Barista-made coffee is an expensive addiction that a lot of people fund but can’t afford.
One thrifty customer has found a way to claim all of his drinks on the house with his Starbucks card.
Anyone in-the-know will be aware of Starbucks’ birthday treat which gives customers a free drink of their choice on their special day…this person fully exploited the corporation’s kind gesture.
A Starbucks barista, Brad Halsey, wrote on Kitchenette:
There is a man who comes to my Starbucks every single day and orders the most horrible drink in an infuriating way.
He purchased 365 Starbucks cards and registered every one of them online with a different birthday so that he gets a ‘free birthday drink’ EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR.Advertisement
The tactical plan is unfortunately in breach of their terms as you are not allowed to take out more than one card in your own name.
Not sure how they would police that though…
I can’t imagine they’ll notice the missing funds anyway, with all that unpaid tax money sitting in the bank.
It’s a complete mocha-ry.
