While I love coffee and Starbucks is definitely my go-to coffeehouse, I have to admit the main reason I go there is the amazing happy hour deals the chain offers. While I don’t always wait for a discount, chances are when there is one, you’ll find me there.

If Starbucks discounts are always on your radar too, listen up. While the happy hour deals used to arrive in your email inbox and you just needed to show your barista, according to an email from Starbucks, you will now need to download the Starbucks app to continue receiving the deals.

The app is free, so the deals haven’t changed, just the way you get them has.


Past deals have included half-off drinks and buy-one-get-one-free deals, with the latest being 50-percent off grande or venti handcrafted espresso drinks on Feb. 7. The deals are definitely going to save you some cash, so make sure you download the app to keep receiving them!

Starbucks also just added some Valentine’s Day treats to its menu, including the cherry mocha, which is back for the second year. The drink combines slightly sweet mocha sauce with candied syrup and hot espresso. Steamed milk is then added and it’s all topped with whipped cream and a dusting of sugar and cocoa Valentine’s sprinkles. You can now order it hot, iced or blended through Feb. 14 at participating Starbucks.
