Brace yourselves, Starbucks fans — the coffee chain has a great summer "buy one, get one" special going on right now that will let you and a friend enjoy an iced beverage for the cost of just one drink.
The BOGO deal, which Starbucks is offering to celebrate summer, will let you receive a complimentary iced espresso beverage of equal or lesser value for free when you order a grande iced espresso beverage. The special will run at participating stores in the United States from June 27 to July 2. But the promo is only active during select hours in the day — 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. local time.
The mid-workday window makes the special perfect for a quick pick-me-up for you and a friend, colleague, or benevolent stranger. Or, if you're feeling extra fatigued or less in the mood to share, then you can indulge in both beverages yourself.
Who you choose to BOGO with is up to you, but what you can order does have some limitations. You can't get just any iced beverage — their popular lemonade teas, for example, are off limits. And you can't get the sugary Frappuccinos either, since they're technically blended.
But everything else iced and caffeinated is fair game. Starbucks baristas recommend one of these five options for an iced beverage with a fun, summery twist: Starbucks Doubleshot® on Ice, Iced Caffè Americano, Iced White Chocolate Mocha, Iced Soy Latte, and Iced Caramel Macchiato.
Now, hurry off and get yourself an iced drink this summer.
