Caribou Coffee Donating 1% to Breast Cancer

You know me...I love donation offers! Click here to read on many different ways you can donate for free. It is nice to know, just for a tiny bit of my time, a good cause will get extra money!
So, here is the latest scoop on donations! Currently, Caribou Coffee ( my all time favorite ) is donating 1% of it's sales thru October 31st, 2008 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® to help fight Breast Cancer.
But, the way it works is you MUST load a specific Amy's Blend Gift Card and then pay for your coffee with that. You can keep that gift card and reload it to pay again and again.
So, what I did, when at the drive thru speaker, I placed my order then also asked for an Amy's Blend Gift Card with $5 on it ( just to make it simple ) and told them I would be paying for the coffee with the gift card. Then, I paid, they gave me the gift card with the remaining balance on it, and my coffee.
Going forward, I will probably load my card online at home before I head out. But, if I forget, I can always reload it at the window to pay for my next coffee.

In addition, you can also buy specific Amy's Blend coffee in their stores and $ will also be donated to the cause.
As always, don't go out of your way to buy this coffee for the donation factor, but if you find yourself at a Caribou Coffee anytime before October 31st, make sure to pay with an Amy's Blend Gift Card.
