Here’s how you can get a free drink from Starbucks this week, because we know you need it

If your particular brand of happiness comes daily in the form of a 12 oz. cuppa joe, prepare to be extra joyful for the next few days. As part of its 10 Days of Cheer promotion, Starbucks is offering free drinks in select cities every day for the next week and a half.


Between 1 and 2 p.m. local time, you’ll be able to get a 12 oz. handcrafted espresso beverage for absolutely zero dollars at participating locations’ Pop-Up Cheer Parties. (This is exactly the kind of holiday party we’ve been looking forward to, tbh.)

The company says the location of these ~magical~ events will change every day, so you should check here to see when your local Starbucks is playing host.

The best part about this cheerful offer is that you won’t be limited simply to lattes and Americanos. No indeed, dear coffee enthusiasts. During the 10 Days of Cheer you will be able to satisfy your inner Lorelai Gilmore with no-charge mochas, flat whites, Chestnut Praline Lattes, and more — much like our favorite Gilmore girl and her seemingly always free coffees at Luke’s Diner.

If you miss the Pop-Up Cheer Parties, though, no worries. You can also stop by your local participating Starbucks and pick up a Cheer Card that will get you a special offer, such as 50% off a Spiced Sweet Cream Cold Brew or Holiday Spice Flat White beverage, or 50% off any lunch item (sandwiches, salads, or bistro boxes), or a free holiday cookie or Cranberry Bliss Bar with the purchase of a handcrafted beverage (any size).

Now it’s really the most wonderful time of the year.
