The Seattle's Best Coffee giveaway is over. There were a grand total of 113 comments, although I did not count my own comments in the running for a prize. I wrote 9 comments. Nob wrote 3 comments that did not count (not in the US). That meant that 101 entries went into the hat for a prize. This contest brought out a lot of new names, and there were two Amys, one Alex, and one Alexander, and two Tims, but I think I kept them all separated correctly. It wasn't that hard. I just made a tally one by one, added it up, wrote names on little cards, and threw them in a hat. However the hat that I picked out was too small for this giveaway. I actually ended up using an Eddie Bauer bag. The five winners of the "Curiosity Pack" of various coffees and iced coffees are:
- Tim (not Tim Sandor but the other Tim)
These five people need to contact me as soon as possible so I can figure out how to get them their prize. If the prize has not been spoken for within 48 hours, I will draw again. My email is Melody@StarbucksMelody.com.
There were three consolation prizes. These three people won a $5 Starbucks gift card. I don't have a photo of those cards but they were the following people:
- Tim Sandor
I've already given all of you my email address, but once again, please claim your prize by emailing me at Melody@StarbucksMelody.com.
And this is it. My last blog post for a full week. I leave you with some suggestions/ideas for reading older blog posts, some of which are perhaps under-viewed blog articles:
The Tweet Up Event at the Headquarters - Photos from the Starbucks monthly roasting event are always fun.
Deconstructing the Starbucks experience into three pieces - Feel free to disagree with me, but I identify three components to the successful "Starbucks experience."
Fourteen Starbucks t-shirts tell their stories - This is a treasure of a blog post. I am forever in debt to the partner who, quite out of the blue, sent me her collection of promo t-shirts.
Starbucks tests "Refreshers" in San Diego - It looks like these are not going to ever launch, but they were so delicious! Quite an innovation to use green, unroasted coffee, in a tea-like beverage.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
