Eat Here, Get Gas

Starting Friday, if you order $25 of food to go at Izzy's, and they'll give you a $5 gas card. They'll also give you another gas-producing item: A pint of sauerkraut.

all 7 Izzy's locations "While gas cards are still available." Not sure how long that is.

If I remember correctly, Izzy’s went the franchise route in the mid 80s with mixed results. Almost all of those stores eventually closed.

I love coupons, bargains, discounts, but I can't figure out for the life of me how I am going to spend $25 on a to go order at Izzy's. Any suggestions? Throw a party? Does anything they carry freeze well?

Gather orders from your co-workers. Offer to pick it up.

I just realized by the time I drove to one, it might take a gallon of gas just defeating the purpose...sorry no Izzy's for me!

Given how expensive Izzy's food is for what you get, hitting 25 bucks should be easy - 3 sandwiches and 3 drinks would do it easily.
