Isn’t everyday national coffee day? Well, yes. But Monday is “National Coffee Day.”
Of course it’s a stunt, a marketing celebration of the juice on which America runs (if you believe one sales pitch).
But if you play it right, you can get a free — or cheap — cup of Joe. One of the nation’s largest coffee chains, however, may not be participating. As of Sunday night, Starbucks had yet to announce its plans.
Try something new: Dunkin Donuts wants you to know it has a new blend — Dark Roast. It is serving up free medium cups on Monday.
Set an out of office message: How long is a coffee break, anyway? Krispy Kreme wants you to tell others that you’re temporarily away from your email because you’re sipping its free coffee.
“Did you know that the best way to be more productive at work is to take a break? It’s true! I found it on the Internet,” begins their suggested message.
The chain is offering a free 12oz regular coffee. For $1, you can get a mocha, latte or iced coffee.
Not just one day: Who says there’s enough free coffee to last only 24 hours? McDonald’s has been giving away free coffee for two weeks, an offer that ends after Monday.
The fast food chain has been pouring free small cups of coffee during its breakfast hours.
Charlie and the coffee factory: The offer of a $1 cup of coffee is a decent deal, but Tim Hortons is also hiding golden envelopes with “more than $9,000 in cash and gift cards.”
It set up a scavenger hunt and stashed the envelopes stuffed with $25 apiece in five cities: Columbus, Ohio; Buffalo and Rochester, New York; Detroit and Grand Rapids, Michigan. It said clues will be posted to its social media accounts on Monday.
What is normal? I wish I knew. I am on a never ending journey to find the true meaning of normal. I seek it at home, at work, and at play. The world seems to be a weird and strange place, with abnormal as the new normal. But here, we set the rules. We determine what is and isn't normal. We can add our 2-cents on any or every topic. Come join us on our journey. We can have a lot of fun looking at the world differently.
Jan 19, 2015 0Summary: This watch is what I refer to as a concept watch. I use that term to describe the watch as you would use the terms dress, sport, or diver. I think it is a very exclusive category and there are not that many watches that fall into the category of concept. I’m undecided if […]
Mar 29, 2015 0Indiana is in the middle of a well deserved firestorm this week for their incredibly shitty Senate Bill 101, otherwise known as the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and otherwise known as the “Turn Away The Gays” bill. Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, who must realize he is basically...
