So I often get starbucks gift cards. It's an easy gift for me and I love them.
But I also, weirdly, collect the cute cards.
If someone buys me a card from like walgreens or the grocery store, it's a generic design.
Like how do I ask people to buy me a cute gift card instead of just a generic one?

I don't want to come off like I expect a sbux gc or don't appreciate the plain ones...

This is the dumb thing my brain is doing right now.
Worrying about gift cards.

Same.
Gingerbread house is good too.

ALSO!
i bought myself an egift card because it was a great design and when i added it, it showed up as a generic design!
I was bummed.
I almost contacted costumer service but then realized that was too silly even for me

Lol that is so cute.
The mermaid one made my jaw drop. I would never have imagined a mermaid for Starbucks. It's quite cool.

Nah man, if it makes you happy, you have every right to call up and want a different one. Maybe just say it was meant for someone else

But how do i politely tell my friends, hey can you pick up a card with a unique design at an actual starbucks instead of just grabbing one from the checkout, because i'm picky and disappointed in all the boring cards every holiday? K thanks

Never? It's their original logo.

Maybe when holidays get close, a fb post or something low-key like that, that starts with you saying how much you LOVE getting Sbucks cards, and love collecting the unique designs they have in the actual shops? It's just a hint, not bitchy, and no one should feel singled-out by it.

Yes, and maybe post pictures of the different designs, like you have here, saying how you love them and the perfect gift for you would be a quirky gift card.

So I never had one of the cards that has your name on it. They're supposed to send you one when you reach gold status but i didn't have my address associated with my account then so i never got one.
At this thread, I decided to message sbux and ask if I could still get one and they sent it to me!
My name is crossed off though, I'm pretty sure 2/3rds of you know it anyway



It's so pretty!

You got your gold card!

I pretty much only use the app now, but my gold card doesnt look like that, yours looks more ... regal? Mine was sparkly gold.
9 days ago - Friday 2/8/19 - 1:46:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
I primarily use the app, too
But I keep my main card in my wallet in case my phone dies, which had totally happened more than once. And there's no way to add cash payments to your star count.
I also use all my empty cards as bookmarks. :)

I'm not quite as bad as having the starbucks visa
Though you get tons of stars when you get it...
I have considered it

That is a good point! I have been in line before praying my phone doesn’t die before I can scan it lol

I go about once or twice a week
It's an easy place to meet with friends, there's at least one within a mile of anyone
It's a fun treat for me and my kid to grab a coffee and hot cocoa.
Egg white bites are delicious.
And there's one in every grocery store and target , so i grab one there pretty often, too

My husband and I usually hit up some kind of coffee shop on the weekends, but it’s not always Starbucks. there’s no draw back to using the app/card because whenever you do go (even if it’s not often) you get stars and then free drinks/food.

I live in a suburb these days and there are no independent coffe shops nearby.

And the app is good for my budget.
As someone who will randomly get a coffee every time they drive by a coffee shop, I only buy one if I have money on my card. At the beginning of the month, I add my entire coffee shop coffee allowance for the month.
I have cheated for special occasions but it generally keeps my coffee spending in check

Also I’m the suburbs- but before we moved we were REALLY in suburbia.. they had just opened up a really cute, modern independent coffee shop near us. I miss that place, they had the best donuts.

Now we live in the suburbs, but more in the city centre and have another independent coffee shop across the street. I find it’s super hit and miss if the coffee is good though.

That’s what I like about Starbucks, im pretty much going to get what I like evey time, unless someone makes the drink wrong. And if they did they’ll remake it.

They'll even remake it at a different starbucks if you are driving.

There's a Starbucks right on my way to work so I go at least once, often twice a week.

I LOVE their egg white bites.

I'm sad though, because I liked their egg white reduced fat turkey bacon sandwich...the one I go to regularly probably won't have them again for another 6 months.
