I don’t know how the winds were in the hills, but they were pretty tame where we live. We probably won’t unpack for a couple of days, just in case, but I have retrieved some of the candy already!
It was a beautiful afternoon, so I decided to take a walk. I had a small balance left on my Starbucks card and I wanted something sweet, so I used their app to order a small Frappuccino and walked over there to pick it up. There were a LOT more people in the store than I expected – I grabbed mine and left as quickly as I could.
I’d made one mistake, though – I hadn’t checked to make sure that autoload was turned off on my card. So, instead of reducing my balance, I added to it!
Starbucks Customer Service said they couldn’t reverse the transaction, but they could send me a check for the amount of the autoload. I’ve turned autoload off for sure now, and I found out how to get the balance on the card refunded when I bring it below $10…which will require yet another trip to Starbucks. But it won’t be anytime soon.
