When Starbucks first opened, I’ll never forget thinking, “Who in the world would ever pay $3.50 for a cup of coffee?”
Well, millions of consumers later, Starbucks has laughed its way to the bank while many personal pocket books have taken a hefty toll from this “addiction.”
Would it surprise you to know that I splurge on Starbucks every single day? If you’re a faithful reader, you know there has to be a catch. Yes, I brew it myself and save hundreds of dollars.
So when my local Sam’s Club clearanced out Starbuck’s Winter Blend at the end of the season, I stocked up. With our food budget, this is one of those choices when I don’t mind paying out a bit more up front since I know it will save me an additional thirty dollars in the long run.
I do love going to a real live Starbucks establishment, but it’s a treat and not part of my regular spending habits. So when I find out that they are giving away free coffee this Thursday, April 15th, all I can say is, “WHOO HOO!”
Just bring in your own reusable travel mug this Thursday and receive a freshly brewed cup of coffee.
Now that is a GOOD thing!
That IS a good thing!
DH used to work at Sbux, so we have enough free coffee in our cabinets to last us until the end of time, practically. Mmmm, it’s SO GOOD!
Also, worth noting that if you just have to get your cup at the Starbucks store, they will give you a dime off if you bring in your own mug. I’m not a coffee drinker, but for those that I know that get a cup every day, those dimes will add up!
So cool… THANKS for sharing!!! Will be thinking of you when I’m enjoying my cup of Joe!
and I’ll think of you 🙂
Hey Trish! It’s Kelly Hobbs. And, Jen, thanks for the heads-up on FREE COFFEE!! Yahoo!
Also if you register your sbux gift card you can earn free coffee by paying with it. Just reload and keep going.
