Anyway, after scoping things out and a mad rush to sign up for customer loyalty programs, here is what I got today:
Breakfast – Free Grand Slam at Denny’s. All you need is some proof of your DOB at the ready and breakfast is yours.
Lunch – Free burger (and fries) at Red Robin. You have to sign up for this one. But I only did it yesterday and still got the coupon (which is good for 2 weeks).
Dinner – Nothing free. I am actually happy to report I ate a salad.
Other freebies – Chai latte at Starbucks. A 2 for 1 coupon from the Dairy Queen Blizzard Fan Club (another signup and good for 2 weeks).
Note, while some places will give you free things with proof of birthday, most want you to sign up for their various customer loyalty or email programs (which, I suppose, you could always unsubscribe from right after scoring free birthday food).
If you donate to CJSR you can get lots of great, free, stuff. Discount cards, music downloads, t-shirts, hoodies, good stuff. Now, you can’t get your hands on clothing until you donate at least $120, but I know the economy can be a tough old cookie. So, tell you what, if you donate between $20 and $119 to CJSR’s FunDrive I will give you the t-shirt I’ve got coming. (You can email me a screengrab of your donation or whatnot.)
That’s right. I will give you the shirt off my back* if you donate to CJSR. I think community radio is a valuable thing for us to support and sometimes you’ve just got to put your t-shirt where your blog is. Or something.
Oh, and if this somehow convinces multiple people to help out a great artistic hub of Edmonton, I shall draw names out of a hat to see which generous donor gets the t-shirt. Thanks, everybody!
*It’s never going to be worn by me, so you don’t even have to worry about washing it, you can just go ahead and put it right on. This just keeps getting better for you.
