I was messing around on the starbucks website while checking out options for auto-reloading my starbucks card. I came across this cool custom card page, where you could create a completely unique card with various designs and colors. I really wanted to opt for the white design called “The Original”, which has the 6 boxes (Decaf, Shots, Syrup, etc) and fill out my usual drink. But that option wasn’t as open-ended as I wanted it to be. It only let you select from a list of popular drinks (coffee, latte, frappucino, etc), but not my drink of choice – a Misto. Even worse, they don’t allow you to order the card with empty boxes printed on it; it forces you to have something written in at least one of the boxes. It’s an unnecessary limitation, if you ask me. So I went in a slightly different direction:
After spending a while looking through every single one of their offerings, I was pleasantly surprised at one in particular that allowed me to choose a blank white card. I just typed my name in there somewhere, and it came out looking pretty nice and clean. I think it looks way better than the stupid gold card. Plus, any old starbucks customer gets the same old gold card after buying a measly month’s worth of drinks. I like this one. It’s nice and unique. And all mine. I think it was pretty good for a $4 purchase.
