If you have followed this crusade for any period of time, you know that there is no Starbucks within 20 minutes of Anderson, SC.
Since we live in such famine conditions, I stop every time I have the opportunity to grab a grande Pike's Place. One of the most frustrating things to me was the fact that they have wi-fi, but want to charge me money to use it. Frustrating.
Then, I started reading the small print and realized that I could have two hours of free internet every day at Starbucks simply by obtaining a gift card.
So, here is what I do. Instead of just purchasing the grande Pike's Place coffee, I load up some money on my gift card and then purchase the coffee with my gift card. Since I was going to purchase the coffee anyway, it is worth the small inconvenience to load up the gift card to get free wi-fi internet.
Hopefully this helps out all of you who are blessed with a Starbucks in your immediate vicinity. And if you work for Starbucks, please tell them to open a location in Anderson, SC.
