Dad's Math: Starbucks Gold Card


Sometimes it proves very helpful that my dad is an accountant. Here's his take on the Starbucks Gold Card:

Break even on the card is $4.81 purchases average per week.

Pay:
$25.00

Purchases:
$4.81 times 52 weeks in a year equals $250.12 purchases per year.
$250.12 times 10 percent equals $25.01 savings

So.... if you think you will buy $250 or more at Starbucks in a year ($4.81 average per week) the Starbucks Gold Card is for you. :)


Brother Matt's comment: "Already got one! $4.80 per week is chump change."

Ezra and I limit ourselves to one starbucks a week on our way to church... We did the math, two drinks a week with the gold card would save us money! We still need to buy our gold though. =)

Bek, you are so disciplined! But it's pretty amazing that just two drinks a week pays for this card.

I've always wanted math as my super-power.
