Starbucks Happy Hour 2018: The Complete Guide (Hours, Pricing & Info)
I hope you'll agree with me when I say:
Starbucks Happy Hour is one of the Best. Things. Ever.
It's seriously one of those things I look forward to because it's always a delicious surprise.
Scoring discounted drinks (that I'd already be buying anyway) is just awesome. And they always seem to be adding new discounted drinks to the happy hour menu!
The only problem is how many questions people have about it. So we figured it needed its own post breaking down all the little details so you can join in the fun!
We'll be covering what time happy hour at Starbucks starts, how to sign up, when it is and also happy hour offers so you have an idea of prices.
Starbucks Happy Hour 2018
You have questions about when or what's on the menu at Starbucks Happy Hour so you do a search online...
The problem is there isn't really one spot breaking it all down for you:
Since Starbucks Happy Hour is offered by an invite-only system and is only available for a limited time, there really isn't a whole lot of information floating around about it, that's why we made this simple guide for any questions you have about Starbucks Happy Hour 2018.
First things first:
Because Starbucks Happy Hour is invite-only, the first thing you'll want to do is sign up for Starbucks Happy Hour. It's pretty simple to do and if you're a Rewards Member, there's some good news: you're already a member and don't even need to sign up!

What is Starbucks Happy Hour?
Since 2010, Starbucks has offered Happy Hour promotion throughout the year (usually in the Spring) which was half off Frappuccinos back then.
Now in 2018, Starbucks Happy Hour includes a bunch of drinks including espressos, teas and iced tea, Frappuccino and more drink surprises. And we're keeping track of them all.
The only catch?
It's invite-only. But you can get an invite here. The dates and release info for upcoming drinks is all kept secret until announced on the Happy Hour site.
Is there a Starbucks Happy Hour Menu?
No. Because it's once-a-month surprise, the company releases one promotion per month that usually ends up being a Thursday so really you'll just have to see the promotions as they become available.
Here's some of the drink offers released in the past:
- Half Off Espresso
- Half Off Macchiatos
- Half Off Frappuccinos
- Half Off Lattes or Macchiatos

Can I redeem more than one offer?
It varies. While it's worth trying you might run into a grumpy barista who doesn't bend on the rules. Give it a try and let us know how it goes, we'd love to hear. We're actually hoping Starbucks bends on this promotion and allows others to buy more than one drink per code.
If I'm a Starbucks Rewards member do I still have to sign up?
No. If you're already a Starbucks Rewards member you are already in and good to go. The great thing about Starbucks Happy Hour is they've made it so if you're already a Starbucks Rewards member you automatically are a Happy Hour member.
So bring on the delicious deals!
