Starbucks Arbitrage

Starbucks is starting a new gimmick nationwide today to try and boost afternoon sales. Essentially, if you buy a drink in the morning, bring your receipt in after 2PM that same day, and get any Grande cold drink for just $2 plus tax. Some drinks offer significant savings with this deal.

So what if I buy a coffee in the morning, but I’m not really a coffee-in-the-afternoon kind of girl? I can sell my receipt to some afternoon coffee addict! Starbucks arbitrage! I’m going to try it this afternoon. Any takers? I have a receipt from this morning, I’ll sell it to you for $1. Send me an email. It would be most convenient if I could meet you somewhere in West Hartford Center. I’m not driving my receipts around… 🙂
