I just heard from my friend and Starbucks manager that stores in the San Antonio area will once again be hosting a Stuff the Bus school donation drive this year!
From Monday, June 27 through Thursday, August 6, 2015, shoppers who bring at least THREE school supplies to their neighborhood Starbucks will receive either a free tall coffee or free iced tea as a thank-you!
Keep in mind that a free coffee means brewed coffee (and possibly iced coffee) so this offer will not count towards drinks like mochas or Frappuccinos.
Still, it's perfect timing for this promotion since there are a TON of school supplies on sale right now at various chains around town!
Here are a few of my favorite deals available this week that you could donate:
- Dollar General -- glue or glue sticks for 25 cents per pack!
- Office Max & Office Depot -- actually have select school supplies available for a PENNY each right now (with $5 minimum purchase.)
- Staples -- notebooks for a quarter each!
- Target -- Bic pens for 50 cents per pack!
- Walgreens -- paper folders for 10 cents each!
Limit one free drink per customer per visit, so if you want to donate lots, bring friends or family members with you so they can each snag their free brewed coffee or tea.
And keep in mind that this offer is likely limited to company-owned Starbucks stores. I don't think the stores inside Target or Barnes & Noble will be participating.
