Latte Moment: April 24 Free Starbucks Day?

April 24, 2015 Free Starbucks?!
I am so upset right now because I missed out on the FREE Starbucks yesterday. I was unwell in bed studying for a final when I received a text from a friend telling me how Starbucks' Point of Sales program was down; therefore, Starbucks was giving drinks for free! Turns out, this was not isolated to one location, Starbucks' computer system was down all across Canada and USA! This occurred around 4pm PST and I think they got their computers back online around 9:30 pm. 

Some locations gave out free drinks for a few hours and eventually closed their stores, while some locations restricted what type of free drink you were allowed to order as well only one per person. Needless to say, if you were lucky, you got a free drink! 

Even though I am a gold member --> No DUH, I do get a free handcrafted beverage or food choice after earning 12 stars. HOWEVER, that does not compare to the thrill of walking into your local Starbucks and being given your drink for free!

Dolls, I think April 24 from now on should be International FREE Starbucks DAY! Starbucks is a giant business whose revenues would not suffer if they gave out Free Drinks one day out of a year? APRIL 24 FREE STARBUCKS DAY! 

So since I missed out on the free Starbucks yesterday, the only logical thing to do was to go out and get my own darn drink! I am special too! So today dolls, I am sipping on my Grande Lite Ice Black Tea Lemonade! The secret to getting more out of your iced beverages is to ask for "Lite Ice," otherwise, you end up with 3/4 of a glass of ice!

Also, I am sorry Dolls that I have not been posting as much as usual. Just really not well and swamped with finals :( BUT my last final is on Tuesday so Summer is almost here!
