Want cheap Starbucks?
Well, LifeHacker and LH reader therewillbesnacks have brought you quite an extensive list of ‘Starbucks Hacks’ that can get you either free or cheap coffee that will probably work at places other than just Starbucks.
I find it amusing that being the kind of guy that hates to pay full price for anything that I am, I already doing most of these.
Now, I know as a rule frugal people don’t buy Starbucks drinks. But say you’re in a hurry and you need a caffeine fix, or you’re a tea junkie like me and couldn’t wait for your kettle to boil some water before your class/work/whatever. Or maybe your with some friends who all want to go to Starbucks (Because, say what you will about Starbucks, but if you want a place to hang out with your friends other than your house, Starbucks is much cheaper than a restaurant or bar), how can you save money?
I’ve worked at Starbucks a long time now, and there’s a few things you can do to hack the system.
Brewed coffee is cheap enough. Ask for a pour over of their bold coffee for a fresher cup. It takes a few minuets, but it’s fresher and costs the same amount. Also, if you and several of your friends all want coffee, ask for a French Press. It’s around 4 dollars and is approximately 45 oz of fresh, hot, French pressed coffee. And you can pick whichever blend you’d like.
