|Valued friend = coupon sharer|
- First off, Coldstone offers free ice cream on your birthday if you join their birthday club. It's just silly not to do this.
- Grab a frequent buyer punch card to get that free ice cream on the 10th purchase. That's 10% your ice cream, even in combo with a coupon or other deal.
- Find a Enjoy 2 ice creams for $5 coupons (as shown to the right) and various other similar coupsons. Coldstone accepts coupons repeatedly, so when you give them a coupon, they give it back to you. This is a beautiful thing. So, grab a coupon, hold it tight, save it somewhere important because you can and will save again.
- My biggest piece of advice: Share with a friend. Why? Because if you don't have a coupon and you want lots of mix-ins (like me) and just don't feel like spending a bundle, convince your friend to like your ice cream or, if you must, compromise. So, get a chocolate ice cream with brownies and cherries (cause your friend likes 'em) and just get it a bigger size. Get a Love-It size, or even get a pint or a quart. Then ask for two bowls and two spoons and split the price! Congratulations, you just made your own discount.
