US – Working on Black Friday just got awesome

SEATTLE – While countless people shop the day after Thanksgiving, for 20 percent of Americans, roughly 63 million people, Black Friday is just another day of work.  That’s why Seattle’s Best Coffee, part of Starbucks Corporation, is treating those working on the busiest shopping day of the year to a free coffee offer.

For the third year, anyone working on Black Friday, including hospital workers, IT professionals, retail employees, online entrepreneurs and stay-at-home parents, are invited to log on to the Seattle’s Best Coffee Facebook page to claim the free coffee.

Even those who are working in their PJs can participate in this Black Friday deal – because we know one-third of employed Americans who have the day off will still be checking work emails, joining conference calls or pairing another work-related activity with their leftovers.

“Whether those working on Black Friday are headed back to the office, supporting a bustling retail business or managing the kids at home, a free coffee is something we can do to create a little win in their day,” said Jennifer Dimaris, vice president, brand management for Seattle’s Best Coffee.

“At Seattle’s Best Coffee, we know our great-tasting coffee picks you up and sets your day on the right course.”

Free Seattle’s Best Coffee on Facebook and at Select Cafe Locations

People working on Black Friday can visit the Seattle’s Best Coffee Facebook page and we’ll send them a free coffee sample, which brews a 4-cup pot of rich, smooth and balanced coffee. Free coffee will be available now through Nov. 29, or while supplies last.

Those looking to enjoy a coffee break on Black Friday can stop by participating Seattle’s Best Coffee cafe locations on Friday, Nov. 29, to receive a free small cup of brewed coffee.
