Starbucks hack?
« on: December 30, 2012, 04:00:18 PM »
Saw this on another site,

 You can get free Starbucks with an empty Starbucks gift card. You could alao use one that has money loaded on it and nothing will be taken out.

When I figured that it would work, I bought holiday coffees and a bunch of food I normally wouldn't buy. I also bought some of their merchandise, but nothing really expensive in case the barista would catch on. This still works today, so for obvious reasons I won't say when to do it (that's a hint). However, it only works in certain circumstances and you wouldn't be able to do it often anyways.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Maybe he means you hand them an empty gift card and ask them to run it through a few times they get frustrated and then you use the 5 finger method?
