Viral News

(WKRG) — Free Starbucks! That got your attention. It’s one of the top stories on WKRG.com.

How to get free Starbucks this week

No, sadly you can not get a free Pumpkin Spice Latte, or ‘PSL’ as the kids say.

Wednesday, September 29 you can get a free Pikes Place coffee at any Starbucks coffee shop. You do have to bring your own cup though.

It can be iced or hot and up to 20 ounces which is equal to a Venti.

It is one per customer and in-store only, so you can not call ahead or use the drive-thru.

This coffee giveaway is to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary. I can’t believe Starbucks has been around that long.

The Pikes Place roast is a medium roast and was named after Starbucks original store location in Seattle’s Pikes Place market.
