My uncle used to say to us when we were kids, “Remember, don’t take no wooden nickels because you can’t spend them!” It was his trademark “goodbye.”
Starbucks is offering a “limited edition” birch wood collectible gift card. This card is harvested from sustainably managed forests. I actually bought two. One for myself and one for a gift. Not sure how sturdy the cards actually are or how good they are for ‘swiping,’ so I only loaded five bucks on each. I bought them for the keepsake value more than anything else.
I can truthfully say while it’s not a nickel, it’s actually wood that I can spend!
