Free Stuff on Tax Day

So did you get your taxes done yet?  Granted, if you’re not in the United States, that question is kind of moot.  My taxes have been done for ages.  I did mine on OLT.  Haven’t gotten my refund yet though. Anyway, here’s a list of free stuff you can get today.  This is taken from a number of different sites.  Hope you get something out of the list.  The only thing I can get on here is the free cookies at Subway but there’s none near me.  🙁  Oh well.

Free Grand Slam Breakfast at Denny’s – 2/3/2009

This just came my way.  It’s being reported that Denny’s will run a commercial during the Superbowl offering a free grand slam breakfast on February, 3rd, 2009.   Haven’t seen much in the way of sites promoting this and I’m not going to be able to watch the Superbowl tonight.  Would love to hear back from someone if they see it on television.  We actually have a Denny’s here in Charlotte.  Well one left, just north of the city. Here’s the copy: Every guest from 6AM – 2PM on Tuesday will receive 1 free Grand slam, and 1 free coupon book with 8 coupons in it. Each coupon book has 4 BOGO’s, 2- 25% off coupons, 1 coupon good for free dessert , and 1 coupon good for a free order of pancake puppies. Each Denny’s in the US received 1,000 of these coupon books to hand out to guests on Tuesday who order a free Grand Slam. Per Denny’s Corporate every store also received 500 Grand Slam rain check coupons. Denny’s has instructed each manger to hand these rain checks out good for a free Grand Slam to any guest who can’t wait. Denny’s spent 3 million on the Super Bowl ad, and tons more on a full page ad this coming Monday in USA Today. They are taking this very seriously and instructing all stores to staff as if it’s a major Holiday and for the staff to be as friendly as humanly possible. Commercial during the SuperBowl will announce this. And don’t forget that we’ll have iHop’s Free Pancake Day on the 24th as well. edit: This has now been confirmed.  A copy of the commercial is after the fold if you want to view...

2009 National Pancake Day – February 24th

Here we go again. Get your free short stack of pancakes at iHop on February 24th.  They do ask you to consider making a donation to support local children’s hospitals through Children’s Miracle Network, or other local charities. (Tipping the wait staff would probably also be a plus.) The one I usually go to doesn’t go along with this promo but there’s a couple more around Charlotte that I can try. Discovered from here. I wonder if anyone will see...

Photos from Newell Presbyterian Church

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.) Gallery 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.

Looking back at January

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.) – Download Dragon Magazine and it’s Part #2 article. – Mac Desktop Wallpapers – 50 Things NOT to do at Hogwarts (And I feel bad about that as it’s not even mine.) – Robot Chicken: Charlie Brown And The Great Pumpkin – Download Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows? (You can but not with those links.) – Family Guy Videos – Rock Lobster – Movable Type 4.1 gets released (*shrug* All I said was that it was released.) – Crash on Volturnus – Chapter 1 (I really should go back and work on that. I liked writing that stuff.) – Pairings (Another old Daria fanfiction piece that I had written way back when.) – How to stop the irritating “Updating your computer is almost complete – Restart Now?”...
