Like most people, I enjoy buying hot drinks from coffee shops.
However, recently, I have been trying to cut down on the amount of money I am spending on a daily basis.
In an average coffee shop, a medium latte costs around £2.75 which on its own doesn’t seem that expensive.
However, if you buy one latte every day for a year, then it all adds up to an amount that I can’t figure out right now because maths is hard – but it’s probably quite a lot.
Therefore, in an attempt to save a bit of money in coffee shops, I have started using loyalty cards.
Every time I go into a coffee shop and buy a drink, I get a stamp on my loyalty card and, once I have collected six stamps, I am allowed a free coffee as a reward for my unwavering dedication.
I have been using loyalty cards for a while now and have figured out a way to ensure that I am using them as effectively as possible.
Unfortunately, I am getting slightly addicted to the feeling of satisfaction and achievement that completing a loyalty card induces.
As a result, I am probably going to coffee shops more often than I would have previously.
Sometimes, I have several loyalty cards for various different coffee shops on the go at once which I’m pretty sure completely undermines the concept of loyalty.
Therefore, although saving £3.45 on an extra large mint hot chocolate with marshmallows makes me feel like a savvy supersaver, the fact that I have previously spent just under £5 on overpriced tea in order to obtain it probably suggests otherwise.
