Love Starbucks reusable cups?! 😍

In addition to their legendary drinks and yummy bakery treats, Starbucks’ ever-changing assortment of trendy reusable cups is just one more reason why so many people love to visit their local cafés.

If you’re a fan of Starbucks reusable cups, you’ll definitely want to be on the lookout for some beautiful new styles, which are now available nationwide as part of the company’s May 11 merchandise release.

While there are lots of summery new styles to choose from, we can’t stop thinking about that shimmery gradient tumbler shown above. It has a definite mermaid/cotton candy/unicorn kind of vibe, and the thought of sipping our favorite drinks from one of these gorgeous vessels all summer is an instant mood-booster!

The kind of joy that a shiny new 24-ounce tumbler from Starbucks can provide doesn’t come cheap, though. This pretty little thing is going to cost you a whopping $28.95! But hey – you’ll score a 10¢ discount when you use your Starbucks reusable cup in-store, so drink up! 😉

Note that due to the Coronavirus, some Starbucks stores may not use your reusable cup – but they will still honor the 10¢ discount. Please check with your local Starbucks location for more details.

Keep in mind that Starbucks Limited Edition cups tend to sell out quickly. While our store was well-stocked this morning, you may want to head out as soon as possible if you’re hoping to score something from this new line for yourself or for a Starbucks-loving friend!

    No, really not worth the price.

    • LaToya

      Pretty – but not 30 bucks pretty – lol

      • Urvi

        Second that!

  2. Margaux

    They’re probably already listed on eBay for $100+ 🙄

  3. queen62

    Not unless it comes with free beverages for the year. Overpriced

  4. Family First

    I actually like to see my Starbucks drink in the traditional clear cups. Isn’t that part of the cost, to see the artfully crafted drink? Honestly, I don’t think refilling the reusable cups is ever sanitary 🤷‍♀️

    • Brittany

      Wouldn’t that be saying refilling the cups in your cupboard isn’t sanitary?

  5. Megan

    Not worth $30. Starbucks calls them “limited edition” to hype them up and raise the price; meanwhile they’ll just create new ones in a few months and then call those “limited edition”. The cycle never ends.

  7. Allison

    Their cups aren’t well insulated so nothing stays hot/cold for long, and their lids are like the stupid new plastic water bottle lids—too thin to grip to get off! Makes me angry every time my husband uses one lol. Definitely not worth the price unless there’s some other incentive involved (free/reduced beverages for a time period)

  8. Suzanne H

    Nope but then I don’t pay for anything at Starbucks!

  9. misty

    yes and yes!!! Already picked one up!

  10. jessie

    I love Starbucks travel cups. Thanks for posting their new cups. They look like summer to me.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      They sure do! You’re welcome!

  11. rerun4u2

    Bo: I like swig cups

  12. 0lie

    Can you use stars to get one of these?

    • atank

      400 stars will get you a cup worth $20 some stores will let you pay the difference but wont let you use more than 400 stars in my experience

  13. A.B.

    I think they’re lovely, and I always admire them when I see gals at work using them, but for me, I would not pay full price for one. I typically drink out of a mason jar! 😋

  14. Pattyd

    Nope. Do not support Starbucks

    • jessie

      More coffee for me! ☕️

    • Sue

      Same here, I quite going to Starbucks years ago. I prefer Organic coffee without pesticides.

    • Margaret Gordon

      You came here to comment that? Why?

      • faithanne

        Because hip asked the question 😆

  15. Marie

    No. Boycotting Starbucks.

  16. Roxy

    NAH. I like the studded design, this square one just does not interest me. Give me another iridescent studded cup, or a matte one

    • Debbie

      I like the studded too. This new design reminds me of a waffle cone for some reason. Looks cheap. Bring back the studded!

  17. Mimi1121

    Absolutely not

  18. NubianGoddess

    No. No, I would not.

  19. gentledogwalker

    Nope. I still have at least six Starbucks Tumblr’s that I don’t use anymore because I don’t work anymore so I don’t have a travel mug in the car like I used to for 10 years

  20. Jessi

    To each their own! I love the cup! I rarely go to starbucks but hate disposable cups and bottles so I’d get this just to drink water…it’s so pretty 🙂 I doubt I’ll be lucky enough to find one but I’ll try! Thanks for the post

  21. Diana

    Yes! Bought 10 different styles today. I collect starbucks mugs 😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃

    • Kate+4

      Really? You spent $400 on Starbucks’s cups? That’s more than I spend on my car payment and groceries combined in a month!

      • Holly

        And Diana is allowed to spend her money on whatever she wants. Isn’t life great?

        • Simplegurl77

          Yessss, Holly!!!! I thought the same thing!

      • riss

        Her money. She can spend it on whatever.

      • shop4mybabies

        wow.i have 4 kids and a hub and a cat nad a dog and i spend at least 500 a week on groceries/household products. car payment is 425 for an inexpensive car. not sure how you’re living on 400 a month for the two…cups aren’t my thing, but I sure do buy every lego set I want, and funko pop and loungefly backpack for my kiddos because part of life is enjoying it.

    • Sarah

      What a pretty addition to your collection Diana! I hope you enjoy it😊

  22. Kate+4

    Stuff like THIS is why our country & many others are SO in debt. I bet the ppl @ Starbucks laugh at consumers all day long. “Let’s make this one with some iridescent film that costs us $.01 to put on & up charge it to $40! Wait…. I am being greedy…. make it affordable at $38 & slap a limited edition sticker on there. They will fly!” But then I am super frugal with my money so I might be being overly harsh.

  23. Simplegurl77

    Only 19.95 in U.S. stores… My daughter got it for 14.80 with her discount. The lady in front of me bought like 6.

    • Diana

      Right. Not sure why post says $28.95.. they are $19.99

  24. Sue S


  25. Sandy

    I would not. But, if it makes other people happy, and they enjoy the cups, they should definitely buy them! We need more happy people!!

    • Veronica


  26. Sarah

    I bought one of these tumblers a few years ago. It was a pretty sequin rose gold ombré. It was a splurge for me but I bought it when I had my last baby for in the hospital. I wanted something fancy that would still be useful. I use it almost every day still!! So worth it to me!

  27. riss

    If it was $5, maybe. However, we collect (my husband, to be specific) the Starbucks ceramic mugs from travels outside the country.

  28. Boy.Mommy3

    Very pretty but heck no I would not, not for myself at least. I would buy one as a gift for a Starbucks lover though, maybe 🤷‍♀️

  29. Albert B

    NO! And if it was made in CHINA, I wouldn’t pay 1 cent for it.

  30. Claudia

    If you drop these do they shatter? I am referring to the studded ones.

  31. Erin

    Better than paying $60 when they are all gone and you really want one. I am hoping I can get my hands on the shimmering cold cup.

  32. Amanda

    I use my starbucks rewards and get the tumblers for free! If the tumbler is more than $20 you just pay the difference.

  33. Jessica

    They’re only 19.99 in America 🙂 I got one because they’re cute and I love the texture. It’s not horribly unreasonable for us 🙂

  34. Jess

    I’d never pay the price they charge for them BUT I had been saving up my stars for months and just happened to walk into my Starbucks on the day of the release and was able to get the bubble coral reef tumbler for free with my stars! I LOVE it. So cute and gets me excited for summer 🙂

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      How cool! I save my stars for cups, too!

  35. Jessi

    I was so excited to find one at the Starbucks inside Von’s today! It’s so cute!

  36. Alisha Madariaga

    The cups sold in Asia are DEFINITELY worth it.. The US does NOT even remotely get the best of the cups that are out there.. some we do, but generally speaking, we don’t get the really awesome ones. The original Seattle location is some pretty cool
    Cups as well.. but they are sold exclusively at that locations
