Starbucks Swindle 2013

January 2, 2013

Last year, Starbucks introduced the best deal ever when they released a coffee mug that could be refilled with free brewed coffee for the entire month of January 2012. It was a hell of a deal for black coffee drinkers for myself and, at $20, meant it could pay for itself in just 11 visits.

The deal is back on this year and my wife was awesome enough to stuff one of these mugs in my Christmas stocking. Even though the deal went up to $30, I think it is still a bargain, however, I never kept a tally of last year’s refills to see how much of a steal it was. I regret not doing that, so I’m going to use this post to see how it goes this year.
