As the aroma of grilled patties fills the air and the sizzle of burgers captures the imagination of foodies across the Valley, National Hamburger Day on May 28 promises a feast for the wallet as much as the stomach. Deals are sizzling at local eateries and national chains alike, offering burger buffs a chance to indulge without burning a hole through their budgets. ABC15's Smart Shopper rounds up some hot deals, confirming that ATL Wings is flipping a free Non-Breaded Chicken Burger to those purchasing any combo meal, while Dog Haus is doubling down with a two-for-one Haus Burger deal available through their app or online.

Meanwhile, big national chains aren't far behind, with USA TODAY reporting that Wendy's is serving up a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger for a cent with any purchase. Burger King cuts too, with vendors dishing out freebies starting with a free hamburger with a 70-cent purchase on the big day itself. For those looking for more refueling options throughout the week, a free medium soft drink and Crispy Chicken Sandwich privileges extend through June 3 for a minimum purchase.

Back in the Valley, diners have a veritable menu of options to bite into. According to ABC15, See's Candies is sweetening the pot with a new store opening at The Promenade Scottsdale, dishing out free samples and a chance to win a year of lollypops. But for the adults, Kona Grill offers somewhat savory deals with dishes ranging from $3-9 for those late-night appetites.

And it's not just about the grub—as valued members of the community, military personnel, and educators are not forgotten. In honor of Memorial Day, veterans can show their ID for a free car wash at Rinse N Ride locations, and teachers can also enjoy $3 pints with a valid ID at Four Peaks during happy hour. The Arizona Science Center is also providing free general admission tickets to qualifying active-duty military personnel and their families starting from Armed Forces Day through to Labor Day, as part of the Blue Star Museums program.
