In-store Freebies

Postby Shopper X » Fri Nov 15, 2013 9:32 am

What free items are stores offering this year, to entice people to go to their stores to shop? (I am too lazy to go looking through all the ads, so I'm hoping other people will do it for me.)

The ones I know about:
- JC Penney is giving away free snow globes again.
- Costco is again giving away free copies of this year's cookbook.

Is it my imagination, or is Sam's Club no longer giving away free breakfast this year?
And, is Beall's (Florida) no longer giving away free ornaments?

Home Depot always has coffee and donuts, and their employees have the best attitude. :)

I don't see free coffee and donuts listed in the adscan (and I've never seen them in previous years' adscans either). I think that it might just be something your local stores do unofficially.

We used to have Ben Franklin craft stores here and they would give $10 gift cards to the first (insert random number here) people in line. AC Moore bought them out several years ago, but still gave away the gift cards. Last year they advertised it as a gift card giveaway, but when you got into the store it was a coupon for $10 off of a $10 purchase and had to be used that day (whatever, it's better than nothing!). This year...nothing :cry:

I miss the gift cards.

Would the gift card to the first 80 people at Sports Authority count? It's a scratcher that's worth $10-$500 I believe.

I go every year but have never won more than $10. I think it can also be applied to anything in the store, it just needs to be used in the same day.
