Yes, you heard it right. Beginning with Thursday, November 17 and lasting until November 20 (from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.), Starbucks is inviting all fans, customers and coffee lovers to bring a friend and receive a free holiday beverage of equal or lesser value when purchasing another holiday beverage of choice. Customers are invited to enjoy some of the popular and special holiday beverages such as Peppermint Mocha, Gingerbread Latte, Eggnog Latte, Caramel Brulée Latte and the brand-new Skinny Peppermint Mocha:

  • Skinny Peppermint Mocha – Fans of Starbucks classic seasonal beverage can enjoy a lighter interpretation of their favorite holiday treat. Prepared with sugar-free peppermint syrup and skinny mocha sauce, the new Skinny Peppermint Mocha is just 110 calories for a Tall (12 fl oz.).
  • Peppermint Mocha – A seasonal favorite featuring a combination of espresso with bittersweet chocolate, peppermint syrup and steamed milk, topped by whipped cream and chocolate curls.
  • Gingerbread Latte – This ever popular beverage blends the flavor of freshly baked gingerbread, with espresso and steamed milk, topped by whipped cream and ground nutmeg.
  • Caramel Brulée Latte – A holiday delight, this beverage features a combination of rich caramel sauces, espresso and steamed milk and is topped with whipped cream and caramel pieces.
  • Eggnog Latte – Starbucks wildly popular interpretation of holiday eggnog features rich espresso with subtle holiday spices, making it a perfect choice for a crisp fall or winter day.

Why is Starbucks doing this? They think that holidays are all about enjoying celebrated traditions with the loved ones, so they decided to join in the spirit of sharing and celebrating with this limited-time offer.

The catch? You have to be in U.S. or Canada to enjoy this tasty offer. Sorry Europeans, looks like holiday spirit cannot cross the Atlantic for business reasons. Better luck next time.
