How Does Starbucks' Frappuccino Happy Hour Work?

When I'm craving a Frappuccino, I will do whatever it takes to get my hands on my favorite blended creme beverage — and because Starbucks seems to understand me even better than I understand myself sometimes, it's making my life even easier by reintroducing its Frappuccino Happy Hour. How does the Starbucks Frappuccino Happy Hour work, you may be wondering? It's so easy, you're going to be wishing this deal was around, permanently.

Starting May 3 (that's today, for those of you keeping track), and ending May 15, head into your nearest Starbucks between the hours of 3 p.m. and 5 p.m., order up your favorite Frappuccino in any size, and receive half off. Yup, it's that simple. The coffee gods have heard your Frappuccino-loving prayers, and they've blessed you with an answer. It doesn't matter what kind of Frappuccino you order, or what size — all you have to do is order one, and the deal applies to you. Honestly, the toughest part is figuring out what kind of Frappuccino to get.

Luckily, Starbucks is here to help with that dilemma, too. May 3 also just so happens to be the launch date of the brand new Caramel Waffle Cone Frappuccino, a drink that combines dark caramel sauce and waffle cone syrup for the ultimate throwback to your favorite boardwalk dessert. If you haven't tried it yet, now is definitely the time. The new Frapp runs between $4.25 and $4.95 for a tall (the price varies by market), meaning you can get your hands on it for less than $2.50 if you go between the hours of 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. Score.

Starbucks has been killing the Frappuccino game, lately. Earlier this spring, it brought back its S'mores Frappuccino in all its marshmallow whipped cream glory, and for a beautiful yet brief five days let us revisit the Birthday Cake Frappuccino. It's also taking over Twitter with its never-ending Frapp party — use the hashtag #FrappuccinoHappyHour, and watch as a mini Frappuccino icon magically appears in your tweet.

Summer will be here soon, meaning Frappuccino season is upon us in all its glory. Get a head start with a half-off Frappuccino, thank the universe for this beautiful life that you live, and then order up another one. I mean, you might as well, right?
