It seems like as of late, Starbucks has been really pushing for the online registration of their gift cards. Now here’s another incentive: if you register your Starbucks gift card by July 14th you will get a free beverage coupon. So what are the benefits of registering your Starbucks card? You can get unlimited free coffee refills, complementary shots of syrup, customized milk choices (ie. skim, soy, etc.) at no extra charge, and a free tall beverage with the purchase of 1lb of coffee beans.
Well now I’m sort of peeved because I had at least two to three unregistered Starbucks gift cards (leftover from Christmas, etc.) which I just finished using up!! I could have really done with a free drink – working 9 to 5 in downtown makes me a corporate slave to beverage companies like Starbucks and Blenz.
**Hint: Want to make the most of your reward card? Order a (tall) vanilla (soy) earl grey (easy water) tea misto. That way, you’re only paying the price of a tea misto, but you get the soymilk and vanilla shot for free! Thanks to Wesley, an ex-barista at Starbucks, for that tip.
