Here is what Denny's is doing Differently This year. Can't Post

Bomby ate there Today
Instead of Collector Cards
for little kids ( but they make great Bookmarks)

This year they have 4 Gift Cards!
So at the register you can purchase
A $10, or$20, $ 30 Gift Card
W/ either Bilbo, Gandalf, Thorin or Smaug's Eye
on it
& Mail it to Friend as
A Stocking Stuffer?

Also take Home the Place Mat

Well that would take a lot of Time, but [In reply to] Can't Post

Goto Denny's Website
Sure they are shown there..

My retuarant had just got them 2 days ago
So guessing they are on Display there
Also they cut their overhead this year
since there was only One window sign
& last year there were many..

I'll go to Denny' site now..to LOOK. For it.

3 Thingies Bomby learned [In reply to] Can't Post

1. No pictures yet on their Website.

2. Denny's has over 100 Restaurants
@ Travel Centers on
InterState Highway's..
so interstate Traffic will be exposed
To our Film.
Sounds like an Ideal Tie-In since these Travellers
are "Captured Audience"!

3. Likely you need to Buy a Card @ a Restaurant
so there can Track it's success.

The 4 cards are simple publicly shots
Smaug's Eye is way cool.

Here is One More Cool thing! [In reply to] Can't Post

If you Traveling on An Interstate
During these Holidays
Use the Denny' locator
Buy a Card for someone
& Put it in their Presents
As a Last minute Gift?

I bought two LOTR gift cards [In reply to] Can't Post

One was for either Borders or Barnes and Noble. The other was for a movie theater chain, I think AMC.

In both cases, I bought the card just to spend it and keep the card. In both cases, the cashier was really confused about why I'd keep a gift card that was 'empty' ... they usually just take them and recycle them to the next consumer.

I was confused as to why they would ever question my wish to keep those cards! :-)

In checking, it appears it was a Borders card:

I can't find the AMC card online.

The Denny's here do not have a good rep and all my visits to them have confirmed their rep is deserved. Wouldn't spend another dime at a Denny's even for The Hobbit.

sometimes I see... [In reply to] Can't Post

this little glimmer, with an attempt at hiding it, of realization in the eyes of another.. 'oh, she's is one of those people'. lol

I comfort myself with the knowledge that they don't know me and I will never see them again. I am not embarrassed.

what's really funny... [In reply to] Can't Post

...is when they back up slightly.

But maybe it's just Minnesota where one doesn't like to draw too much attention to one's self. haha.

I'm not born Minnesotan so sometimes I throw caution to the wind.
