What Are The Details?

  • Starting December 1 through December 31, any customer who identifies as a front-line responder to the COVID-19 outbreak will receive a tall brewed coffee (hot or iced) at no charge (see full eligibility list below).
  • The offer can be redeemed at Starbucks U,S, company-operated locations and select licensed stores.

Free Coffee Offer Eligibility

The following front-line health care provide and first responders are eligible for the free tall coffee offer:

  • doctors
  • nurses
  • public health workers
  • pharmacists
  • dispatchers
  • firefighters
  • paramedics
  • police officers
  • dentists
  • dental hygienists
  • mental health workers (therapist, psychologist, social worker, counselor, etc.)
  • hospital staff (janitor, housekeeping, security)
  • active-duty military


The Bottom Line

Starbucks did a similar offer back in May.

A lot of companies are supporting workers in the healthcare field. These front-line employees are putting themselves at increased risks for getting coronavirus and it’s nice they’re getting small tokens of appreciation in return.

Feedback from when they offered this the first time is that Starbucks won’t verify people claiming to be eligible. All you need to do is identify yourself as a healthcare worker and you’ll get the free coffee. Obviously, don’t abuse this honor system if you don’t qualify unless you want bad ninja karma.
