It’s no secret that we here at The Constant Rambler love coffee. I find it necessary to function and essential to a happy day. This is one of the reasons that I adore Starbucks. Since becoming a blogger though, my love for this company has grown and now I find that they have become a necessity to my travel lifestyle.
Starbucks has two things that are essential for every bloggers’ life…caffeine and wi-fi. Grabbing a venti cup of heaven and sitting down to get some work done is always easy to do here. Sometimes we encounter hotels that have very slow internet service or ::gasp:: hotels that charge for wi-fi access, and then our best option is to find the nearest Starbucks and set up shop. We seem to do this often enough where we have managed to acquire a gold card so refills on regular brewed coffee are free and we earn free treats every couple of purchases as well. I’d rather pay three bucks for a cup of coffee and free, fast wi-fi than pay ten bucks at a hotel for wi-fi that is slow and disconnects me every twenty minutes.
We travel all over the country for great cups of coffee. Starbucks might not have the very best cup we’ve ever had, but their consistency in making a good cup every time will keep us loyal. Throw in the extremely friendly service, their customer loyalty program and the free wi-fi and you have two very happy travelers. We are on the road full-time and a Starbucks is almost always close at hand. It’s a great place to grab a pick me up so we can stay awake on long journeys as well. Did I mention that we love coffee? It seems another cup is right on our horizon at all times!
This post was in no way sponsored by Starbucks. I just felt the need to give credit where credit is due and to offer things like their gold card program and free wi-fi means they do keep their customers in mind. I will always endorse a company that keeps me happy and stress-free while making a profit at the same time.
