Stop in Starbucks on July 4th and get a free tall coffee.
This free cup of Joe is part of Starbuck’s effort to get Americans talking about the upcoming presidential election. Here’s part of Starbuck’s message:
Friday, June 29, 2012
Posted by Howard S., Starbucks chairman, president and chief executive officer
On Independence Day, our country celebrates the promise of America.
It’s a day to remember that the principles that bind us together vastly outweigh what keeps us apart. The freedom to dream and the opportunity to create a better life – not just for ourselves, but for each other – has always defined our great nation.
I am a product of that American Dream. As a kid who grew up in public housing, went on to get an education at a state university and build a business, I am grateful for what this country has made possible for me. In turn, at Starbucks, we have always tried our best to honor our responsibility to the communities we serve.
And on this Fourth of July, our communities need all of us.
Across the country, millions of Americans are out of work. Many more are working tirelessly yet still unable to adequately care for their families. Our veterans are not being welcomed home with the level of support they deserve. Meanwhile, in our nation’s capital, our elected leaders are continuing to put ideology over real solutions. I love America, but we all know there is something wrong. The deficits this country must reconcile are much more than financial, and our inability to solve our own problems is sapping our national spirit. We are better than this. America’s history has showed that we have accomplished extraordinary things when we act collectively, with courage, creativity, and generosity of spirit—especially during trying times.
As we celebrate all that is great about our country, let’s come together and amplify our voices.
Let’s tell our government leaders to put partisanship aside and to speak truthfully about the challenges we face. Let’s ask our business leaders to create more job opportunities for the American economy. And as citizens, let’s all get more involved. Please, don’t be a bystander. Understand that we have a shared responsibility in solving our nation’s problems. We can’t wait for Washington.
At Starbucks, we are trying to live up to our responsibility by increasing our local community service and helping to finance small-business job creation with Create Jobs for USA. Our company is far from perfect, and we know we can do more for America. But we need your help. We need your voice.
Join the national conversation with #INDIVISIBLE. Starting today, I invite you to share your view of America, and how we can all put citizenship over partisanship. On Instagram, post a photo of the America we all need to see. On Twitter, provide a link to an innovative idea. Blog about who’s making a difference in your community; or on YouTube, share how you made your American Dream come true. No matter where you post, if you use the tag #indivisible, Starbucks will do its part to collect and amplify your voices.
To spark the conversation in our stores, your local Starbucks will proudly serve everyone a free tall hot brewed coffee on the Fourth of July.
Together, we can set a new tone in America. We hope you agree that doing so is a powerful way to celebrate our nation’s birthday.
In 2012, America needs to win the election more than either party does. It is time now to join together as Americans. It is time, whatever our differences, for us to strive and succeed as one nation – indivisible.

Beer – Busch’s is selling 15-can packs of Bud or Miller Lite for $9.49. That’s 63.2 cents a can. Meijer has Bud or Bud Lite in 24-can packs at $14.96 or 62.3 cents a can. If you’re not a big fan of Miller, pay less.
Pop – Meijer and Busch’s are selling pop four 12-packs for $10. That’s 20.8 cents a can. It’s hard to beat that.
Hamburger – Meijer also has ground chuck for $1.97 a pound. You can do better by buying pre-made patties at Walmart, but for my money, fresh ground chuck is tastier.
Hotdogs – Everybody is selling off-brand dogs for 99 cents. The kids probably won’t care. Otherwise, Kroger has Oscar Meyer eight packs for $1.49.
Rolls – Run-of-the-mill house brand bread for $1 for eight rolls everywhere.
Spareribs – Walmart wins the sparerib contest, selling them for $1.98 a pound.
Chips – Lays is offering a two-for-one deal and all the stores, including Kroger, are playing along. That brings the price down to about $2/10.5-ounce bag. Don’t pay anymore. The family packs may seem like a better deal, but do the math. In this case, buy-one, get-one is a better deal most places.
Watermelon – It may not be worth the trip, but Aldi has seedless watermelons for $3.49, which is a few cents less than the others.

The best deal I could spot was on red and green grapes at Meijer for 99 cents per pound. Meijer also has peaches and nectarines for the same price.
Kroger is selling peaches 3 pounds for $5 — about $1.66 a pound — a deal that is not nearly so good.
The deal of the week doesn’t have anything to do with groceries. It’s Walmart‘s offer to let people buy things from its website without using a credit card. You order off the Walmart website, after that you have 48 hours to go to a Walmart store and pay in cash. Then Walmart will deliver whatever you ordered. I see this as good news for people who can’t or don’t use credit.keep looking »
