That's a pretty good angle, Rehsom, if it works. Like Andrew Mack, I ain't much of a Starbucks guy, but that IS a clever move.

If available, put it on a Starbucks card that you can later redeem for their products once you are home.

Interesting idea but I'm with Andrew - if Starbucks made decent coffee I'd be more inclined to follow the suggestion ;)

Starbucks sells other things. You can get pastries and juices there. We don't go to Starbucks but I walk by the one in our bookstore often. The gift card thing sounds like a great idea. You don't have to drink the coffee.

I seem to be the only one that doesn't understand how you can use foreign currency on a Starbucks card Could someone explain how this works I'm really intrigued

You buy a card in a Starbucks in the country you are visiting (maybe at the airport) using your spare foreign currency. The card is valid for use in any Starbucks so you 'spend' it when you get home or when travelling elsewhere

Thanks for this I didn't realise Starbucks cards could be used in any country.
