For more, check out all of our frugal ideas.
Do you have plans for today? If you do, break them. I’ve got better ones for you. Today (September 19) is International Talk Like A Pirate Day (yes, it’s a real thing). To celebrate, a few places are offering Talk Like A Pirate Day deals and freebies.
It’s not like it has been in the past (it seems some freebies have walked the plank), but there are still a few places holding on to this fun holiday.
Quick note: Krispy Kreme is not participating this year. In the past, if you spoke like a pirate (ya know, saying things like “Thar she blows”), you got a free doughnut. If you dressed like a pirate (which meant you needed a three-piece costume), you got a dozen free doughnuts. That stopped in 2016. So don’t head over there looking for doughnuts. The current workers won’t know what you’re talking about.
