Bad: He received 315 coupons for doughnuts and coffee, each values around $3. As with all large prizes, he would have to declare it on his taxes. It turned out to cost him $237, even though as of last month, he had only used eight coupons.

Good: Lawrence Shipley, owner of the Houston chain, has offered to reimburse Choate for his tax hit. In exchange, Choate will donate the same amount to a charity of Shipley's choice. The Astros have apologized for the trouble, giving Choate a Jeff Bagwell signed baseball.
