free costa coffee today only, in uk

30 Oct

london 10.25am 12C sunny monday 2017

its really free too. no questions asked about the empty coffee cup from starbucks that i gave to them. they give small coffees though, so i asked for a latte. if i can get a large one, i would ask for a large cappucino, haha as you get more coffee in a large cup than in a small one. they put my latte in a plastic cup though, even though i would have liked it in a glass … but from what i see of the glasses they have, those glasses are very small, made smaller by the fact that they taper towards the bottom.

but it is interesting that sitting now in the cafe, i dont see anyone bringing in a rivals coffee cup to exchange for a free coffee… iwonder why… are people here in london so rich… or they are not that bothered about getting a free coffee. haha. perhaps that is so with londoners. they must be a business’s dream customers. they dont seem to be affected by price.

for eg, recently i have been getting free eclairs from a shop that has just opened in soho, and their eclairs are £5 each. when patisserie valerie sells cheesecake and all kinds of slices of cake for £3. each. you would think there wont be any customers, but not so. there are lots of paying customers in the store even though they know there is a queue outside waiting for the free eclairs offer to start.

they want us to twit about it or put it on social media, but i dont see anyone doing it so far.

so today, if u really want to binge out on coffee you could go to all the costas and get free coffee just by bringing a empty coffee cup from their rivals. haha. this offer has been advertised all over the papers so it is not that people are not aware of it.

 added 12.07pm. i have been here for quite some time now, but no one has come in to exchange a rival’s cup, and not many people buy food . they only get the coffee. to me that is very strange behaviour, but then as i constantly say, what do i know!!

      they are all beautifully decorated , that might be why they are so expensive. and they only sell eclairs.
