Starbucks: Buy 1 Get 1 Free

There is a sweet promotion starting today in participating Starbucks stores where you will get a free holiday drink when you buy one. This offer is valid from November 14th until November 17th only from 2 pm to 5 pm. I think this is a great promotion to launch their holiday drinks and it’s giving us a pretty good excuse to take a short break during the afternoon to go and get a coffee.

Here’s the list of the holiday drinks that you can get : Caramel Brulée Latte, Peppermint Mocha, Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha, Peppermint Hot Chocolate, Gingerbread Latte, Eggnog Latte, Caramel Brulée Frappucino blended beverage, Peppermint Mocha Frappucino blended beverage. To me all these seem really good. I think it will be a difficult choice ;).

With stores springing up all over the place now, be sure to locate the nearest Starbucks beforehand to you to see if there’s a closer one now!

Clear Grande TumblerStainless Steel Grande TumblerPersonally, I’m a huge fan of Starbucks’ clear plastic cold cups, which look just like the ones given in-stores but that are much sturdier. However, their new collection of stainless steels tumblers is particularly appealing as well, especially since: “the insulating double wall helps protect hands from condensation while helping to keep your coffee or summertime beverages cold longer“. The form of the cup also ensures ultimate comfort while holding the drink, which is as close to perfection as it could possibly get!

Whether you already have a favorite drink or you’re a Starbucks newbie, there’s definitely something for everyone. In fact, they have added a number of new drinks to their much loved menu, among which can be found the:

  • Valencia Orange Starbucks Refreshers;
  • Shaken Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade;
  • Orange Spice Iced Coffee.

Do Good, Get Good: Free Starbucks Coffee or Tea for Earth Day

Find out where your nearest Starbucks is with the handy store locator.

Speaking of which, though it makes sense to think that bold coffee has the most caffeine, did you know that it’s actually the opposite? Lighter brews hold the most caffeine as the longer beans are roasted, the more caffeine is lost.

So, when the Starbucks baristas ask: “what kind”, which will be your answer to this daily asked question?

Bring any re-usable cup and savor a free coffee or tea at participating Starbucks locations.

Starbucks Willow BlendMake your morning more pleasant with a cup of coffee that will not only awaken your mind but that will also tantalize your senses. Labelled as a blonde roast, the Willow Blend contains a higher caffeine level as its beans were roasted for a shorter time (dark roast means less caffeine).
For all those fans of the famous caramel macchiato, though we just recently wrote an article about how much money can be saved making this tasty drink at home with the help of a Verismo machine, there is an alternative way of making it using filtered coffee, which can be created with the same vanilla syrup used across all Starbucks locations.

Starbucks Cold Cup
With summer and hotter than hot temperatures coming up, you’re going to need a BPA-free and well-insulated cup to keep your iced beverages cold. The 16 oz cold cup is definitely worth the discounted price of $8.45, especially since it even includes the hard to lose green straw. Speaking of which, have you seen the holiday cold cup straws, already reduced to $1.99 and which fall down to an even lower $1.69 for a set of 3? That’s close to $0.50 for each reusable and authentic Starbucks straw!

Pay $2 for a Grande Cold Beverage after 2PM

Starbucks PromoStarbucks is running a great promotion at the moment and until the 5th of September where customers can get a grande (equivalent to a medium size for newbies ;) cold beverage for only $2 after 2pm. To enjoy this offer, you need to buy a beverage in the morning which will give you access to a ‘Treat receipt’ that you need to show up to the cashier later in the afternoon. If you’re starting to be tired of ice pops and ice cream, then Starbucks cold drinks could be a good alternative for something fresh in the afternoon.

With the crazy hot weather we have right now (it’s about 38 celsius degrees here in Montreal today), cold and iced beverages are necessary to our survival in town! Pools are also nice, but not everyone can afford one ;)
