A Look at How Starbucks Holiday Cups Have Changed Over the Years

Starbucks offering free reusable cups Thursday: How to get yours

Starbucks' new holiday cups have airline passengers jingling all the way to the front of the line at airports nationwide. Holiday cup-carriers, however, will board after first class passengers and those with special boarding designations, a press release explained.

Plus, this year Starbucks is making sure that its cafes look festive.

"This is disappointing that you promote people to buy a 1 use cup (I thought you guys wanted to be a leader in sustainability?) Just for priority boarding". "We just thought that was a very sweet expression of the brand, but still felt very holiday".

Candy Cane Stripe: "The colors of the holiday all come together with this design as the Starbucks wordmark falls like snow against stripes of candy cane red and white". In fun, block letters created to look like falling snow, the cup says "Merry Coffee", which is for the seasonal greeting we all need to start using. Each cup has a unifying green stripe on the back, similar to a ribbon.

- Polka dots: The red cup with green dots and the Siren logo. "But up close, its tiny type offers a happy holiday sentiment." Wow!


The designers also found other ways to bring the cups to life in the eyes of customers.

In addition to this year's four disposable cup designs, Starbucks is also offering a reusable holiday cup with a similar "merry" theme.

Additionally, the holiday cups will not be available at San Francisco, Atlanta, and Minneapolis-St.

The carrier and coffee giant have teamed up for a limited-time promotion, allowing Alaska customers to receive priority boarding on flights between November 7 and 10 if they hop on the aircraft with a Starbucks holiday cup in hand.
