Now Is Your Chance To Get A Free Reusable Red Cup From Starbucks

Starbucks has been getting us ready for the fall and winter holidays ever since August, when it released its popular Pumpkin Spice Latte and Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew (via People). Then, on November 4, things at Starbucks started to get all red-and-green festive with its lineup of holiday drinks, per the coffee chain's Stories page, and four new holiday to-go cups (via Delish). Those holiday cups are nice enough, but why go disposable when you can get a reusable Starbucks cup — for free, no less?

On Thursday, November 18, Starbucks puts a bow on the holiday season by giving away reusable cups for that one day only, per a Starbucks press release. The cup is decorated with the famous green Starbucks mermaid logo on a red background, festooned with white ribbons and stars.

To get the free cup, order one of the chain's holiday beverages on November 18, either inside a participating cafe, via mobile order and pickup, or through Uber Eats.

Free Starbucks reusable cups are available Thursday, November 18 only

If you're really keen on becoming the owner of a reusable Starbucks holiday cup, it would help to know which beverage orders will qualify you for the freebie. The list isn't short, and it includes everything from those Pumpkin Spice Lattes, still going strong since August, to the new-this-year Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte, per the Starbucks press release. Also included on the holiday drink list are the Apple Crisp Macchiato, Caramel Brulee Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Hot Chocolate, Irish Cream Cold Brew, Peppermint Hot Chocolate, Peppermint Mocha, Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew, Toasted White Hot Chocolate, and Toasted White Chocolate Mocha. Getting a drip coffee doesn't cut it; ordering a Christmas Blend brewed coffee or a cup of Christmas Starbucks Reserve won't get you the free cup.

An important reminder: The free Starbucks reusable cup is only available on November 18 and only while supplies last. After that initial purchase, you can bring that cup (or any reusable cup) back to Starbucks for a 10 cent discount on your beverage purchase — part of Starbucks' effort to reduce its waste 50 percent by 2030.
