Most non-Starbucks fans aren’t aware of this weekly freebie. (Actually, even some regulars don’t know.) Every Tuesday, the ubiquitous coffee chain offers its “Pick of the Week” for FREE. “What is it?”, you ask. It’s a FREE downloadable song, book or app — just stop by and pick up each week’s redemption code. No purchase necessary, non-coffee drinkers. The “Pick of the Week” card can usually be found near the register or pick-up counter. If not, just ask one of the friendly baristas for assistance. We’ve picked up books, songs and apps ranging in value from 99¢ to $19.99. It’s an easy and worthwhile stop, especially because there’s a café on every corner or so it seems. Of course, you must own the proper mobile device – as picks are available via iTunes or the App Store.

If Starbucks is part of your daily or weekly ritual, you should join its customer loyalty program – My Starbucks Rewards. To get started, you must register a Starbucks card (any gift card you find at a café), so your purchases can be tracked. The program is not based on dollar amount spent, but rather each swipe of the card. One swipe (regardless of purchase amount) = one gold star.
