$2.80 can buy me happiness.
I have been lied to. I was mislead by a Starbucks employee that you cannot use Starbucks gift cards at the ones in Target. I guess the Starbucks employees have some secret feud with the Target and grocery Starbucks employees. The stand alone Starbucks feel like they are better trained and more "legit". I say who in the heck cares! I only treat myself to Starbucks when I have a giftcard, since I can make them at home with my Barista for free. I can't tell you how many countless times I have been desperate for one while grocery shopping or on a Target run. Today it is 105 degrees and I was beyond hot, tired and exhausted. I decided to bend my rule and buy myself a treat with actual cash. As I was waiting in line I noticed that they sell giftcards and thought... they must take them too, right? So I asked and THEY DO! All these times I have walked away empty and sad, for nothing! So, I tried a Double Shot on ice (I normally get boring Iced Coffee... only 15 cents cheaper) and I am in paradise! Just enough creaminess, sweetness and kick. I had to take a picture of it in the parking lot because I knew it wouldn't last the 4 minute drive home. Thank you Target! Boo on you lying employee!
