Starting Thursday, November 7, 2019, Starbucks holiday cups become available in stores in the United States and Canada.
Free limited-edition reusable red cup with 50 cents off refills
But the best cup is a reusable one, and Starbucks is giving away a free limited-edition reusable red cup to customers who order a holiday beverage at participating Starbucks stores in the United States and Canada on Nov. 7, while supplies last.
Even better, customers who bring back their 2019 reusable red cup to a participating Starbucks store in the United States or Canada after 2 p.m. Nov. 7 through Jan. 6 will get 50 cents off their handcrafted grande (16-ounce) holiday beverage.
Starbucks Holiday Cup Designs
Typography is used as the main illustrative element for three of the Starbucks holiday cup designs, with whole letters playfully rotated for a musical, song-like quality, while polka dots playfully cover the fourth.
Each cup design has a unifying green stripe on the back, finishing the cup like a ribbon.
“We played with this idea of typography being art and the green dot of the Starbucks logo,” said Jen Quotson, vice president of Starbucks Creative.
“We just thought that was a very sweet expression of the brand, but still felt very holiday.”
Polka Dots: The traditional Starbucks red cup is dotted with green, with the Siren playfully popping in here and there.
Merry Dance: A lively pairing of red and green letters jazz up a snowy white cup with a joyful holiday wish.
Merry Stripes: From a distance, this cup looks like it’s wrapped in green vintage wrapping paper. But up close, its tiny type offers a happy holiday sentiment.
Candy Cane Stripe: The colors of the holiday all come together with this design as the Starbucks wordmark falls like snow against stripes of candy cane red and white.
