Coffee Mug Giveaway: Free Coffee Mug from Au Bon Pain Bakery

Hey everyone:

I hope you're all surviving winter so far.  Here's a great way
to survive the brutal winter, especially if you're living
in the Mid-West or eastern U.S. 

Au Bon Pain, a bakery and cafe chain with locations in
Boston, New York City, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Detroit, and Chicago
is giving away a free coffee travel mug.  You just need to sign up
through their main website
On this page, there is a link that says "Join our eclub,
get a free travel mug!".  Click on this link and once you've signed up,
you'll receive a coupon via email. You'll need to print off
this coupon and then present it at an Au Bon Pain location.

I'm looking forward to picking up my free coffee mug on my next
visit. And by the way, I've tried their chicken focaccia sandwich, which
was quite tasty. They make some pretty good focaccia sandwiches!

Blockbuster Express kiosks are giving out free dvd rentals.
Just go to  
On this page's right side, you can
sign up for their new releases email list, and they'll
send you a coupon for a free DVD rental.

Blockbuster has a had a tough few years, which
culminated in their bankruptcy.  They definitely are a smaller
operation now...but they do have lots
of these video rental kiosks now and you can find
them in convenient locations such as at
groceries and drug stores.

The DVD Player says: "Feed me with a dvd movie from Blockbuster!"
