This free Starbucks card from them is another example of what a great company they are. Between myself and my wife and my 3 kids, and with various IRA accts and custodial accts, we have a large number of Starbucks shares spread between 8 different accounts. On all but one of the accounts, we've signed up for electronic delivery of their proxies, year end reports, etc. When we got the year end report and the Starbucks card for the one account that doesn't have electronic delivery, it reminded me to call & find out about getting the cards for the other 7 accounts. They barely asked me any questions when I called them, but they did thank me very much for enrolling in their electronic delivery as it helps them promote their corporate social responsibility of minimizing their environmental impact. Sure enough about 10 days later, a large envelope arrived with 7 more Starbucks cards in it!!

This is a great company and I hope to hold their shares for a long time.
