WOW!!! Thanks for posting that. Me and the wife always ask for the discount even if we know that a certain place doesn't offer it. You never know...they might give it if you pester them enough. Cinnabon gave my wife a 25% off (police discount) the other day. Again...thanks for the list.

Dang!!! I'll never hit all those places in the short period of time they are available. Guess I'll have to make up a short list of 10 or 12 and hit the streets early!!!!

This is cool...thanks, Brian!
