Starbucks coffee bags = free coffee

Hello everyone! I've been vacationing for the last week with the in-laws in Missouri. I'm home now and feeling incredibly well-rested (and well-fed).

And while I was there, I learned this:

If you take the empty Starbucks coffee bags back to Starbucks, you get a free cup of coffee.


I know! It says so, right on the bag. I don't know how I didn't know this before.

Probably because I don't drink Starbucks. They have plenty enough money without any of my own, and their coffee tastes burnt to me. (It is burnt--they dark-roast their beans, and dark-roasting is usually done to disguise the poor quality of inferior beans. Starbucks = crappy, inferior coffee.) But my husband is quite happy to drink their Kool-Aid, metaphorically speaking, and my in-laws purchase their bags of coffee to use at home. They gave us their back supply of empty bags, so now my husband has 10 or 12 free cups of coffee in his future.

So if you drink Starbucks at home, too, remember to cash those empty bags back in for your free cup of joe.

  1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks their coffee tastes burnt and disgusting.

    Interesting to know about the bags, though!
