Thankfully I love the Pike’s Place roast…

April 23, 2009

at Starbucks as long as the kids behind the counter don’t slack off and make it taste like water with a hint of dirt and wood. In observance of Earth Week, Starbucks locations inside of Targets are giving away free coffee when you bring in your own mug through Saturday. I called ahead to confirm the one closest to me was participating. Indeed, so I’ve loaded up on Pike’s Place quite a bit this week, and it was for free and very good.

Three certainties… death, taxes and freebies

April 14, 2009

Here is a slight bright side to a soul-stealing day known as Tax Day: freebies!
Here’s a popular run-down occupying the Internet right now:

•Free ice cream. MaggieMoo’s Ice Cream and Treatery will give away single-scoop servings to customers at 200 stores in what it calls an “e-cone-omic ice cream stimulus package.”

•Free sweets. Snack chain Cinnabon will give out Tax Day Bites, free bite-size cinnamon rolls usually known as Classic Bites, from 5 to 8 p.m. at its 700 outlets on tax day.

•Free tacos. At its 275 restaurants in the West, Taco Del Mar will run a promotion: “Taxes Suck. Tacos Don’t.” People can register at the Taco Del Mar website for an e-mailed coupon for a free tax day taco.

•Free gift cards. T.G.I. Friday’s will give Wednesday customers $5 Bonus Bites gift cards for food and beverage purchases of $15 to $25 and $10 cards for those who spend more than $25. Members of the 1,000-outlet chain’s frequent-customer program also will get double points.

It’s safe to call ahead if you’re going to try and take advantage of one of these deals to make sure your location is participating.
