#13 of 1001 Awesome Things: Free Starbucks Drink

August 31, 2017
Starbucks iced coffee brings me joy. There are plenty of coffee shops in the city, unfortunately, no one brews like Starbucks. Well, I have 3 favorite iced coffee in the city but they’re served in restaurants and not in coffee shops where I can bring a laptop and do work or personal stuff.
 
As an advocate of local entrepreneurs,  Starbucks is an exemption to the rule. But no matter how I love this corporation, I still have a way to slap it in the face because of the free drinks I get. Well, I am just poor and I cannot afford myself an expensive cold brew so I need to do this awesome but sometimes shameless hack
 
Starbucks usually have these cards where you can load and reload. You can load them for a minimum of 300 pesos ($6), which is good for 2 drinks. Every drink will give you free stars, and once you get a certain number of stars, you can get a free drink. So to collect the stars, you need to buy a lot of drinks for that free drink. 
 
If you register these cards, you can also get a free drink. So here’s my hack: Buy a new card, register it online, get a free drink. Then repeat. Do not combine the cards. Do not reload your old cards. The effort is to create a new email address and thanks to Google and Yahoo for the unlimited emails I can create. 
 
Sometimes, I just collect, register them all at once and treat my friends a cup of coffee.
