Starbucks Red Cup Day is Here

Starbucks, the Seattle-based coffee chain is giving away free reusable red cups this Thursday to customers.

Red Cup Day, which means international coffee giant, Starbucks will be giving away free, usable holiday cups to customers who order a holiday or fall beverage at participating stores.

Starbucks released its holiday menu including the new Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte and favorites like the Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulee Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte and Irish Cream Cold Brew which are all part of Red Cup Day.
