Election Day is upon us. And in addition to getting to choose the next leader of the Free World, there are a variety of freebies to be had. Which is a good thing, since taxes are likely to be going up next year, no matter who wins.
The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal will both allow non-subscribers to access their online election content for free on Tuesday and Wednesday, depending on how long it takes to figure out who won, according to CNBC.
Voters wearing an “I Voted” sticker — obtainable at polling places — can get a number of free products today, Daily Finance notes.
Here are a few freebies that your “I Voted” sticker can get you:
- Some Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) locations will offer a free tall coffee.
- Free star-shaped doughnuts at Krispy Kreme (NYSE:KKD) shops in Oklahoma, Arkansas and Texas.
- Free tacos at California Tortilla restaurants.
- A free cup of coffee at Books-A-Million (NASDAQ:BAMM).
- Free chicken sandwiches at Chick-fil-A locations.
