Not All New Jersey Starbucks Will Be Giving Out Red Holiday Cups Today and Here’s Why
Today marks an annual tradition that kicks off our holiday season every single year.
According to NJ.com, Starbucks locations across the Garden State will be giving out free, reusable red cups in honor of the holiday season today, November 17th.
Once you have this cup, you will receive a 10 cent discount on your drink orders if you provide the red reusable cup. Starbucks Rewards members will also get 25 bonus stars.
Here's what you have to do in order to get one.
Hit up a Starbucks today and order a fall or holiday beverage of any size and in return, you will get a 16oz. 2022 limited edition red reusable cup. You can order them hot or iced to get the freebie.
Here are the drinks that apply according to NJ.com:
Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato
Caramel Brulée Latte
Chestnut Praline Latte
Irish Cream Cold Brew
Peppermint Hot Chocolate
Peppermint White Hot Chocolate
Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew
Pumpkin Spice Latte
Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte
Toasted White Hot Chocolate
Toasted White Chocolate Mocha
White Hot Chocolate
Remember, just order any size of these drinks and you can ask for them hot or iced.
However, be advised that three New Jersey Starbucks locations will not be participating thanks to a movement known as the Red Cup Rebellion.
According to NJ1015.com, The unionized locations have accused the corporation of months’ worth of union-busting retaliation, which Starbucks has denied."
Starbucks employees will be striking outside of the stores handing out, "alternative Starbucks Workers United branded cups with a 'Grinch' logo."
I will say, that is a bold move but also festive.
Here are the three locations with protests happening on Thursday, November 17th:
899 Denow Road, Hopewell
40 South Park Street, Montclair
2 Beachwood Road, Summit
Did you know there is even a Twitter account dedicated to this movement?
