And be sure to check out the other links I’ve come across previously.
I have to admit that I’m not a big Barnes and Noble person. I mean I remember going to college and paying a whole lot of money for textbooks from one of their bookstores. And I don’t understand why I see all those folks in their stores who must be college graduates who went through the same thing but yet frequent their stores. I shake my head over that.
Anyway, Barnes and Noble is offering a Free Cafe Latte, Cappuccino, Espresso, Freshly Brewed Coffee or Hot Tea with coupon. The promotion runs to the end of October and, from reading the coupon, you don’t have to be a member of their membership club although I’ve read some stores are requiring it. If you happen to be in one of those store that do require the membership, there are instructions on the coupon explaining how to process it without being a member. (ie: Point out the instructions to the clerk.)
You can get the coupon direct from the Barnes and Noble site and I’ve attached a copy here to this post. There is also a 15% off coupon on the B&N site as well if you want to grab that. (Again, no membership is required but Your Mileage May Vary depending on the store.)

I didn’t get a chance to blog about it ahead of time but Shane’s gave out a free lunch on May 17th. It consisted of a free 1/2 rack of ribs and a free Coke Zero. (Our local location threw in a free apple cobbler as well.)
I got there about 45 minutes before opening thinking I was going to be too late to get any free food but I was happy (and surprised) to discover that I was 5th in line.
I put up some photos of the event in the gallery.
Upstart Blogger is giving away the domain name, spamchow.com if you can come up with a good way to use it. I’ve gone ahead and made my entry. For the last few months due to all the problems we have had with Akismet, (long story that I would rather not get into.) we’ve been using a reworked version of the old wp-spamassassin plugin, not just for wordpress but for other platforms as well. I’ve been debating on making it available to the general public and/or turning it into a service.

With Matt Kenseth’s win at Atlanta, Arby’s is giving away free curly french fries today. All you have to do is print out a copy of the attached email or cut out the race results from your local newspaper. Bring them to your local Arby’s and they’ll give you a free medium curly fry.
I’ve just got to figure out some way of printing out the coupon for me to get mine.
It’s strange that no one is blogging about this but Hardee‘s is doing Free Coffee on Monday’s for the time being. I don’t see anything on their website about the promotion but there’s signs up all over their stores. They’re probably doing this to promote their new Channel Islands Roasting Company coffee that they have introduced. There’s no mention on how long this will last and the employees I asked didn’t know either.
I got my free cup this morning. I’m debating on hitting them again on the way home.
I met a very nice young lady by the name of Rachel at the free breakfast over at Newell Presbyterian Church this past Sunday and she took some pictures for me. (Actually I think her mom took most of the group shots.)
I’ve gotten a chance to sort most of the other photos as well. I need to sit down and write descriptions though for them some time soon.
Breakfast was cool. Had eggs, bacon, and biscuits. I think I was the only non-church person there so i had to introduce myself a number of times but I didn’t mind. I walk by the church twice every day when I head over to UNCC. Didn’t get any pictures as my batteries died with the other breakfast this morning under the bridge.
I finally got a chance to look over the most read posts for January. I probably should do some sort of Top Post widget in the sidebar. (edit: Done now.)
