Get half-priced beverages at Starbucks’ new revamped Happy Hour on Thursday, March 29, but first, you’ll need an invitation to the party.
The event starts at 3 p.m. to closing, offering 50 percent off any size or flavor Frappuccino, espresso and iced tea at participating stores.
Starbucks is changing the popular promotion by requiring a ring code at the register found in the invitation. Starbucks Reward members have already received invitations loaded to their accounts. Nonmembers can go to Starbucks.com/HappyHour to get an invite with a code.
In the past, the popular Happy Hour usually lasted a few days and no codes were necessary. Now, the company says it will be offering more frequent events and offers in the spring and summer. Customers will be notified via the Starbucks app or email.
Other changes: Customers who log on to WiFi in stores will be asked to provide a one-time email address so they can be notified of news, deals and offers, according to a news release.
