We have some Secrets for Saving At Starbucks and much much More for you today! Come and see how to save and learn some of your favorite places secrets!
Who says no to a Starbucks drink? Not many people. Everybody loves Starbucks! But not everyone enjoys the price tag that comes along with it. Especially if you indulge daily. If you can’t resist heading to Starbucks for your coffee fix, you’d better consider these savings options next time you head out to appease your java cravings.
Go light on the ice
As much as 50% of your beverage is watered down when ice is in the mix. Get more of what you actually paid for and ask for light ice.
Pay for your drink, not the ice.
Find a new drink
Sometimes we get in a rut and order the same thing over and over without thinking.
How about trying a new, less expensive drink?
Here’s a list of drinks under $3:
- Iced Coffee With Milk and Flavored Syrup $2.45 – tall
- Raspberry Passion Tea Lemonade $2.95 – tall
- Green Iced Tea – $2.95 – tall
- Iced Coffee With Classic Syrup – $2.75 – grande
Secret Sized Cup
We all know that Starbucks drinks come in:
- Tall 12oz
- Grande 16oz
- Venti 20oz
But, did you know you can order a Short? A Short is 8oz and of course costs less.
Also, sometimes they have a special where they will offer the Mini size which is 10oz and costs less, as well.
Two Iced Teas For The Price Of One
Order your iced tea with no water, sounds weird, I know. Starbucks tea is brewed very strong and then when you order it, they water it down.
So, you can either ask for it with no water and get very strong tea. Or you can ask for it with no water and then order water on the side and make 2 glasses of tea and pay for just one.
Take it a step further and order your iced tea with no water and no ice, then ask for iced water and you’ll get even more for your money.
Don’t forget the Pooch
Starbucks even has a deal for your dog!
Just order a Puppycino and they will give you free whipped cream in an espresso cup for your pup! FREE!
You can save a great deal of money with Starbucks promotions that run throughout the year.
Follow them on social media to keep updated on the current promos they offer.
Previous events have included:
- happy hours
- treat receipts
- holiday discounts
Make sure to stay connected and get on in the savings.
Forget about bottled water
Water is a must. No doubt about it. But don’t buy bottled water at Starbucks.
Just ask the Barista for iced water, they use a triple filtered water for the coffee, so it’s the same you’d get if you bought a bottled water… plus you are doing something good for the planet.
Saving money isn’t hard if you know the secrets. Make sure you use these Starbucks secrets next time you need some caffeine.
Most Barista’s wear a green apron showing they have been trained in the art of making your coffee… but once and awhile you will find one with a black apron on and that means that that person is a Coffee Master. So it might be fun to ask that person to make your order!
Free Drink on your Birthday
Did you know if you are a Starbucks Card Holder and you have signed up for the Starbucks App… you can get a Free Drink or A Free Food Item on your Birthday!
Ok… most of Starbucks delicious syrups are truly Vegan but there are a few thicker ones like Pumpkin Spice (I know… painful)… White Mocha… Caramel Brûlée and Caramel Drizzle that are not… so be careful!
Starbucks Rewards Program
Don’t forget to sign up for Starbucks Rewards Program… you will be surprised how quickly that free cup of coffee will come your way.
At Starbucks, there’s always a drink you can order for any given occasion. You might just not know which one, because there are so many choices from their secret menu! We’ve got you covered, we have compiled a short list of Starbucks drinks for special occasions that you can order from the secret menu. The one thing that will help you open the door to the secret menu is to ask your Barista for your drink along with instructions and we have you covered with that below. There are other ones popping up all the time… maybe you might want to create one of your own. As long as you know what to ask for you should have no problems! They are all so incredibly yummy! I have a suggestion… I had a Biscotti blended in my frap and it was amazing! Enjoy!
Birthday Cake Frappuccino
This is a drink that’s great for anyone who’s celebrating a birthday! It’s like having a birthday cake in your coffee cup. Who wouldn’t love that?
All you need to do is order a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino, add 1 to 2 pumps of Hazelnut syrup, depending on the size you order: tall, grande, or venti. Then, ask your barista to blend a cake pop into your special drink.
Vanilla bean frappuccino and a birthday cake pop. You just got yourself a birthday cake frappuccino!
Candy Cane Frappuccino
If you’re seeing candy canes, that’s just one sign that the season of giving is drawing near! It’s Christmas!
In order for you to get this Christmas holiday drink, you just have to order a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino and add 1 to 2 pumps of peppermint syrup depending on the size of your cup and you are set to get in the holiday spirit.
This next one is actually a popular secret menu item from the UK. Another Christmas holiday drink you can enjoy from across the pond is the Snowball Frappuccino.
It’s simply a White Chocolate Creme Frappuccino with 1 to 2 pumps of toffee or hazelnut syrup. Top it off with some caramel brulée and you’re good to go!
Also known as the Franken Frappuccino is a fun drink and proof that Starbucks is embracing creativity with all these secret menu drinks. It’s made for the Halloween season but the best thing is you can order it any time of the year.
You can order this spooky drink by asking your barista for a Green Tea Creme Frappe with a pump of peppermint syrup. Don’t forget to add some white chocolate sauce with a scoop of crisp java chips. Then ask your barista to have it drizzled with mocha syrup and add some whipped cream all around it. Viola! You’ve got yourself a Franken Frappuccino!
Valentine’s Day Frappuccino
Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be complete without something red or pink! Not to mention, the most classic V-day flavors – chocolate and berries!
For this heart day drink recipe, order a Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino made with white mocha. Tell your barista to add 2 to 4 pumps of raspberry syrup and and there you have it, a love day frappuccino you can order all year round!
St. Patrick’s Day wouldn’t be complete without ordering something green from the secret menu at Starbucks!
Order a tall Vanilla Bean Frappuccino, add one and a half pumps of peppermint syrup, and a half pump of classic syrup, then finally 2 scoops of matcha powder.
Vanilla, peppermint, and matcha powder – the perfect trio for a St. Patrick’s Day drink!
