Starbucks Coffee Giveaway! – CLOSED

Starbucks Coffee Giveaway
As the title of this blog insinuates, I thrive on ways to save money.  So, when Starbucks contacted me about this giveaway and explained how I can save money by buying their newly sized store-packaged coffee rather than purchasing by the cup, I immediately jumped on board.  I love Starbucks coffee, but usually only stop in and treat myself if I have a gift card.  (Thanks to the in-laws!) However, Starbucks has convinced me that I can indulge in a cup of their coffee by brewing it at home – guilt free!

Starbucks Coffee
Brewing coffee at home is a tasty and affordable way to greatly reduce the cost of your daily morning routine. To help meet popular demand, Starbucks is expanding its packaged coffee portfolio where consumers buy groceries. For those who want to try a new blend but don’t want to commit to a larger size, the new 5-ounce package size is a great choice, and for those who have a favorite Starbucks coffee they enjoy regularly, the new 20-ounce size offers great value, penciling out to approximately only 25 cents per cup!

And more good news – to reward loyal Starbucks grocery shoppers, most coffee packages will include an offer for a free Tall (12-fulid ounce) brewed coffee at Starbucks locations when customers bring in their empty bag.

Here’s where the giveaway comes in.  Starbucks wants to give three of my readers an opportunity to try these new size packages.  This giveaway includes a Starbucks coffee mug, a 20-ounce bag of coffee and two 5-ounce bags.  Three winners will receive each of these items (as pictured above).

  43. I’m the only one in the house that takes a sandwich for lunch. To keep the bread from molding before it’s eaten, I stick it in the freezer. Every morning I take out 2 pieces of bread to thaw and then make my sandwich. This keeps me from having to throw away bread that has molded.

  44. I try to plan meals ahead whenever possible. It’s easier said than done, most weeks. Also, I take my lunch to work every day.

  58. My husband and I take a look at the flyers for the week. Write down what is on sale that we need and then search through our coupon box for corresponding coupons and then go on line to see if we can get online coupons attached to the store cards to use toward purchases as well.

  59. I make my own laundry detergent, fabric softener, and stain remover!

  60. We save money buy shopping with deals are 10 for $10!

  61. I try to stock up on items I use all the time when they are on sale. I always check the sales flyer and make a list before heading to the store.

  62. I cut coupons, read ads, and make a grocery list EVERY time I go to the store. It keeps me from wandering and grabbing unneeded items 🙂 I also try to use coupons or scout out deals at restaurants when we eat out.

  63. I faithfully watch store ads and shop at several stores to get the best deal. I also request price matching at Wal-mart when the same products are available.

  73. I am a coupon shopper and watch the ads every week. I buy whats on sale and combine the sales with coupons to get the best deals and sometimes free.

  74. I clip coupons, but also buy some items in bulk. Since I have been laid off for over a year, I’ve had the time to comparison shop and know what stores have the best the prices. Also, our grocery store will double coupons up to $1, so savings can really add up. I’m a really healthy eater, so I don’t buy many processed foods. It can be a little more expensive in the winter, but it’s great in the summer to buy from local growers.

  75. I would looove to have starbucks at home! I always keep re-usable bags on-hand so that I get my $0.05 – 0.25 credit per bag every time I shop. Every little bit helps!

Money saving tip – shop without the kids with you throwing everything in the cart!
