I'm going to let you in on one of the biggest secrets I've learned writing about food and drink deals day in and day out: So many of your favorite restaurants and coffee shops have loyalty programs. Yes, seriously—even if you think they don't, just give it a quick Google and you'll probably find it! That means if you're not a part of those programs you're literally leaving free food on the table. How wasteful! All you have to do is sign up for the Starbucks Rewards Program, download the app, make your first transaction as a member, and you'll then receive a free Starbucks drink in the form of stars on the app. That will get you one standard-menu size handcrafted beverage like, say, the chain's newest Guava Passionfruit Drink or maybe a S'more Frappuccino? I dunno, I'm not going to pick for you! You can find full details here. Like all good things, this offer is only good for a limited time.
