Starbucks in coffee for votes storm!

Well, kind of.

Starbucks are offering everyone who goes into one of their stores (in the US, obviously) tomorrow and tells them they’ve voted a free cup of coffee. That’s kinda nice.

Now I’m not a massive fan of Starbucks – the one and only email of complaint I’ve ever sent was to them last week – but this is good. Very good. Free beverages for the nation… a bit Dr Pepperish maybe, but if it works, great.

Now hurry up and reply to my email. This goodwill won’t last forever you know.

[UPDATE: They’re sending me some ‘free beverage’ vouchers. w00t!]

    Nice idea (tho if they’re not asking for proof could end up being a way for an entire population to get a free coffee? Then again maybe that’s not so bad). Proud to be the first to comment on the new blog. Good to have the ramblings back again 😉

    Errrm, it’s also a shameless, direct copy of an ad by your new employer. And your current one Colman.
