Starbucks managers told us that people complained that they had missed individual deals because they couldn't get into the store that day. But the problem is they haven't even offered 12 different specials. Perhaps if there had been four specials each week for three weeks we could have gotten excited about it. In past years there was a special for in store purchase and one online.
In 2013, Starbucks has only offered coffee loves two special Christmas deals each week instead of 7-14 as in past years. If you are disappointed with the promotion this year, make sure you let the managers of your Starbucks know. This company does listen to feedback. This isn't to say that we will drink and buy any less Starbucks, no the addiction is still intact and "Red Cup" day still makes us very happy.
Starbucks store hours vary greatly by location and not all stores are open on Christmas in 2013, please ask your favorite barista and remember to be kind to them during the holidays and tip generously. Making perfect latte's for you all year deserves a reward.
