The holidays are coming early for the millions of customers who patronize Starbucks each day. Starting today through Sunday, the coffee chain is offering a buy-one-get-one-free deal on holiday drinks. From the hours of 2 to 5 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, customers who buy a caramel brulée latte, peppermint mocha, peppermint white chocolate mocha, gingerbread latte, eggnog latte, caramel brulée Frappuccino, or peppermint mocha Frappuccino will get one of equal value gratis on the house. For those who shun caffeine, the deal includes the company's peppermint hot chocolate, too.
Now I have a legitimate excuse to order that peppermint mocha I've been denying myself this week. Will you do the same?
