After getting a dozen free donuts at Krispy Kreme Friday morning, I decided to take my kids there after they got out of school.

The store may have been empty when I stopped by in the morning, but that wasn’t the case when we stopped by later in the day, as you can see.

Menchie’s: Free Yogurt at Green Lake Village from 11 to 1 Today (9/20)

September 20, 2014

photoIn case you missed my post earlier this week, Green Lake Village is having a grand opening at 11 today (9/20) and the frozen yogurt store is celebrating with a week’s worth of deals starting with 8 ounces of free yogurt today from 11 to 1 p.m.

Other retailers are supposed to be having grand opening deals during that time as well, but I couldn’t find a list, so you’ll just have to go and check them out yourself.

It May Look Lame…But It Got Me Donuts

September 19, 2014

pirate man
For those of you who were wondering what would happen if you showed up to Krispy Kreme in a really lame pirate outfit, here’s your answer.

I put on an old newspaper pirate hat that I made last year, an eye patch and a hook, walked into the Krispy Kreme on Aurora Avenue in Seattle and said “Aaarrrrggggghhhhh!” and you know what I got?

I mean, besides laughed at?

I got this (and no, the box isn’t empty)!


Krispy Kreme: Get Free Donuts By Dressing Like a Pirate the Easy Way Today (9/19)

September 19, 2014

EyePatch_ThumbSure, you say to yourself, I could get a dozen free glazed donuts today if only I dressed like a pirate and visited a Krispy Kreme, but who has time to assemble all the accoutrements necessary to do so?

Believe it or not, you do.

All you have to do is wear three approved pieces of pirate gear and you’re in. And this year, Krispy Kreme has helpfully provided a way for you to print out and make at least three on its web site. So, now you can make your own eye patch, sport your own pirate flag, create your own hand with a hook and even print out your very own parrot for your shoulder.

Take your time, the promotion goes all day. Or, if you want, you can just stop in, talk like a pirate and get a single free one.

Get Free Small Coffee at McDonalds until 11 a.m.

September 17, 2014

mccafe-542x284Okay, this notification may come a little late to do you much good today, but now through Sept. 29th, participating Mickey D’s restaurants are offering a free small coffee to all comers until 11 a.m., no purchase necessary.

Is this a good thing?

Who knows? Who cares? Hey, it’s free.

And the coffee makes a good base for the mocha I make with hot chocolate mix……

Starbucks: Buy One Fall Bev, Get One Free

September 17, 2014

9b5837688b8e43cf844f344725c5b3f6Now that Pumpkin Spice Latte time has finally rolled around, don’t you wish there was some sort of deal that would allow you to get one without paying so much?

Well, there is. If you go to a participating Starbucks store between 2 and 6 p.m., you can get one hot or cold fall drink at regular price and get a second one free.

Of course, what Starbucks defines as a fall beverage is rather limited. The list includes the storied Pumpkin Spice Latte, a Salted Caramel Mocha and the Teavana Oprah Chai Tea (didn’t Starbucks just have a deal on that this summer? And, if so, doesn’t that make it a summer beverage?).
