Starbucks free Red Cup Day: How it works and what is the cost


Starbucks' Red Cup Day returns for the sixth year, marking the start of the holiday season.

On Nov 16, customers can get a free reusable red cup by ordering any handcrafted holiday drink.

The free cups are available in-store, at drive-thru, and on the app and through Starbucks Delivery.

While supplies last, qualifying beverages include holiday favorites and fall drinks like Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Reusable cups will be given separately, with drinks served in regular disposable cups at most locations.

Starbucks' free cup is now made with 75% recycled material, up from 50% last year.

Starbucks Rewards members using reusable cups on Red Cup Day receive a 10-cent discount and 25 bonus stars.

Starbucks saw a 12% revenue growth in 2023, totaling $36 billion, compared to the previous year.
