Starbucks summer merch is here—and you get a discount when you use it

Starbucks new drinkware can save you money


It's looking like the summer of Starbucks. Each week, the beverage-based company releases something new to get their loyal customers even more excited to drop by for a visit. Last week, there were two new specialty summer drinks, a Chocolate Java Mint Frappuccino and a White Chocolate Macadamia Cream Cold Brew. This week, the company announced new summer-themed merchandise. Specifically, a variety of colorful, reusable drinkware. And to make them even more appealing, customers save money every time they use their fun new cup.

What's new at Starbucks?

Color is the theme of Starbucks' newest reusable drinkware. You can get everything from a Barbiecore-appropriate Bubblegum Pink cold cup to an Ocean Breeze water bottle. There are nine new color options in all, with some only being available with an in-store visit. But if that isn't enough to get you feeling ready to tackle those long, lazy days of summer bliss, you can also get a pack of color-changing cold cups. These magical offerings will reveal a mystery hue whenever a cold beverage is added. The only downside of this delightful drinkware is that the cups are only available for a limited time while supplies last.

How does this drinkware save me money?

Unlike avid collectors, Starbucks doesn't want your vibrant new cold cups to sit unused so they remain in mint condition. The company prefers you use them every time you enter the store and instead, keep them in minty condition. To encourage use of your favorite new drinkware when you stop by the popular cafe, Starbucks will take 10 cents off of your order.
