That's nice, but what about people who don't drink coffee? I don't drink coffee – It makes my heart beat faster than usual after I drink it.

I think people will set their home page to on Friday, receive the free coupon, then switch their home page back to whatever it was before. LOL =Op

If they think a cup of really bad coffee is incentive enough to switch to the mess that is Yahoo? They're crazy.

(Seriously. Dunkin Donuts coffee is revolting.)

The main reason Yahoo has not got the market share is because Yahoo search results just aren't as good as Google's. Instead of focusing on designing gimmicks and campaigns, they should just improve their search capability.

Well What if it set it as my homepage for one day and change it back to Google ?

Then again, I use Firefox 2 (Session Restore) so I don't use Homepage that much anyway.

I agree, Missy. Sounds like an incentive to keep the homepage at Google or any other page for that matter. What idiot thought Dunkin's coffee was going to get anyone to do anything but scowl?

Google's search results aren't really so great right now either. (Maybe they will get better when whatever they're doing on their infrastructure and algorithm is more complete.) But their interface is much better than Yahoo's cluttered, junked-up page.

Friend told me about the offer. I did it and took the printed coupon to DD. The lady there pretended to be dumb and said we only accept little coupons cut from magazine ads.

Perhaps nobody told the individual stores about this special.

(yes, I bought a cup of coffee anyway)
