APRIL 3-30: FREE COFFEE+TEA AT PEETS!
Starting April 3, EVERY DAY, 1--3pm, FREE COFFEE AND TEA! What a deal. Every single day this month, starting this Monday. At Peets Coffee stores.
They are doing it in honor of Peets' 40th Anniversary.
Note: I saw this in Westwood Village, but the sign made it sound like ALL Peets locations are doing it. In Westwood, Peets is at the NorthEast corner of Westwood Blvd and Lindbrook. There are several other Peets locations around LA (for example: on Sunset, in west hollywood; in Beverly Hills on Beverly Drive south of Wilshire; etc).

FREE YEAR of PLAYBOY DAILY! EXPIRES 12/31
for all the details on this offer. You get a lot of cool Playboy online content, free, for a year!
But you must act before 2005 ends.
You do have to provide a credit card, but there is no billing if you cancel before 1 year is up. If you forget, they bill you 12 bucks for another year of Playboy Daily (so don't fret too much).
Here is their fine print:
"Your 1 year membership to Playboy Daily is TOTALLY free. Your credit card will not be billed for this transaction and is required for age verification only. However, unless you cancel before the end of 2006 we will automatically bill for the following year subscription at our standard $12 annual price. To protect your privacy, the charge will appear on your credit card statement as PEI*ONLINE 800-276-6048. Enjoy this complimentary membership.”

AOL OFFERS FREE TRIALS OF SEVERAL ADVANCED SERVICES, EVEN FREE PHONE MINUTES
So, even though AOL has been making a big push into offering free online content (and making money with ads on such content), it still wants to get new paying subscribers, and this enticement is intended to show some of its cool advanced features (which cost extra $, above the monthly member fee). Examples: phone services via broadband, online music downloads, caller alert, and more.
For more info, go to www.aol.com
How will Google's recent investment into AOL affect all this? Perhaps Google will develop new services for AOL. Also, an AOL spinoff IPO (away from Time Warner) is one rumored possibility, in a year or two. Holy Deja Vu: Could it be AOL will become a darling Internet stock again, leading to late-nineties-esque mania once more? Stay tuned....
