Starbucks Canada: Earth Day Free Coffee Or Tea When You Bring In A Reusable Cup!


On April 22nd to celebrate Earth Day Starbucks is offering a free coffee or tea when you bring in your reusable mug. They’ve offered this freebie for quite a few years now and it’s a great incentive to reuse your mug. Is there anything special you will do on Earth Day? I was thinking I might get dressed before noon and go work on my garden.

Bumping up from March 22nd as a reminder 🙂

  4. Twinmommy says:

    Great post! I’m there too!

  5. Dylan says:

    April 22 is good Friday. I wonder how many people will get the deal considering it is a holiday. These deals are normally on a work day as I usually hit them up for free coffee a few times a day.

    Earth day is April 22nd, Earth Hour March 26th.

    Can we bring any mug or thermos? or does it have to be from Starbucks?

  8. ninna says:

    Mmmm. Starbucks.

    I would like to be there for my free coffee-but my conscience gets the better of me. It’s a 15 minute drive to my nearest Starbucks. LOL. And driving 15 minutes for a free coffee in my reusable mug kinda seems to defeat the whole “earth week” thing, a little…doesn’t it?

    maybe i will try to get dressed before noon too! lol!!

  10. Skippy says:

    You can take any mug from anywhere, however they will not fill up a thermos.

  11. Tea-aholic says:

    Has the tea part been verified? The last couple of years, I have been told, both by customer service and the baristas that you could not get tea instead of coffee.

  12. Stacy says:

    is the mug for them to fill up or will they take your mug?

  13. Jor says:

    Starbucks is also having a 20% on all mugs and tumblers for that day. No purchase limits.

  14. Jor says:

    And tea is also part of the deal. One free tea or coffee per customer while quantities last.

    Reusable cups are great for the environment, but I personally think it’s kind of gross. I once saw a guy rest a reusable cup on top of the urinal in the restroom, while he peed. 5 mins later I saw the same cup on the serving counter, while it was being refilled by the employee. =S

    What else happens to these cups, that we don’t know about?!?

    Same thing happens when you go down south to resorts. I see everyone using reusable cups, while the bartender touches the beer tap inside the same cup. That’s a GREAT way to spread germs. I actually caught a head cold while on vacation in Cuba last year. Wonder if I caught it from a tainted tap?

  16. Sally says:

    All the Legions i’ve been in reuse the beer mugs too tapping them on the side. Nice eh.

  17. erin says:

    this is perfect as i will be at school studyng for my last final (day after earth day) and we have a starbucks nearby!

  18. TallNFunny says:

    I am really baffled at how few people I see who buy their coffee everyday and can’t be bothered to use a reusable cup…

  19. frugal.tea says:

    You had me at tea 🙂 Thanks

  20. Momof3crazyboys says:

    I know at Tim Hortons they are allowed to use a spoon in their cups to stir in your sugar, cream what have you, However if you bring in a ReFillable Mug, they have to use a Stir Stick not to contaminate or pass on Germs/Bacteria from cup to cup… the Stir Stick they then throw away.

    I’m another one that first thought “Ah it’s Good Friday”…so I definitely won’t be going out of my way, wasting gas in order to get a free coffee. Had it been a work day, I may have taken them up on the offer.

    @Steve…. reusable or disposable – if someone is going to take their cup and place it on top of a urinal, they’re going to do it no matter what kind of cup they have in hand. It is gross either way.

    @TallNFunny – sometimes people forget them. I have several and every now and then I forget it.

  22. Selm says:

    I think I’ll pick up my free beverage then wander down to vote in the advance polling (which I’m still amazed is on a federal holiday)

  23. Elizabeth Blaze says:

    If only I had a Starbucks in walking distance. Somehow getting in the car and driving there kinda defeats the purpose of the offer doesn’t it?

  24. Disappointed soul... says:

    Peterborough, ON
    Starbucks is closed today 🙁 both the drive thru and chapters…

  25. Shel says:


    hmm, i think it’s best that you lock your front door and stay inside for the day. and just think! the weekend’s here too, so you don’t have to go outside! 🙂

    …it’s dangerous out there, what, with all the germs and traffic and stuff.

  26. mhk says:

    Took DH and went and got 2 free coffees at drive thru, then went to McD and used the buy one get one free egg mcmuffin coupons 🙂 Ahh what a posh and cheap way to have a fun breakfast!

    The girl at the drive through was so pleasant too – so that was an added bonus. They are offering their gold blend and the pike roast. Also tea.

  27. not going to leave a name says:

    that’s pretty cool.

  28. gadi says:

    i was charged $2. better not promise anything you are not going to delivered…

  29. Porkaroo says:

    @mhk – didn’t those McDonalds coupon expire already?

    @gadi –
    Did you remember your reuseable mug?
    They shouldn’t have charged you if you did.
    Provided they were participating in the promotion.

    I got my two mugfuls at two different Starbucks without a problem in downtown Toronto.
    Until next year!
