Yesterday, we talked about the new METRO Max Rewards promotion where light rail riders get cool discounts at places along the light rail line. It was great to see news coverage, bloggers and Metro spreading the word about the program. Later in the day, it was announced that our friends at Dutch Brothers Coffee have stepped up to offer FREE coffee for a year for the promotion.
We all know there are two Dutch Brothers locations along the line. The one near the Rural and University station and the “new” one near Central and Camelback station. These are great spots for a quick coffee at a reasonable price. They have some cool concoctions they brew up over there! With the new promotion, people are asked to take a photo of themselves and email it to METRO.
From a news release yesterday we learned:
Free coffee for a year
In celebration of the METRO Max Rewards launch, Dutch Bros. Coffee has generously offered to give one rider a year’s worth of free coffee! To enter, sign up to receive METRO Max Rewards and send a photo of you in front of your favorite Dutch Bros. location. There are six locations Valleywide; two of which are next to light rail stations at Central/Camelback and University/Rural.The contest will begin today through Tuesday, June 15. Email photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. More contest details can be found at www.metrolightrail.org/metromax.
Today, I noticed more information on the METRO Max page with details about the FREE coffee contest.
“Actual prize is a $1,000 Dutch Bros. gift card. All entries must be received by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 15, 2010. Only one entry per person allowed. All METRO Max Rewards subscribers, followers or fans are eligible for this and future contests.
METRO will randomly draw from eligible entries and announce the winner on Wednesday, June 16, 2010. Unclaimed or declined prizes will not be awarded. Prize is not exchangeable, transferable and there are no cash substitutions. No purchase is necessary.
Dutch Bros. and METRO fans alike are also invited to a Fan Rally at the Central/Camelback Dutch Bros. location on Friday, June 4, 2010 from 7 – 9 a.m. Purchase your delicious morning coffee from Dutch Bros. and sign up for the contest onsite and for free with the help of METRO staff.”
Check out Dutch Brothers online at http://www.dutchbros.com/. They are cool and they are “Rockin’ the Rail Life!” Remember, to enter, you can take a pic of yourself at ANY of their locations. We just happen to be partial to the two on the line… 🙂
