Giveaway: $10 Starbucks Gift Cards – 5 Winners!

UPDATE: This giveaway has ended. Winners will be announced soon!

While I can help you save money through deals, coupons and helping you streamline some cooking processes, the one thing I cannot share with you all is great financial advice. I’m talking about things such as Roth IRAs, planning for retirement, credit scores, etc. This is why it’s so great that the blogosphere is full of so many diverse bloggers!

My friend Sean is founder of One Smart Dollar. It’s a great financial blog that will help you learn about all these things and so much more. He also gives great tips such as the article I liked on The Best Day to Buy Specific Items. Sean has a very solid financial background and I love how he is able to share articles in an “everyday language” that’s easy enough for me to read.

Sean was sweet to offer me $10 Starbucks Gift Cards to the 5 winners of this giveaway so they can save some money on their favorite drinks while reading up on some great financial advice on One Smart Dollar. I’m hoping you’ll all take a minute to checkout his website to see if you might be able to find some bigger savings for your futures!

    picking just ONE thing is hard for me -lol -but you can only have one drink at a time so i think the first would be a tall iced caramel macchiato made upside down

  8. Janice G. says

    Oopsy, I forgot to mention what I’d get.
    I’d get what I always get! A raspberry soy latte. :)

  9. mary jane s. says

    I love vanilla latte’s decaffeinated and only skim milk, piping hot! Love love Starbucks but my budget never allows me to make Howard Schultz richer than he already is…but I can dream and the store where I shop the Starbucks is smack dab in the middle of the store and I smell for free the coffee drinks..making me okay with the products!

    I would get a coconut cream frappuccino (if they bring them back this summer) to split with my best friend, and a lemon scone to split with her and her son.

  20. Arianne VanDerWege says

    The only thing better than getting on top of financial planning would be enjoying a passion tea lemonade at the same time!

  21. Sue Hall says

    I would love to have a starbuck gift card. I have never tried thier coffee, would like to see what everyone is bragging about starbucks. I like just plain coffee.

  22. Christy says

    I am a new and exhausted mother. My daughter arrived on April 16th. I would order an almond latte. Don’t know why that sounds so good right now… I thought cravings were supposed to end once the babe gets here?

    My daughter in law lives practically at Starbucks, in fact, before moving to DC she worked at one while going to college- she is hooked! sadly I don’t have one near me, but I buy her gift cards all the time! Love Coupon Geek, that is where I heard about this deal!

  51. l bryant says

    I get the newsletter. I want to sit down and order coffee with my daughter who graduates from college on sunday. (She was diagnosed with cancer at 2 years old and we were told after 7 years of treatment that college would probably not be possible. She will graduate magna cum and received the faculty award from her college). I want to tell her how proud I am of her and why planning her financial future is as important as her career and her happiness.

  52. Tara F. says

    My favorite drink to order is a Half Caf, Skinny, Light foam, Caramel Macchiato. I usually get a grande, but if I win, I’ll treat myself to a Venti.
