Starbucks Latest Attempt Over Their Holiday Cups Flops Hard
Well that didn't take very long, did it? The coffee giant’s tradition of holiday cup drama continues...
It hasn't even been a week and customers are already moodier than The Grinch on Christmas Eve over Starbucks new reusable versions of their holiday cups. All that hype and excitement ended quickly as many showed up early to find out that there weren't very many cups sent to each store. In fact, some Starbucks locations received a "limited supply" of cups to give out to thirsty fans.
The debut of the reusable cups were on the same day that Starbucks released their holiday beverages for the season including White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulee Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte and Eggnog Latte.
As most people expected, Starbucks just released what their plan is to make things right again: They will now be offering the holiday cups for purchase of only $2.50. If you purchase the cup you will get the same offer as those who got the cup last week which is 50 cents off a grande holiday beverage through Monday, January 7th 2019.
So I guess there's worse things in the world.
