Nope, you aren’t dreaming…
This is a real thing! Right now at Starbucks, you can score FREE coffee every day in January when you purchase and use their exclusive travel tumbler. While the reusable 16oz. tumbler is gorgeous, it rings in at $40, a bit more than your standard travel coffee mug. That said, this cup grants you access to FREE coffee or tea each day in January — that’s 31 days of free caffeine!
In my area, the cost of a grande blonde roast (my go-to order) with tax is $2.66, so if I were to get one every day in January, my coffee expense would be $82.46. That said, with the tumbler purchase of $40, I would actually be saving $42.46 on those daily coffees, making my per coffee cost only $1.29. If I didn’t want to go every day, I would only need to get about 15 coffees to make the tumbler purchase worth it. Oh, and let’s not forget that I’ll have the cool travel cup to add to my mug collection!
But the savings don’t stop there. If you’re a Starbucks rewards member, you get your first refill in the cafe for FREE, so long as you don’t leave the store before coming back to the counter for your refill. So, if you’re able to spend your morning in a Starbucks cafe, you could potentially get TWO FREE coffees a day with this tumbler! That’s double the savings, with the net cost of each coffee ringing in at only $0.64 — talk about a jolt of free caffeine!
Let me just say that I totally understand it’s not plausible for everyone to go to Starbucks EVERY day in January, but if you head in for your morning coffee on the regular (or at least every other day), this tumbler is worth it.
What do you think of the latest Starbuck promotion? Will you be purchasing this tumbler?
