I’ve written before about how to slash the price of coffee and also about the benefits of buying a brew in a coffee shop to be productive with work, however, this post is all about how to save a few pennies from your regular drink.
Especially during the festive season, the lure of limited edition Christmas drinks as well a the warmth of the indoors & the warm drink can bring us into the coffee shops on the high street. There is a way to get money knocked off every drink you get.
If you take a reusable cup, you’ll get 25p off Starbucks drinks. Many other chains do this as well, including Costa. It doesn’t have to be a cup from the specific chain you’re visiting, but it would help if it’s a similar size to those offered by the chain you’re visiting. The cheapest reusable Starbucks cup is £1, so use it four times and you’ve made your money back. Anything from there on is cash back in your pocket.
Keep an eye out for 2 for 1 specials, usually on festive drinks at certain hours between specific dates. If you regularly go to Starbucks, for instance, other shops are available, it might be worth getting a card which you can pre-pay money onto. If you then use this for your drinks you’ll build up towards a free beverage which is something everyone loves.
Fancy a freebie? It’s worth heading over to Money Saving Expert where they have a dedicated page for free drinks. You could grab a free brew from Waitrose or Booths or somewhere else. Win!
Enjoy a festive brew with friends this season, mine’s a hot chocolate..!
