How to get your free 2021 reusable red holiday cup at Starbucks on Nov. 18


Let the fa la la continue! Starbucks beloved holiday beverages are back, along with seasonal food, merchandise and the new Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte. To keep the cheer going, Starbucks is offering a free limited-edition reusable red cup on Nov. 18 to customers who order a handcrafted holiday or fall beverage at participating U.S. stores. Quantities are limited, while supplies last. The red cup giveaway is available however you order, including mobile order and pickup, curbside pickup and through delivery on Uber Eats.*

“As we build on our strong start to the holiday season, we’re delighted to bring back our reusable red cup giveaway for the fourth straight year,” said Brady Brewer, chief marketing officer for Starbucks. “The reusable red cup has become a tradition for customers each holiday season and is a step towards reducing single-use cup waste as we work towards our planet-positive goals.”

This year’s reusable cup honors Starbucks 50th anniversary and is made with 50 percent recycled content. Its gift-inspired design features Starbucks classic holiday red, with playful swirls of shimmering ribbon dancing against a starry sky.
