Last week, I got a message that Starbucks would be giving out reusable cups when you got your drink, but, I was warned, you had to get there early. Even though you get $0.50 off each holiday drink when you go in, I decided that it wasn’t worth the effort to get up early. I ended up going at around 3pm. Turns out that you only got them with a holiday drink, and only until supplies lasted. They still hadn’t opened the last box when I was there.
So, now I am the proud owner of a reusable Starbucks cup. I can only get holiday drinks in it, and only get the discount when I walk in. Not when I pre order or go through the drive thru. So, whenever I wander in for holiday drinks, and I have a clean cup in my car, I’ll get the discount. I have a feeling it isn’t going to happen often.
