Our ongoing coverage of freebies—free donuts, free gym access, free Slurpees, free pretzels, and so on—continues this week with three giveaways that are great for chilling out this weekend. Take advantage of two cold drink freebies on Friday, and a flip-flop giveaway on Saturday, all with no purchase necessary.
At participating locations of this convenience store chain, Friday, June 19, is being ushered in as the sixth annual Free Chill Zone Day. All customers can swing by and pick up a Chill Zone beverage—any frozen or fountain flavor you want—free of charge.
Tropical Smoothie Café
The other faux holiday being celebrated on Friday is National Flip-Flop Day, which concerns actual flip-flops rather than politicians who can’t seem to make up their minds. The Tropical Smoothie chain has made a traditional of hosting a giveaway and fundraiser on National Flip-Flop Day. From 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., all customers wearing flip-flops are welcomed to a complimentary 24 oz. Jetty Punch (strawberry-banana) smoothie. In addition, Tropical Smoothie CEO Mike Rotondo will be giving out free smoothies in Manhattan as he walks the length of the island as part of a fundraiser aiming to donate $1 million for Camp Sunshine, a vacation spot in Maine for terminally ill kids and their families.
Following up on a flip-flop giveaway earlier this month, Old Navy is hosting its annual flip-flop sale on Saturday, June 20. Stores open as early as 7 a.m., and the first 50 customers at each participating location will get a pair of flip-flops free. After that, flip-flops are priced starting at just $1. Bear in mind that even when there isn’t a sale Old Navy flops can be had for as little as $2.50.
