Starbucks RED

It's been awhile since i've made a Starbucks post. Not much at Starbucks thrills me these days, but just today i discovered something awesome at the store and thought that you should be informed. I came across a new Starbucks card that we have. Called a Starbucks RED Card.
Every time you use your (STARBUCKS)RED Card to pay for purchases at participating Starbucks stores between 1/3/09 and 12/31/09 (the entire year of 2009!!), Starbucks will donate 5 cents to the Global Fund to help save lives in Africa.

How awesome! I know that I've posted before about Starbucks RED Campaign and about all of the awesome benefits of now having a Starbucks card. Just a refresher:

When you make any purchases with a registered Starbucks card, you will get:
-free syrups and specialty milks (soy, etc...)
-a free tall beverage with purchase of 1lb of whole beans
-2 free hours of wi-fi every day
-free refills of coffee when you're chillin in the cafe'
And don't forget the idea that having this card will help you to budget your purchases.

I got a few Starbucks cards as gifts for Christmas so i loaded the amounts of them both on a new Starbucks RED card and registered it online today. I usually spend about a dollar every day that i'm working at starbucks - so now, 5 cents of each purchase goes to the Golbal Fund. That's pretty cool. It's not like i'm BUYING the card - all the money i put on there goes directly back into my purchases.
So, why not?

At first I was like, "WHAT?!?!, Why would someone get a girl that works at Starbucks a Starbucks card, isn't that kind of dumb?!?!" But then when I kept reading I realized that you probably pay for part of your drinks while you work. Can you load one card onto a different card for free?

yeah, i actually do get free drinks while at work, but i stop by often on my days off and during my lunch i always buy a sandwich or something and landon likes me to bring him home a yummy pastry, so i do spend some mullah there. and you CAN load old cards onto a new card for free - no prob!
