What’s better than finding out what Rene from Delta Points likes to eat when he travels? Free Starbucks! If you haven’t already entered, click on over to my interview with Rene and then answer this week’s cookie-related giveaway question in the comments of that post. If you’re randomly chosen at the end of the week, you’ll be rewarded with a $50 gift card to Starbucks for all the caffeine your body can handle.
Speaking of, did you guys see the crazy $54 Starbucks drink that somebody created last week? It was a sixty-shot Vanilla Bean Mocha Frappuccino with protein powder, a caramel drizzle, a mocha drizzle, and a hazelnut drizzle. The grand total? $54.75. Or at least it would have been — if the buyer was paying for it. Instead, he used Starbuck’s generous Gold card loyalty program to his advantage and turned his free drink (after buying twelve) into this behemoth. Well done, sir. Well done.
