What better way to beat the Monday blues than with a free cup of joe? Cinnabon is offering all of its customers a complimentary cup of coffee on Feb. 15.
There’s no coupon or purchase necessary. Just stop in and grab a cup of steaming, hot coffee.
The free jolt of caffeine is Cinnabon’s way of celebrating its cameo appearance in the second season premiere of hit show “Better Call Saul,” according to a press release.
“The positive feedback from our fans after our first appearance in the debut season of ‘Better Call Saul’ was so tremendous that we’re eager to kick off the second season with the same energy,” Cinnabon President Joe Guith said in a statement.
“Better Call Saul” is a prequel/spin-off of AMC’s huge hit “Breaking Bad.” The show follows small-time attorney Jimmy McGill years before he makes a name for himself as Saul Goodman, one of Albuquerque’s most notorious criminal lawyers and counsel to America’s favorite high school chemistry teacher turned meth maker Walter White.
The second season of “Better Call Saul” — before returning to McGill’s early struggles — shows Goodman in the present day, hiding after his “Breaking Bad” crimes under a new identity as “Gene,” a Cinnabon bakery manager in Omaha.
Cinnabon celebrated the show’s 2015 premiere by giving away free “mini-bons.”
“We’re thrilled to collaborate once again with the amazing team at Cinnabon to give something back to the dedicated and passionate fans of the show. We can’t think of a ‘sweeter’ way to celebrate the return of Saul, Jimmy and Gene,” said AMC’s Theresa Beyer in a statement.
If you’re picking up a free Cinnabon coffee on Feb. 15, you might also want to snap a selfie with the life-sized “Saul” standee, which is located in select Cinnabon stores. If you post the pic to Twitter using #SaulSelfie, you’ll be entered in an AMC contest to win a trip for two to Albuquerque, the show’s hometown, and attend an exclusive “Better Call Saul” event.
