Free Coffee or Beer (in 3 years)

So I bought a new laptop on Friday. Not surprisingly the store that sold it to me Staples wanted to sell me an extended warranty. This one was different if I bought the warranty and never used it in its 3 years of coverage I would get a gift card back for the full amount of the warranty.

Of course the catch is that 3 years from now I'm unlikely to remember to fill out the paper work to get the gift card back. In fact I have only 30 days after the warranty is up to claim my gift card. I set google calendar to remind me on August 20, 2013 to send me an e-mail reminder.

I'm not 100% sure Google Calender is full proof. So here is where the free beer comes in. If you are one of the first 10 people to e-mail me on Aug 20 of 2013 with a link to this blog post I will buy you a beverage of your choice (value up to $5). If I don't know you I will mail you a $5 Starbucks gift card.

So will you remember in 3 years? Let's find out!

3 years ago I started my job at Towson here is a post about my thoughts on my first day.

Extended warranty? How can I lose?

Looks like google calendar is reliable! Time to redeem that warranty.
