Starbucks is probably my favorite place to go in the fall and winter. I’ve noticed that I don’t drink it nearly as much in the spring and summer months for some reason. I think there is just something about a crisp fall or winter evening that really makes me enjoy a warm pumpkin spice latte a lot more than I normally would.
On December 1st, Starbucks is starting a campaign through the very popular (RED) organization. Every time you buy a Starbucks (red) exclusive beverage, which I believe are the Peppermint Mocha Twist, Gingersnap Latte, and the Espresso Truffle, Starbucks will donate 5 cents to the Project (RED) Global Fund.
Adding to the awesomeness of Starbucks, they have just introduced a new savings card called Starbucks Gold. How amazing is this? Well, it’s $25 for a year of savings. Basically, you got 10% off ANYTHING in the store at any time for an entire year. When you purchase the card you get a free drink of your choice! When you register the card, you get a free drink of your choice on your birthday (mine is January 24th!). You also get discounts and coupons in your e-mail throughout the year. How awesome is this!? I can’t believe how amazing it is. I definitely go to Starbucks enough to take advantage of the 10% off every time you purchase. This includes merchandise, but does not include digital downloads.
I was going to ask for one of these for Christmas but I think I am going to just buy one myself so I can start saving!
Are you a Starbucks fan? I may or may not be giving some of these cards out via my website this holiday season! Check back later for more details! 😉
