I know what you are thinking, why is this in the Tech Deals section? It is here because all techies love coffee. so here is the deal:

Go to any 7-Eleven store near you on Monday Dec 31 starting at 11PM to Tuesday Jan 1 at 7AM for a free 12-ounce cup of coffee or other hot beverage. Participating stores will have free coffee signs in place.

The offer includes all 7-Eleven store coffees as well as gourmet specialties like cappuccino and hot chocolate. Participating stores will display a sign on the front window announcing information about the free-coffee program. Since ringing in the 1988 New Year, 7-Eleven stores across the United States have given away more than 1 million cups of coffee as part of its free-coffee program for late-night revelers and drivers. But that’s a drop in the cup compared to 365 million cups of coffee the retailer sells a year. 7-Eleven brews almost 10,000 pots every hour of every day of the year. A free cup of coffee on New Year’s Eve is a small way that 7-Eleven can thank its customers for their business and to wish them a happy 2008.
