Giveaway: Another $10 Starbucks card.

th-1Every time I give away a Starbucks card the response is enormous. Not being a coffee drinker, I don’t see the attraction. Then again, as a frugalist I guess that if someone wanted to give me $10 worth of hot chocolate or tea I might get riled up as well.

Now that the weather is cooling – or downright cold – in most of the country I figured it’s time to buy someone a drink. Will that someone be you?


Easy enough to enter my giveaways, so go for it. Or go for it more than one way, to increase your odds:

To enter the Starbucks card giveaway, do one or more of the following:

Be sure to leave a separate comment for each entry (e.g., “Subscribed to your writing newsletter” or “Follow you on Twitter”).

The deadline to enter is 7 p.m. PDT Thursday, Nov. 3. If I don’t hear back from the winner by 7 p.m. PDT Friday, Nov. 4, I’ll have the random number generator pull another name.

    I’ve followed you since msn. My all time favorite is the pick up a penny article that you wrote for found change. I still have a jar for my found change separate from other change.

      So do I! This year I’m waiting until January to round it up and donate it to the food bank, on the theory that donations slow way down after the holidays.

      Thanks for being such a long-time reader. I appreciate it.

  15. I’ve been subscribing to you ever since you moved. Previously just following you via articles in Reader’s Digest.

    FYI, Starbucks does have (hot or iced) tea and hot chocolate. So, use the $10 gift card on yourself. I too don’t particularly care for coffee but I get an iced tea nearly everyday from Starbucks. Depending upon the location, you for coffee or tea you can get free (if you’re a Gold member or 50 cents + tax if not) refills (not on hot chocolate). In my location, you have to go to the same store, in Seattle, any Starbucks location (I tried to pay but use the same cup theoretically saving me 10 cents and not making more trash), they just refilled me. Bought my iced tea at Starbucks #1 store and refilled all over the place.

  30. I would love to have this. I have never been to a Starbucks. I don’t drink coffee. One just moved here, so I might get hot chocolate.
