Three fun freebies: Coffee, smoothies, and Maxim

Bring your reusable travel mug to Starbucks on Thursday for a free fill-up. Also: BOGO Jamba Juice and 12 free issues of Maxim.

Treat a friend (or beloved blogger) to a free Jamba Juice smoothie with this BOGO coupon. Jamba Juice

Some days, even The Cheapskate comes up empty. I searched high and low, checked in with all my DealSpies (trademark), and even went rummaging in the old-but-still-good deals bin. Nuthin'.

Sure, game fans may want to check out Direct2Drive's spring sale, which includes a few goodies (like Fallout 3 for $14.95). But ultimately, this day is looking mighty "meh," deal-wise.

On the other hand, who's up for some freebies?! One to boost your energy, one to boost your health, and one to rot your brain. Here's the rundown:

  1. If you're lucky enough to have a Jamba Juice near you, print this coupon for buy-one-get-one-free smoothies. No rush: The coupon offer is good through April 25. Here's the store locator in case you need it.
  2. Mark your calendar: On Thursday, April 15, in a promotion that evidently has nothing to do with the IRS or tax returns, Starbucks will give you a free mug of coffee when you bring in a reusable travel mug. In fact, the promotion's all about saving trees and forests, which I applaud heartily. Good on ya, Starbucks.
  3. I'm not sure how it qualifies as either a trade publication or a business magazine, but you can get a free one-year subscription to Maxim just by completing a short survey at I admit: It looks a little suspect, but the only personal information you need to provide is a name and an e-mail address. Feel free to use a disposable one of the latter.

Anything here look good? I'm definitely down for some free Starbucks brew on Thursday.
