Starbucks Gold Giveaway

Since the last Starbucks giveaway was so popular, I decided to do another one in December to spread holiday cheer (via Gingersnap Lattes).

This time I’m giving away two Starbucks Gold cards, a special card that gives you 10% off most purchases, among other things. It’s also black and shiny gold and can make you feel fancy (almost like having a rare black American Express card).

Starbucks Gold

One of the features of the Starbucks Gold card is that you can share your 10% discount with a friend. To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this entry telling me who you would share your discount with by 11:59pm on Sunday, December 7th. A winner will be chosen randomly. Anyone in any country can enter, but I don’t know if the card will work everywhere in the world.

I would share my Starbucks Gold Card with my friend David. He and his wife have a toddler at home, and therefore he is almost always a little sleep-deficient.

He drives a metro handicapped bus all day around the city, and is patient and kind to all of his clients. Some are mentally handicapped, others are very large and wheel chair bound. It can take 10 minutes just to load a person safely into the van. If anyone ever deserved a 10% discount on coffee, it’s him.

Actually, I’d give him the card and let him share it with me!

We have been through a lot of fighting this year, almost to the point of separating. but i realized i love him still and he does too. So we will be trying the next year – to make the marriage work.

Am i sound too sad? But i am excited for new beginnings. Too bad, you are not offering a vodka gift certificate. maybe next year.

But, it would be pretty damn cool. Too bad it isn’t a FREE one for a friend (or stranger).

That said, I’d probably share the 10% with anyone I could possibly drag along with me to hang out for a few.

One is my personal trainer who so graciously demands that I continue to come into the gym even though I haven’t had a job since September and can’t afford to pay him.

The other deserving person is my friend that teaches my kick-butt boot camp and hip-hop classes. Our “treat” to each other after class is an iced vanilla latte.

I wish I could share this wonder-card with more than one person. I would definetly share this card with my dad, who claims to “hate” starbucks, even though when I bring it to him, he says its really good. Whenever I call to see what he wants, he gets all upset and says “I don’t like that fancy schmancy coffee crap that you young people like”. I feel that if he had a discount, maybe he would admit his love of fancy schmancy coffee crap.

I would also share with my friend Shelly who is beyond addicted to starbucks. She goes there at least once a day, usually twice. Since she and I are in denial that we are in a recession, and continue to spend money like we are millionaires we would benefit from discounted coffee.

I clearly recall going from getting myself a tall chai latte and a croissant to getting a grande black with a couple of Splendas, bringing my own breakfast. But, yeah, after all the caffeine she helped to dose me with, I figure I owe her at least ten percent off a few cuppas.

Hey PQ. Glad you are basking in the glory of a familiar illness. Wait. What? I understand what you’re saying though. Dude, I don’t know how you handle having a headache that has not gone away EVER for, I’m not sure how long, a year? You’re a trooper, that’s for sure. I started reading your blog a little over a year ago while I was going through chemo. And throughout it all, you still run marathons, and go to conventions and oatmeal weekends, and in your pictures you are smiling. I think they’d seriously have to put me in a mental institution if I was going through the same thing.

I know it probably gets aggravating hearing everybody’s suggestions and opinions on how to heal you, but I think everyone just loves you and wishes they could mention an option that will work, so they can feel like they helped you out. I know I wish I could. But, unfortunately, I gots nuthin’. I just hope when you wake up tomorrow that your headache is magically gone forever.

BTW, if I won the Starbucks card, I would share it with my cutie. We like to go and sink into the big comfy couches and talk about all kinds of stuff.

I’d share with my gorgeous weight-loss supporting boyfriend, who has faithfully put up with every diet-related temper tantrum I’ve had since June. (50 pounds gone since then…20 more to go!)

And I suppose I’d share indirectly with my cat, who enjoys licking the plastic lids of Starbucks cups after I’m done with them. She has a thing for soymilk.

Hi PQ!

I would share my discount card with my sister. She recently moved 3 hours away for a job and I miss her! It’s the first time we haven’t lived in the same town. The card would be a connector (plus we are both latte addicts).

I would share the card with my friend Alesha…we go to Starbucks together once a week to catch up with each other. We are both in recovery for eating disorders.

I would share it with my husband. I just got laid off, so he would appreciate the discount just as much as me!

I have a 3-month old baby. There will be NO sharing of the caffeine.

Okay, fine. I’d share it with my husband. But only because he could pick me up a java jolt on his way home from work.

Thank you for another opportunity!!

I would share my discount with my husband, who has suffered through bland food and inordinate amounts of roughage with very little complaining while I try to emulate PastaQueen’s weight loss success! As we enjoyed our frappes, we would absolutely think of you!

Thank you!

I would share my card with Clive Owen. We’d discuss how he’s a badass over coffee.

If I won, I would share my card with my sister. She is a Starbucks addict and drinks at least 1 cup a day.

I would share my Starbucks card with the people, and only the people, who keep me sane at work. These are the same kind people who share their hand lotion, OTC drugs and plastic cutlery.

I would share with my sister.

I would share my discount with my dear love Hunter, who I mercilessly got hooked on caffine a couple years ago.

I’m a horrible, horrible woman, I know.

What a fabulous idea. The gingersnap lattes are the best (even without the whip…).

I would share with my co-workers at the library. Yes, we have your book. ;-)

IF I WON THE CARDS I WOULD GIVE ONE TO MY FRIEND – THE WONDERFUL WEIGHT LOSS DOCTOR, BARBARA BERKELEY, MD. SHE LOVES STARBUCKS! I WOULD GET A SKINNY LATTE FOR MYSELF.

I’d share it with my mother, who just isn’t right until she gets her coffee in the morning. Starbucks is usually out of her budget, so this would be a treat for her. Thanks!

I’d share mine with my husband, we are budgeting our Starbucks visits so it would be nice to have a discount = more coffee! :)

I’d give it to my friend, Gina. She could really use a break right now.

Thank you so much for this great giveaway. Very sweet of you.

I’d share this card with one of my best friends, as it is our habit to go to Starbucks after we work out at the gym together. Don’t worry, we order Skinny drinks (fat free, sugar free) so we don’t undo all the good we just did in the gym.

Thanks!

If I win I would share this awesomeness with my husband. I couldn’t afford to buy him a birthday present this year. We both were laid off and he’s been struggling to find a job since February.

Crossing fingers! Thanks!

Melissa @ Anxious for Nothing • December 7, 2008 at 10:33 pm

Wow, if I win I would give the card to my mom, who is a true Starbucks addict. And then she could buy me coffee (using the 10% discount, of course). :-)

if I won, I would share the discount with everyone I know. Heck, I’d even make friends in line by sharing with random strangers (ie: cute guys =D).

I usually treat myself twice a month, on payday. This card would come in really handy. :) I would share mine with my Mom and StepDad; I got them hooked on White Mocha Frappuccinos. They always get a Venti and share it.
