Starbucks Canada: $3 Grande For Any Espresso Drink Hot or Iced (Facebook)

Posted by on February 16, 2015 at 9:43 AM

Starbucks Canada: $3 Grande For Any Espresso Drink Hot or Iced (Facebook)

Starbucks Canada is offering a delicious deal over on Facebook. Right now, you can claim a coupon to receive any espresso drink in the grande size for only $3. This deal applies to both hot and cold beverages.

Use your facebook account and claim the coupon that makes any grande espresso drink for only $3. No matter your coffee preference, you will save a minimum of 25% off your espresso drink.

I have a love affair with coffee. Starbucks is always a treat for me. While I find their coffee delicious, I also find it a bit pricey for an everyday splurge. I do love the taste of their vanilla latte. I have noticed the taste tends to have a much crisper coffee flavour than when I order a latte elsewhere. The only other coffee shop I have had this experience in was a small little shop while visiting Seattle. As Seattle is the home of Starbucks, the coffee shops out there must know some secret to make it extra delicious.

A grande espresso drink at Starbucks usually runs me about $4 plus tax for something basic like a latte. If I choose something fancier, it can go up to $5 or even $6 before tax is added. This coupon is going to save you a minimum of 25% off on your drink.

Claim the coupon code now via the Starbuck’s Facebook page and instantly a coupon will be sent to your e-mail. Then show the coupon to the barista to claim your beverage. Even better, you do not have to waste your printer ink. Simply show the barista on your phone to grab the deal. If the barista is having any trouble, the coupon says the barista can use the ring code 2441 for the register. You may be able to use this offer multiple times at different Starbucks. The baristas are pretty smart if you try to use the coupon repeatedly at the same location multiple times.

I had a little trouble at first finding my coupon. I discovered my Facebook posts are being filtered into another folder within my e-mail. The coupon should come instantly. If you are having trouble, try searching your e-mail for Starbucks Canada. If that does not work, try checking your spam folder in case the message was moved. If you still cannot find the message, you can try changing the e-mail on file with Facebook and re-sending the offer.

I do not know how long this offer will be available to grab. You have a couple of weeks to use the coupon itself. Over 20,000 people have grabbed this coupon already. If I were you, I would send this coupon to my e-mail quickly to make sure I do not miss the deal. I am not sure how many coupons Starbucks will give away before they are gone.

Starbucks Canada End Of Year Sale: Up To 40% Off Coffee, Mugs, Tumblers, Etc. (Boxing Day Sale)

Posted by on December 22, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Starbucks Canada End Of Year Sale: Up To 40% Off Coffee, Mugs, Tumblers, Etc. (Boxing Day Sale)

The year is coming to an end, which means that the time has finally come for Starbucks’ annual End of the Year Sale, which is also their Boxing Day sale! You can save up to 40% off plenty of coffee, drinkware, tumblers, coffee machines and more. Plus, if it’s your first time shopping at their site, then you can use the Starbucks promo code: STNPWEKD to receive an additional 10% discount on your order (just keep in mind that it excludes Verismo merchandise).

Know a Starbucks addict or are you one yourself? Then get them the red holiday cup ornament to put on their Christmas tree as it’s guaranteed to make people smile. Originally priced at $5.45, it’s now on sale for $3.95 and even has the following 5/5 stars review:

Bold bright color, wonderful craftsmanship, perfect for the Starbucks lover, and an additional item to add to a Starbucks Gift Card!

As the reviewer points out, you could use this ornament as a filler item to reach the free shipping minimum threshold, which is of $75.

Although the code I mentioned won’t work on it, the Verismo 600 brewer is currently on sale for just $119 instead of its regular price of $149. Available in either silver or graphite, it features a very similar concept to the Keurig in that you need to use specifically designed Verismo pods to brew your coffee but the only difference is that with these, you can make either coffee, espresso, lattes or cappuccinos. Although it doesn’t have a milk frother, you can instead buy powdered milk to make your drinks directly using the Verismo. Out of 10 reviews, it has generated a 90% satisfaction rate. In fact, here’s what one happy reviewer had to say about it:

My wife is a basic coffee drinker- no fancy syrups necessary, so she is quite pleased with the gift(I don’t drink coffee-gasp!). The serving size is small, but it keeps her from drinking too much Verona. It was disappointing that no pods came with the purchase.

There are plenty more items on sale as well like Starbucks’ popular Christmas blend roast. You can get 1lb of ground beans for just $12.95 instead of $18.95. Plus, you will also receive a free Christmas blend tasting cup with purchase of the one pound. But hurry because the Christmas blend will undoubtedly disappear from their inventory as soon as the holidays are over.

Wikideal: Free 30 Days of Next Issue & Free $10 Starbucks Card

Posted by on December 15, 2014 at 2:44 PM

Wikideal: Free 30 Days of Next Issue & Free $10 Starbucks Card

Pick up this free voucher at Wikideal where you get a 30-day subscription of Next Issue and a $10 Starbucks Card for free. Next Issue themselves offers a free 30 day trial, so the real deal is in the free $10 Starbucks Card from Wikideal.

This deal is a little convoluted so allow me to explain. The promo through Wiki says that you receive:

  • 30-day Next Issue Subscription free
  • Free Portable Charger
  • Free $10 Starbucks Gift Card

However, the free portable charger is only if “you decide to continue your service after your trial period is over!” Though they say the charger is valued at $30, I am not sure it is worth keeping the subscription unless you really love reading magazines.

Now, to get your free $10 Starbucks Card, follow these instructions.

  1. Click on buy.
  2. Click on “Start Your Free 30-day Trial” and complete it.
  3. Once completed, you should receive a Next Issue subscription confirmation via e-mail.
  4. Forward that email to wikideal customer service at: support@wikideal.ca before January 12, 2014

This must be your first time ever signing up for a subscription with Next Issue. If you have had a trial subscription from them before, you may wish to use another email address that you know that you have never used before. The $10 Starbucks card will be given to those who sign up, following the instructions above, by the 5th of January.

You will receive the $10 Starbucks Gift Card from Wikideal approximately four to six weeks after this deal ends.

Now, I was doing research on this deal and found that some people were having trouble with Next Issue sending out subscription confirmations. If you follow all the above steps and still do not receive a Next Issue confirmation to forward on to Wikideal, I suggest you take the following steps.

Wait, sometimes confirmations can take 24 to 48 hours to shop up when a company is getting hit hard during a promotion. Check your spam/junk email folders. Contact Next Issue’s customer service and ask them to resend the subscription confirmation. Contact Wikideal if the above steps fail. I have seen on other comments that they will be checking with Next Issue so they may be able to fix the problem or make sure your name is on the appropriate list.

I hope our Moosers enjoy this deal and that it all runs smoothly for you.

Starbucks Canada: $25 off $70 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Starbucks Canada: $25 off $70 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

For Cyber Monday, Starbucks had a pretty awesome deal for and they just brought back the $25 off $70 offer for one day only! You will also receive free shipping on your order.

This offer is automatically applied to items in your cart, no coupon code is needed. For exclusions, you can consult this post in which I list them. It is the usual list, no gift cards, no Verismo systems, and nothing that constitutes a collaboration, etc. This is pretty much your standard list of exclusions for most every store: gift cards, collaborations, and very shiny expensive items.

What you can do is load up on coffee, tea, pods, or more. I picked out this Starbucks Christmas Coffee Variety Pack as it was excluded from one of the previous promotions I had blogged. I am a fan of variety packs when I have little experience with the products I am buying. In a pack, I get to try out a bunch of different items at the same time. With the coffee variety pack, you get to savour three different holiday coffees at the same time. This is a great way to figure out which one is your favourite. The pack includes Starbucks Christmas Blend, Starbucks Christmas Blend Espresso Roast, and Starbucks Christmas Blonde Roast for $59.95.

With such a large coffee pack to start with, I only need a little more than $10 worth added to my cart to receive the discount. I added this Paper Cup Ornament – Logo for $5.95 and this Red Holiday Cup Ornament for $5.45 to my cart. They are really cute little ornaments and I think the Starbucks addict in your life might get a kick out of them, This is what my cart looks like:

Starbucks Canada: $25 off $70 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Overall I save $25 + $7.95 = $32.95 with this deal from Starbucks Canada. I am delighted and only wish I drank coffee! I might have to send this to a friend as their Christmas gift.

These are some of the steepest discounts we have seen from Starbucks, and I am thrilled they are getting into the holiday spirit of ‘giving’ their customers great discounts. I might just have to place a large tea order with them today because that discount just should not be wasted.

Moosers! Did you place an order with Starbucks on Cyber Monday? If so, tell us what you bought and give fellow readers some recommendations! We always love to hear from you.

Free $10 Credit With Purchase Of $10 eGift Card @ Starbucks.com (HOT!!) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on December 8, 2014 at 1:57 PM

Free $10 Credit With Purchase Of $10 eGift Card @ Starbucks.com (HOT!!) (EXPIRED)

Just a couple of minutes ago, I wrote about a free shipping exclusive coupon code that we secured with the Canadian version of Starbucks’ site, but I just found another really awesome deal, but this time for the US side of this popular coffee chain. Right now, when you get an eGift card with a minimum of $10 on it and pay with a VISA, then Starbucks will add an additional $10 onto your card free of charge! That’s essentially a 100% profit if you only load $10 onto it!

This is one hot offer but keep in mind that although it’s set to expire on December 12th, it will also expire if 100,000 customers redeem it before then, so it’s definitely worth getting now. It’s set to expire.

You can only get this offer at Starbucks.com, which is the US version, but the great part about this offer is that the balance on the gift card may then be transferred onto a Canadian Starbucks gift card.

The only hitch is that this is an eGift, which means that you can’t send the gift card to yourself. However, you could send it to a partner, a friend or a loved one, who could then give it back to you. Or you could also use it as intended and gift it to that other person instead. How you can to go about it is completely up to you! Free $10 Credit With Purchase Of $10 eGift Card @ Starbucks.com (HOT!!) (EXPIRED)

Starbucks Canada Promo Code: Exclusive Free Shipping For No Minimum Monday (+ 30% Off Drinkware!) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on December 8, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Starbucks Canada Promo Code: Exclusive Free Shipping For No Minimum Monday (+ 30% Off Drinkware!) (EXPIRED)

Usually only free on orders over $65, right now at Starbucks, you can get absolutely free shipping on any order with no required minimum, but only if you use the Bargainmoose exclusive coupon code that we scored just for you in celebration of No Minimum Monday. Plus, you can also take advantage of the drinkware sale going on right now at Starbucks to save 30% off drinkware.

Click here to shop the drinkware sale @ Starbucks.ca

Click here to shop @ Starbucks.ca now

  • Coupon Code: FSMOOSE
  • Discount: Free Shipping
  • Expiry: 8th December 2014

You can use the above Bargainmoose exclusive Stabucks coupon code to save on any order, even if you only need 1 teeny bag of coffee beans. In fact, there is a promotion going on right now that if you get a 1lb bag of Christmas blend coffee, then you will also get a free Christmas tasting cup with your purchase. A 1lb bag of Starbucks Christmas blend coffee is $18.95. This is one of Starbucks’ most popular coffee blends and if you haven’t already tried it, it’s definitely worth ordering. It’s a dark roast full-bodied coffee with spicy and sweet notes.

With Christmas right around the corner, I would suggest pairing it with the Drinkware Sale to score both free shipping and a nice discount on fun mugs and tumblers.

The “Oh, what fun” mug featured on the image above usually retails for $7.45 but is now on sale for just $5.21. It’s a fun mug, indeed, that could either be given as a gift or you can also keep it all to yourself to make mornings that much more joyful. It’s a demi-sized ceramic coffee mug that can hold up to 89ml. It’s also both dishwasher and microwave safe.

There are also plenty of other mugs, tumblers and even cold cups to choose from. The “Oh, what fun” mug is among some of the cheapest mugs you can get with this sale but I also had a look around all the way to the other end of the price spectrum and one the priciest items on sale I found is the stainless steels siren’s poem tumbler. Originally priced at $26.95, it’s now down to just $18.86 and even features the following review:

I liked the look of this and found the the lid is easy to keep clean, and drinks stay hot longer than in previous tumblers I’ve owned.

Oh, what fun indeed!

Starbucks Canada: ANY Grande Only $3 with Facebook

Starbucks Canada: ANY Grande Only $3 with Facebook

Check out this yummy deal on Facebook to get ANY Grande size drink at Starbucks for just $3! Click through the link below and claim your offer through Facebook.

When you click ‘get offer,’ they will send an email to the email address registered to your Facebook account with details on how to get your $3 grande drink. Really, all you have to do is show the barrister the email you receive and they will ring it through. This offer is valid for any hot or iced grande drink. You will only pay $3 + tax.

Now, the email you receive does not have a unique code on it or anything, so hypothetically this email offer is limitless until its expiry date on the 19th of December 2014. I might not visit the same Starbucks with it every single day at the exact same time – the barristers are smart people you know – but you could use this for a few nice festive drinks over the next couple of weeks.

I am not sure how much most 16oz drinks retail for at Starbucks, but any of the fancy ones are certainly well above the $3 mark. I rarely go to Starbucks because I do not budget much for eating out each month and their drinks are highly addictive! I had a friend who used to work at Starbucks and she would tell me about some of the drinks that people would order each day, that gets to be a rather expensive habit when your daily drink is $6 and you order it five days a week!

While this is not the priciest drink, one of my favourite drinks is their Caramel Apple Cider. What is your favourite Starbucks drink?

While the voucher does not expire until the 19th, I have no idea how long this offer will be up on Facebook.

Starbucks Canada Promo Code: Exclusive Cyber Monday Extension with $25 off $70 (EXPIRED)

Think Cyber Monday is over? Nope! It isn’t over at Starbucks if you are a Bargainmoose reader. We’ve got an exclusive coupon code that will get you $25 off your $70+ order at Starbucks today only, as an extension of Cyber Monday.

Click here to shop @ Store.starbucks.ca now

  • Coupon Code:  MOOSE25
  • Discount: $25 off $70+
  • Expiry: 3rd December 2014

This is a pretty sweet coupon, considering you can spend $70, but you only have to pay $45. Unfortunately, you can’t use this coupon with the 25% off holiday coffees deal on right now, but you can take advantage and get some great coffee or tea related gifts.

I took a look at the gifts under $50 section, as there are so many ideas in there for that special or not-that-special someone. Coffee gifts are pretty much a universal gift that almost everyone would love. I don’t drink coffee, but I do drink tea, so a mug or tumbler would still be quite useful for me.

I love this owl mug as I have an aunt who has an owl obsession. She also loves her coffee and this looks like a large mug for her morning (and afternoon fix). $11.95

I have a friend who travels a far distance to work and loves her tea in the morning. Instead of getting take-out tea, she can prep her own in the morning and take it with her.  This double wall traveler with a green balloon is too cute and considering she is a teacher, it would look super cute on her desk. $21.95

While this gift is rather decadent, it would be very fitting for the coffee (or tea) lover who likes her bling. The gold Swarovski tumber in a wood box would get lots of ooohs and ahhs when opened. Regularly $120.95, if you added the coupon code, you’d only pay $95.95, which is great if you are looking for a gift around $100.

Shipping will be free once you’ve spend over $65. This means if you’ve added $70 worth of items to your cart and got the $25 off and your total goes below $65, you will have to pay for shipping. Considering shipping is $7.95, you’d be best to spend that little bit more to save yourself those fees.

As always, check the Starbucks page on the Bargainmoose forum for all the up-to-date coupons and sales.

Starbucks Canada: 25% off Holiday Coffees

Posted by on December 2, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Starbucks Canada: 25% off Holiday Coffees

Hello caffeine addicts! Direct your browsers over to Starbucks Canada for 25% off all Holiday coffees. Save on your favourite brews and stay well caffeinated this holiday season.

All holiday coffees are included in the offer excluding 96 count pods, which all appear to be out of stock anyway. Maybe that is so you will avoid temptation. Starbucks Canada: 25% off Holiday Coffees Unfortunately, the Starbucks Christmas Coffee Variety Pack is also excluded.

A good place to start is with the basics. This Starbucks Christmas Blend, Ground is for those who still brew their own coffee instead of hand that work over to a pod. This coffee blend mixes the coffee you love with an assortment of holiday spices to evoke that holiday spirit. Originally $18.95, you can purchase one pound for just $14.21 after coupon.

If you do trust your coffee to your brewer, then you will want to pick up the Starbucks Christmas Blend Brewed Coffee Verismo Pods instead. A pack of 12 retails for $12.95, but comes down to $9.71. You can also purchase the 24-pack and 32-packs if this is a type of coffee you really like.

Not to be confused with the Christmas Blend, there is also a Starbucks Holiday Blend featuring herbal and sweet maple notes. If this were a tea, then I would be all over it because I love maple! An eight-ounce package of whole beans retails for $9.95, and comes down to $7.46 after discount.

There are several other coffee options to choose from. Every flavour comes in a variety of forms: from k-cups to whole beans to ground. Some flavours even come in instant form for early mornings with little time to prepare a good cup of coffee.

My parents have always been heavy coffee drinkers, but the trend never caught on with me. I just never had the taste for coffee unless it was about 20 parts sugar and one part coffee – like a Coffee Crisp. Now that is good. However, I think that good coffee makes a great gift for those that drink it. Maybe I will pick up a pound of a special seasonal grind for my parents this holiday season.

Hey Moosers! Comment below to tell us what your favourite Starbucks Holiday coffee is.

Receive free shipping on orders of $65 or more.

Starbucks Canada: $25 off $70 & Free Shipping Cyber Monday *NOW* (EXPIRED)

I was just on Starbucks’ website and realized that they have started their Cyber Monday deal early! Receive $25 off orders of $70 or more plus free shipping for tonight and tomorrow.

This is an online offer only and it excludes a few products:

Offer excludes Starbucks Cards, Limited–Edition Sterling Silver Starbucks Card, Verismo System, Starbucks Reserve Coffee, Made Greener Coffee Refill Tumbler, For Love of Country by Howard Schultz and Rajiv Chandrasekaran.

It is unfortunate that you cannot use this discount on a new Verismo system, but you can use this on a ton of awesome coffee, tea, and accessories. I just adore their holiday tumblers designed by different artists. They are colourful and there are so many different designs that there is sure to be one that appeals to you.

This Double Wall Traveler – Hot Air Balloon, 12 fl oz for $21.95 is my favourite. I find the hot air balloon whimsical and full of childlike wonder. It is one of my favourite symbols and I would love to have this mug.  I do not drink coffee so this would become my hot chocolate tumbler – such a noble drink!

I also totally want this Teavana® Perfectea Maker, 2-cup (16 fl oz) - I did not even know I could buy Teavana products at Starbucks! I watched them use this tea maker in store just a couple weeks ago. It looked like the simplest way to make an individual cup of tea and I have wanted one ever since. The Teavana Maker costs $22.95.

I was using a ball for our loose-leaf tea, but I recently picked up a smaller version of this Teavana® Stainless Steel Infuser. May I say, the difference is like night and day. There are no longer tiny little leaves all over my tea. This tea infuser is worth every cent of the $11.95 it costs, but you can get it for cheaper when it is part of your cart.

If you do not like your tea loose, then purchase this box of Tazo® Decaf Chai Filterbag Tea for just $5.75. This is a very good tea! I used to drink it all the time and it was one of my favourite chai teas.

Load up your cart with your favourite Starbucks teas, coffees, and accessories to take advantage of this special Cyber Monday offer.

Starbucks Canada: Verismo 580 Brewer Was $120 | Now $70 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on November 30, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Starbucks Canada: Verismo 580 Brewer Was $120 | Now $70 (EXPIRED)

Attention all coffee lovers! If you are looking for a new machine, look no further than the up to 40% off Black Friday/Cyber Monday on Verismo machines at Starbucks Store.

While not all of the machines are on sale at 40% off, one of note is the Verismo 580 brewer. You can get either the black or the silver for only $69, with a regular price of $119.

Similar to the other single-serve brewers, you can get your favourite Starbucks coffee in one cup with a touch of a button. The deal includes a box of pods as well.

The machine itself has a 1-litre water tank and room to store 10 pods.

Shopping around, I found that this is a fantastic deal as the other online Canadian stores sell it for varying prices, quite a bit above $69. Amazon is the cheapest, sold from a secondary seller for $79.98, with one left in stock and another $5.54 in shipping. Starbucks is including shipping, so you don’t have to worry about that pesky fee.

Other than that, Sears has it on sale for $99.99 and Costco has it for $109, but it does include some pods. Even still, the Starbucks Store deal is the best.

This machine has four stars out of five from nine reviews.

I purchased my first one about three years ago, and it is still going strong. Coffee flavour is great, consistent and since the option to purchase 96 portions at a time for less $ per serving, more cost effective. I purchased a second one for my office, but decided to give it to my son, who has coveted mine for several years. It is important to read the instructions, as these are not intuitive machines, but not difficult to operate if you read the instructions.

If you also wanted to stock up on pods, these are 20% off for Black Friday/Cyber Monday, with a 12-count box coming in at about $9.49, regularly $12.95. Those make great stocking stuffers! The flavours are endless.

If you already have your machine and just want to get the deal on the pods, spend $65 to get yourself free shipping.

Starbucks Canada: Free Shipping With 3+ DOT Mugs Or Tumblers

Posted by on November 19, 2014 at 9:30 PM

Starbucks Canada: Free Shipping With 3+ DOT Mugs Or Tumblers

Usually only free on orders over $65, you can now get free shipping at Starbucks if you buy three or more DOT drinkware products. Otherwise, a $4.95 flat shipping rate will apply.

Never heard about Starbucks’ Dot collection? It’s because it’s new! The Dot collection is actually a brand new exclusive line of mugs and tumblers designed by Starbucks artists. According to Stabucks’ promotional banner about it, it’s “here for the season and ready to gift”. It’s unclear as to whether it’s only here for the season and will be gone once the last snowflake melts but in any case, this promotion is a great way to score a couple of mugs and tumblers and get free shipping.

Earlier, I wrote about the rise in prices at Tim Hortons and mentioned that I would now be making better use of my own tumbler but it looks like Starbucks’ sale couldn’t have come at a better time. Personally, I only have one tumbler that I rinse out each time but I certainly wouldn’t mind having a couple of different ones switch between.

Upon first browsing the selection of Dot products, I spotted quite a few at $21.95 a pop but I found two for half that price. You can get the core green dot mug or the red holiday cup for $9.95 each. With Christmas right around the corner, the red one definitely stood out to me right away, especially with the hype the Starbucks’ to-go red cups generate, but it’s up to you to decide.

The great part about this promotion is that you could score some cups or tumblers to give as gifts in time for Christmas and then take advantage of the free shipping offer to grab some coffee, tea or anything else that strikes your fancy from Starbucks’ wide inventory of products.

According to certain online rumours, most of these DOT tumblers also have a matching gift card as loads of new ones have been added in-stores. However, I had a look at Starbucks’ online section for buying gift card and only counted 22 different designs to choose from. So, we’ll have to see in the upcoming week if this is just a rumour or if more cards will be added.

Just $5 For $10 Starbucks Gift Card @ Groupon Canada (HOT!!) (EXPIRED)

Calling all Starbucks and coffee lovers: Groupon is currently offering a $10 Starbucks egift card for just $5! But hurry because there’s no telling when this promotion might end.

Officially, this amazing promotion is set to end in four days, BUT there are only limited quantities available and given Starbucks’ popularity, these are sure to sell out like hot cakes. Also, it would seem that today, on Monday November 17th, it might be invite-only and may only work for those who received the e-mail in their inbox. If it doesn’t work for you today, then make sure to try again tomorrow, on Tuesday, when the deal officially goes live. Keep in mind that you will be receiving an electronic gift card that can then be redeemed at your local Starbucks store.

This deal is very interesting as it has come right on the heels of Starbucks’ other promotion, which was for a BOGO deal on holiday drinks. It ended yesterday but Groupon’s offer is nearly the same with the exception being that it’s better. Rather than having to get two drinks right away for the price of one, you can get what you what, whenever you want. Well, as long as you don’t exceed the $10 value! Just $5 For $10 Starbucks Gift Card @ Groupon Canada (HOT!!) (EXPIRED)

Whether you’re a Starbucks veteran or a rare visitor, I suggest using this gift card on one of their holiday drinks like a caramel brule latte, a chestnut praline latte, an eggnog latte, a gingerbread latte or a peppermint mocha. All of these are made with a shot or two of espresso (depending on the size you get) and are sure to get you in the holiday spirit within just a couple of seconds of sipping it!

The pumpkin spice latte should still be available at most stores as well and that is another extremely popular choice around this time. You could also use your gift card to get a gift for someone on your Christmas list as Starbucks sells plenty of drinkware and coffee beans in-stores.

Once your get your card, make sure to use it within 180 days or else it will expire. I’m sure that won’t be too hard of a task for you coffee-lovin’ Moosers, especially with the winter flurries we are about to face. It’s also only valid within Canadian Starbucks stores and there is a limit of one gift card per person.
