Friday Freebie: Starbucks Coffee

If you have been reading my blog at all, you will know that I have an extremely bad coffee addiction. I can’t live without my coffee and my favorite coffee in the world is Starbucks. There is nothing better than their Peppermint Mochas and I swear that I could drink one of these every single day. It is unfortunate that these are over three dollars (for a small!) so I have to find a way to feed the addiction without breaking the bank.

I have been a part of MyPoints forever and last year they started offering Starbucks gift cards in exchange for the points that you earn. MyPoints is basically a website where you can earn points for shopping, taking surveys, and opening emails from their sponsors. These points can then be used towards a gift card of your choice. They offer gift cards to just about anywhere, and these can be used on yourself or can be given as a gift to a family member.

I don’t use the points as an excuse to shop, but I do shop where I can earn points. I do a lot of my holiday shopping through this site and find it neat to be able to shop while working towards a goal of free coffee. I try to aim for gifts that reward you with the most points.

Be sure to sign up to receive their emails because each one you open is worth five points! These points add up quickly and all you have to do is open your email box to receive the points.

I hope you can enjoy a coffee on MyPoints too- gotta love your Freebie Friday!

Tomorrow our poll will be closing- be sure to cast your vote!
