FREE tall Starbucks drink of your choice! June 16, 2010

When I saw this deal, which serendipitously arrived in my in-box just as I was planning to pick up a bag of whole bean Starbucks coffee anyway, I pretty much did a happy dance! Yeah, it doesn’t take much these days, but I do LOVE my coffee!

Here’s how to get a FREE tall Starbucks drink of your choice! (The short version is that you get the drink free when you buy 1lb or more of coffee at Starbucks with your registered Starbucks card.)

Step 1: Dig in your wallet for that Starbucks card you either use ALL the time or that one you got back at Christmas but you’ve forgotten about. If you’ve come up dry, swing by your nearest Starbucks to pick up a Starbucks card (you can even do this via the drive-thru) or purchase one online right now.

Step 2: Is your Starbucks card already registered on their site? If so, skip to Step 3. If not, stick with me. Register that Starbucks card by clicking here. (If you don’t already have a Starbucks online account, they’ll walk you through that quick, easy, and free process.)

Step 3: Go to your nearest Starbucks location and purchase some fresh coffee — 1 lb. or more — to make at home or give as a gift. (Think about your journeys this summer! A bag of coffee makes a great host/hostess gift! Not sure what to buy?My favorite is Cafe Verona, but Breakfast Blend or House Blend are always “safe” for gifts. ) Be sure to use that registered Starbucks card to make your purchase.

Step 4: Order your FREE tall Starbucks drink of your choice when you purchase that fresh coffee. ENJOY!

I guess Taco Bell has taken notice of Sonic’s success with their infamous limeades and hopped on the bandwagon. Take advantage of this promo by hopping on too! Click here to print your coupon for a FREE Limeade Sparkler, available in Classic Limeade or Cherry Limeade flavors.

2 FREE tickets to Studio Movie Grill February 19, 2010

PLEASE NOTE: I have no affiliation with Studio Movie Grill and no matter how nicely you ask me, I can’t get you any free tickets. That’s something you have to do on your own. 🙂

Have you been to Studio Movie Grill yet? Honestly, I haven’t either… but, I just got my 2 FREE TICKETS to use in the next few weeks and can’t wait to check it out! Friends have told me it is a great spot for dinner, beverages AND a movie, and our playgroup has even headed there with the kiddos at lunch time.

To get your 2 FREE TICKETS, just fill out this form and they’ll email you a verification link. Click that link and you’ll go straight to a site that has your PRINTABLE VOUCHER for your 2 FREE TICKETS.

Hmm… I see a FREE date night in my future! (Except for the cost of the babysitter, of course.)

Find a Studio Movie Grill near you.

Expires: The offer to get your tickets expires at the end of February, 2010. You can use your tickets through the expiration date at the bottom of your voucher. I signed up for my tickets today (2/19) and my tickets expire on 3/4/10.

Thanks, Sarah & Jessica!


FREE chocolate milk February 3, 2010

UPDATE: This promotion appears to have ended early due to high demand. Sorry, folks! There seem to be more milk lovers out there than coupons available. We’ll let you know when we see this come around again. 2/4/10

My latest sweet treat? Chocolate milk in my coffee! And I got it FREE!

As part of the “got milk?” campaign, you can get a FREE half gallon of chocolate milk (any brand up to $3) with the purchase of one gallon of white milk (any brand).  All you need to do is go to the Great Gallon Give website, click “enter now” in the upper left-hand corner, and enter to win FREE milk  for a year. The consolation prize for not being the grand prize winner is a printable coupon for the FREE chocolate milk! Just be sure your printer is on, connected, and stocked with paper.

The great part about this deal is that it is good on any brand of milk. Organic? No problem! Hershey’s? Gotcha covered. Nestle quick? Done. And if the chocolate milk you choose is over $3, this ends up being a coupon for $3 off your purchase.

Expires: They’re giving out 125,000 coupons, and the coupon I printed today expires March 5, 2010
