CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Oh, every year this makes me smile. Somebody, somewhere has decided today, September 19th is Talk Like A Pirate Day. So how appropriate, Arby s is offering a free value menu item via text.

You can get items like a Junior Roast Beef Sandwich or an order of curly fries by texting the word AHOY to the number 27297. Show your Arby s location the text, and you re good to go! (PS: you may want to try texting this number too:22888).

Meantime, CVS isn t necessarily celebrating TLAP day, but they are offering a great deal for a free candy or beverage item up to $2! Just like them on Facebook and you should be able to print out your coupon.

Miracle Whip spread has gone through somewhat of a transformation, appearing in Lady Gaga videos and re-branding itself with a fresh marketing campaign. (Featuring at one point, a member of the Jersey Shore.) Get two free packets here.

That and the cheapie magazine subscription offers are popping up everywhere. It s unreal.

Nylon Magazine is just $2.99 a year with the coupon code NYLON at checkout.

Marie Claire is less than $4 a year here with the special coupon code: VALUE 17

Enjoy the deals, but as always call your location ahead of time to make sure the store/restaurant is participating. Read all your fine print, and know the offers are subject to change at any time. See you on TV!
