I know, dear Reader, that you have been sitting around for months now, wondering when I was ever going to do an update on the infamous Starbucks reward card. What, you say you don’t even remember the card? I am aghast. It should have been on the top of your list. ok, go over here and read all about it, and then come back so I can bring you up to date.
The gold card arrived in the mail. We had attained this glorified status with Starbucks. In other words, we had made enough transactions at their ubiquitous stores. It took only 30 of these to get to this level, so really, no big deal. Terry’s name is on the card so he gets to carry it. I don’t really want it because it is not the type I can attach to my keyring. He likes the fact that it doesn’t attach to a keyring. We’re different that way.
An aside: the same day the card arrived, Terry got new glasses.
Today, while killing time while new tires were being put on the Subaru, we hung out at Barnes & Noble where they have a Starbucks coffee bar. After ordering his drink, Terry learned that they do not honor the Starbucks reward card, and the coffee costs more there than at a corner Starbucks. I thought it was all pretty funny.
So, here’s Terry with his B&N coffee, gold card, and his new glasses:
And, yes, I know you can’t see anything exciting about the glasses. That’s the way he likes it.
