    Actually, there probably won't be any lines after today and you can still get your free cookie just by recycling a gently used book! A good deed and a free cookie - it's a win-win for everyone!

    Thanks for info. I usually skip these rather than wait in a huge line.

    I know - I was clearly half asleep when I posted this last night! I changed the date to the correct date - today, Friday, October 1.

    Macharsam - You are so right - this is a fun freebie for those already going to the participating malls or those who are near them anyway. With any deal, you always have to consider whether it is convenient to take advantage of it. Sounds like you will be skipping this one, but I am sure there are many others who will be able to take advantage of it.

    If I have to go out of my way to get something free, then it's not really free. There is always a price..:-)

    There isn't an 10/2 on a Thursday this year...from the site, it appears to be Friday 10/1 from 10 am - 2 pm.
