December typically involves a lot of shopping, plenty of driving, and more get-togethers and parties than you would expect to experience at other times of the year. Cold weather can make you want a hot cup of coffee. Wherever you are, there is probably a Starbucks nearby. Here are some tips on how to save money at Starbucks.

Wait for Happy Hour
Starbucks has a weekly happy hour. It usually appears on Thursdays at around 3:00 in the afternoon. You can get email from Starbucks that will inform you about upcoming happy hours. (This may involve signing up for the emails online).

Starbucks offers special happy hour deals. It could be a buy one, get one free deal. Or, it might be a big discount on a specific type of beverage.

Starbucks Rewards
Starbucks Rewards is a rewards program from Starbucks. All you need to get started is a Starbucks gift card. The purchases you make at Starbucks add up to free food and drinks. Starbucks Rewards members also get a birthday reward, free in-store refills, and more.

It doesn’t cost anything at all to join Starbucks Rewards. It is a good deal for people who frequently go to Starbucks, several times a week, and buy drinks and food. Keep doing what you already do, and earn rewards at the same time.

Bring Your Own Cup
Starbucks allows customers to bring in their own reusable cup. The baristas will fill it with whatever drink you order. It doesn’t matter what kind of cup it is – so long as it is reusable. Customers who bring in a reusable cup get 10 cents off their beverage order.

Hold the Ice
Starbucks tends to put a lot of ice in their cold drinks. If that bothers you, ask the barista to hold the ice. That way, your cup will have more room for the drink that you purchased. If the weather is cold – then you probably don’t actually need the ice.

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.
