Free Starbucks on Sundays

Now this isn't exactly what you think - no free coupons or discounts on this one - but here's a way that I've discovered where you can go to Starbucks and get a free drink (or have it paid for at least).

Many a Sundays I've been driving around town and have seen people selling Sunday papers on the corner of busy streets to anyone willing to pay a dollar. There's always a little demon in my head that says "think about all the coupons in there!" but then, my angel tells me "that dollar could go to paying for more important things, like replacing your year old toothbrush!" Fortunately, the angel in me prevails - although the toothbrush part is still pending - and I go on my merry way.

However, I discovered a couple of Sundays ago that the Starbucks near where I live has at least one copy of the Sunday paper either sitting out for customers to read or left by someone. And in that paper, those same coupons are still there because I presume that anyone willing to buy a cup of joe at Starbucks is not going to bother sifting through coupons like this regular joe. So for the price of a cup of coffee (of frappucino if you prefer), I get to read the Sunday paper, AND I take with me any coupons that I could use. The coupons in themselves more than pay for the coffee, and there you have it, that's how you get free Starbucks on Sundays :-)
