Treat Receipt is Back!

The summer sun is heating up and what better way to beat the heat than celebrating the return of treat receipt! This is the perfect way to cool off on any hot summer day with a cold Grande hand-crafted drink for only $2 (plus applicable tax). My favorite summer drink is our Tazo® Iced Passion Tea Lemonade with its blend of hibiscus herbal tea and tangy lemonade sweetened to perfection. This pink hued drink pairs perfectly with flip flops, sunglasses and a sunny summer day.

And, starting this year, our friends in Canada can take advantage of treat receipt – same refreshing beverages, same price $2 (plus applicable tax). Many of you already know the drill, but it’s easy to take advantage of Treat Receipt, just come in anytime before 2 p.m. for your regular morning drink and return after 2 p.m. with your receipt in hand for any cold hand crafted beverage for only $2 (plus applicable tax).

Treat Receipt is available at participating stores.

    I got one of these last week and I got an iced coffee with whole milk & 3 pumps of classic. What's everyone's favorite to get?

    My most recent Treat Receipt beverage was a Chocolate Vivanno Smoothie with a shot of espresso to give me a boost for my bike ride home.

    It's to bad that not all the locations in Ottawa, Ontario allow the offer for the Frappacino's...I was so disappointed when I went to get a nice cold treat and they said it was only applicable for ice coffee or tea, not frappacino's. :(

      Suibing, make sure you check with the store manager! ALL of the stores in our area are accepting the treat receipts for ANY iced grande beverage, even the smoothies! I ordered an iced grande 5 shot caramel macchiato and got it for $2, even with the added 3 shots! AWESOME!

    • dennispng123
    • 7/29/2011 1:20 PM

    Suibing, that's actually not true. You can get any grande iced drink for $2+tax. Looks like those stores don't know the policy or choose not to follow it.

    I think it sucks that if you use a Starbucks card to pay for your beverage you don't get a treat receipt. I mean really?! I WAS spending $20 a day at Starbucks...but this left me sour - especially since I loaded cash onto the card after I purchased my morning beverage - I live in NYC so Starbucks isn't the only option

    Florida is not participating the treat receipt program this year, which is totally WRONG!!!! I used the receipts all the time the last two years and my beverage purchases are definitely reduced this summer because I don't have treat receipts. They are LOSING MONEY by not having them.

    wait so we just have to buy anything before 2pm and just come back before 2pm? cause when they said morning i thought they meant like before 12pm o.o"...

      you go to a starbucks that is participating before 2pm and you get a beverage and ask for your receipt, and on the receipt it says come back after 2 pm and get an grande sized cold drink for $2 plus tax.

    Can we see a list on starbucks who are giving treat receipts?? My normal location is not doing it this year. I went this am, so I can use the receipt when I get home, but not now since the store near my work does not give them anymore.

    • kellie2448

    Do you have to use the treat receipt at the same location that you received it?

      If you purchase a drink before 2pm, your barista will stamp your receipt so with a coupon of sorts that will let you get any cold grande drink for $2 after 2pm.

    Why does the drink have to be cold? I hate cold drinks! I get my mocha extra hot, even in the 100+ Texas heat!

    NOTE: This is NOT the old "redeem 2-5:00pm." It is 2:00pm until Close! EVEN BETTER! Thank you, Becky at Saint Louis' store in University City for pointing this out to me! I would have used these more this summer! :-)

    • cafefirefly
    • 8/1/2011 4:58 PM

    If you purchase several drinks (ex. three) before 2PM, do you only get one drink for $2+tax after 2PM or can you get the same number of drinks (ex. three drinks for $2+tax) as you originally purchased? Thanks for the help!

      • 8/1/2011 4:59 PM

      Just wanted to make that a little clearer -- I meant three drinks each at $2+tax, not just 2 bucks for all three!

      They should, but don't. Twice I purchased 2 coffees in the morning and asked about getting 2 discounted iced drinks later that afternoon, both times they said no go for 2, so we shared one instead. I could do 2 separate transactions in the morning, but it would be wasting my time, the barista's and customers waiting behind me. Seems goofy to me.

      It is per receipt. If you are buying 3 drinks and you want 3 receipts for the afternoon. Just pay for each drink seperately.

    • jfortus
    • 8/2/2011 5:45 AM

    Do you have to use it in the same store you bought your drink from in the morning? Or can I go and use it in the Starbucks on the other side of town?

      • gsaun039

      I am able to use my treat receipt at other Starbucks in the area. For example, if I stop at a free-standing store in the morning during my morning walk, I can use the receipt in the afternoon at the Starbucks in the grocery store while I'm shopping. All are located within 4 miles of each other.

      I have also used one from one city (a morning stop on the bus line) at the Starbucks near the my home in the afternoon. Haven't tried it flying across the country.

    I was told today that not all stores participate in giving out treat receipts. Only select stores. Mine is not this year and I'm very disappointed!!!!

    • Jasmin8
    • 8/3/2011 12:45 PM

    Does it have to be a beverage that has to be bought in the AM? I bought a bagel and the receipt only says to bring it in after 2pm for a cold drink. I just stopped by and was told no, I needed to have bought a drink in the AM in order to use the treat receipt and receive my $2 drink. There is nothing mentioned on the receipt that it HAS to be a beverage purchased.

    • bdrose56
    • 8/4/2011 4:48 PM

    Don't get me wrong, I think the treat receipt is great but I always buy Venti drinks and I wish we could get a discount on the Ventis. Some Starbucks in Indianapolis will allow Frappacinos for 2.00 and some will not. Is anyone sure on this?

    • jrodjenn
    • 8/4/2011 5:08 PM

    Hmm, what if you use the free birthday drink coupon? Would I still be eligible for the $2 deal?

    • tracymallory
    • 8/5/2011 11:09 AM

    Nice for frapucinos, etc., but two dollars for a grande iced tea saves five cents. Big deal;-(. It really ought to apply to vente (or even trente) sized iced tea drinks.

    • Shay12

    I used to get Vivannos with my treat receipt, going often during the summer because of the special. When I stopped in for the 3rd time last week, I was denied the vivanno. They told me I could not use the treat receipt for a smoothie - that none of the stores were supposed to, but some chose to ignore the policy. If they are going to exclude certain types of cold drinks, they should change the wording on the receipt in order to avoid misleading and dissapointing. They risk losing loyal customers.

      That is news to me. Vivannos are included in the Treat Receipt. You should share this feedback with the district manager or our Customer Service team. http://www.starbucks.com/customer/contact.asp or call 1-800-235-2883 M-F 5am-6pm Pacific Time

    I bought lunch at my Starbucks and will go back after 2pm to keep my afternoon slump away. Looking forward to my Grande Iced Vanilla Latte. It's mundane for many, but living la **** loca for me.

    Is there any limit for the treat receipt?
    I brought 3 receipts today for 3 beverages for my co-workers, but the store said that only 1 receipt per customer. Is that true?

    By the way, it's still an amazing idea for the treat receipt. Thanks Starbucks.
