Starbucks Ran Out of Reusable Red Cups in Minutes and People are Not Happy
When are they ever, though?
“I’m shocked that people are pissed about Starbucks’ holiday cups,” said no one ever.
This time, customers are furious that the coffee chain quickly ran out of the reusable red cups it gave away for free on Friday.

Customers who ordered a holiday-themed beverage on Friday were supposed to get a red cup with their purchase, Starbucks announced last week.
The promotion turned out to be a bit too popular, though, as many stores ran out within minutes.
Needless to say, people are outraged.
Starbucks is doing its best to make up for the flop: It’s offering the cup for only $2.50. Present the cup between now and January 7, and you’ll get 50 cents off your seasonal order.
