PayPal wants to fund your morning coffee run for a week

It’s easy to get grumpy and confused about all the new payment-related apps out there (what’s wrong with old-fashioned debit?), but here’s a reason to consider downloading one in particular. PayPal Canada wants to give you $125 to spend at a bunch of Toronto coffee shops ($5 per person at 25 different downtown cafés until July 31). The only catch is that you have to download the free PayPal mobile app and “check in” to each shop in order to redeem the digital vouchers, which really isn’t such a huge hoop to leap through for free coffee and snacks. The list of participating places includes respected indie outfits like Fika in Kensington, Sense Appeal on Spadina and two different locations of Jimmy’s Coffee (you can see the full list here). Just think—if everyone in Toronto takes full advantage of the deal, that’s approximately $348,892,500 worth of free stuff.

July 21-31. Various locations, paypal.ca
