Warmer temperatures are either here or on the way throughout much of the country, so it’s the perfect time to grab a Sonic Slush. And for a limited time, you can get either a free Slush or a free Route 44 drink with any purchase at the chain.

The deal applies to soft drinks, iced teas and Limeades, but it excludes the new Red Bull Slush, the Ice Cream Slush and Frozen Lemonade/Limeade. It’s not valid in conjunction with combos or any other offers.


To take advantage of this deal, you must order through the Sonic App and use the promo code TEACHERS, as the deal is in celebration of Teacher Appreciation Month. As such, it’s only good through the end of the month —May 31 —so be sure to snag your free drink while you can. The deal is part of the company’s larger Limeades for Learning initiative, which provides support for teachers and students through classroom supplies and learning resources.

“Limeades for Learning connects Sonic with our communities by supporting incredible teachers who make a difference every single day,” Christi Woodworth, vice president of public relations for Sonic, told QSR Magazine. “This Teacher Appreciation Month, we encourage all of our guests to join us in celebrating teachers with a meaningful donation to a public school classroom. Plus, guests can ‘root’ for a teacher while enjoying a free Route 44 Drink or Slush when they order ahead in our app using the promo code TEACHERS—it’s a win-win.”

Limeades for Learning

Beginning May 8, Sonic is matching all donations made to Sonic Teachers’ projects on Limeades for Learning through, up to $1 million. Customers can browse the projects to donate any amount to any project(s) of their choosing.

Since 2009, the company has donated more than $11 million in support of more than 27,000 classrooms, impacting more than 800,000 students.
