    Ha Ha! Everyone seems to have a "niche" these days, sadly, this "niche" gets a little bit crowded, as everyone looks for the same stuff at all times!:oops::rolleyes:

    Although I'm not sure the beer and coffee niche worked out for SB...or at least I have not heard anything else about it.

    Register a gift card...collect 30 stars (1 per drink) in a year...works in the US, UK (recent addition), and Canada.

    I see. I don't think I would arrive at 30 drinks in a year from Starbucks in those regions- I do find I end up at the Hung Hom station Starbucks in Hong Kong fairly often as they also have free wifi- however if Asia is not part of the program I am probably not the target customer.

    They introduced this in Ireland too, only a few month ago! Some conditions, 1 drink = 1 star! Every 15 stars = a drink of your choice is free! But unlike the US // UK // Candada // Starbucks in Ireland wants 50 Stars to receive a GOLD CARD!

    Finally I get to pay $4.50 for a cup of Orange Juice! :p
     
  13. Congrats for a new beginning! Good to hear that Starbucks is looking for a new arena to grow and is eyeing natural foods.
