New Sale Items Added   Prices From $3 @ Starbucks.ca!

Starbucks Canada has added several items to their sale section! With prices starting as low as $3.12, these deals are hard to resist. Some of the discounts can total up to 60% off, which is pretty hefty for the Starbucks Store. So whether you need a new tumbler or want to buy a sale blend, now is your opportunity.

The first item that caught my eye had to be this Lips Double Wall TravelerPerhaps because we are approaching Valentine’s DayThis 12 oz travel mug is super adorable, and a great way to tote around your favourite blend without it getting cold. This cup was $21.95 and is now $15.37. For at home, you may like the XOXO Mug. This 16 oz mug is on sale from $13.95 down to just $9.77. Read the rest of this entry »

Collect 5 Stickers & Get a Free Coffee @ Starbucks Canada!

I went through the Starbucks drive thru this morning and they handed me a nifty little card. Upon reading it, I realized that they have a fabulous new promotion on right now. Buy five cups of any size hot brewed coffee and enjoy a free Grande brewed coffee. For each coffee you purchase you will receive a gold sticker on your card, so don’t lose the card!

Usually you can get a free item from Starbucks Canada for every 10 stars that you earn, but this promotion will allow you to get a free coffee after you purchase six coffees. The great part about this offer is that the five coffees you purchase can be any size, but the freebie will be a grande. Read the rest of this entry »

Free True North Blend Coffee Samples @ Starbucks!!

I am slightly obsessed with Starbucks, are you? Right now you can visit any Starbucks Canada location and try a free sample of the Starbucks True North Blend coffee! I have been stuck on ordering a “Tall Blonde” for the last year or so, so this might be my chance to switch it up. Have you tried this coffee yet?

I was browsing through my Facebook news feed and saw that Starbucks Canada has a lovely little free sample offer from January 21st through January 23rd, and I just had to share the info. Read the rest of this entry »

Buy a $20 Starbucks Gift Card For $13 @ Groupon!

Posted by on December 28, 2015 at 6:00 PM

0Buy a $20 Starbucks Gift Card For $13 @ Groupon!**BUMP!!! This deal is on again and it sells out quick – but some of the details have changed!**

Quick post! Groupon has brought back their deal for Starbucks eGift cards. If you buy a $10 USD Starbucks gift card, you’ll receive a $15 USD one! You can’t load it right to your Starbucks card though since it is a US deal, you must print out the eGift Card and use that to either buy a Starbucks Gift Card or use it to purchase your desired items from Starbucks.

I have called two different Starbucks Canada locations to confirm that you can in fact use this voucher at Canadian locations. While this is from the US Groupon website, you can print the emailed voucher and bring it into your local Starbucks to use as is or convert it into a gift card. You cannot upload the amount to your Starbucks card via email. The Groupon site says that there is a limited quantity available. If you want one of these Starbucks eGift cards, don’t wait until later in case they sell out. There have been over a hundred thousand Starbucks gift cards bought already at the time of writing this post. Read the rest of this entry »

It is hard to find last minute Christmas gifts, but this one is truly exceptional. Everyone likes a Starbucks Canada gift card because you can get yummy drinks and fancy pastries to go along with those yummy drinks. I haven’t been to a Starbucks in ages but – YUM – I could so go for their amazing caramel apple cider right now. It is SUCH a good drink. Read the rest of this entry »

Starbucks Canada: Merry Monday promos are back!

Hey Moosers! I hope your weekend was wonderful. While we sometimes dread rolling into Monday, now we have a reason to look forward to Mondays. Starbucks Canada has brought back their Merry Mondays promotion and if you love Starbucks as much as I do then you will want to head into your favourite location every Monday to enjoy the available discounts and promotions. Each Monday has a different offer in store, and you must be a Starbucks Rewards Member to enjoy them.

So the Merry Monday promotion started at Starbucks last week. Every Monday through December 7th a different promotion will be valid from 2pm until closing time. It may be BOGO offers or free items with your purchase, but they are all definitely worth a visit to Starbucks each Monday. I am already a regular at Starbucks so it is not like I will have to go out of my way to enjoy the discounts. Read the rest of this entry »

Starbucks Cyber Monday Canada: Additional $25 Off $60 & Free Shipping!

Posted by on November 30, 2015 at 8:00 AM

Starbucks Cyber Monday Canada: Additional $25 Off $60 & Free Shipping!

love Starbucks! Seriously – I am so excited about this discount. For Cyber Monday Canada 2015 you can shop at the online Starbucks store and get $25 off when you spend $60, plus totally free shipping. What?! Yeah, I know. Time to cross off the coffee lovers on your Christmas list, and spoil yourself too. This discount even applies to their sale items, which is fab.

The online Starbucks store has so much more than coffee. They have coffee, tea, equipment, ornaments, syrups, sauces and more. I am just impressed that this offer even works on sale items. While their sale section is pretty sparse, a few of the items really caught my attention. I am seriously getting some of my Christmas shopping done right now, and I am even going to spoil myself a little.

Starbucks Canada Black Friday: Verismo 600 Brewer was $149 now $79 & Free Box of Verismo Pods & Free Shipping!

Starbucks Canada Black Friday: Verismo 600 Brewer was $149 now $79 & Free Box of Verismo Pods & Free Shipping!

love Starbucks. It would be even nicer to wake up and brew myself a beautiful cup of Starbucks coffee though. If you feel the same, then you may want to snag this Verismo 600 Brewer in Silver during the Starbucks Black Friday event. While supplies last, you can pay $79 instead of $149 to be able to create Starbucks beverages at the touch of a button. Plus you will also get a free box of Verismo Pods. All of this will be shipped to you for completely free!

The Black Friday section on Starbucks.ca has a few other Black Friday discounts as well. While the discounts are not smoking hot over there, it is always good to save a few bucks on items you would normally buy for full price.  But let’s get back to this Verismo 600 Brewer! With this Starbucks brewer you will be able to replicate their lattes, espresso, brewed coffee and such right in the comfort of your very own home. I would consider this a superb deal. You can get the Verismo 600 Brewer in silver for just $79 at Starbucks.ca, but Bed Bath & Beyond has the same brewer available in stores only for double the price. Read the rest of this entry »

Starbucks Canada: BOGO Holiday Beverages!!

Starbucks Canada: BOGO Holiday Beverages!!

 *** Bump – starts TODAY ***

So, last week I told you guys about the Second Cup Holiday Beverage promotion, but I would venture to guess that you prefer Starbucks. Am I right? Well I have some excellent news if that is the case. From November 12th through November 15th you can enjoy an excellent discount on your favourite Holiday Beverage from Starbucks Canada. You can buy one, get one free on all Holiday Beverages between 2 pm and 5 pm during the span of this promotion – and I am excited!

So it looks like the competitors like Starbucks, Second Cup etc all release new Holiday Beverages every year. While that is exciting, I seem to grow attached to my drink preferences and I get sad when my favourites don’t return. This year the Starbucks Holiday Beverages include Chestnut Praline Latte, Peppermint Mocha, and Caramel Brule Latte. The great thing is you  can BOGO free between November 12th and 15th if you go between 2pm and 5pm. Delicious! Read the rest of this entry »

Starbucks Canada: Two Insulated Tumblers Were $28 | Now $16 & Free Shipping

I’m totally going to confuse you right now Starbucks Canada: Two Insulated Tumblers Were $28 | Now $16 & Free Shipping First of all, Starbucks has a fantastic promotion going on where if you buy two drinkware items, you’ll get free shipping on your purchase. Normally, you’d have to spend a whopping $75 to get free shipping or pay $7.95 at Starbucks. Second, you can buy already reduced drinkware items like the insulated tumblers I am featuring that are regularly $13.95 and on sale for $8.95. Third, you can use the coupon code STNPWEKD to get another 10% off your order (if this is your first order at Starbucks). I added two insulated tumblers to my cart and my total came to $16.11 with free shipping!

6 Ways to Save Money at Starbucks

Posted by on May 16, 2015 at 8:00 PM

6 Ways to Save Money at Starbucks

For many, a trip to Starbucks in the morning is an essential aspect to the start the work day off right.  For others, it is a treat once a week, and for others, it is a way to connect with friends and acquaintances during coffee breaks or on the weekends.  Basically, Starbucks is a large part of our lives.

Starbucks coffee is great, however, the prices obviously aren’t if you drink a latte daily.  A cup of coffee is $2 a day and a latte or a specialty coffee can be at least $3.50 to $4 a day.  $500 to $1000 a year on coffee isn’t my cup of tea (no pun intended) personally, but I do understand the importance of Starbucks coffee to start the day.

If you love Starbucks but you don’t love the prices at Starbucks (and your wallet doesn’t like the prices at Starbucks), here are six ways to save money on your next hit of coffee or tea when you head to Starbucks.

Sign up for a Starbucks Rewards/ Gift Card

According to Popsugar, there are numerous benefits to signing up and registering for a Starbucks rewards card.  Depending on how often you use the card, you get benefits including special email offers, a free drink or reward after 12 purchases, and if you use it 30 times in 12 months (which is very easy to do, I’m sure) you can get a personalized gold card.  If you don’t like to have so many cards in your wallet, you can have it attached to your phone (they can scan your the “rewards card” on your phone and you’re good to go).

Go to Starbucks on Your Birthday

Another added perk for signing up for a Starbucks Rewards card (it’s free to register) is that you can get a free drink on your birthday.  You just have to redeem the free gift within 30 days of your birthday.

Order a Hacked Specialty Drink

For the iced latte lovers out there, one way to save big on your favourite drink is to ask for a double espresso on ice (in Starbucks lingo it is called a “doppio”), and then head to the station to add the milk.  This on average saves over $1.50 if you’re getting the grand doppio with milk (aka grand iced latte).  If you want to save money on a hot Starbucks latte, ask for a cafe misto instead of a hot latte and you’ll save almost a dollar with each drink.  A misto is just regular coffee with steamed milk and a hot latte is two espresso shots with milk.  Tastes similar but the cost is different.  For some more fantastic Starbucks specialty drinks hacks including a chai tea latte hack and an iced tea hack, head to the post on 5 Ways to Save Money at Starbucks from Yahoo Finance.

Bring Your Own Re-usable Cup

If you bring your own re-usable cup when you visit Starbucks, you get $0.10 off your Starbucks order.  Not only will you be saving money you’ll also be sparing the environment from added garbage accumulating in the landfill.  Sure, $0.10 isn’t a lot but it does add up over time.  Over a year it is just $24 in savings but priceless savings for the environment.

Get a Short Instead of a Tall

Unbeknownst to many, there is a drink size/ cup that is even smaller than the tall.  The short costs less than the tall Starbucks drinks (obviously).  The great caveat is that you still get the same amount of caffeine as you would if you order the tall if you order an espresso drink (one shot of espresso).  Check out the Foodnetwork.ca post on how to save money at Starbucks for more detail.

Look for Coupons in the Mail

Periodically (I think once to twice a year) I get some cute little coupons in the mail (they are small card sized and don’t look like your typical coupon) for discounts on Starbucks drinks.  You can get a hot or iced beverage for $3 or a breakfast sandwich and a grande sized hot or iced brewed coffee for $4.  A pretty decent deal if you ask me!

Don’t forget to watch Bargainmoose for all the latest deals at Starbucks!

Bargainmoosers, have you tried these?  Do you have any other tried-and-tested ways to save money at Starbucks?

Starbucks Canada: Half Off Frappuccinos During Happy Hour (May 1 To May 10)

Posted by on April 30, 2015 at 7:46 AM

Starbucks Canada: Half Off Frappuccinos During Happy Hour (May 1 To May 10)

Head over to your local Starbucks location to participate in Frappuccino happy hour. You will receive half off your Frappuccino and have a delicious coffee treat to show for it.

Mmmm, spring is here in a delicious way. I have packed away my sweaters, and now Starbucks is encouraging me to switch over to creamy iced coffee treats from my regular cup. Head over to your local Starbucks chain between May 1st and May 10th to participate in Starbucks Frappuccino happy hour. Between the hours of 3pm to 5pm, you will receive half off your delicious frozen drink.

Perhaps you are running through the carpool lane until 5pm? No problem if you are a member of the Starbucks Rewards program. As an added bonus, all Starbucks Rewards members will be able to receive half off a Frappuccino for an extended hour from 3pm to 6pm. If that is not enough reason to join Starbucks Rewards, check out my previous post to learn a little more about the Starbucks Rewards program. It will be well worth your while to click on that post again. There is a dancing bird video included on that post.

It has been a while since I treated myself to a Starbucks Frappuccino. Winter was long and usually a Skinny Vanilla Latte or Skinny Carmel Machiatto found its way into my cup. The Frappuccinos are decadent, but you can order a lite version of several of them that will scale back the treat a little. The smallest light caramel Frappuccino and smallest light coffee Frapuccino are both listed on the under 200 calories menuIf you are having trouble deciding on your flavor, here is a sample of what you have to look forward to.

  • S’mores Frappuccino
  • Caffè Vanilla Frappuccino
  • Mocha Frappuccino
  • Java Chip Frappuccino
  • Strawberries & Cream Frappuccino (caffeine free!)
  • Vanilla Bean Crème Frappuccino- (caffeine free!)

There are many more available, so check your local location. If you are feeling extra decadent, try that new S’mores Frappuccino. It was reported recently in Time Magazine that this Frappuccino can be upgraded with a cookie straw that is lined with chocolate ganache. I think I just had a sugar crash right there in the middle of the sentence. According to The Telegraph, this decadent treat is only available in North America for Canadian and American locations. The ultimate question is can you drink the whole Frappuccino before you eat your cookie straw?
