A ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Coupon
We’ve gathered here today to mourn the loss of AOL Instant Messenger, which is shutting down after 20 strong years. Now it joins CD-ROMs, 3-button ball mice, and the Microsoft paperclip guy (or Clippy, if you knew him well) in internet heaven.
AIM was always there for us. When we needed to send our crush ASCII roses, ask SmarterChild for homework help, or wAsTe TiMe TyPiNg LiKe DiS. No matter what, AIM never stopped working to make our life better (unless someone in the house picked up the phone.)
So use this coupon on the app that’s better than dial-up to order chowder, pho, or milkshakes and then pour one out for AIM.*

P.S. We also made this music video. From scratch. Please watch it.
*If you prefer not to waste good chowder, pouring it into your mouth is just as respectful. But not all is lost. Here are some things that will probably make you think “That’s still a thing?”: Angelfire (our first website was definitely not a Savage Garden tribute), Xanga (still waiting for that Livejournal invite), Ask.com (Jeeves went on to bigger and better things), Myspace (is your band even on it?), Pokémon Go (oops, wrong era), Solitaire (one is never the loneliest number), ICQ (if you were really cool or international), homestarrunner.com (ask us to draw you a dragon), and lawyers with fine print: This $2 coupon expires on Sunday, December 17th 2017 at 11:59PM Pacific Time. You must have an Eat24 account to use our code, which can only be used once on an order with a total over $15 before tax and tip when paying with Credit Card, Apple Pay, PayPal, or Pay with Google. The coupon is valid only on Eat24.com or the Eat24 app. So remember these great things, because you never know when they’ll stop being things.
