Cool Idea From Starbucks Reuseable Travel Mug Doubles As Gift Card

Great article from Inhabitat’s coffee drinkers are suggesting that Starbucks could motivate customers to bring in their own mugs, commuter or standard, if they doubled as a gift card. It’s an especially great idea over the next couple years until Starbucks manufacturers their own recyclable cups. The hell with that – it’s a great idea even when they do have the recyclable cups!

Our own Jubbling spin on the idea: maybe as an added incentive, Starbucks could randomly add drinks to the accounts of commuter cup-card users. A little sweepstakes to mix with my daily caffeine would be nice morning jolt.
