FRECKLES' PICK - WINNER

Starbucks Is Closing Their Online Store

If you’ve been waiting to buy that double wall travel mug from Starbucks, now’s your chance. The chain is having a big sale right now at their online store, which means you can save on glasses, stainless steel bottles, and coffee presses. The downside is that Starbucks is officially closing their Internet store forever on October 1, Business Insiderreports.

"We're continuing to invest in amplifying Starbucks as a must-visit destination,” explains Starbucks spokesperson Maggie Jantzen, “and are looking across our portfolio to make disciplined, thoughtful decisions.”

So we’ll have to head to a Starbucks store to get those cute mugs and espresso makers they sell online now, or shop at third-party sellers like Amazon. But for now, we can take advantage of the discounts on merch in their web store, like this adorable set of three Starbucks cup ornaments, which is now only $7.

JASON'S PICK 

Jason Threw Away Over $3,000 By Accident While On Vacation

Jason was on vacation in Las Vegas during the big fight and decided to bet on in. He put $2200 that the fight would go less than 9 1/2 rounds. The fight ended up going into the 10th round. Since he thought he lost he tore up his ticket and didn't think twice about it until he got home. In talking to one of his neighbors he realized he had actually won by 25 seconds. The fight did go into the 10th round but was stopped short of making in halfway though, meaning it went less then 9 1/2 rounds. Thankfully when putting in the bet, Jason used his players card at the hotel. When he called the hotel they were able to track his bet and see that he did in fact win. They are sending him a check for $3200.
