Instant Savings on Instant Coffee: Tip-of-the-Day #222


I walked into Starbucks the other day and while waiting in line to order my grande, non-fat, one Splenda latte, picked up a pack of their "new" VIA coffee packets to see what the fuss was about. Well, turns out Starbucks has found a way to capitalize on instant coffee. Gone is the stigma of Folgers, this tiny packet of goodness promises to deliver a full-bodied and flavorful experience, simulating what you'd get in-store.

No price on the pack but I figured it couldn't be more than say...$6? So I gave it a whirl. Picked up the "cinnamon enhanced" version and made my way to the counter. Surprise! With my purchase of VIA, my latte was free! At $6.95, that's 50% off the VIA! I liked that, a lot.

Got back to my office and after inhaling my latte, whipped up a cup of my new cinnamon instant delight and believe it or not, liked that too!

Just thought I'd let you smart women know that you can try something new (6 packets worth) for very little - not sure how long this special is going to last, but I'll bet you can mention this post for the same treatment!
