Free Coffee Days in Boston from SeamlessWeb.com!

"409 in your coffee maker..."

Back in my investment banking days, I was used to work 80-100 hour weeks. Now if you do the math, that mean a lot of dinners in the office, 5-7 days a week. Our firm (and most of the other Wall Street banks) used a service called Seamlessweb.com, an online meal delivery system that allowed account holders to order off the menus from a variety of local restaurants and delis. Although eating from a takeout box almost everyday for two years was less than ideal for a food lover like me, I had to give Seamlessweb a ton of credit for their wide variety of options that included everything from the $5 bodega sandwich to $20 rolls of sushi dusted with gold flakes. (Plus, I shudder to think what we would have had to eat if Seamlessweb did not exist…)
Working hard for the $$ dinner!
Not unexpectedly, Seamlessweb’s ingenious business model caught on like wildfire and the company has now expanded into 27 other cities, including Boston! As part of their expansion, Seamlessweb is also bringing their “Free Coffee Days + Coffee Sweepstakes” to Boston this week!

From their press release,

"After two successful years in New York City, SeamlessWeb is bringing its Free Coffee Days promotion to Boston! From February 1st – 4th, the online food delivery and takeout ordering service will hand out over 10,000 free cups of coffee all around the city from a SeamlessWeb branded truck. Free Coffee Days will also continue for a third year in NYC beginning February 1st. 

To coincide with this promotion SeamlessWeb is launching a social media photo sweepstakes, where people can Tweet or post to Facebook a photo of their free coffee to win $100 in food. In addition, SeamlessWeb is offering new customers $5 off by using the code FREECOFFEE ($10 minimum purchase). Visit the Free Coffee Days site
to find the locations to receive your complimentary cup of joe and the full details about the photo sweepstakes:

Besides handing out free coffee, SeamlessWeb
is always available for people to order delivery and takeout from over 380 restaurants in the Boston area and 3,500 restaurants in New York City."
