Every year, before we can even think about untangling the holiday lights, Starbucks releases their cheerful holiday cups. And, we're almost instantly we're rehearsing our carols. When it comes to Starbucks coffee, it's never too early to get in the holiday spirit. If you're wondering how to get free Starbucks with their holiday BOGO promotion, it starts with understanding the essence of the season. Which is to pretty much treat everyone that crosses your path like they're your bestie.
First of all, it's never too early to get yourself on the nice list. Kindness is a year round act and spreading joy is not a job description reserved only for elves. Every day of the year is an opportunity to bring something positive to a person who either really needs it or just isn't expecting it or whose positivity is slowly beginning to shrink under the weight of headlines. It's the string of little things that can make the greatest difference. Starbucks' Give Good campaign has this in mind and is one way to contribute good to the world. With their beloved and much anticipated holiday edition menu additions, you'll have something good to spread. I mean, it will actually taste good but on a deeper level, it will be something of positive substance to give to someone else.
The best part about this promotion is that when you buy one Starbucks holiday drink, as let's be real you'll be doing on the daily, you'll get one holiday drink for free. To give to anyone. To even just leave on someone's stoop. With a note on it of course, explaining the whole ordeal. You'll be able to warm someone's chilly morning with a Caramel Brulee Latté. How cool is that? The coffee will be dressed in their totally customizable holiday cups, like a drawing book but better, so you're licensed to take total creative freedom. Or, you can give somebody else the joy of coloring. You guys, the giving just gets deeper.
You won't only be providing coffee, coloring in the customizable holiday cups is essentially art therapy. And art therapy, as reported by Medical Daily, has been proven to help increase comfort in people dealing with conditions such as depression, anxiety and PTSD. And of course, if you're just having a day, there's no harm in giving yourself a second helping. Self-help is crucial. If that means giving yourself a free coffee, here's your opportunity.
These are the details: Starbucks will be kicking off spreading joy and all things that are good on Nov. 9. The promotion will run from Nov. 9 until Nov. 13 from 2 to 5 p.m. local time. When you buy one of their holiday drinks, you'll get one for free to share. Really all you have to do to get a free holiday drink from Starbucks is to order a holiday drink, as you normally would.
What can you fill your grande sized coloring cup with? I'm glad you asked! There are your seasonal favorite like Holiday Spice Flat White, Caramel Brulée Latté, Peppermint Mocha, Eggnog Latté, Chestnut Praline Latté, and the Gingerbread Latté. Sure, you might not have even reserved your turkey for Thanksgiving yet, but, it is never too early to get your fix of holiday flavorings. One taste of a Gingerbread Latté will make your heart and someone else's grow three sizes, even if you've been feeling like a Grinch in 2017.
This year's holiday cups were even designed with giving in mind. Starbucks Creative Studio illustrator Jordan Kay says, "I liked the idea of hands as the centering point, a symbol of connection, love and giving joy." Now's the time to get in the spirit of compassion and spreading kindness. Starbucks is just here to let us know that it can be as easy as sharing a cup of coffee.
