Free 12 oz. Coffee From Starbucks for Homeschooling Parents
In September, from what I read on the Internet here and here, each Monday in September, school teachers were offered a free 12 oz. (a “tall”) cup of Pike Place Roast coffee to celebrate the return to school for a "teacher appreciation Mondays" promotion.
On a state homeschool chat list that I am on, some homeschool parents were saying they got free beverages, not that coffee and not that size, but bigger and better drinks!
Something must have gone wrong with some homeschooling parents as per this announcement on the HSLDA site, HSLDA intervened and got Starbucks to officially allow homeschooling parents to participate, on the only Monday left in the month, September 29, 2008.
According to the HSLDA site you must show proof that you homeschool (see the announcement for a list of documents they feel Starbucks will accept). This special offer is for all homeschoolers not just for HSLDA members.
With the cost of gas it is hardly worth it for me to intentionally drive to a Starbucks for a free 12 ounce cup of joe. Plus if I go with kids in tow during the daytime, I'll end up shelling out money for them to get a special drink too. Perhaps I'll go out for a little "me time" by myself for a cup of decaf in the evening.
I love the taste of Starbucks coffee so I buy it at a discount from Costco and brew it at home. It costs too much to buy coffee daily at Starbucks-- I do not want to spend my money in that way. Instead, I save buying from Starbucks stores for special occasions.
