As I type this, there are about six hours left on this Starbucks Living Social deal, but I thought it would be a good mid-week deal to tell you about. You can get a $10 Starbucks gift certificate via email for $5, keep it in your wallet and have it for an emergency pick-me-up of coffee, tea or a light bite. You need to hurry; the deal ends at midnight tonight.


When I’m traveling, and I need a quick bite in the train station or airport, I usually head for the Starbucks. If I’m in a real hurry, I know I can always find a KIND bar and some fruit to eat as I’m running to catch my ride. They often have organic beverage options, too. Having a $10 Starbucks gift card in my wallet will be very beneficial next time I travel.


Note: Most Living Social deals can be free if you purchase the deal and give out a personal link you’re provided with to the deal. If three people purchase from your personal link, you can get the deal for free. The link in this post is not my personal link; it’s the general link to the deal. I won’t be getting anything for free if you purchase from it.
