On Wednesday, 8 May, anyone who shows up at one of its restaurants with a marked thumb will be eligible for a free cup of coffee, steakhouse chain Mike's Kitchen announced on Monday.
But there's a catch: the offer is only good in conjunction with a meal, so you'll have to spend slightly more than the price of the coffee in order to get one.
To be exact, the cost of the "free" coffee will come to R29 – which Mike's says is it's cheapest meal option – while Mike's charges R22 for an Americano.
Wimpy is also offering a free cup of coffee on voting day, for showing a thumb marked with the indelible ink intended to prevent double-voting – but has not said that it will require a purchase.
Meanwhile e-hailing company Uber is offering a R50 discount for rides to and from polling stations while they are open.
In a statement the chain said it wished to support South Africa, and its citizens, on voting day.
