This week has been crazy. So crazy that you forgot something kinda, sorta important: Something special for Mom. Oops. How did it happen?
Never fear, Starbucks is here to save your Mother’s Day. Which is good, because the only thing Mom likes more than a good glass of vino is a hot mug of happy (coffee, tea or me?).
Last year, Canadians spent $46.2MM at restaurants, jewellery stores and florists on Mother’s Day. But did Mom get exactly what she wanted? Probably not.
This year, why not give your mother something she’ll LOVE and reward yourself in the process? Whether the mom in your life is close by or far away, Starbucks will help you do the most important thing – show her you’re thinking about her. Here’s how.
Thanks, Mom! eGifting made easy
Starbucks and Visa® are making it even easier to send the gift of Starbucks to that special mom in your life. From May 5 -11, Canadians can visit Starbucks.ca to send an eGift card in various amounts by email. Customers who purchase eGifts with their Visa® credit card or Visa® Debit card will also receive a $5 Starbucks eGift Card for themselves. Starbucks is proud to be one of the latest brands in Canada to accept Visa® Debit – as a secure and simple way to use funds drawn from your bank account to make purchases on Starbucks.ca.
