It may not feel like fall quite yet, but the Great Pumpkin (Spice Latte) has already arrived.
The polarizing drink officially made its grand return on Aug. 28, which some may say is too soon, while PSL enthusiasts are probably already buying their Halloween candy. On Aug. 30 from 3 p.m. until stores close, Starbucks' Happy Hour special is a buy-one-get-one: Pumpkin Spice Latte edition!
For Starbucks lovers who have problems hopping on the PSL train, don't worry — the same promotion applies to any espresso drink that is Grande or Venti.
What's that, you say? It's 100 degrees out and why is it still so hot and where do you file an official complaint? (Note: I would drink PSLs in the tropics, and do not empathize with this.)
Don't worry, the Starbucks siren has looked down on us with favor because iced espresso drinks are also a part of this promotion.
One caveat is that you either need to be a part of the Starbucks Rewards program, or you need to sign up on Starbucks' invite-only happy hour list — but don't worry, it's easy.
Here's how to do it: Go to the Starbucks Happy Hour website, add in your info and you'll receive a code to show to baristas at any participating location. You will also get the deals automatically when signing into Starbucks' free Wi-Fi or by signing into the Starbucks mobile app.
Cheers to — or down with? — the PSL! It's up to you.
