I don’t know about you, but I’m bummed over the end of the Starbucks and iTunes music promotion which ended last month. The promotion ran October 2nd and ended November 7th to be exact, but every time I go to Starbucks I can’t help but look for the little “redeem-me-now” credit sized cards. Maybe I’m in a need deprivation state of mind?
I remember first learning about the promotion where I get a free, new song every day in Starbucks. It made my morning stop so much more pleasant. The first artist was Dylan and included other greats such as Gloria Estefan, Dave Matthews, John Mayer and many more. Personally, I thought this was a great combination of two awesome products, coffee and music, brought to me by folks who know how to pamper my whims and do it so well, “Bucks” and “Mac”. I don’t have an exact count on the total number of artists, but I collected 31 of those little redeemable cards and punched in 100’s of alpha-numerical characters to obtain the music goods. How many did you collect?
But, don’t worry about my Apple/Starbuck-withdrawal-syndrome (ASWS). I continue to frequent the place and now find myself trying to resist the urge to buy a CD every time I get a latte! Maybe that was the intent…everytime I sip a latte I think of a song?!
Hey don’t forget — you have until the end of December to redeem all those Song-of-the-Day cards.
