Smoothie King offering free gift cards for good grades

Getting A’s will not only help students’ GPAs, but it could also earn them a tasty snack this week.

The Smoothie King on University Drive will be giving away $5 gift cards, the equivalent of a free smoothie, to the first 25 students who bring an A letter grade on any paper or test and their TCU IDs into the store this week.

According to a release sent on behalf of Smoothie King, the promotion intended to give students a morale boost.

Sid Weigand, owner of the University location, said the promotion also intended to increase awareness of the company’s products.

Smoothie King extended the promotion to other universities around the nation in hopes of helping students perform to their highest potential with the help of healthy smoothies, Weigand said.
