What Is Starbucks Frappuccino Happy Hour? Here's Everything You Need To Know About This Coffee-Filled Event

Happy Hour is an understatement. It's more like This-Is-The-Most-Amazing-Thing-Ever-Especially-After-A-Bad-Day-At-Work Hour. But now, instead of hitting up your favorite bar for a Bloody Mary and maybe some dollar chicken wings, you can stop at your local Starbucks, too. What is Starbucks Frappuccino Happy Hour? Basically it's everything you've ever wanted in a summertime post-work excursion, so here's everything you need to know about it.

Everyone's favorite coffee giant offers an extensive array of the flavor-packed blended drinks, both in terms of seasonal offerings and permanent menu items. Whether you're craving something fruity (try the Strawberries & Creme), something to better satisfy the chocoholic in you (go for the Double Chocolaty Chip Creme Frapp), or something perfect to kick off the summer (hello, Caramel Waffle Cone Frapp and S'mores Frapp), Starbucks undoubtedly has something for you. And this latest news of Frappuccino Happy Hour kind of feels like the Starbucks Fairy stopped by with a special surprise. Frapps are already delicious, but half-off Frapps? I almost can't handle it.

No matter what you're in the mood for, you should most definitely head to your local Starbucks store and take advantage of this limited-time offer. Who can say no to a Frapp for just a couple of bucks?! Here are the must-know details.

What Is Frappuccino Happy Hour?

Frappuccino Happy Hour is basically Christmas and your birthday rolled into one. It's that first day after Valentine's Day when you go back to the store and all of the candy is marked down. Visit Starbucks and receive half off any Frapp of any flavor and any size.

When Is It?

Frappy Hour (like what I did there?) starts today, May 3, and will run through May 15. Partake in the discounted Frapps from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at any of your local participating Starbucks locations, both in the United States and Canada. If you're a Starbucks Rewards members, it's your lucky day, because you get an extra hour and can enjoy the half-off Frapps until 6:00 p.m.

What To Order

As I mentioned before, Happy Hour applies to any Frapp order; however, if you're looking for some inspiration, here are just a few ideas that will make your tastebuds do the cha-cha: Today officially marks the start of the summertime with the Caramel Waffle Cone Frappuccino, making Sbux lovers everywhere shed a tear of joy; the S'mores Frapp is here to take you back to go your good ol' campfire days; and the Green Tea Creme Frapp is an excellent choice any day of the week. Seriously, people, you can't go wrong.
