Although Thanksgiving is a couple of weeks away, it’s time to get into the Holiday Spirit. With this Starbucks Alaska Airlines promotion, coffee lovers have even more reason to smile. Starbucks is now celebrating the holidays with festive menu items, holiday cups, and new reusable red cups. Plus, anyone with a Starbucks Holiday cup receives priority boarding on Alaska Airlines from November 7th through 10th.
Starbucks Holiday Menu
Every year, Starbucks rolls out a new holiday menu with past favorites and new surprises. This year, you can indulge your taste buds on five delicious flavors:
- Peppermint Mocha
- Toasted White Chocolate
- Caramel Brulee Latte
- Chestnut Praline Latte
- Eggnog Latte
And your favorite drinks can be poured into four new cup designs called Polka Dots, Merry Dance, Merry Stripes, and Candy Cane Stripe.
- Polka Dots: The traditional Starbucks red cup is dotted with green, with the Siren logo playfully popping in here and there.
- Merry Dance: A lively pairing of red and green letters jazz up a snowy white cup with a joyful expression.
- Merry Stripes: From a distance, this cup looks like it’s wrapped in green vintage wrapping paper. But up close, its tiny type offers a happy sentiment.
- Candy Cane Stripes: The colors of the holiday all come together with this design as the Starbucks wordmark falls like snow against stripes of candy cane red and white.
New Reusable Cup for 2019
If you care about the environment as I do, then the Starbucks reusable cup is the way to go. On November 7th, Starbucks is giving away free limited-edition reusable red cups to customers who order a Holiday Beverage at participating stores. Supplies are limited, so grab your cup first thing in the morning!
For coffee lovers, the savings can really add up with this reusable cup. Bring your reusable cup back to receive $0.50 off your handcrafted grande holiday beverage. The discount is good after 2 p.m. through January 7, 2020.
Festive Food and Bakery Items
Anna loves Starbucks, but I’m not much of a coffee guy. Instead, when I visit Starbucks, I order one of their yummy pastries. For the holidays, Starbucks is rolling out some sweet treats that will make your belly happy:
- Holiday Turkey & Stuffing Panini
- Cranberry Bliss Bar
- Sugar Plum Danish
- Snowman Cookie
- Gingerbread Loaf
- Peppermint Brownie Cake Pop
- Snowman Cake Pop
Starbucks Alaska Airlines Promotion
Alaska Airlines loves to cross-promote with other brands, like the San Francisco Giants BOGO offer. I hope that they continue to work with other popular brands like Starbucks that are outside the traditional travel world.
From Thursday, November 7th through Sunday, November 10th, show up for your Alaska Airlines flight with a Starbucks Holiday Cup to receive priority boarding after Group B. Don’t worry, you’ll still receive priority boarding if your cup is empty.
Select airport Starbucks locations are piloting compostable cups, so they won’t have holiday cups available. However, they will have holiday cup sleeves which, along with the regular cup, are eligible for priority boarding. These airports include SFO, ATL, and MSP.
All Alaska Airlines and Horizon (operated by Alaska) flights are eligible for priority boarding.
And for select flights on the West Coast, everyone will receive a free Starbucks reusable cup and a $5 Starbucks gift card.
Even the plane will be decked out in the Christmas spirit with a holiday-themed design!

The Bald Thoughts
What a fun way to kick off the holiday season. I love Christmas and spending time with friends and family. Normally, I wish that we could finish celebrating Thanksgiving before jumping ahead to Christmas. But it is hard to fault people for wanting to spread Christmas cheer with fun ideas like this Starbucks Alaska Airlines Promotion.
