Starbucks is changing its popular happy hour promo, again. This time, for the better.
The changes give customers more clarity and choices. First, if you didn’t know, the discounted pricing is only open to members of its Starbucks Rewards loyalty program. You must download its app and become a Starbucks Rewards member. When the happy hour special is available, you will find the required digital coupon on the app. (Starbucks Rewards members automatically have the offer loaded onto their account — good for one-use only.)
Previously, the happy hour special was offered on random week days from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., usually for a specific beverage. The downside was that, if it was for a drink you didn’t enjoy, you were out of luck.
However, moving forward, here are the changes…
The offer will be available on select Thursdays. (Starbucks usually gives members a few days notice.)
It’s now available for an extra hour — from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.
And, best of all, the offer will be for a buy-one-get-one FREE on ANY handcrafted drink — grande or larger.
