Usually a triple tall americano with some kind of syrup…depends on my mood.  If I want a treat I will get a triple tall skinny caramel macchiato.  I love coffee!

@trixiesrockets:  Venti White Chocolate Mocha, triple shot of espresso. Sometimes with soy, sometimes with regular milk.

and

a Venti Java Chip Frappicino with an extra shot of espresso, and on occassion will add a few pumps of mint to it so it’s like an Andes Mint drink.

 

I’m a Gold Card Carrying Starbucks member, and have been given over $750 worth of Starbucks gift cards. I’ve not paid for my own drink in over a year.

I only go when I get gift cards, because I don’t like coffee! I get either a hot chocolate or a strawberry shake thing – I forget the official name. Something “Cream” or “Creme” I think.

@trixiesrockets:  Oh it totally is absolutely yummy! To get a gold card you register one of your Starbucks gift cards (easy enough to do with the app for a smart phone), and then you earn stars for each purchase. Once you earn 30 stars in one year you become a Gold Card member, and they send you a personalized Gold Card with your name on it and date you became a member. To maintain a gold status you have to earn 30 stars within a full year.

Once you’re a gold member you get a free treat or drink after every 12 stars earned, and free refills of teas and coffees while still in the store. Plus, once you become a member (you have basic, green, and gold) you get a free drink on your birthday.

Becoming a member is FREE and you’ll get a lot of other rewards, like free music downloads and app downloads (its how I got angry birds full and fruit ninja full). So really, to me, if you drink Starbucks ever, it is worth it to get the membership.

 

When I get my free drink I usually spice it up and go nuts with what I order. My most expensive free drink was $15.00! (I provided my own ‘mug’)

When I do go there, usually a Java Chip Frapp. Pumpkin spice/eggnog during the holidays.

I prefer a different local chain.

Oh and I am drinking Starbucks right now. I drink probably close to 100 drinks a year. It started with my editor giving me a gift card not too long ago, and then a lot of my clients I do work for picked up on the trend of giving me gift cards, so I am given lots of cards. Right now my account balance is $213.92 spread out on a variety of different cards.

This is horrible for my caloric intake, but oh well. lol
