Ahhh, yes. If I could give up my starbucks addiction, I would be about 30lbs lighter, and $6K richer! Although I have tried, I just can't shake starbucks! I've always loved the boost I could get from caffeine, but never really liked hot coffee. I used to make my own coffee milkshakes, but now that there is a starbucks on almost every corner, why bother! I actually prefer to get my starbucks at local Safeway's because they have a promotion with every 7 I buy, I get one free. Just don't look at the receipt and see how many you have gotten free. That will make ya sick to your tummy. I've earned ohhhh about 200+ free. Multiply that by 7. OUCH! But my favorite is the ice caramel maccatio.
Starbucks.com as well sends me promotions to events. I was invited to the Portland Art Museum, and got free tickets to do so from Starbucks. And just recently received tickets to a see a movie for free.
