Starbucks Treat Receipt: Deals & Caffeine all in one

3 Aug

I’ve posted before about my love for Starbucks Iced Coffee (mmmm!) and yesterday I shared with you all how much I love saving money.  So, I felt absolutely compelled to share that for the month of August Starbucks is issuing “Treat Receipts.”

Starbucks Treat Receipt August 2012 & Gold Card

As my receipt reads, “Make any purchase before 2 p.m. then show your receipt after 2 p.m. same day to get any cold Grande drink for $2 + tax.”  Did you say any cold Grande drink, Starbucks? Yes, yes you did! That means I can even get my beloved skinny vanilla latte that usually costs me way more than $2 if I splurge on a special occasion. This is great news. (You’ll also see my gold rewards card in the photo above. Proof that Starbucks is my one expense I can’t seem to bring down. Especially in the summer– iced coffee is such a weakness for me. In the winter my Starbucks spending goes down significantly since I make coffee in the Keurig at work.)

Except, you might remember a few weeks ago for That’s it! Thursday’s, I gave up having more than one caffeinated beverage a day. So– I’ve gotta remember to tack on “decaf”  iced skinny vanilla latte to that order this afternoon. I’ve been doing great so far with this and I don’t want to end my streak now! That’s right, Starbucks, you won’t get me with your tricky discounts and schemes!

What’s your favorite Starbucks (or other coffee joint) beverage?

    Iced coffee with a shot of sugar free syrup. So far my favorite flavors are hazelnut and raspberry. Starbucks doesn’t offer sugar-free raspberry, but I’ve found it elsewhere. I also love a straight-up hot coffee with cream, no sugar. I’m crazy enough that I’ll drink one in the summer.

    Have you tried the new iced coffees for the Keurig? I’m totally loving Green Mountain’s French Vanilla Iced Coffee. It might be a good substitute at a much smaller price!

      ohh I love the suggestion! Maybe I can convince my work to buy that type as well. Even if I can’t, I’m sure buying those pods would be cheaper than Starbucks. 🙂
