We have a new Starbucks Card I want to tell you about. Our first ever “Teacher Appreciation” Card was created as a way for students and parents to honor the dedicated teachers in their lives. Its launch coincides with 2012’s National Teacher Appreciation Week starting on May 7, but it’s a gesture of gratitude teachers can carry all year long. The card will be available in our stores mid-April (while supplies last), and online for anyone who wants the convenience of the eGift digital version. Sure beats apples, we think.
