Hey, here's another freebie for tomorrow that a few people just sent in. You can get a free cookie from Doubletree hotels just by walking in and asking for one at the front desk – you don't even have to be dressed up! They have over 185 locations nationwide, so if you live near a decent sized city or work downtown near one, swing by and snag the free cookie. These suckers are pretty good to boot, despite the gazillion calories I'm sure they contain. Or should I say because of the gazillion calories?2
Remember when I dressed up like a cow last summer in exchange for a free meal at Chick-fil-A? Yeah, that was awesome. Now the question is should I dress up like a burrito tomorrow in order to get a freebie at Chipotle? I believe the answer is “yes” and you should as well! Call ahead to make sure you're location is participating, but most restaurants will give you a free burrito if you show up after 5 or 6pm wrapped in tin foil. Technically you can dress up as a burrito, taco, bowl or salad and I'm seriously doubting that your costume has to be all that elaborate. I'll probably just cover my face in tin foil, poke a few eye holes, and then enjoy my tasty freebie for dinner.5
Hiffers! How I've missed you so over these past few days. I've been down in sunny Florida since Friday and it's been quite odd not hunting for freebies and answering e-mails all day long. Luckily it looks like Adam and Shaynon have covered things nicely here, so much thanks to both of them for keeping the freebies flowing while I've been away. They did such a great job that I even extended my vacation for another few days, but I'll be posting regularly while I'm down here.
In the meantime, remember to get yourtomorrow (Tuesday, October 28) between 2:00 and 6:00pm. Of course, if you have multiple Taco Bell locations near your work or home, you may want to enjoy an extra freebie or two 😉 5
I'm a general sports fan in that I can watch pretty much anything. Oh, football's on? Sweet, turn it up. Nascar? Okay, I guess driving in a circle's a sport. Aussie rules rugby? Heck yes! (seriously, I think more Americans would love this style, but I digress.) My true passion is baseball though, which is why I was thrilled when I saw this free taco from Taco Bell offer that might get more people to watch the World Series when it starts on Wednesday. Why? Because we only get the taco if any one player steals a base in the upcoming World Series.
Luckily, not only is history on our side (there's been at least one stolen base in each of the past 17 World Series), but there's going to be ample opportunity for somebody to swipe a bag since between the Phillies and the Rays, there are six players who had at least 20 stolen bases this year. My money's on either Philly's Shane Victorino or Tampa's Carl Crawford being the one to bring home this freebie for us.
But when can we actually get the freebie? If the stolen base occurs in Games 1-4 on October 22, 23, 25 or 26, we can get the taco on Tuesday, October 28, 2008. If the base is stolen in Games 5-7, October 27, 29 or 30, we get it Monday, November 3, 2008. (the official website says 3008, but I'm really hoping that's a typo!) Whichever day it is, we can get the taco between 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. So basically just plan on eating a lunch or dinner at Taco Bell pretty soon and enjoying a free taco while you're there 🙂6
