Doraville or Marietta areas.

Events

  • Half Off Depot is offering a ticket to the Atlanta Center for Puppetry Arts today ($16 value) for only $7. The 56%-off ticket includes museum admission (including the Jim Henson exhibit), one show and a visit to the Create-a-Puppet workshop, where you can make your very own puppet friend. This could be a great stocking stuffer for those who have been good boys and girls this year.
  • Atlanta Bargain Hunter exclusive: Ladies Night Out with Poshin Kids gives women a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of the holidays and relax with a paintbrush, canvas, and good company. $35 covers instruction, materials, heavy hors d’oeuvres, tea and water. Participants are encouraged to bring their own libations as well. The painting theme for Dec. 30 is “Cocktail Celebration” and begins at 7 p.m at Artworks on the Square in Fayetteville. 107 Stonewall Ave E. Atlanta Bargain Hunter followers can mention code ILOVEAJC to receive a $5 off discount at the door.

  • Read up on some of the offers from Best Buy this week–especially some of the bundles on the deals pages. Examples include an LG 47-inch HDTV with Wii bundle for $1,199.98, free $50 gift card with purchase of an 8GB iPod touch or 8GB iPod touch package and a Compaq Presario laptop with 15.6″ Display for $299. But buyer beware: most of the deals and bundles won’t save you the hundreds of dollars advertised (if you compare to other retailers). Rather, you could save $50-$100 if you shop smartly.
  • ToysRUs is advertising BOGO 50% off on all Crayola, Nerf and Lego products this week. For today in stores only, you can get a $30 gift card when you purchase an 8GB or 32GB Apple iPod touch plus an extra $10 gift card with any Apple iPod touch or nano.
