Speaking of cute, getting your morning coffee from Starbucks (a coffee
company, for those who have been living in the Sudan for the
last 10 years – Ed.) is sometimes made easier by using a gift

Well, it seems Starbucks has designed a special one for
sale only in Hawai’i (see image below and story from the

auctioning them on E-bay and making a pretty good living at
While I am certainly no expert in collecting gift cards,
this one does look pretty nice. Maybe I’ll go and get one the
next time I’m in the area (how can you miss running into a
Starbucks, they’re everywhere – Ed.).
