Americans shook by absence of Canada's $0.99 Dairy Queen Blizzard deal

Mar 29 2018, 2:01 am

Earlier this week we wrote about the buy-one-get-one for $0.99 Blizzard promotion at Dairy Queen, which was available up until March 28.

While most Canadians were jumping for joy at the deal, it seems that some Americans were feeling very envious, because unfortunately for our neighbours to the south, this drool-worthy deal was only available in Canada.

“Minnesota is basically a province, eh?” and “How do I get that in Idaho?” were just a few of the questions loyal American DQ-lovers had for the food chain.

While ‘participating Canadian franchise locations’ was specified in DQ’s promotional materials and our post, some US residents must have skipped over the details and headed straight to their nearest DQ restaurant, where they were faced with the ultimate disappointment…

Even US store managers were experiencing the negative effects of this mix up from customers, “It has had horrible backlash in our store and I’m sure other stores in the United States,” one DQ manager told us.

Some Americans took to Twitter to air their grievances and express their confusion and frustration while us Canadians enjoyed this deliciously cheap deal.
