Valpak coupon envelope (Scanned image by Ray Johnson)

Valpak representative, Dave Rose, gave us the heads up that there is a coupon for a free roast beef sandwich at Roll-n-Roaster (2901 Emmons Avenue).

Judging from some of their past shenanigans, we wanted to see the coupon for ourselves before posting the information. Sure enough, the coupon is inside the latest Valpak Savings envelope. If you haven’t already thrown the envelope out unopened, you will be rewarded with a 40th anniversary free roast beef sandwich with no purchase necessary.

You won’t have much time to grab this sandwich, because although the last coupon had an expiration of one year (a typo, apparently*), this one expires on February 7, 2010. Plus, the coupon doesn’t say so (the website does) — but, they are only giving out 100,000 sandwiches for free. The language on the offer begs the question: to avoid suspicions about the propriety of this giveaway — how will RnR be keeping track of the the number of free sandwiches given away?

Correction as of 1/30/2010: Dave Rose has informed us that the coupon with an expiration of one year was not a typo. Apparently, it was our misunderstanding. We apologize for the mistaken assumption.
