If you are an AT&T wireless customer, head on over here to sign up for AT&T Alerts. It’s free to sign up, plus the first 20,000 people to sign up and confirm their registration and geolocation will receive a FREE $5 Starbucks Card eGift. Keep in mind that it did take quite awhile (at least a few hours) for me to receive each of the text messages back once I signed up.
Important Note: AT&T Alerts is not compatible with iPhone 5 or pre-paid phones.
Also, note that I first received a text message back asking me to text the word COFFEE to share my AT&T location. Then, after a couple of hours, I received another text back with an exclusive code and a link to click on to enter the code to score my FREE $5 Starbucks card! It appears that you can either opt to show the card on your mobile device at your local Starbucks, or enter the card and pin number at checkout if you want to order online.
