FREE Obama Coffee This Saturday!!!

Actually it is really just FREE coffee for National Coffee Day this Saturday but, hey, in the spirit of the Obama Phone Lady why not pitch it as Obama Coffee? Here is a list of places to get your FREE (unObama) Coffee this Saturday. Oh, and it starts early at 7-Eleven where you can get a jump on your FREE coffee as soon as Friday:

  • 7-Eleven: You can free coffee on 9/28! This is going on at participating locations and while supplies last!
  • Krispy Cream: You can also head over to Krispy Cream to get a free 12oz cup of House Blend Coffee! No purchase necessary. This offer is going on on 9/29 only, while supplies last!
  • McDonalds: Free Coffee for the week of 9/22 – 9/29! Reports say that you get free coffee in Philly only, but I would check your local McDonalds!
  • Kangaroo Express: $0.01 12oz Bean Streen Coffee on 9/29!
  • Manhattan Bagel: 9/27- Free Coffee wyb Breakfast Sandwich. 9/28 – Free Coffee wyb Bagel with Cream Cheese. 9/29 – Free Coffee! No Coupons needed!
  • Caribou Coffee: Free Cup of Amy’s Blend Coffee on 9/29!
  • Tim Hortons: BOGO Free Coffee on 9/29 – with coupon!

  • I don't like to feel like a complete mooch so I will buy a breakfast sandwich or a donut to go with my FREE coffee. Or perhaps the Obama Phone Lady can give us some inside info on Obama Donuts?

    Finally, if you haven't yet joined GroupOn, it is getting better and better. Just recently I picked up a 4 hour drift boat fishing trip for two. However, I begged my wife NOT to embarrass me by screaming hysterically if she catches a fish.

    More FREE Propane!!!

    One of the biggest misconceptions about GroupOn is that it is strictly for restaurants, entertainment, and travel. Well, your humble correspondent has taken advantage of those discount offers but for the most part, I have used GroupOn for "meat and potatoes" necessities. And one of my favorite necessities is propane. You might remember I had a post in this blog last year about getting FREE propane and guess what? I did it again!

    I bought the propane last year in August but used my GroupOn coupon in January to score my FREE propane. Well, since I use the barbeque a couple of times per week, my tank will soon run out of propane. A few days ago I drove by the propane place where I got my tank in January and made the wish that the propane deal would become available again. It was almost like the Coupon god was reading my mind because on Monday, I saw the same propane deal on GroupOn again. Of course I immediately "bought" it since this is something I definitely need.

    I put "bought" in quotes since I actually paid NO money for the propane. The reason is that I referred so many people that I earned plenty of GroupOn bucks with which I "paid" for the propane. In fact, the grand total of money out of my pocket that I have spent ever since joining GroupOn has been $7 and that was for a $15 eBay gift card which I used immediately. Everything else was purchased with the GroupOn bucks I earned from referrals.

    My most exotic purchase so far has been for a four hour kayaking trip which I will take in a couple of weeks. Everything else has been the meat and potatoes stuff.

    Since my propane wish has been granted perhaps I can be granted my other GroupOn wish: Discount tickets for Rapids Water Park in West Palm Beach. I've seen the Water Park from the outside and it is HUGE. If GroupOn makes such a discount deal available, I would snap it up for myself and relatives including 3 kids who I know would love the place.

    Of course, this would end up as a FREE deal for me if I earn just a few more GroupOn bucks. So just click HERE to give me those referral bucks that I could apply to the Water Park. BTW, it is FREE to join GroupOn and the advantage is that you will be informed of all the deals in your area so you will be ready to snap them up when they become available.

    Oh, and just so you know, I did see a Bahamas cruise for two for two nights including meals for just $199. So if you are planning to visit South Florida sometime in the next year, you might want to take advantage of that at GroupOn.
