If you're counting down the days to the end of the month and payday, you can bag a couple of freebies that will get you through another gloomy hump day. We've spotted the New Yorker Magazine 1-year subscription for free for the first time ever and a BOGO offer on all seasonal drinks at Starbucks. These freebies, and more are in today's list of five Editors' Choice deals that we found overnight and early this morning.
Top Coffee Deal
Seasonal Hot or Iced Drink
Store: Starbucks (at participating locations only)
Discount: Buy one, get the second for free
Valid: From 2 pm to 6pm until September 21
Do You Need It?: If you can't quite afford to take your beloved out on a coffee date, this 2-for-1 offer will save you a pretty penny on a little something sweet to share. It's the first buy one, get one drink deal we've seen at Starbucks since February and will save you a couple of bucks on your afternoon dose of Joe. (Note that some exclusions apply.)
Top Video Game Deal
Bejeweled 3 for PC or Mac Downloads
Lowest by: $11

Do You Need It?: Looking for a little distraction from that mounting pile of paperwork? You can download this iconic game without parting with a single penny and keep your procrastination budget-friendly. Since the next best store charges $11 for the download, we reckon it's a top freebie for any gamer who is stretched for cash this week.

Do You Need It?: With the change of season upon us, we're slowly getting prepared to rejuvenate our closet. With little to spend however, we're looking to Wet Seal and its killer $5 sale to sort us out for a small amount of cash. Luckily, it's discounted over 150 items as low as 45 cents, making it almost impossible to not find a bargain on its virtual sale rails.
Top Home Deal

Do You Need It?: If you're as prone to dropping and chipping your dinnerware as yours truly, then you may need to invest in some cheap and cheerful replacements. This 16-piece set costs a massive $66 less at Walmart than any other store. It features four each of dinner plates, dessert plates, bowls, and mugs.
Top Freebie Deal
The New Yorker Magazine 1-Year Subscription (47 Issues)
Store: Rewards Gold
Price: Free when you create a new Rewards Gold account, refer a friend, and fill out a survey and complete a product review
Lowest by: $70
Do You Need It?: You might have to jump though a few hoops to bag this deal, but we think it's well worth the 47 free New Yorker issues you can then claim. The price has dropped by a massive $35 since June and is free for the first time ever. What's more, it costs at least $70 for this year's subscription anywhere else.
Total Savings: At least $147
