    I have to go with other - in particular, just general mom and pop shops that enjoy the product they provide the consumers...

    What kind of drinks? That's kind of open-ended...

    I would have said Starbucks only because I have a rewards card, but I just closed that account. So really, it depends what I'm looking for...

    Well - I was talking about any of the coffe drinks, gourmet sodas, etc. Though I have a liking of Frappucinos - not much else does it for me there...

    and you closed a rewards card? aren't those free - or was this a "credit card with rewards"?

    I like their mocha... my wife likes their signature hot chocolate.

    I closed it because otherwise they were going to do it for me... based on a credit review, apparently...

    If I did like Starbucks at all, I would be very fortunate to live where I do: all the jokes about Starbucks across from Starbucks and Starbucks next to Starbucks and such seem to be based on my entire county. I guess that's not surprising, because they're based in Seattle. But we also have an abundance of other coffee joints too. Coffee is basically the religion here. I feel left out, really, but I can't even stand the smell of the stuff. Oh well.

    I guess that's an other?

    Gotcha... I was thinking it was just a free rewards card and not something something tied to actual credit lines...


    Their hot chocolate was ok - seemed too rich for me...
