SonicGroundhogImageGroundhog’s Day is coming up soon and Sonic is celebrating!

As you know, Punxsutawney Phil is about to make his 2013 debut and give us a verdict on whether we get to break into spring early this year.

To beat the winter blues, SONIC is hedging its bets and offering 100% good news on Groundhog Day. For one day only, SONIC is offering its Footlong Quarter Pound Hot Dogs at half price. SONIC’s own groundhog will be taking questions and responding with predictions on from Thursday, Jan. 31, through Groundhog Day on Saturday, Feb. 2.

I have been eyeing the different hot dogs they carry the last few times I have visited Sonic, but I always go back to my favorite Sonic Burger and LemonBerry Slush!  I am thinking this is THE perfect time for me to break out of my box and try one of them.

I have to tell you that my family and I are HUGE fans of Sonic!  It doesn’t help that we pass by one at least twice a week when we take my son to basketball practice.  The food is great and the prices are better.  In fact, I am heading out soon to drive my son to his practice and I believe we will have to stop on the way back home afterwards to pick up a slushie 😉

I know I am not the only Sonic fan in the house right? If you are also a fan of Sonic you will love the news I am getting ready to share with you next!

I am giving away a $50 Sonic Gift Card to one lucky Saving Dollars and Sense reader!

Here’s how to enter:

Leave me a comment telling me your groundhog prediction. What do you think Punxsutawney Phil will say?

Will we see Spring early this year or no?

This giveaway is open to all legal residents of the US age 18 and older and will end on February 2nd.

  1. Jessica M. says:

    Hope for an early spring

  2. My guess is that Phil will NOT see his shadow. (crossing fingers)

  3. Hog will see his shadow he doesn’t believe in global warming haha please pick us we have to drive three hours to get to sonic and love it!!

  4. Jessica White says:

    I am hoping that he says it is going to be spring, but we really need a longer winter for most of the country in order to stave off drought. So I hope he does say it will be winter longer.

  5. Not exactly sure, but I’m sure hoping he says spring will come early this year!

  6. Ann Henderson says:

    He will see his shadow, winter will end on March 20th no matter what Phil says, and the weather will continue to be as unpredictable as ever. But I love Sonic and hope I win.

  7. Katie Hubbard says:

    I’m guessing we’ll have six more weeks of winter!

  8. Mary Beth Cavender says:

    I agree that I love Sonic’s slushes.. Happy hour at their store is one of my favorite times of the day.

    As far as my prediction: I believe Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow and run back into his burrow guaranteeing us 6 more weeks of winter.

  9. I think he will see his shadow and we will have a longer winter! NOOOO! :)

  10. Yes…SONIC!
    I think Phil will NOT see his shadow.
    I am cold, my feet are cold and I need an early spring!!

  11. I think spring will come early.

  12. Sarah Voris says:

    More winter!

  13. I think the winter weather will continue

  14. I predict that the groundhog will tell us spring will come early. It will also be my birthday. :)

  15. I think he will see his shadow.

  16. Yes we will see an early Spring. All this crazy weather will lead to warmer temps. earlier.

  17. Heidi Wright says:

    I think we are NOT going to have an early spring. But…since I love the warm weather, I hope I am wrong!!

  18. anne kearney says:

    Spring is coming early!

  19. Early Spring!!!

  20. Ang Musick says:

    Early Spring – been a WEIRD winter here…………LOL

  21. He will see his shadow and winter will last for 6 more weeks. But in Michigan that can be a variety of things :)

  22. katie collins says:

    P.P. will see his shadow

  23. I think we will see in an early spring. :-)

  24. Lisa Baranowski says:

    Well I cannot be alone in saying Phil Had better not see his shadow. Michigan needs to be free fast of this cold weather. Phil I know had been accurate for well over one hundred years so I will be going on Saturday he will make many of us happy! My kids will have a limade and think of Sir Phil as I have sunglasses and capris on lol

  25. I think we still have more winter weather on the way :)

  35. robyn hively says:

    I dont think he will see his shadow! this is crazy lol winter is still here til mid april regardless of yes or no but we still sit on the edge of our seats and get just as excited as the kids , a few years ago we even made puppets with a groundhog on a popsicle stick and we pop it up thru the bottom of a styrofoam cup and who ever guessed right got a special treat that day.. I think its the anticipation of it all!!

  36. I have a gut feeling he will see his shadow:( although I really am so ready for spring:$

  37. I think he will see his shadow.

  38. I think we’re in for six more weeks of winter, so I think Phil sees his shadow and heads for the fireplace to warm up!

  39. I think he won’t see his shadow. But I hope we hav an early spring, I’m already getting spring fever.

  40. Jeff Kearney says:

    He will see his shadow!

  41. Early spring, for sure!

  42. Jennette Skaggs says:

    Since I know what Phil saw this morning, I won’t cheat. However, I think he was right. Spring temps should come a bit early this year even if Spring always comes officially the same time each year. Tennessee gets odd weather anyway. Spring on Tuesday and winter on Friday.

  43. Kelly Sullivan says:

    Early spring!

  44. I think he will predict that Spring will come early this year.

  45. Hooing for early spring!! Sick of winter!!

  46. I just figured out last year that it’s the same outcome either way… Either “Yaaay! Only 6 more weeks until Spring!” :) or “Awww… Looks like 6 more weeks of winter…” :( See? Same thing! haha I don’t believe I never noticed that before. Can’t wait for spring though… This winter has seemed really looong…

  47. Michelle Wheeler says:

    I need spring to come early! Come one Phil! time to get planting!! The garden is calling!

  48. Ang Musick says:

    Glad to see it is no more winter – like we had any but the COLD weather! LOL

  49. Amanda Sikes says:

    I just want winter to end!!!!! So I hope he doesn’t!!!

  50. Phil will see his shadow and pack his bags and spend the rest of his winter in Florida! :)

  51. I never know which is which it all seems too long especially sitting in -25 windchills so ill vote for whichever is shorter? He sees his shadow?

  52. Spring will come early!! Ready for warm weather.
