It’s a summer Friday and the heat index in my city is over 105 degrees. So in truly excellent news, Starbucks announced that as a special treat it would be giving away free Frappuccinos this afternoon. Friday, June 29, 2018. That’s today. And that means it’s the perfect day to take an afternoon walk and try out any of Starbucks’ new Frappuccinos that you may have had your eye on.

According to Delish, Starbucks buy-one-get-one Frappuccino Happy Hour starts this afternoon at 3 p.m. If you show up at that time with your Starbucks card or Starbucks app and order any grande or larger Frappuccino or espresso-based drink, you’ll get a second one (of equal or lesser value) for free.

You can only use the Happy Hour offer once, and you do need to be a Starbucks Rewards member to take advantage of it. If you’re not already a member there’s still time to sign up here in plenty of time to take advantage of the Frappuccino Happy Hour BOGO this afternoon.

Then you’ll just have to do the hard part: Picking out which Frappuccino you want to try. (Matcha Green Tea is my favorite, but Free Frappuccino day seems like the time to branch out of my Frappuccino rut and try something new.)

Starbucks get very crowded during Frappuccino Happy Hour, so plan accordingly and be prepared for a longer than normal wait. And be extra nice to your baristas, they’re going to be working hard today.

What’s your favorite Starbucks Frappuccino?
