You know those really smug people who always seem to get a free Pret? This week, you could be one of those people. Better still: you could experience an even greater, more altruistic smugness, and be the one to actually give the gift of a free Pret yourself.
Here’s how it works: from Monday (March 19) until Sunday (March 25) Pret A Manger’s shop teams will be giving away 300,000 free ‘make someone smile’ drinks tokens at branches across London. Note: some Prets won’t be giving out the free tokens, there’s a list of them below. The tokens will be given out at the discretion of staff, and there are no guarantees, but we can confirm that you’re more likely to get given one if you’re smiley, and ask how staff are. Don’t be a dick, basically.
The idea behind the giveaway is that you can then pass on your token in a ‘random act of kindness’ to another person. Spread the love. But if you’re feeling like you’d prefer just to make yourself smile, you could keep your token. No one will ever know.
Each token is valid until Monday April 30, and entitles you to one barista-made drink.

There are 300,000 free ‘make someone smile’ drinks tokens up for grabs at Prets across London from Monday March 19-Sunday March 25.
