Giveaway: $10 Starbucks Gift Card – 5 Winners!

UPDATE: Giveaway has ended. Winners will be announced soon!

Whenever I ask my readers what types of giveaways they’d like to see, I often hear two things: Gift Cards and Starbucks. So I’m thinking that a Starbucks Gift Card might be a good fit? lol.

When I’m reading my favorite blogs, I often like to make a nice cup of hot tea before I indulge in some “me-time.” There’s just something about drinking a nice warm beverage that can make me just relax and almost allow me to pretend I’m getting a few minutes of vacation time!!

As I’ve mentioned earlier in the week, I’ve launched a new site called Glowing Gazelles where I’ll be sharing more of my posts on fitness, finance, food and family. Part of the reason for this is that I want to continue to keep Coupon Geek as a place where you can quickly go to scan for deals, coupons and freebies when you are pressed for time. But when you want to kick back and read up on some ways to save money long-term, learn about Organics, find some motivation for fitness, learn more about freezer cooking or find some new ideas for family fun, I hope you’ll consider checking out what I’m slowly building up on Glowing Gazelles.

So I’m giving away a $10 Starbucks Gift Card to 5 of my lucky readers that win this giveaway so they can also enjoy a warm (or cold!) beverage from Starbucks while reading their favorite blogs, whatever those may be! There are so many wonderful blogs out there and I hope that you find one that is a perfect fit for YOU, whether that be on one of mine or elsewhere.

    I dont go to Starbucks but if I won the card I would! I’d order something chocolately and frozen.

    I love an Americano with a pump of SF vanilla. I tend to be more indulgent near the holidays, and have been known to get a gingerbread latte or peppermint mocha. Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. davis says

    Hmmm…I change my order all the time…its typically a latte and I just change the flavor…the salted caramel is amazing!

  10. lynn says

    My favorite drink is the caramel apple spice during the holidays! MMM! Or a caramel frappaccino!

  15. mary jane s. says

    I enjoy a vanilla skim decaff latte, warmed up hot….it is too expensive for me to get it anymore but would to win the gift card, I think I could manage to spoil myself with that gift card. ciao!

  16. JD says

    my fave thing to order depends on the season, summer was the mocha coconut frappucino and right now its a pumpkin spice chai tea latte

  17. Brandy says

    I absolutely love being the walking contradiction…. Non-fat White Chocolate Mocha, no foam, EXTRA WHIP! Especially when I’m out couponing, this is a “well earned treat!”

  18. says

    Aloha :) I’m a bit obsessed with mocha frappucinnos. Okay, maybe more than a bit. A few years ago I started getting these terrible migraines; long story short it was a cyst on my brain which apparently a lot of people have so no worries. But basically the only thing I could get was a million meds that sort of lessened the pain. Well, one day I thought, “hey! Caffeine might help!!” so I got a mocha frappucino at Starbucks. And ever since then I’m obsessed with them and they’re the only thing to get me through a bad migraine morning.

  19. says

    I subscribed to your email newsletter too. By the way if you’re looking to compile fitness related stuff their are some really great fitblrs to check out for ideas. Although I don’t know if you’re into Tumblr or fitblrs, just an idea. :)

  20. Dawn Takagi says

    I like the non-coffee drinks like the Hibiscus Berry Refresher and the Vanilla Bean Frappuccino.

  21. Gail Roland says

    My favorite Starbuck’S Coffee this time of year is Pumpkin Spice. I have to drive at least 40 miles to get to a Starbucks as I live in the country , but I go as often as I can. I am a disabled Veteran and they have 2 at the VA hospital so it makes my visits there enjoyable. Gail Roland Thanks.

  22. Candice C. says

    My favorite things to order from Starbucks: Iced vanilla lattes, tiramisu cake pops, and artisan ham breakfast sandwiches. Thanks for the giveaway!

  23. Natalie Canales says

    Strawberries and Cream Frappicino ! ( I dont think I spelled that right but oh well!) 😀

  24. says

    My favorites vary at S’bux but lately I’ve been drinking 1 pump mocha lattes brewed at 130* (something one of the baristas taught me! I don’t burn my mouth). My son’s favorite is the pink “birthday cake” cake pop.

  25. Sarabeth says

    Definitely a pumpkin spice latte now that it’s fall! And I’ll be needing that extra caffeine to get me through this month of grad school :)

  26. Maria says

    I like the seasonal lattes! In the other three non-fall seasons I enjoy a steaming cup of coffee.

  27. skizzatt says

    Have only ordered at Starbucks once so I don’t have a favorite. Would love to win so my husband and I could try a new coffee beverage for our 49th anniversary on Oct 26th. We are huge coffee drinkers!

  28. mary jane s. says

    I enjoyed their hot chocolate with caramel and sea salt. Had a tiny one yesterday, yummmmy yummmmmy for the tummy..Love your blog! ciao and would love to win the starbucks gift card!!!!!!

    I am on such a tight budget that I have never been to a Starbucks! Boy, would I like to get a chance to see what this praised coffee tastes like.

  31. Patricia Stewart says

    First, I LOVE your daily email. My favorite thing to order at Starbucks is a venti mocha, no whipped creme, light or sugar free syrup if they have it. Second favorite is whatever plain coffee they have for the day, ’cause theirs is GOOD!

  32. Dena Luce says

    This one is easy! My favorite is a Pumpkin Spice Latte with a piece of their awesome Pumpkin Loaf. It’s the perfect breakfast or snack!

  33. Jude Bell says

    My favorite item to order at Starbuck’s is a coffee frappuccino. It’s cool and icy and has fabulous coffee flavor. Very refreshing.

  34. Amy L says

    I like to order a Sumatra half-caff French press with a shot of vanilla syrup and cream. I LOVE their gingerbread too!

    I have been on Weight Watchers for almost a year and a half and have lost over 60 lbs., but I will not give up my Starbucks!! My favorite thing to order is a tall, skinny, peppermint mocha without whipped for only 2 points!!!

  45. Catherine says

    Most of the year, I indulge in a caramel macchiato – but I can’t resist a salted caramel mocha on frigid days!!
