Atlanta, GA (PRWEB)

August 15, 2011

MailChimp today announced a special promotion in honor of their 10th anniversary on Saturday, August 20th. The email technology platform has partnered with coffee shops in major cities around the US to give customers who come in on that day wearing a MailChimp t-shirt a free cup of coffee.

”We launched MailChimp on August 20th, 2001,“ said CEO Ben Chestnut. ”The only goal we had back then was to make email marketing less of a hassle. Now, MailChimp’s grown leaps and bounds with over 3 million users all over the globe. We wanted to do something nice for our customers to thank them for their business and support all these years.”

The promotion is simple: walk into one of the participating coffee shops wearing a grey MailChimp ’sketch logo” t-shirt and get a free large coffee or French Press coffee. Since debuting the gray sketch logo tees in 2009, the company estimates they’ve given away at least 100,000 of the soft American Apparel shirts.

Participating coffee shops can be found in Atlanta, Seattle, Washington DC, Austin, San Fransisco, Chicago, New York City and Los Angeles. For MailChimp customers who can’t make it to a participating coffee shop, Intelligentsia Coffee has generously offered a 15% discount to MailChimp customers who purchase coffee from them online on August 20th using a special promo code.
