Two dollars! Two dollars!
I’m a little impressed. Generally whenever Starbucks has a promotion, the stores nearest me seem to have never heard of it, have completely wrong information, or pull the “participating locations” crap.
Looking to bring more value-seeking consumers through its doors for a late afternoon caffeine fix, Starbucks Corp. said it will now offer its morning customers any iced grande beverage for $2 after 2 p.m.
The price is a big cut from the normal price of most grande-sized iced drinks. A grande iced latte, for example, costs about $4. To get the discount, customers must present a receipt from their morning Starbucks visit.
I’m not normally inclined to hit Starbucks in the afternoon since I don’t do coffee breaks beyond my morning stop on the way into the office, but with this I might pick up a cheap iced drink on the way home or after my commute in Columbia Heights, assuming you can use it at a different store. Kudos to them for a promotion that’s easy to understand and easy to redeem.
