It’s Friday, so let’s keep today’s post short and light. I want to talk about two of my favorite things; Pizza and Free Stuff. They just sound good together in the same sentence, don’t they?
Yesterday, I stopped by a Papa Murphy’s take and bake pizza to pick up a cheese bread. We were having frozen pizza at home, but I thought I would supplement it with the cheese bread as it’s one of my son’s favorite things to eat. I paid the $3.50 cost, and grabbed a cheese bread off the rack. As I turned to leave, the cashier reached out his hand to give me my receipt.
â€œIf you call the number on the bottom and do a short survey, you’ll get a free cheese bread for next time.â€
How can anyone turn down free cheese bread?
As soon as I got home, I followed the instructions on the bottom of the receipt, answered a few questions and got a code that entitles me to a free cheese bread the next time I visit Papa Murphy’s.
I earned a free cheese bread by spending less than 5 minutes completing a short telephone survey.
Papa Murphy’s is a place we get food from fairy frequently, whether it’s pizza, cheese bread, or both. They have this free cheese bread for answering a survey periodically, but it doesn’t last very long. Similar to the Subway promotion late last year, I plan to take full advantage by stocking up on cheese bread codes. While the promotion is still occurring, every time I visit Papa Murphy’s I’ll make sure I complete the survey, write the code on the receipt, and tuck it away in an envelope for use later.
Situations that allow a person to get something free they like and use often in life don’t come along very often. When they do, you have to latch on to them and ride that pony as far as it will take you.
When was the last time you came across a promotion that allowed you to get something you like for free, or at a significant discount? Did you take full advantage of it?
