My one (and only) restaurant work experience included a stint as a server, and I was not a very good one: My signature spiel went something like, “Don't save room for dessert; consider sharing.” The following two deals from Jamba and Coffee Bean were made for pairs: best friends, significant others, co-workers, or whomever you think is deserving. More information after the jump!
The sweet deal from Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is only good TODAY at participating locations. Purchase two beverages for the price of just one! It doesn't matter which two, but you will be charged for the more costly drink. Perfect for those who don't have the same taste. By the way, I heart the Pom-Blueberry Ice Blended–just sayin'. Click here, be sure to read the small print, and call your preferred location to confirm they are taking part.
Not to be left out in the cold, team Jamba Juice is bringing alliteration to the holiday with its Sweetheart Smoothie. A blend of strawberries, peaches, nonfat frozen yogurt, yumberry (?) juice and pineapple juice, this treat appears to be seasonal since it's nowhere to be found on Jamba's standard menu. This specific deal is two Sweethearts for the lovely price of $5, but there are unfortunately no substitutions in flavor or size–take it or leave it. The saving grace is that you don't have to worry about an extra potty break–the Sweetheart offer is valid until Feb. 20. Your coupon and any attached strings can be found here.
