    • Good idea, though I wonder if the lid is the same as those disposable ones in stores. My guess is its the same.

    • Just picked one up. Plastic cup is kind of thin so you will need the cardboard sleeve since it gets hot. The lid is plastic not disposable.

    • I was at Starbucks today and saw the cup.

      What was interesting about it was the girl said it'll last about a month - the Star should've mentioned that.

    • The word Mug makes it seem like a Ceramic Mug. Not hot . Even with 10c off you still paying 5$for a coffee

      Hey libballeng, I picked up the cup today. It also comes with a sturdy re-usable lid. What else is good is that the cup is a grande size and fits the grande disposable lid incase you don't want to use the re-usable lid.
      In addition, the cup and lid are BPA free but only the cup is microwave safe, but not the the lid. If they write your drink on your cup make sure they use the china marker (grease pencil) coz you can wipe it off if you get another drink.
      For $1 you can't go wrong. Get 10 drinks and it pays for itself!

      I agree. I definitely regret using the word "mug" based on what has been said subsequently. Alas, I can't edit the header, so you'll have to accept my apologies... I agree it's deceptive.

    • While I'm not crazy about starbucks, a Coffee there is about 20 cents more than turd horton's. You are thinking of a caramel cream non-fat extra ***** latte or whatever. Compare apples to apples guy

      a tall coffee with use of a reusable cup is $1.84. If you are a Starbucks gold member, you get a free drink with every 12 purchases. With that free drink, I usually order a venti quad shot something or other that is worth $7-$8

      True for $1 its a good thing, but from what dp99ag said it lasts a month. I guess for a month's usage its a good deal. Though a ceramic mug would be much better.

    • This is an amazing price for this cup. If you want to have a protein drink every morning at home, to buy a VEGA brand sport drink shaker would be $10.00. To buy this would be 10% of that, granted the VEGA protein shaker has 1 sample, but that doesn't matter...! Of course, it's also for the gym, this is great for home use.

    • I was watching one of the US news (KTLA I think) and they said even if your bring the cup dirty, they'll wash it for you.

      Yeah, starbucks will do this with any re-usable cup you bring in. "Washing" usually means swirling the boiling water they use for the tea around in it and dumping it out. At least that's what it means when I go to starbucks.

      I interpreted dp99ag's message as it will be sold for only one month. It is my understanding that Starbucks will accept this as a reusable cup and give you the $0.10 discount for as long as the cup shall live.

      The way I understood it is that since the cup is pretty thin plastic it will only last for about a month... after that it will probably start cracking and leaking so you'd have to purchase a new one.

      Agreed. I was surprised to find out that Star Bucks coffee is in-fact reasonably priced. I haven't gone back to Tim's for the past year just because it's only a .20 difference for freshly ground coffee.

      Yes that's what I meant.

    • Not sure I get it, why not use a re-usable mug that lasts longer? Is it more to look like "everyone else" and to show that you are drinking starbucks??

      I hate to admit it but I've actually never been to a Starbucks because I always thought coffees were like 4-5 bucks, I've been faithful to Tim's. Is it really only 20 cents more? Also, kind of a silly question but do they put the milk and sugar in for you or do you need to do that yourself?

    • I think a bunch of you are missing the point

      a) they have reusable mugs already (in the $15 - 20 range). To expect Starbucks to come up with a cheap reusable mug isn't logical.
      You can always get a cheap mug from elsewhere and use that.
      b) From a business perspective, i'm sure that these cost less than $1 to produce, and the fact that they'll be saving the cost of X number of cups is also huge to them.
      c) From a PR perspective - "oh, we care about the environment"
      d) From a consumer perspective, some people will look at this and feel that it's good for the environment and that they're buying their coffee from a socially responsible cafe.
      e) Some consumers (RFD'ers) will ensure that they use the cup at least 11 times so that they get more than their money's worth. And Starbucks will be there with arms wide open.

      It's a big win for Starbucks to roll out a flimsy, cheap plastic cup.

      If you go through drive thru, they do it for you (obviously). In store you do it yourself.
