85 Degree C Bakery Cafe Free Medium Sea Salt Coffee with Canned Food Donation 12/3 - 12/16 Southern California 85C B&M YMMV

+15 Deal Score
4,179 Views
While in the café today I noticed on their electronic menu that one of the slides said that you can get a free medium iced sea salt coffee when you participate in their can drive. After not finding the deal on their official site I asked to speak to the manager, who confirmed that if you bring in any nonperishable food items for donation you do get a free beverage. I ran to a Target next-door and bought a can of green beans for $.59. Sure enough I got the free beverage, regularly-priced at about $3.50. It's hard for me to know how widespread this deal is since it's not advertised online, but the fine print says valid at participating locations. So there must be more than one.

Participating Locations:
Irvine Center
Irvine Diamond Jamboree
Tustin
Fountain Valley
Garden Grove
Cerritos
Gardena
Torrance
Costa Mesa
+Possibly More

If you visit a participating location not on this list, let me know so I can add it. You can also call ahead.

Fine print includes the following:
1) Limit one redemption per day
2) Offer valid at time of donation (no rain checks?)
3) Participation varies by location

FYI, I was at the new Irvine Center location.

It ran through 2017 in SoCal. They only currently have BOGO Mondays through the end of the year, which comes out to about $2 each.

This deal is valid once per day through 12/16. Time to hit up the Walmart for $0.30 canned corn.

Don't donate dented or expired cans. The LA regional food bank sorts them out and trashes them. Total waste considering much of it is still typically edible.

I didn't know this, either, until just yesterday. And I go there a lot. They don't seem to be pushing publicity on this one.

Edit: NVM didn't see your quote lol

86 Degree has really good fresh baked items. Love how they shout when fresh items are coming out. Really highlights how fresh items are.

Participation varies by store. I spoke to a shift manager who confirmed all OC stores are participating. Maybe more too. I am keeping a list of stores. Let me know if you find one that's not on the list.

Just don't donate anything. These welfare people eat better than most workers.
