Ocho stews over loss of gold card

 

New England Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco said he was "not trippin' " about losing his wallet, credit cards, license and iPod when someone broke into his SUV Wednesday, but was inconsolable about his Starbucks gold card being stolen as well.

Re: Ocho stews over loss of gold card

I think I would die if someone stole my iPod.  I'd be pretty sad about my Starbucks card, too!

Yeah  :smileysad:    Actually I have a Starbucks gold card too, honestly I didn't think it was a big deal until I saw this video :smileytongue:

 

Not like I have $200 stored on it though.....but now I'm going to make sure that I have the number written down somewhere just in case....

 

I guess it functions like a prepaid card, which makes me wonder if prepaid cards have any loss/theft protection for cases like this ??
