National Hot Dog Day 2018: The deals on Staten Island

The obvious way to celebrate the big holiday is ... eating hot dogs.

The Nostalgia Electrics Retro Series Pop-Up Hot Dog Toaster is on sale for $15.44 (down from $22) at Walmart.

Portillo's is celebrating National Hot Dog Week in a major way. This deal is for new app users and dine-in only, while supplies last.

You can get yourself a nice hot dog with some mustard, ketchup or relish on top and for cheap. On Monday, get a free spicy stick item with any lemonade purchase. If you're not a loyalty member, just download the My Hwy 55 app to enjoy the deal!

The Chicago History Museum announced Monday that the festival, where visitors can sample dogs, drinks and local bands, will run from August 10-12 at the corner of Stockton and LaSalle Drive.

Free pretzel dog for the first 100 customers.

Pilot Flying J: With the myPilot app Wednesday, get a coupon for a free hot dog or roller grill item.

As an added bonus for Chicagoland residents, a Portillo's Hot Dog mascot will be popping up at locations throughout the city on Wednesday, July 18. Not valid on jumbo hot dogs, polish sausages or Italian sausages. Corn dogs also are 99 cents during Happy Hour. If you're not in on chili dogs... we might have to end this relationship.
