With the Great American Eclipse only hours away from Jacksonville, many local businesses are participating in the fun with deals on this much anticipated day.


Post or tweet a photo today with #MoonPieEclipse for a chance to win a year’s supply of MoonPie.


All-you-can-eat “mooncakes” are just $4 today only. According to Denny’s twitter, “you can’t tell which one’s a celestial body & which one is a breakfast.” I don’t think they’ll have mooncakes big enough to block out the sun though.

It’s not a discount, but the donut chain is introducing an eclipse-themed treat today. Krispy Kreme says its original glazed donuts “will be eclipsed by a mouth watering chocolate glaze to coincide with the solar eclipse.”

Outback Steakhouse

Today is Bloomin’ Monday at Outback Steakhouse. To celebrate the eclipse, the chain is giving away a free bloomin’ onion with any purchase all day.

Pilot Flying J

Pilot Flying J is offering either a free Milky Way candy bar or a pack of Eclipse gum with the purchase of any drink. This offer is available starting today and runs through Friday. It can be found in the “myOffers” section of the brand’s myPilot mobile app.

Dairy Queen

Dairy Queen is giving out .99 cent blizzards with a purchase.
