Your frappuccino looks cold so better get it a sweater! Starbucks has you and your drink covered. After critics accused the coffee kings of being ‘scrooges’ with their plain red cups, Starbucks is handing out free-mini ugly sweaters on Dec. 18. Learn how to score this early Christmas present!
Ugly Christmas sweaters are all the rage. Your favorite celebrities certainly love them — from Harry Styles, 21, to Katy Perry, 31, to Miley Cyrus, 23. Even your favorite coffee drink is wearing one. Or, it could be. Starbucks has decided to jump into the fashion world, making sure no frap goes naked during the holiday season!
To score a free Christmas-themed, cable knit sweater for your drink, you first need to go to a participating Starbucks on Dec. 18, reports Delish. That’s easy enough, right? The second step is to buy any frappuccino AND pay with your registered Starbucks Rewards card or the Starbucks app. On top of that, better ask the barista for the sweater — just in case!
This promotion is for Dec. 18 only and it’s only going on in the U.S. and Canada. Sorry, Europe. You won’t be able to score the cute red knit holiday Koozie/cozy, unless you have a Stateside Secret Santa. Get that coffee drinker in your life the ultimate Christmas present with the Starbucks Holiday Blend Coffee from Amazon.
For all those claiming that Starbucks was “scrooge-ing” out on the Christmas spirit, this holiday gift should get them back on the “Nice List.” When Starbucks announced that their holiday cups would be pure red this season — without any snowflakes or candy canes or the words “Merry Christmas” — many people, including Donald Trump, called for a boycott!
Dunkin’ Donuts was a little naughty when they released their holiday cup, showing how it was completely covered in everything the Starbucks cup lacked. And when Starbucks gave out free coffee, people still told them “Bah Humbug.” Thankfully, this Christmas sweater promotion should show Starbucks has the holiday spirit.
It hasn’t been a happy, wonderful Christmastime this year for Starbucks. On top of the red cup controversy, they were in hot water over their Polar Bear Christmas cookies. The jolly bears were supposed appear like they were wearing festive, red winter scarves. Instead, they looked like they had their throats slit. Yikes!
Thankfully, there’s no mistaking these ugly sweaters for anything naughty. So go get one, HollywoodLifers!
