It’s always nice when a big name brand offers something you might actually WANT when you may actually want it. Starbucks is having a free pastry promotion tomorrow from opening until 10:30 am (or until the pastries run out), all you have to do is buy a drink and choose whether you want a muffin, scone, croissant, or piece of coffee cake. You don’t even have to print out the coupon from the link above, you can just show the Barista this promo link on your mobile device.

Of course all this is to show off their new line up of pastries with no trans fat, no artificial flavors or dyes, and no high fructose corn syrup. They say the best way to get a consumer to buy something is to let them try it for free, so if you like it you will buy it.

Of course, if you are like me and 10:30am is still considered dark thirty, they will have more pastries (although you will have to pay for them) the next day; in this case it really is a case of you snooze, you lose.
