Starbucks offers $1,000 gift card to any U.S. customer

Starbucks is offering a $1.00 gift card for any U.” customer in the U.K., the company announced Tuesday.

The offer comes as the coffee giant is trying to woo Americans to its stores in order to lure back customers who have left for other places, particularly in the past year.

Last month, Starbucks posted an 11% jump in sales as the company struggled to attract customers who had left the U.-based chain over concerns over its health-care coverage and its business practices.

In October, Starbucks’ shares plunged more than 10% after a study showed the chain’s employee health care benefits were inadequate.

Shares of the company rose nearly 2% in after-hours trading on the news.
