2016 SEASON OF GIVING (DAY 1): $5 Starbucks Gift Card

IMG 0474

Starbucks did a lot of interesting things this year. The coffee chain started 2016 with changes to its rewards program, which ended up angering a lot of customers. And it’s ending the year with the announcement of CEO Howard Schultz stepping down from the position in April 2017.

In between those two events, Starbucks released new drinks, like the Cherry Blossom Frappuccino, Chile Mocha, Iced Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato, and, of course, the Pokemon GO Frappuccino.

  1. This would give my wife a chance to try the new Pokemon drink! (we both still happily play the Pokemon games)

  2. I like that Starbucks is trying to change things up. Some have been hits, others have been misses but I will always be a Starbucks fan.

  3. But the BEST is always the Chestnut Praline Latte — although I wish they’d bring back the summer drink they always used to have: cookie crumble (or crunch?) frappaccino!!

  4. Hi IB crew, I have to be honest with you. I have never been to a Starbucks for two reasons. One, I live in Southern Alabama and just recently found out that our Target has a mini Starbucks in it. The other reason is because the prices are way above my budget. I cannot afford it on my own and it truly upsets me because I am a foodie. I enjoy trying new foods and all the mom and pop restaurants that I can find. Food is a passion and not being able to try something because its out of my price range stings, badly. Sorry for the rant.

  5. I should win this because I’m really nice – and I love your blog. For real though, I do. Happy holidays!

  6. Starbucks also ended the year by changing up the holiday cup design yet again with some controversy…but not as much controversy as the presidential election! The gingerbread latte was not bad, but not as good as the peppermint.

  7. I hope they keep those freeze-dried blackberries around. I could make some good custom drinks with them!

  8. Happy Holidays, TIB! May your bellies be filled with the best and worst the grocery snack aisles have to offer.

  9. Do they have those crème brulee drinks this season? Because man those are good.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. Thanks for this giveaway! My favorite thing they released this year was their iced coconut milk mocha macchiato but if I win this gift card I’m definitely saving it to try one of their new gluten free products next year! I’m definitely curious what those will be like!

  11. Don’t go to starbucks often, but we have a new drive through one near me that opened! Good luck yall! Ey Marvo!

  12. I love this website I visit t everyday and I love Starbucks vanilla bean frappacino that’s what I would use this for I hope I win

  13. Aloha Marvo! Always checking to see what new goodies I need to look for. Glad to see when you buy new stuff since that means I’ll also be able to find it on Oahu!

    Mele Kalikimaka!

  14. That’s a shame that the CEO has to step down over the change in rewards program. Was that the reason? I wasn’t happy too at first but if people play the game right, they can still get good rewards regularly.

  15. I love my Oprah chai. You get a Starbucks gift card! You get a Starbucks gift card! You get a Starbucks gift card! You get a Starbucks gift card! You get a Starbucks gift card! You get a Starbucks gift card!
