Have (Coffee) Card, Will Travel…

6 December 2009


“I’d marry you all over again, you know.” Those were my exact words when my husband presented me with an impromptu gift in the shape of Starbucks coffee card. Fully loaded with cash and ready to splash, I used my shiny new card to toast my husband's generosity with a toffee nut latte.

Handier than cash, the Starbucks Card is an easy way to pay for your coffee fix. You never need to count up your coins again to find enough to pay for your poison; you just pick up the credit-card sized card instore, load it with any amount from £5 to £150 either online or in store, and then use the card to pay for your treats. Easy peasy. What are you waiting for?

If you register your card online you can manage your account, top up your coffee funds any time and even see all your recent transactions, just incase you want to keep that caffeine addiction in check.

You card can be used in thousands of stores around the world, and once you’ve registered it online your balance will be protected against theft or loss. You can also opt in to receive news and exclusive previews from Starbucks, and if, like me, you’re partial to a dash of vanilla syrup in your latte, registering your card means the syrups are on the house, along with other extras like additional espresso shots, whipped cream or soy milk. And every time you use your card to purchase a 250g bag of whole bean coffee, you get a Tall drink of your choice absolutely free.

So why not slip a Starbucks card into someone’s stocking this Christmas? You never know, it might even garner you a proposal of marriage.
