The Daily Grind: To what lengths will you go for 'free' limited-time goodies?

I like to think of myself as a person who covets his time and won't spend it frivolously grinding, but once in a while I fall for it.

On the sixth day of Christmas my true love gave to me: Vindictus, zebra stockings and giant spiders
