Starbucks is offering a deal today via Zulily. If you purchase a $25 Starbucks gift card for $25 today and use it by 12/31/2013, then you will receive a $10 eGift card to use in January. This is a good deal that can be combined with the Starbucks Tumbler deal. (It is sold out online, but you should be able to find it in stores.) If you buy the Tumbler for $30, then you will receive a free cup of drip coffee every day in January. If you work the deal out, then $30 ($25 for the gift card plus $5 more for the tumbler) gets you a souvenir cup, free coffee every day in January and a $10 gift card. Not bad!
The other great deal today is with Uber! If you are not aware of Uber, it is a wonderful new car service that allows you to hire a car and pay directly through their app. In addition to making the whole payment process convenient, you can also track the location of your car in the app and read reviews about the driver. We used the service back in July during our trip to San Francisco. It took a total of two minutes for the driver to show up at our hotel. He then gave us a short tour on the way to the Walt Disney Family Museum. The entire experience was both impressive and seamless.
Today Uber is offering a $25 credit for new account via Amazon Local. Additionally, if you sign up via this link, you will receive an additional $10 credit. (Disclosure: This is my referral link so I will earn $10 as well!) Simply click here and sign up. Then go to the promotional code section of your account and apply the code you received from Amazon Local. Suddenly, you will have $35 to use for your first Uber ride! I think you will be impressed by the service and if not, then you aren’t out any money!
