FRECKLES' PICK - WINNER

Free Iced Tea At Starbucks Today

Hey Starbucks fans, today they’re giving away something for free. The chain is handing out free iced tea between 1pm and 2pm. So that’s only one hour to get your hand on this afternoon freebie.

That means you have to hustle to take advantage of this deal, but the flavors might inspire you to shake it on down to Starbucks in a hurry. Here are the iced teas they’re offering:

  • Shaken Iced Pineapple Black Tea Infusion
  • Shaken Iced Strawberry Green Tea Infusion
  • Shaken Iced Peach Citrus Tea Infusion

If for some reason you can’t make it to your local Starbucks during that one hour window this afternoon, these new flavors will be sticking around. So you can still try one later, you’ll just have to pay for it.

Get A Dozen Krispy Kreme Doughnuts For Under A Dollar On Friday

The very first Krispy Kreme started selling doughnuts on July 14, 1937 – and in honor of their 80th birthday, they have a sweet deal for fans. This Friday (yup, that’s July 14th), you can get a dozen glazed doughnuts for just 80-cents when you buy a dozen doughnuts of your choice.

When you do the math, that means each of those glazed goodies is less than seven cents and that’s a great deal. And it’s not the only treat they have for customers. Krispy Kreme has also released a limited-edition birthday cake doughnut to celebrate. Happy birthday and thanks for all the sugar!

JASON'S PICK 

Donnie "The Great Tipper" Wahlberg Strikes Again

Attention, waitresses – if Donnie Wahlberg comes into your restaurant, make sure you’re nice to him. He’s clearly on a tipping tour. Last month, he gifted the overnight crew at a Waffle House in Edgewater, Maryland with $5-hundred bucks. 

This time, the New Kids on the Block star left a $2-thousand dollar tip on an $82 dollar bill at a Waffle House in Charlotte, North Carolina. He explained yesterday’s random act of kindness with, “My mom waited tables, and my dad tended bars-- for years! So, when I walk into a #WaffleHouse, and the staff treats me like a king, you better believe I treat them like queens!” 

As if that weren’t enough, Donnie also gave some of his fellow diners tickets and backstage passes to the NKOTB show.

KRISTEN'S PICK

Atlanta Hawks Brought This Couple Together And Will Pay For Their Wedding

This couple is about to tie the knot and they have the Atlanta Hawks to thank for it. Avery Armstrong and Ben McCleskey met at an event called “Swipe Right Night” hosted by the NBA team at the Phillips Arena in Atlanta back in 2015. The event let fans use Tinder inside the arena to meet matches in real time.

Armstrong and McCleskey both swiped right, liked each other and kept dating. They’ve been back to the arena for games and events after the original Tinder date night, including Tinder Night 2.0, where they met Hawks CEO Steve Koonin. He was so excited about the Hawks having a hand in the couple’s relationship, he offered to pay for their wedding, if they ever got married.

And now they want to take Koonin up on it. The happy couple had a baby and now they’re ready to say “I do.” So Armstrong tweeted and asked if the offer still stood and Koonin says, “I’ll absolutely make good on my promise for the Hawks to host your wedding.” Congratulations to the happy couple!
