Starbucks on the Go
It’s that time of the year - road trip time! And, from the sound of your ideas, many of you want to know how to find Starbucks while you are traveling this summer.

Together we are Shaping the Future of the Starbucks Card
Hi, Over the past few months, I have been reading your ideas and comments for incentives or special offers related to the Starbucks Card. I’ve learned a lot about what sparks your interest like our one-time Starbucks Card 5-pack at Costco and Visa's $5 bonus load for new registered card members. I’ve noticed more than anything that your ideas about offering incentives all share a common principal: you want your Starbucks Card to bring you value. We’ve heard you and have a way to give you more value than ever. Just register your Starbucks Card and when you use it you’ll get great benefits like a free tall (12 fl. oz.) brewed or hand-crafted beverage with a 1lb. whole … more »

Free Pastry Day!
Hi Everyone! Today, July 21, 2009 is “Free Pastry Day” at a participating Starbucks store near you. To show you how excited we are about our new food offerings, Starbucks offered customers a free pastry with purchase of a brewed or hand-crafted beverage. “Free Pastry Day” started when the stores opened and ran until 10:30 a.m. (or while supplies lasted). Starbucks offers a long list of new morning goodies, which are now free of artificial flavors, dyes, trans fats and high-fructose corn syrup. My favorite, which gets me moving in the morning, is the Banana Walnut Bread. Paired with my favorite morning drink, it’s a great start to the day. I encourage you to try something … more »
What is LEED® certification?
Hi! My name is John and I work on our store development team. With all the recent press about our renovated University Village store and its goal of LEED® certification, we’ve learned that many of you are interested in knowing what LEED is and what else we are doing in this area of store development.

The certification provides proof that prerequisite standards are met for site construction, energy use, indoor air quality and recycling. Many items that may be documented for certification include … more »

Hi there! My name is Lindsey Austin, and I work on the Marketing Team. I support our partnership with (PRODUCT)RED™, a key component of Starbucks™ Shared Planet™ and our ongoing commitment to the people and communities that grow our coffee.
