Hi loves! Today is the day!!! In honor of my birthday being this month, we've done something special each week via TPA. It's a call to gather together and share gratitude for the ways God has been so good to us throughout 2014 so far. One of the things I'm grateful for is coffee (you, too?). Coffee has become something of an environment for me – in the mornings, it sets my mind in a time to be quiet and listen to the Lord. In the afternoons and evenings, it becomes the foundation for great conversations with friends, new and old. It's become an "excuse" of sorts to meet up and chat. It wraps me up in a warm hug and is a reminder of our Savior's warmth towards us. So this week, on my real birthday day, we're doing something extra fun...
Do you see that image above? It'll get you some coffee of your own! You can SCAN IT THIS WEEK at your nearest Starbucks. I put a little money on it, and you can use it to buy yourself a drink! All I ask is that you "reload" the card to keep the fun going :) You could put $1 on it, you could put $20 on it, or whatever amount you want – the sky's the limit! The more you put on, the more people you're treating today. Just tell the barista when you order that you'd like to put money on that card. I would especially love it if you would share about this little birthday gift; let's keep the party going! Post anywhere on social media (tag me in it because I'd love to see! @thatsprettyace) and say what you got.
- HOW TO GET YOUR COFFEE -
- Pull up this post or save the above image on your phone.
- Go to Starbucks.
- Order a drink.
- Hold the picture of the barcode in front of the barcode scanner.
- If there is enough money on my card, the POS will beep and your coffee will be paid for!
- If you'd like to reload the card, just let the barista know and how much, then scan the barcode once more.
If you don't get a chance to go to Starbucks, you can still participate by reloading the card! To do that, visit starbucks.com/card, click on Reload A Card (bottom center), and then follow the payment instructions (you'll have to log in to your Starbucks account or create an account). You can also reload it by using the Starbucks app on your phone.
If you get an error when clicking the link above, you can try these step-by-step instructions:
- Visit starbucks.com/card
- Scroll down to "Check Balance"
- Enter this card number: 6096230037122757 and this security number: 35671577
- Click "Reload This Card"
- Sign in to your account or create a Starbucks account (just name, email, password)
- Choose a reload amount
- Choose a payment method
- Click the Continue button
- Then you're done!
I will be closing the card next Monday morning (November 24) at 9:00 AM CST – in the past, people have had ongoing pay-it-forward cards that have had some fraudulent things occur with them. I wish it could go on forever, but it will only be for one week, so make sure you pop in and get your coffee! Thank you so much for making my birthday special by sharing the joy :) Hope you love your cup of joe!
