Hot Deal! $1.49 for 10 Piece Chicken Nuggets at Burger King

If you're looking craving Chicken nuggets and want to get them cheap, head on over to Burger King for their 10 pieces of chicken nuggets for $1.49.  It is still on-going.  The Burger King stores have this deal in Canada and in the U.S. with a bit of price variation:

  • 10 pieces of chicken nuggets for $1.49 in the U.S.
  • 10 pieces of chicken nuggets for $1.79 in Canada

This is still a great deal in either country and it seems to be an on-going promotion as no deal expiry date has been announced. I've had these nuggets on a few occasions. The nugget meat is alright, but seems to have some fillers in it and the breading is a bit thick, but I can't complain about the price as it's about 80% less than what McDonald's would charge for 10 pieces. They also have some decent dipping sauces such as Buffalo, zesty and barbecue.

Burger King bought the Tim Hortons coffee and donut chain last year and this may impact the BK restaurants, and it'll be interesting to see what other deals will be happening at Burger King restaurants because of this merger.

Free Screening of the Guardians of the Galaxy Movie, plus Free Poster!

After seeing the Guardians of the Galaxy movie trailer at the movie theater, I was tipped off about a free preview screening at some Imax movie theatres.  Marvel and Disney are working hard to promote this so they are showing 17 minutes of preview footage of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie (GOTG).  According to Disney/Marvel Studios, "Fans who attend this sneak peek will also receive a limited-edition collectible Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy IMAX poster!"  Tickets are available in IMAX theatres in many North American cities. Just go to to sign up for the preview.

On a personal note, I've been reading comics since I was a kid and I'm really amazed at how Marvel Studios (Disney) have been able to make good movies out of lesser-known comic book characters such as Thor and the Avengers.  Hopefully the GOTG movie continues this trend.  T
hey are definitely better at making comic book movies than DC Comics.
