I had my Starbucks card registered a few months ago. This weekend, I got a postcard in the mail from Starbucks:
Because you’re a loyal registered Starbucks card member, we’re giving you a little gift: $5 loaded onto your Starbucks Card by April 19, 2007.
Use the $5 to treat yourself to that indulgent beverage you’ve always wanted to try or anything else you enjoy at Starbucks.
The choice is yours. Thank you and enjoy.
Your Friends at Starbucks.
Moral: Load up all the gift cards you get at the Starbucks website (up to three); even if they’ve got zero balance, you might get this cool gift!
