With the season of Starbucks holiday drinks underway, the coffee chain is presenting customers an early gift: a free red cup.
Starbucks on Thursday kicked off Red Cup Day. Customers who order a holiday or fall hand-crafted beverage will receive a free, limited-edition reusable red cup.
Starbucks says the cups are available while supplies last. Customers can get their free cup by ordering from their nearby Starbucks, via delivery or using the Starbucks app.
Coinciding with Thursday's Red Cup Day, workers at more than 100 U.S. Starbucks stores say they're going on strike, in what could be the largest labor action since a campaign to unionize the company’s stores began late last year.
The walkouts are planned on what workers say is often one of the busiest days of the year, although Starbucks declined to say how many red cups it plans to distribute.
