Starbucks 12 days of Gifting promotion continues today with Free Coffee during the month of January when you purchase and use the 16 oz Tumbler pictured above for $30.

Last year the tumbler was $19.95, so in my mind you are really paying $10 for the coffee – still a good price, but not quite as fun as I was hoping. If you know someone that makes a daily stop at Starbucks, this would make a fun gift. Remember, this deal is valid today, 12/3, only.

The free coffee doesn’t include specialty drinks, just brewed coffee. Last year they would let you get iced brewed coffee too, but it’s up to each barista since the ring code on the mug really only works for hot coffee.

Tip: These also sold out pretty fast last year, but I found lots in stock at Target Starbucks counters. You can also buy it online, but shipping adds another $4.95.

    • Does anyone know if the free coffee you get from this promo also works with the Starbucks card rewards? For example, my husband gets a regular brewed coffee fairly regularly at Starbucks and for each drink he purchases with his Starbucks card, he gets a point towards a free drink. After x number of points/purchases, he gets a free drink. Could he use this promo – getting the coffee for free anyways with the mug – and still have it count towards the Starbucks card rewards? Or is this too good to be true!? Thanks!

        It would not work since the card only gets swiped when you make a payment. Good thought though.

      I just bought one today and it says that this is not valid with any other offers or promotions.

        I think the free coffee is the promotion/offer. ;)

      I have to say, if you want a good deal on Starbucks coffee, the Target deal this week is great…..as long as you have the $3.00 off 2 coupon (12/2 SS) The coffee is 7.99 a bag but you get a $5.00 goft card when you buy 2. So after all is said and done, coupon and gift card, you get 2 11 oz bags of Starbucks coffee for $7 98! Then you can just make it in the comfort of your own home! Much better than spending $30.00 on a tumbler! Just my opinion, though. :) Happy Holidays!!!

      Be careful on this one! Our university IT administrator informed us today the Tumblr is having problems with a virus, and strongly urged us to stay off of their website until it is resolved. Just thought I’d pass that on!
