How to get free Starbucks for life

Starbucks barista Brad Halsey just leaked the most epic Starbucks hack ever, claiming that a genius customer found a way to get a free, delicious Starbucks drink every day of the year. We're very excited.

According to Business Insider, this genius consumer's tactic is actually quite simple. Here's the secret. You buy 365 Starbucks cards, register each card for a different birthday, and use the Starbucks app to get your free birthday drink every day. Why didn't we think of this first? It's genius!

For Halsey, however, the hack is pretty frustrating. He sent an email to the website Kitchenette for their “Horrible Restaurant Customers” series, describing how the guy managed to hack the system. Halsey wrote that the man is trying to cover up the fact that he bought a Starbucks card for every day of the year. He wrote:

“Even though I know exactly how he 'tricked' the system there, he acts as if his app just doesn't work and as if by magic he gets the same free birthday drink every day.”

Not only does this customer get a free drink every day, but he's also extremely precise with his order. This makes cheating the system about ten times more annoying for Halsey than it already was. While we sympathize with Halsey, we're also keen to try this hack because let's be honest: Free Starbucks every day would be a dream.

While the hack would cost us $365 for a while, if we use the gift cards every day to buy large drinks for $2.25, we can save over $450 a year! And that's just if we buy the smallest size. Sounds like a pretty good deal to us!
