YAY! FREE Stuff This Week Beginning w/ Free Slurpee Today

By Debbie Schlussel

I love letting readers know about free stuff, especially in this tough Obamaconomy. If you have a family, it’s especially economically effective. Though I don’t know about the dressing as a cow thing. This week’s free stuff began today with free 12 ounce Slurpee’s at 7-Eleven, since today is 7/11 and the 85th birthday of the convenience store chain. You can get those until 7:00 p.m. local time. But there is more free swag later in the week (for those who know I keep kosher, I post even non-kosher free stuff info so my many gentile readers can partake):

•Starbucks. Hoping to become a player in the $8 billion energy drink market, Starbucks is rolling out Refreshers. To energize the rollout on Friday, from noon to 3 p.m. local time, it will give away 12-ounce hand-crafted Refreshers (valued at $2.90). Flavors: Cool Lime and Very Berry Hibiscus.

•Chick-fil-A. Dress head to hoof as a cow on Friday, Cow Appreciation Day, and get a free entree, side and beverage. Wear a cow accessory, such as a cow-spotted scarf, and get a free entree. Last year, it gave away 600,000 freebies, spokesman Mark Baldwin says. For social buzz, President Dan Cathy will do interviews dressed as a cow.

•Dippin’ Dots. Most of the chain’s 130 retail stores in 44 states will hand out small cups — worth $4 each — of Dippin’ Dots Clusterz (ice cream bits in chocolate morsels) on Saturday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. local time. The rationale, says marketing director Dana Knudsen: It’s National Ice Cream Day eve.

I love your freebie alerts – heading to 7-11 (Indian-muslim owned, but I’ll go in there to take a free Slurpee) now and I have an appointment on Friday near a Starbucks, so I and the wife will stop in then. Thanks, Debbie!

I too love your freebie alerts Debbie. Got my free coke slurpee for the drive home from work. I can’t stand Starbucks because of the crowds and high priced coffee. I love me some Chick-fil-A though. Something about that simple chicken sandwich with the two pickles. They are tops for me in the chicken department.

Debbie, your comments, “Poles murdered millions of Jews” on the Huffington Post was just plain vile, no class. I had family there also. Read up on your history my dear!
