It seems the Free Comic Book Day always sneaks up on me. It’s like a pissed-off landlord, but instead of hounding us for the rent, it’ll give us a free comic book on Saturday, May 3, at participating locations. In unrelated news, I wonder if my landlord accepts comic books as a form of payment.

Today happens to be Ben & Jerry’s free cone day, which is awesome because I just so happen to love ice cream today. And any other day, to be honest.
All you have to do is stop in at your local Ben & Jerry’s before 8pm and you can snag a free cone!
I don’t know what’s taking so long, but somebody needs to make a calendar with all the important dates on them. I’m not talking about Christmas, Halloween, or Flag Day here, but the really important ones. Like National Cookie Day, which is today! In celebration, head to your nearest Great American Cookie and receive a free chocolate chip cookie!
I’ve always said one of my biggest regrets in life was not smelling enough of my toys as a child. So if you want to make sure you kid doesn’t end up like me, take them to the free Lowe’s Build & Grow Clinic on Saturday, December 14 where they can make a free toy train with scratch and sniff stickers! You’ll easily win Parent of the Year.
As usual, space is limited, so you need to register on-line beforehand!
You can get a free Krispy Kreme doughnut for wearing your costume on Halloween. It doesn’t even have to be a specific costume, so head on over whether you’re dressed up as a mummy, Frankenstein, or … are those monkey vampires? They look like monkey vampires.
If you’re out and about this weekend and like the idea of “diet” fast food, then swing by and pick up some free Burger King Satisfries. Finally, we can lose weight without eating stupid fruits and vegetables! The Nobel Committee should be ashamed for snubbing last weekend the scientists who came up with these.
So the title is a tad weird, but that’s because Starbucks is offering a slightly unusual offer today though Friday. Since “small acts of civility … make a big difference,” Starbucks will give you a free tall coffee if you buy a drink for somebody else in line.
Yes, it sounds counter-intuitive, and you’re not really getting a free coffee. But somebody else in line will! And since you’re already standing there to buy coffee anyway (at least I hope that’s why you’re standing in line. Otherwise we need to talk), why not “pay it forward” and make somebody smile?
I love it.
No need to print out this image for some free Panda Express Honey Sesame chicken today only. Just show it to the cashier on your phone and you’ll be set. I’d love to go grab some, but I’m too busy trying to shop for shower curtains and trash cans. Oh what fun!
I shouldn’t have to tell you Talk Like A Pirate Day is Thursday, September 19. I’m certain you all have it circled on the calendars and have given the kids your blessing to skip school for the day. But in between making your neighbors walk the plank and brewing some homemade grog, don’t forget to pick up a free Krispy Kreme original glazed doughnut!
September is National Shake Month (of course it is), so Johnny Rockets will give away free milkshakes on Monday, September 9 to anybody who says “yummy” when ordering.
If you really want to have some fun, go with a friend and concoct some goofy story as a cover to say yummy out loud repeatedly then act shocked when they hand you a shake.
Yeah, these are the methods I use to stay sane during the day.
