Election Day freebies and deals for voters nationwide
If you need any more incentive to get off the couch and make your voice heard, voting can get you freebies and discounts from some well-known national brands.
Whether the past few months have seen you glued to the TV or purposely living under a rock to avoid election coverage, the day of reckoning is finally here. November 8 is Election Day, and if you need any more incentive to get off the couch and make your voice heard, voting can get you freebies and discounts from a fair amount of well-known national brands.
Sure, you can get access to these deals without voting if you find a way to swipe a few iconic "I Voted" stickers from your local polling place, but that seems like more work than just filling out a ballot and -- you know -- actually participating in the age-old democratic process.
If you're still not sure who to vote for, check out BallotReady, a new app that helps voters see where every candidate stands on the issues, because there are MANY more elections happening tomorrow than just the race to the White House! Take a second to inform yourself, then go vote and grab some free stuff as a reward for your patriotism.
Here are all the Election Day freebies we could find:
7-Eleven -- All customers get a free cup of coffee at participating stores when they download the 7-Eleven mobile app.
California Tortilla -- Free chips and queso when with any purchase when you say "Make queso great again," "I'm with queso," or "I vote for queso" at checkout.
Firehouse Subs -- Wear your "I Voted" sticker or wristband and get a free medium drink on Election Day.
Gold's Gym -- Bring in an "I Voted" sticker and work out your Election Day stress for free at any Gold's Gym location.
Great American Cookies -- Flash an "I Voted" sticker and get a free regular cookie at participating locations on November 8.
Krispy Kreme -- Customers with "I Voted" stickers get a free donut.
Zipcar -- The car rental service is offering free rentals to voters who need a way to get to their polling place. Cars are free from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. local time so Zipcar drivers can #DRIVEtheVOTE to the polls during the last few hours of the day.
Keep in mind, some states don't allow businesses to offer voting incentives like this, so access to these deals may vary depending on where you live. Call ahead to be sure, and go cast your vote tomorrow!
