Starbucks Red Cup Day 2023

First off, as usual, this is an as supplies last event. However, because of the chaos that has ensued in the past, Starbucks stores have stocked up much better than the previous years and the supplies should be able to last. You’re still going to want to go as early as you’re able though, to get a better chance of getting your cups!

One oversight for some, is that Starbucks that are not stand alone stores will also have these cups. Target, Kroger, and other stores that have a Starbucks inside will have this available as well, so if your regular Starbucks has already run out, that is most definitely the place I would suggest going.

If this is your first time joining a Starbucks Red Cup Day, you must order a holiday drink to receive this exclusive cup. For every holiday drink you purchase, you will get a Starbucks Red Cup to go with it. The size of the drink doesn’t matter. This includes these flavors:

  • Peppermint Mocha (or White Mocha)
  • Caramel Brulee
  • Gingerbread
  • Sugar Cookie

You can get these iced, hot, Frappuccino, doesn’t matter. It just needs to be a holiday menu drink. Not a fan of the holiday flavors? If you need to cheat a bit to get yourself a cup, you can always do a Peppermint Mocha, no peppermint, or something similar to that, understanding you’re paying a little more, but at least you’ll enjoy the drink that you are receiving.
