Fight mid-afternoon slump with a wake-up call from Starbucks. On Thursday,
Friday and Saturday, June 27, 28 and 29, all sizes of Starbucks’ handcrafted

Peach Green Tea, are half-off from 3 to 5 p.m. More info at Starbucks.com.
Starting today, Starbucks customers can opt for an earth-friendly coffee cup – and save a dime on each tall or grande drink they buy. The Seattle-based coffee company is selling $1 reusable plastic cups in an effort to cut down on paper cup waste and increase the number of drinks it sells in reusable cups by 2015.
Starbucks has sold resuable ceramic, plastic and metal tumblers for some time, but all carried a higher price tag than the new $1 model.
The reusable plastic cups, similar in size and design to the company’s paper cups, will be rinsed with boiling water by Starbucks employees before they’re refilled.
The new cups had a test run in October in 600 stores in the Pacific Northwest.
Through January 2, you can save up to 50 percent on select Stabucks’ merchandise including Christmas Blend coffees, coffee presses, stainless steel tumblers and gift sets at participating Starbucks stores and online at starbucksstore.com. Pay with a registered Starbucks Card and get a Star for each holiday item you buy.
Looking for the perfect gift for the latte lover on your holiday list? Starbucks’ new gift card might be just the thing, but the cost could have you choking on your cappuccino. The coffee company giant will release its new, limited-edition $450 Starbucks Metal Card Friday. (The exclusive offering is actually loaded with $400 worth of credit. The other $50 is what it costs to make each etched-on-metal card, according to Starbucks.)
But don’t plan on running down to your local Starbucks to get one. The pricy card, which also confers Gold Level membership on its owner, will be available exclusively on luxury website, Gilt.com. (You’ll have to sign up at Gilt ahead of time, but membership is free.)
Starting at noon EST Friday, Gilt members will be able to purchase the solid stainless steel status symbol, while supplies last. (Word is that Starbucks is making just 5,000.) The card can be used for beverages, food and merchandise – and that Starbucks Rewards Gold membership entitles you to perks like a free birthday drink, a free drink or food item after you buy 12 drinks, and free refills on brewed coffee or tea. Totally worth it, right?
Would you spend $450 on a Starbucks gift card?
