Don’t Forget to Vote, Then Get These Freebies and Deals

November 6, 2012

The Cheap Bastard doesn’t know about you, but now that Washington has mail-in voting, he misses going to the polls not only because he once worked as an election judge, but also because it gives you the feeling of really participating in something. He also misses the ability to take his kids to the polls to see democracy in action. And he also misses getting the “I Voted” sticker, which just happens to be a key to getting many election day discounts.

Fortunately, if you’re a subscriber to the Seattle Times, there’s an “I Voted” sticker attached to today’s front page. It’s from Bartell Drugs. The CB hasn’t heard if this works or not, but he plans on wearing it all day anyway, even if he doesn’t go to any of the places offering freebies. Here’s a quick list of freebies from around the world of the interblogs:

Buca di Beppo –Buy one lunch item, get another free. (from Hey Its Free).

California Pizza KitchenHey It’s Free is reporting that participating California Pizza Kitchen locations are offering $5 off take out orders. The Cheap Bastard has been unable to verify if that’s the case in Seattle as most CPKs were closed at the time of posting.

Gordon Biersch–Currently has a coupon for a cheeseburger and beer for $10. (Hey It’s Free). The person who answered the phone at the Pacific Place location said she was not aware whether they were honoring the coupon or not.

Olive Garden–Bring in an “I Voted sticker and get a complementary Dolcini (whatever that is) with any adult entree. (Hey It’s Free).

Rock Bottom Brewery — Get an 11 oz top sirloin steak and beer for $20 with coupon (Hey It’s Free).

Romano’s Macaroni Grill — Add the code RMGTOGO to your online order and you’ll save $10 on your order…if it’s over $20 (multiple sources).

Starbucks — Get a free Indivisible bracelet to anybody who asks for one. Some bloggers are reporting that you may also get a free Via coffee packet. (Hey It’s Free, Thrifty NW Mom)

Z’Tejas–Buy one entree, get one free from 4 pm to close or 20% off your to-go order at participating locations (Hey Its Free).

7-11— Free cup of coffee if you’ve voted at participating locations (Thrifty NW Mom).

Blockbuster — If you can find a location that’s still open, you can get a free rental from Blockbuster Favorites (Thrifty NW Mom).

Ivar’sHalf price wine. This actually has nothing to do with the election. It just so happens that Ivar’s apparently offers half price wine on Monday and Tuesday, but after this long election season, who couldn’t use a drink?
