First things first, this was mentioned by thumbwax (see link) as an anno, but not posted as an idea.
Maybe he wasn't thinking on a grand enough scale, but some kind of HB Discount scheme may just work.
So here's the deal... As mentioned in the above idea, i am in the fortunate enough position to get free cinema tickets for my pals, so come to Aberdeen, and as i consider you all pals (apart from Waug... Just Kiddin'), i can get you into your film for free ('cept for the blockbusters on opening night).
Can anyone else offer similar benefits to other bakers, maybe record store discounts, or a few extra fries in your HB Discounted Happy Meal...

See thumbwax's anno... http://www.halfbake...e_20Movie_20Tickets
The idea was suggested here first. [MikeOliver, Oct 05 2004]

Mike doesn't live here. Just _try_ to get a HB discount! [Cedar Park, Oct 05 2004]

       I can get a discount (5%) for any Sydney (Australia) based 'bakers from a major electronics retailer/wholesaler as well as the supermarket chain that owns it (as well as its liquor branches) iff'n anyone is interested.

       Hmmm.. I can take your blood and use it for heart research. Any takers?

       So you don't mind me posting your idea then thumb?
All croissants will be shared equally with your good self (but you are gonna get half dem bones too).
MikeOliver, Jun 15 2003
  

       Of course not. While in the theatre of the absurd, I simply left an unpopped kernel of popcorn in the bucket - you popped it. bun appetit!

       Aberdeen... what city, state, country is that in?
HalfwayHebrew, Jul 25 2003
  

       City = Aberdeen
State = ...
Country = Scotland (near London England)
MikeOliver, Jul 29 2003
  

       West, somewhat, of Denmark.
bristolz, Jul 29 2003
  

       Aberdeen to London probably equates with London to Denmark, if anyone cares a rats ...

       So... you don't mean Aberdeen, Washington, USA?
Cedar Park, Jul 29 2003
  

       If anyone needs any cricket gear, I can get it a bit cheaper for you when we put in our next bulk order.
DrBob, Jul 30 2003
  

       No, i don't mean washington USA, but if they have a UGC cinema or if they open one, i may be entitled to freebies there.
Anyhoo, i am leaving Aberdeen in a couple of weeks, so this is a limited time offer.
MikeOliver, Jul 30 2003
  

       I was thinking he meant Aberdeen, Maryland (USA). Darn. Thought I had a HB'er that was actually close to me...

       Norman, OK: Cheap computer parts, below retail motorcycle parts, free (crappy) beer if you really WANT it (I know we sure don't).   

       Amarillo, TX: Free coffee, cheap computer parts, bellow retail skateboard parts. Of course, mohawk haircuts are no charge!

       Y'all like Golf?
Mr Burns, Apr 22 2004
  

       Ooh - Sign me up! Where, Burnsy?
Letsbuildafort, Apr 22 2004
  

       Hey, who dragged this back up?
I now work for a bank, so anybody need cheap money?
MikeOliver, Apr 23 2004
  

       yep,and a photocopier.
skinflaps, Apr 23 2004
  

       Another update... Am now with the Police (the constabulary, not the band!), so one free crime per person!
MikeOliver, Aug 06 2007
  

       Why don't you call it the Half-Masons?
theleopard, Aug 06 2007
  

       Felony or misdemeanor?
Road Show, Aug 06 2007
  

       Come on in to Philly Steakout (rochester, ny)   

       I'll sling any baker some extra steak, just say your a HB
evilpenguin, Aug 07 2007
  

       If anyone is ever in Dubai, I'll take you for a free scenic plane flight.   

       Shirley these discounts should all be 50%.

       Looks to me like MikeOliver is trying to put together a CV with enough jobs on it that he can become an author.
DrBob, Aug 07 2007
  

       This is just the highlights.. there have been some real crappy jobs in between!
MikeOliver, Aug 07 2007
  

       Working in a cinema is no highlight [Mike]. Since doing that as a teenager I have found all cinemas stink of bin bags.
theleopard, Aug 07 2007
  

       Depends which department you work on... Spending most of the day watching films, with the occasional game of football in the screens between shows and sword fighting with brooms, is a pretty good way to kill time between not going to lectures.
MikeOliver, Aug 12 2007
  

       Okinawa: cheap computer repair and networking.
Voice, Sep 21 2007
  

       ...Just found this. If anyone (low chance I admit) is ever going up to cape york (far north Queensland, Australia) - I've been living here for years and can give all the "inside" cape information, best camping/fishing spots, contact numbers for land owners and permit issuers, and if you're lucky, maybe a fishing trip or we'll go catch you a barra.   

       I can get you a few tons of cheap bauxite too, but whadd're you gonna do with that?
Custardguts, Jun 23 2011
  

       Smelt some aluminium, of course!
