As part of a back to school special at least in the Pasadena, CA area Starbucks has brought back the sweet treat promotion. Basically if you buy any drink before 2:00 p.m. you can come back with your receipt and get any grande drink for $2! It’s a great deal especially if in the morning you get a small cup of coffee ($1.65) and then get any drink, my favorite, a Mocha Lite Frappucino with an extra shot of Espressso ($4.25 + 0.75) for $2! So for $3.65 I get $5.65 in beverage! Every little bit helps and it’s only 130 calories for a grande!
Also Starbucks is running another promotion called the 12 star dash. If you get 12 stars between now and and September 9th you’ll get $5 added to your starbucks card. So by double dipping with the sweet treat promotion you can get a significant discount on Starbucks, which is pretty rare!
