If you didn't notice, today is election day. Several merchants offer free or discount promotional deals on election day.
You may need to show proof of voting for any of these deals.
Yahoo has a list of election day promotions and freebies. Not a lot of good stuff there, but I found one notable:
Uber car service is offering free rides to polling places to vote. They're in several major cities.
Fatwallet thread has a long list of free stuff from fast food joints :
- Starbucks will give you a free 12-ounce coffee. They will give the coffee to anyone who asks for it.
- Krispy Kreme will give you a free star-shaped doughnut decorated with red and blue sprinkles
- Ben & Jerry's (5pm-8pm) will give you a free scoop of ice cream
- Chick-fil-A will give you a free chicken sandwich with an "I Voted" sticker
- Shanes Rib Shack will give you a free Vote America Meal with an "I Voted" sticker
- Daily Grill will give you a free appetizer with an "I Voted" sticker
- Eatn Park will give you a free coffee
- California Tortilla will give you a free taco with an "I Voted" sticker
- Olive Garden will give you a free dolcini with purchase of any entree and an "I voted" sticker
- Fox and Hound and Bailey's Sports Grille will give you a free appetizer with any purchase if wearing an "I Voted" sticker
I have not verified any of these, so it would be a good idea to check the individual companies to verify the deal. Of course all the deals are only good today and some are more limited times.
