Starbucks Giving Away Free Coffee Due To Gov. Shut Down
(We’ll pause for a moment while you celebrate, you SBux junkie, you.)
There’s only one catch: You have to be kind. As the government shutdown continues to blunder on, with everyone blaming everyone and no end in sight, the coffee conglomerate is hoping to inspire a bit of generosity.
From today, Oct. 9, to Friday, Oct. 11, Starbucks customers will receive a free tall brewed coffee if they buy the next customer in line his or her favorite beverage, “not as an act of charity or thanks, but an acknowledgement of commonality and humanity,” CEO Howard Schultz explains.
