imageOk, so this one may not be directly business related; however:

  1. Yes, I’ve been known to enjoy a cup of coffee now and then (yeah, yeah, maybe more than one…)
  2. Being from Seattle (you know, the place that literally has Starbucks stands in the parking lot in front of another Starbucks, seriously), it’s practically like National Seattle Day
  3. I know many of you happen to enjoy a cup of coffee on several occasions
  4. Who doesn’t like free stuff and discount offers?
  5. C’mon… I’m the guy that launched the “Less Than Coffee” campaign several years ago, so I have some affinity to the old ‘cup of Joe.’ Smile  (Hey, maybe this is business related after all!)

So in the spirit of National Coffee Day, and just for fun, here are several of the free coffee and discounted coffee offers I have seen for today that you may want to take advantage of:

Thanks to the Examiner and Today for sharing the offers above that I pulled together here for you. There are probably several others, but this is the quick list I saw, so thought I would share them with you. Besides, how could free coffee hurt in the quest to drive positive partner experience and satisfaction? Smile
