WFMW: Save Money at Starbucks

Pin It Now!
As if you really could "save" money at Starbucks. I guess my tip is more of a don't-spend-as-much-money-at-Starbucks tip.

I am not even a coffee drinker, but oh, how I have developed a passion for Green Tea Frappuchinos!!!! Sometimes it's fun to treat the kids to one as well, but like I said, they're not CHEAP!!

So, instead of ordering each kid and myself a separate tall, which would be around $15.20, I order 2 venti-sized fraps. Total--$9.90. A savings of $5.30!

All I do is ask for 2 extra tall cups please. And you know what? Because Starbucks has such amazing service, at most places I don't even have to do the pouring. A kind associate usually pours equal amounts into all the cups and then even asks my children if they want whip with that!!

Yes, that means we only get to pick 2 flavors, but my kids understand that it's either that or nothing. =) And it's a rare treat, too, like yesterday when it was just a me and Shiloh day.

That is such a great idea! I even just asked my Starbucks-working daughter and she says that she's had a couple people do this. Never thought of doing this.

that is a good idea--bigger sizes are more economical, but so much sugar unless you're sharing:)
