Need an afternoon pick-me-up? Make sure to bring your morning receipt.
Starbucks, one of the most popular stores on Shoeboxed, launched a nationwide promotion whereby you can get $2 off an afternoon iced coffee if you bring in a receipt from earlier in the morning. This can mean significant savings, as an iced latte can run over $4.
I love promotions, but I especially love promotions that involve receipts! Hurry though; this receipt-related coffee offer is only available through September 2.
The move to expand the afternoon iced drinks promotion comes after Starbucks said last week it would offer more “value” in its fall and holiday offerings. In a conference call with investors, Chief Executive Howard Schultz said the company may offer deals to consumers who use Starbucks customer cards.
Starbucks has already been testing a variety of regional promotions this summer. In some cities, it has offered discounted drinks on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. In July, the chain also gave away 12-ounce iced coffees on Wednesdays to customers in New York City, Philadelphia, Washington, Boston and Detroit who turned over an “iced brewed coffee card,” a reusable voucher distributed in stores and newspaper inserts.
