don't abuse a fantastic idea for people less fortunate. it's a great thing for Costa to do but I'm voting cold as you're clearly encouraging people to take advantage of it

Completely agree.
Cold what is wrong with some on HUKD first exploiting students and nus and now the homeless??
Exactly what others have said. A fantastic idea for the less fortunate and not for someone wanting to be tight and save a few pound

Some homeless people may use HDUK to get free things. It's a freebie so it should be posted.

But you was implying for non homeless people to use it
It's a shame really as this would of gone scorching and more people could of informed homeless people . I'd ask you to edit your deal for what it is , a nice gesture from Costa but you don't deserve any credit sadly .

While I don't generally agree with what the OP is proposing, it is a little discriminatory to only offer it to homeless people. What about less fortunate people who don't have money to buy a coffee? Considering the majority of homelessness is by choice why should other less fortunate miss out?

Really ? Think you are missing the point it's for someone who is freezing cold on the street to warm up. Not someone who is in a flat and chose to buy some beer instead of milk and coffee.

No that's my point. If you have a mattress on a floor in a room in a shared house and this takes all your money do you not think you deserve a coffee just as much as a guy who chooses to live on the street? Just because you have chosen not to live on the street you should miss out when financially you are no better off?

I'd say no , because they would be getting benefits which the government says is enough to feed yourself on . Therefore can afford a coffee if they want it's their choice what they spend the benefits on . Also not everyone 'chooses' to be homeless no matter what The Sun might tell you .

But homeless people are entitled to exactly the same benefit. If I choose to use it all to pay for a roof over my head rather than on drugs or alcohol then I'm not entitled to a coffee!

If you are homeless and you are eligible to be in this country then you can get benefits to put a roof over your head. If you choose to do drugs, drink, be antisocial or not conform to normal social behaviour and this causes you to be homeless you deserve a free coffee!?

Most homeless people have been sanctioned so don't receive benefits for not seeking work. Regardless the point is the homeless person doesn't have access to electricity or a kettle does he ? So in my opinion is the one who deserves a coffee . Going round in circles so will leave it there .
Merry Xmas

Neither does anybody else not looking for work. It's a lifestyle choice.

OK do you think this man deserves a coffee of not?

Does he have a radiator to keep warm and a kettle in the kitchen is the real question ? I understand people have it tough but it's not worse than sleeping on the street , so your argument is invalid . Good day

ps. RIP to the the guy who died in Costa today such a sad thing to happen

Lovely thought by Costa, totally overshadowed by the stupid 'no way of checking' comment in the original post and the sweeping 'majority choose to be homeless' comment. FFS.
