Officially Summer!Posted: July 19, 2011
I was just telling my mom and Braed the other day how it just doesn’t feel like summer until Starbucks launches their treat receipts… and yesterday… IT HAPPENED! Happy SUMMER!!
I went into Starbucks today completely unaware, so I was pleasantly surprised when I was being handed my receipt even though I hadn’t asked for one. The cashier began to point to the bottom of my receipt and I started to get butterflies. “Yes!!! I was JUST saying how it really isn’t summer until I get my first treat receipt!” Well… the cashier is used to my weirdness, so he wasn’t TOO shocked, but I don’t think he was expecting that level of enthusiasm.
Big question #1: Do you even know what I am talking about?
If you don’t… your life is awful. What is wrong with you? There is only one good reason why you have never gotten a treat receipt and that is if you wake up at 1pm in the summer, so you have never made it to Starbucks before 2pm to get your treat. You are forgiven. If you go to Starbucks in the morning and you still don’t know what I’m talking about… you are really dumb. If you have never been to Starbucks because you “don’t believe in Starbucks” then you are such a hipster that you probably hate my blog anyway, so nvm.
For the rest of you… customers receive a “treat receipt” at Starbucks from July 18 to Sept 5, 2011when they visit and make a purchase before 2pm. THEN… you can come back after 2pm for a $2 grande cold beverage. It is not like the deal of the century, and nothing is free, but it makes me happy. So SHUUUT up
Big question #2: Will I use my treat receipt today?
Maybe, maybe not. If I do, it will probably be instead of Yogurtland tonight because I had my first Starbucks beverage today around noon. I almost fit into the forgiven category from above. jeez. I do have a brain, so I realize you save more money not going to Starbucks at all. $2 is still $2.
ANYWAY… HAPPY SUMMER, my Starbucks lovers!
