  • Banks could give the travel mugs to new account holders and invite them to come in for free coffee that’s served daily in the lobby
  • Service providers of any kind could mail travel mugs out to customers and subsequently send them hot chocolate packets every month as a service reminder
  • Restaurants could create a gift-with-purchase promotion and invite patrons to return with the mug to receive a free beverage
