Between crippling credit card bills and New Years resolutions, January is traditionally a bad month for fast food restaurants.

And so you may notice a lot of deals cropping up at a drive-thru near you.

Wendy’s is offering a 99 cent Cheesy Cheddar Burger.

This weekend, KFC is unveiling its $11 “Weekend Bucket” — that would be 10 pieces of chicken.

Burger King is mailing out coupon books, and Taco Bell has just brought back the 99 cent Beefy Crunch burrito.
