Nothing says “summer” quite like relaxing with a cup of cold brew—or iced tea, if you prefer. After all, it’s the perfect way to beat the heat and get a pick-me-up during an afternoon slump. And today, August 16th, you can indulge your cold brew obsession with a little less guilt. Because Starbucks is giving away iced drinks for Happy Hour.
Thrillist reports that after 3 p.m. today, you can head to your local ‘Bux for a buy one, get one free deal on iced drinks sized grande or larger. The deal includes iced espresso beverages, cold brew, Starbucks Refreshers, iced tea, and iced coffee (sadly, no Frappuccinos). And in even better news, you don’t have to get two of the same drink.
But before you race out to your nearest Sbux, you should know that there is one limitation. Since the deal is part of the coffee chain’s Happy Hour promotion, you have to be a Starbucks Rewards member to participate. If you do belong to the rewards program (or decide to sign up today), simply show your promo code at the register to enjoy your free iced drink. Today.com also notes that you can get the deal by signing into the app or free in-store Wi-Fi.
Today’s deal is the perfect opportunity to try Starbucks’ latest iced drinks.
Although Happy Hour was originally limited to Frappuccinos, Starbucks announced in March that it’s working to expand the now invitation-only program to offer more beverages.
Today’s Happy Hour deal is already making Thursday a little more chill.
