June 2017

(Note: My full disclosure policy is here.)

May was certainly a slow month. Buy June is already shaping up to be better. We’ll see!

6-17-2017 – 1/2 Off Any Turkey Entree at Smashburger

This is like a flash deal since it expires tomorrow (6/18). I just found out about it. If you love Smashburger get 1/2 off any turkey entree with this coupon. I think it’s funny they say “turkey entree” because as far as I can tell they just offer turkey burgers. One opened recently near us, so we’ll have to try it. Half off is a fun incentive.

6-15-2017 – Teavana Happy Hour Fridays in June

Every Friday in June (June 2 – August 11) Teavana is offering buy one get one free handcrafted iced teas (24 oz) from 3-7 pm during their “Fri-YAYs” happy hour. Fun flavors include:

Beach Bellini (this one if my personal fave),  Strawberry Daiquiri, Pina Colada, Mandarin Mimosa


6-13-2017 – Chipotle Registers Hacked. Check Your Credit Cards

Hey everyone. This is not about a freebie or discount, but thought it important to post. It seems that Chipotle’s registers were infected with malware and hacked resulting in customer credit card information being stolen. This happened between March 24, 2017 and April 18, 2017. According to their website:

“The malware searched for track data (which sometimes has cardholder name in addition to card number, expiration date, and internal verification code) read from the magnetic stripe of a payment card as it was being routed through the POS device. There is no indication that other customer information was affected.”

They have listed all of  the locations that were affected (they say that not all locations were) here.

I haven’t eaten at Chipotle since the extensive E. coli outbreak they had…mostly because there are a number of other places in the area that are less expensive and have rewards programs. Still, I checked the list of affected locations out of curiousity and was a little surprised to find that all of the ones in my area were hit.

6-10-2017 – Free Iced Tea at Teavana

6-7-2017 – Free Bagel Every Day This Month at Panera Bread

Check your Panera Bread rewards account to see if you received this  awesome reward. Brad and I both got this reward and loved it! In fact somehow I managed to get it AGAIN this month. So carby. So good. If you have this reward, you can pick up a free bagel every day without making an additional purchase.

This type of reward doesn’t go out to everyone at once, so check your accounts.

This time I splurged and purchased one of their large yummy flavored cream cheeses. It’s much less expensive than buying cream cheese for a single bagel.

To have a chance at getting this reward at all, you have to be in it to win it. By that I mean join their rewards program. It’s simple and it’s free. When you join you’ll receive a free dessert reward. You’ll also receive a free treat reward on your birthday. The best part is when you get month long freebies like this. I’ve already had free coffee for a month. Brad had that reward too. So if you live or work near a Panera Bread, join their rewards program. Then you can plan your meals around that delicious carb-y bagel too!
