A Simple Lesson from Cinnabon



Let me share with you a little story on how Cinnabon reminded me that sometimes happiness comes in small packages, or sometimes, it comes for free. :)


My friend and I decided to kill time there while we're waiting to board our plane to Davao. Luckily, they have fast wi-fi connection that I was able to check my mails. We also got some treats, my friend had a Mochaccinobon (Php 105) while I had a Cafe Latte (Php 105).

I was so busy checking my netbook that I wouldn't notice that our receipts are "customer voice receipts", which would give us a free Cinnabon dessert if we answer the customer survey. This is kinda similar to the one I used to get at Starbucks.

We answered the survey right away so we could claim our Minibon (Php 85).

If my friend didn't see it, we wouldn't have free treats. And Cinnabon wasn't bad at all.



Lesson learned: take time to appreciate simple things, there might be something in store for you. :)

  1. I've never answered a survey before that comes with a free treat. This sure is a sweet deal. I do agree, that we should stop to smell the roses.

  9. Cool post Michy! favorite ko Cinnabon lalo na yung nasa SLEX ;-) Like you, I love answering surveys. One time, I won a curry beef pepper rice at Pepper Lunch just by answering their survey. ;-)
