Get a free Starbucks holiday cup and a discount through January 7

Starbucks’ holiday cup designs have been a magnet for controversy over the years. This season the company is hoping to use them to draw customers back to the stores in the typically slow afternoon period

So if you want to get happy-and the number of CBD beverages on the market implies that you do-just start sucking on a candy cane, crank up "Last Christmas", put on your ugly sweater, and jingle all the way to Starbucks, where we will be protesting its apparent boycott of Thanksgiving.

The "Stripes" cup features thick bands of bright poppy and dark cranberry red, accented with white pale rose gold, drawing inspiration from sealed seam that runs along the back of each bag of Starbucks coffee and "born out of the holiday feeling of boxing holiday presents and wrapping paper".

What's going on: Starbucks unveiled its latest lineup of holiday cups Thursday. Last year's cup "didn't resonate with some, [but] it did resonate with others".

Hop on over to Starbucks on November 2nd for a holiday drink!

In 2017, Starbucks went a different route - crafting a white design with doodles that encouraged customers to decorate and color the cup to their liking.

Brewer said employees asked customers for feedback in person and the company gathered data through its app.

This year, the company is strictly sticking with Christmas.

The red cup offer means customers can bring the plastic cup back in store any day after 2 p.m.to score 50 cents off their holiday beverage order until January 7.

New pastries and traditional drinks: Starbucks is really leaning into the Christmas spirit this year with three holiday pastries - the Pistachio Honey Croissant, Sugarplum Cheese Danish and Chocolate Swirl Brioche, USA Today reports.

Occasionally, Starbucks was criticized for not embracing Christmas enough - we're looking at you, red cup.

Back then, Starbucks told the New York Times that it would leave it up to customers to interpret what was on the cup.
