SAN DIEGO, Nov 30, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- If Black Friday has your bank account looking more like a black hole, visit a Jack in the Box(R) restaurant for a refreshing way to cool your deal-seeking heels. From 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. through December 28, Jack in the Box is offering a half-off discount on all real ice cream shakes, including two seasonal favorites now on the menu - Egg Nog and Pumpkin Pie.

"From holiday shopping to cramming for final exams there's so much going on at this time of year," said Tammy Bailey, division vice president of menu marketing and promotions for Jack in the Box Inc. "Add in the impact of a worrisome economy and it's no wonder consumers are feeling a little stressed. We think everyone deserves a break, including a price break.
