My 5 Favorite Promotions of the Week: Shirts Dyed With Actual Coffee, LeBron's Taco Tuesday Tees and More
Guys, I know I say this every week, but this week especially featured a ton of amazing promotions. I actually had to create an entire bracket challenge to narrow down my list to five. Okay, so I didn't really do that, but I did stare at my list of social media bookmarks for an extended period of time, deliberating over which ones would make the cut.
In other words, keep up the great work, everyone. You are all creating exceptional things.
Let's get into this week's fave five!
1. Reanimator Coffee T-shirts
Well, I can honestly say receiving the notification about this T-shirt in my email was an effective marketing tactic. These shirts are dyed with actual coffee, which is a great way to highlight that you make great merch and great coffee. I don't even live in Philadelphia anymore, but I'm already trying to plan when I can visit Reanimator again. Job well done.
2. Chance the Rapper Merchandise
In support of his new album, "The Big Day," Chance the Rapper released some new merchandise. I am a big fan of this T-shirt, available in green and white.
3. LeBron James Taco Tuesday Tees
You know what day it is …

I feel a little odd counting this one because the T-shirts are not for sale yet, but LeBron James created customized tees to celebrate Taco Tuesday. That seems like a slam-dunk promotion to me. (See what I did there?!) And yes, I think these would be huge sellers.
4. Los Angeles Angeles Tie-Dye Shirts
This groovy tee is Rengifo approved. 70s Throwback Weekend is coming! The 1st 30,000 fans on 8/16 will receive a Tie Dye Shirt, courtesy of Draft Kings.

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a big fan of the '70s throwback tie-dye trend, so I give this promotion two groovy thumbs up. I might even consider making the drive to Anaheim for one of these bad boys.
5. Chips Ahoy Merchandise
We came up with fun new merch for #NationalChocolateChipCookieDay to help you keep your 🍪 right where you want them.. close to your 💙❗

We covered this in detail here, but it's too good to not include in the Fave 5. In support of National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, Chips Ahoy joined the list of food companies getting into limited-edition merchandise. The Cookie Rig is insane but, I've got to say, I really want the cookie tee.
