Happy Cinco de Mayo!
Though — contrary to common belief — today is not Mexico’s Independence Day, it’s still an excuse to celebrate.
And here at The Penny Hoarder, you know how we celebrate: with deals.
So here are 12 of the best Cinco de Mayo specials we could find… Vamos!

Get your drink on with $5 handcrafted classic margaritas at the Bahama Breeze nearest you.
