In Portland, Oregon, Starbucks fans can pre-order and pay for their drink using their mobile devices. The Midwest has already experienced the new forthcoming holiday drink, the Chestnut Praline Latte or CPL. In Hawaii, well, we have the Hawaii Oat Cake. Yes, an oat cake. How exciting.
On a backhanded positive note, our state is getting Clover brewing systems as we wait until November 12 for the national launch of the CPL. All of these oversights will be forgiven, however, if I happen to be one of the ten “Starbucks for Life” winners. From December 2 to 25, Starbucks will run its biggest promotion to date – a “lifetime” of free drinks. To enter, all you have to do is to use your registered Starbucks card or mobile device to make your Starbucks buys.
