Beat The Coffee Crunch: 80p Starbucks Friday (+Possible FREE Refill)
"So... what size do you think you can you handle for 80p?"
I love a good cup of Hazelnut Latte. But coffee is just way too overpriced in this country.
I support the concept of 'Fair Trade' and all, but at the average cost at £3 a visit, the price of coffee adds up fairly quickly.
So when we discovered that The Guardian is giving away free Starbucks coffee vouchers every Friday until October 24, we've been collecting 20ps like good little Eagle Scouts.
So for all you Starbucks addicts (including the ones in denial) needing to feed your caffeine frenzy, make sure you pick up a copy of the Guardian on Friday. The dates are October 10, 17 and 24.
(And if you don't wanna use the voucher, feel free to post 'em to me instead...)
Note: You get a free choice of ANY espresso based coffee, at ANY size.
And for you daredevils who want to take things to the next level... tomt82 on HUKD shared some delightful info on getting FREE Starbucks refills. As sourced from the Business121 mailing list:
'We are delighted to announce that Starbucks UK and Ireland is now offering one complimentary Tall Freshly Brewed Coffee refill to any customer who purchases any hot beverage, of any size, to enjoy in our stores.' confirmed a Starbucks spokesperson. The offer is supposed to be on permanently, and have been announced on the Telegraph website.
The refill option is supposedly only for brewed coffee at any Starbucks UK/Ireland. But hey, it may be worth asking anyway. Just don't get too greedy!
Do let us know how it goes. And give yourself a few hours after binging on the mocha before writing. Caffeine can do some crazy things. I know. I'm on it right now.
