Alright Schultz, I'm going to give it to you. You're listening to your consumers - gotta love that. You understand that those $4 drinks are gettin kind of pricey during these tough economic times. I'm digging it. As part of Starbucks holiday savings strategy, they just rolled out: 1. Starbucks Gold: Join for an annual membership fee of $25 and receive: * 10% off most purchases in participating U.S. Starbucks stores * A free drink when you purchase your membership in-store Then when you register, you'll unlock additional value: * A free beverage on your birthday * Exclusive offers and discounts throughout the year * Free Wi-Fi access for up to 2 hours each day in participating Starbucks stores 2. Starbucks gift cards at Costco: For the first time ever, Starbucks is going to sell gift cards for less than face value. Run to your Costco to get five $20 Starbucks gift cards for $80. Nice deal! 3. Cheaper holiday gifts. "We revamped holiday from soup to nuts," Schultz says. A Starbucks coffee sampler that was $14.95 last year is $12.95 this year. CDs were $14.95 last year but are $12.95 this year. Tables with gifts under $10 will be set up in many stores. With the free election coffee and these nice discount offers we may be turning a corner, Schultz... Source: USA Today

  • Thanks! Just discovered the GOLD CARD program today. I bet 20% of the $25 membership goes to pay for the brochure. We are talking metallic spot varnish, saddle stitch, and die cut people! We did the calc. and it's worth it if you visit more than once a week.

    Got the CostCo package - $80 for five $20 bonified Starbux cards. Not bad!

    What's up with this white one, and how do I get it?

  • Now I won't have to go to the Barnes and Nobles Starbucks, every time I want a pound of beans and can't stomach the $12! Hoo-ray!
  • gotta love free money!
