Giveaway: $10 in Starbucks scrip.

th-1As someone who doesn’t drink coffee, I’m always bemused by the reaction when I offer Starbucks gift cards as a giveaway. The last time I did this I got 226 entries. For a $10 card!

Then again, it’s summer and even though I don’t care for the bean I do have to admit that the cold drinks at Starbucks are pretty refreshing and tasty.

That is, unless they trash them up with coffee.

Win this week’s $10 giveaway, though, and you can order whatever you like.

To enter:

If you do any (or all!) of these things, please leave separate, additional comments to get credit for each entry.

The deadline is 7 p.m. PDT Tuesday, July 1. If I don’t hear back from the winners by 7 p.m. PDT Wednesday, July 2, I’ll pull a new winner.

  8. Carolina Cooper

    I do drink coffee, but (believe it or not) I have never been to Starbucks! We frugalists make our own coffee at home–and usually with free coffee from the Heyitsfree website! But, hey, I would love to try Starbucks for free, to see if it is any better than what I make at home, in my old fashion right on the stove coffee pot. I follow your blog as well as follow you on Facebook. AND, as you know I have had amazing luck in your giveaways in 2014—which makes me game to try again!

In the days leading up to the festival she and her crew have been working 12+ hour days to get it all ready and ADA compliant. If you’re in the DC area, it’s a free 2 week festival on the Mall.
