Sure, there are all these "craft" coffee and tea houses coming on to the scene. But, let's face it. When we're in need of a caffeine of sugar rush, we all head to Starbucks for a five-dollar latte and a slice of lemon cake.
And, as sure as that barista is going to spell our name wrong once again on the cup (it's Laine -- not Layle, not Lady, and certainly not Louise), we're going to complain about the price.
But what if we told you that you could get $10 worth of mocha frappuccinos and peppermint cocoas for $5?
That's right, friends. Groupon, once again, is offering a half-priced Starbucks deal.
Your Groupon is good at all participating Starbucks locations in the United States only and the Groupon is valid until May 1, 2014 (but who would leave a $10 Starbucks voucher in their possession for that long). So far, over 100,000 of these have been purchased (which means a hell of a lot of people getting the caffeine jitters). Oh, and you can only purchase one Starbucks Groupon - for you or a friend (darn).
In any event, we already purchased ours and the site says supplies are limited with two days left to purchase. We're just going to make a quick Starbucks run...
