Everybody is all about convenience recently.  I don't know if that is a huge change, but it's definitely been a subject that has been more of a focus of almost everything.  From retail shopping, to food to tickets for events and more.

Now, Target is making things even easier than they were before... that is, if you are a fan of Starbucks.

Starbucks has been available in Target stores for quite some time.  And they are generally located very near the entrance/exit.  So, it is pretty convenient.  But now, they are making it even more convenient, especially if you are someone who shops Target online and uses the drive up feature to pick up their items.  Target is now rolling out the new feature to order Starbucks along with your other items you get there using the drive up services.

The ability to add a Starbucks menu item to a Drive Up order was Target guests' most-requested feature. Target worked with Starbucks in the development of the experience and then piloted the Drive Up with Starbucks service in 2022 and 2023 with the help of team members at select stores.

So now, ordering Starbucks with your regular shopping may be an option if you don't want to go inside the door and wait in line to order your frappaccino or whatever else you may like.

The Drive Up with Starbucks national rollout comes on the heels of another recent enhancement to the Drive Up service: the ability to make a product return free of charge. Returns with Drive Up launched at Target stores across the U.S. this summer. 

I personally find it easier to just go inside the door and order my Starbucks... but I also don't have any sort of complicated order.  I feel like if you are one of those people who likes really specific specialty drinks you may want to just go inside.  But that's just my opinion.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
