Best of all, the offer is good for pick-up or delivery orders, whether you order through mobile and pick up your beverage in-store or at the curb, indoor dining where available or even UberEats delivery.

“The reusable red cup has become a tradition for customers each holiday season and is a step towards reducing single-use cup waste as we work towards our planet-positive goals,” Starbucks chief marketing officer Brady Brewer said in a news release on the Starbucks site.

This year’s cup, celebrating Starbucks’ 50th anniversary, is manufactured from 50% recycled content. It features a holiday gift theme with “playful swirls of shimmering ribbon dancing against a starry sky.”

The only question remaining is: What will fill your complimentary Starbucks holiday cup?

Options include the new Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte, along with several classic seasonal favorites like:

  • Apple Crisp Macchiato
  • Caramel Brulee Latte
  • Chestnut Praline Latte
  • Hot Chocolate
  • Irish Cream Cold Brew
  • Pumpkin Spice Latte
  • Toasted White Hot Chocolate
  • Toasted White Chocolate Mocha

The offer is good only while supplies last at Starbucks locations, and brewed coffee selections like Starbucks Christmas Blend and Christmas Starbucks Reserve are not included.
