Matt wasn't thrilled that there was a service charge to use Coinstar, so before we left the house we separated out all our quarters. He figured he could always use them at the carwash or something. Besides, there was a church rummage sale a couple days later, and I used the quarters to buy a lot of baked goods and a few books and these pictures that match my living room perfectly.)
Not bad for $6.50 in quarters!
But anyway, we took our pennies and nickels and dimes down to HEB. We started looking through the options on the Coinstar machine when we saw that we could get a gift card without having to pay any kind of service charge. And well, you can see where that went. We're really cheap. We like not paying service charges. Now we have a Starbucks card for almost $25. You can also get gift cards for several other brands, like Gap/Old Navy/Piperlime, Lowe's and iTunes, but we decided to go for one we could both enjoy.
I'm not a big coffee drinker, but I do like to go down to Starbucks for a cup of water and a brownie when I'm having problems focusing on my work. And I do enjoy their raspberry green tea frappuccinos too. (They're not on the menu, and they are delicious. Matt thinks they're horrible, and he is wrong.) So for our date night earlier this week, we grabbed a couple of books and headed down to Starbucks for some yummy drinks and reading time.
I'm glad we finally did something with all our coins!
What is your favorite drink at Starbucks?
