Sweet deal: $1 smoothie week at Jamba Juice

Jamba Juice is giving a little love to its customers all this week with $1 smoothies everyday from 9 to 11 a.m.

The deal ends Friday, when sweethearts can cure their Valentine’s Day hangover with a 16-ounce fruit smoothie for just a buck. After a week of spending money on chocolate, roses and fancy dinners, the $4 savings could look mighty sweet to some customers.

The price goes back up to $4.99 Saturday.

Jamba Juice is offering Dollar Days in 12 states, including dozens of stores across the Bay Area. No coupons necessary, but you have to get there by 11 a.m. to get the deal.

Cheap smoothie week will likely cultivate a bit o’ customer love during a crucial time for the company. Emeryville-based Jamba Juice is in the final stages of a turnaround plan to boost sales and revamp its brand as a more healthful option for active people, a transformation that includes store redesigns, menu changes and new tech perks, such as an iPhone app that allows customers to order ahead from their smartphone.
