Here are some tips to help you save money on your favorite fall drink.Fans of Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte are undoubtedly happy to see that it has returned for the season! There is something about holiday drinks that bring up feelings of comfort and nostalgia. The limited time it is available can influence some people to spend more money on these tasty drinks than they intended. Here are some tips to help you save money on a Pumpkin Spice Latte.

How to Save on Pumpkin Lattes

One of the best ways to save money at Starbucks is to join their loyalty program. It is called Starbucks Rewards Register any Starbucks gift card and use it when you make your purchases.

You will earn stars. Use those stars on a free drink, a free refill, or free food. Are you already a member? Check to see how many stars you have and use them to get your next Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Another option is to visit your local coffee shops to see if they are offering a drink that is similar to Starbucks “PSL”. The “mom and pop” coffee shops are probably going to offer some kind of special holiday drinks for fall. You might discover an alternative to the Starbucks version of a pumpkin spice flavored coffee drink. Chances are, it will be less expensive, too.

You could make your own version of a pumpkin spice latte at home. Typically, the cost of making a “copycat” recipe at home of something you would usually buy from Starbucks (or restaurants, or fast food places) costs less. “Copycat” recipes also give you more control of the ingredients that are in the item you are trying to make. That’s great for people with food allergies or special dietary needs.

Foodie Fiasco has a recipe for a vegan version of the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. The one at the Starbucks is not vegan and cannot be made that way.

Instructables has a recipe for a Pumpkin Spice Latte that actually contains some real pumpkin. One of the complaints about the “PSL” this year is the lack of pumpkin in the drink. Those who are upset about that can use the recipe at Instructables to make their own drink at home.

Food.com has a recipe for a Pumpkin Spice Latte that you can make in a crock pot. It takes five minutes to prepare, two hours to cook, and will give your home a nice fall scent while it is cooking.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
