What’s better than your mid-afternoon pick-me-up from Starbucks? How about getting that pick-me-up for less money? Yeah, that’s right, people — Starbucks Happy Hour is back, so get ready to save some serious bucks.

Beginning Thursday, March 29th, participating Starbucks locations across the U.S. and Canada will offer money-saving deals on select espresso, iced tea, and frappuccino beverages for customers who are digitally connected to Starbucks. And to celebrate the Happy Hour kick-off, Starbucks is offering 50% off any espresso beverage from 3 p.m. to closing time, to customers who sign up online to receive an invitation.

Those of you who are part of the Starbucks Rewards program are already on the guest list. Just tell your barista you’d like to redeem your reward and show them the ring code on your app or email before you order.

For those of you who aren’t part of the Rewards program, that’s no problem. Head over to to sign up and grab an invite while they’re hot.

Plus, if you opt to provide Starbucks with your email address, or sign up via the Starbucks app, you’ll be notified about upcoming Happy Hour deals in the future. If you live for a good money-saving opportunity, we highly recommend you get on this — pronto.

Starbucks brought back Happy Hour to strengthen their digital relationship with customers beyond the Rewards program.

Happy Hour is a great way of doing just that. Thank you, Matt and the Starbucks team. This actually means more to us than you even know!

Sign up for Starbucks Happy Hour invites and reap the rewards beginning on March 29th. All of the sudden, that mid-afternoon slump became a lot more exciting.
