With the cost of student loans rising, it is almost second nature for you to instantly gravitate towards the idea of having a bowl of ramen for dinner (again). After all, you do need to head to the bookstore tomorrow to spend at least $100 again on textbooks.

Ah, caffeine. The fuel that gets most college students throughout the day. It is safe to say the Starbucks app should be a staple on your phone.
