If you go into Starbucks a lot, you probably have already heard of this promotion.
If you buy 4 coffee drinks, you get the fifth one free.
So while talking with Sam this morning, the light bulb went off. When you get to work, go to 4 co workers and offer to do the coffee run. They will love you for it. Insist on going no matter what. Order your 4 coffees and then get the 5th one for yourself for free!!!
How about that!!!
I think I have “outsmarted” the system for you….you can thank me later!!!
And here’s another brilliant idea… I can’t take credit for this one though. But a psychologist did a study on how to get people to do what you want. He found that instead of just asking for it…you start by making an outrageous request. Like, “Can I borrow $10,000? Of course he or she will say no…so then you make the real request…. Like,
“Fine, can I borrow $20?” Of course they’ll say yes!!!!!
