If you’re someone who gets excited about Starbucks and/or seasonal hot beverages, then you probably already know that today, the coffee chain is starting to serve this year’s crop of holiday drinks, and if you order one today you’ll get a free reusable cup. For everyone else, now you know. Here’s what to know about this (semi) freebie.
Can you ever really have too many to-go receptacles for hot and cold beverages? (Well, now that a lot of people are no longer commuting, maybe, but let’s skip that for now.) If you’d like another one—and a holiday (nonalcoholic) drink—to go with it, you may want to make a trip to your local Starbucks today. For today only (Friday, November 6, apparently, but it’s all a blur), if you order any size of one of their holiday concoctions you can get one of their reusable travel mugs for free in the U.S. and Canada (and while supplies last).
The drinks can be ordered hot, iced, or blended as a Frappuccino, and include: Caramel Brulee Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Eggnog Latte, Hot Chocolate, Peppermint Hot Chocolate, Peppermint Mocha, Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew, Pumpkin Cream Nitro Cold Brew, Pumpkin Spice Latte, Salted Caramel Cream Cold Brew, Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate, Salted Caramel Mocha, and Toasted White Chocolate Mocha.
And in case you’re interested, this year’s class of seasonal holiday snacks include: Cranberry Orange Scone, Cranberry Bliss Bar, Sugar Plum Cheese Danish, Snowman Cookie, and Snowman Cake Pop. If you’re off sugar, it’s best to just walk on by.
In far as freebies go, this one isn’t the free-est because you do need to buy a beverage to get the cup, but if you were going to try one anyway, might as well make it today. Plus, after the week we’ve had, I think most people could probably use some caffeine right now.
