Get a $5 Treat to Keep You Cool

THANK YOU – It’s getting HOT. HOT. HOT.

Across the country, we are all deep in the middle of summer. For many of us, it took a bit to see the summer heat start. But now, most of the US is in the 80’s and 90’s.
Summer temperatures have us all sizzling.  Many of us work in air conditioned offices but for those of us who spend a good part of the day in the car that windshield time can be HOT, HOT, HOT, this time of year.
One tip we learned from CNET: to quickly cool your car, use your bottom vents. Because heat rises, this is apparently the best way to rid your car of the hot air. Once your car has cooled off, switch on your upper vents to continue to stay cool while driving.
Cool drinks also help. To show our appreciation for the time you spend in the heat, we want you to have a cold one on us.   
Be one of the first 100 people to place an order and mention the word “hot”  when you place that order and we will email you a code for a $5 gift certificate to Starbucks.  (one gift certificate per person) 

To place an order, email orders@bluffmanufacturing.com or call our team at 800-433-2212.

 

What are your cold favorites?  Some of ours are:

  • Iced Mocha Frappuccino
  • Iced Carmel Macchiato with double shot of espresso
  • Iced French Vanilla
  • Iced Coconut Milk Chai

For those die hard standard hot coffee fans the offer still applies, without the guarantee of cooling benefits.
