$100 Starbucks gift cards for $79.99 at Costco

I just came back from Costco and they are selling 5 x $20 Starbucks gift cards for $79.99. That's a saving of 20%.

Great deal for Starbucks lovers !

Good deal indeed. I think I did a bit better on eBay though with 30% cashback on free drink certs.

Starwood - was that a "Buy It Now" transaction on eBay or did you enter an auction to get the 30% discount?

I didn't test out the overpriced hysteria (yet.)

I purchased free drink coupons which worked out to $2.2 per drink after 30% cashback. Usually my overly complicated Starbucks orders work out to $5-6/drink

See the other thread for the Live.com cashback details.

Note that the T&C reserve the right to disallow gift certificate purchases.

I was given 2x5 discount coupons for Starbucks upon entering Costco in Atlanta today. I guess you can get them at any Costco.

# 63 has had them in ANC for about a week now...

(And I think you get 2% rebate for the Executive Membership too, on top of anything with an AMEX card)

They are pretty nice looking with carriers too-

Too bad there's no Costco in my area. It would have been great holiday gifts

I don't suppose Starbucks has a mechanism for refunding gift cards, do they?

How many cards of these cards will you need just to buy a cup of coffee at Starbucks?
