CoffeeHave you heard? On July 21, all Starbucks stores are offering a free pastry until 10:30 a.m. when you buy any size coffee. To take advantage of this offer, print your invitation here and show it to the barista. If you have a phone with Web capabilities, open this page in your phone’s browser and show them. 

Not all pastries are included in this deal. Here are the ones that are participating: Muffins, Scones, Bagels, Croissants, Rolls, Breads, Pound Cakes, Morning Bun, Coffeecakes, Cheese Danish, Apple Fritter, Doughnuts, Tarts, Pies, Gluten Free Orange Valencia Cake, Tropical Paradise Bar. (Your Starbucks may or may not have all of these on hand – get there early for the best selection.)

If you want to reduce your out-of-pocket expense for the coffee, here’s a little secret: Ask for a “short” coffee. Bet you thought the smallest size was Tall, right? Wrong! Short coffees are 8 ounces (Tall is 12) and they are the least expensive. Regular brewed coffees are also less expensive than the blended drinks like lattes and cappuccinos.

Remember, the offer expires at 10:30 a.m. on July 21, so don’t be late.
