Starbucks has always been known for the various discount promotions it runs to promote new and existing drinks when their respective seasons arrive. To help celebrate the pending arrival of summer, Starbucks is again offering half price cold frappuccino beverages between the hours of 3PM and 5PM — henceforth known as Frappuccino Happy Hour! As if we needed another reason to want to stop by for a delicious frappuccino, Starbucks!
The coffee giant has also launched Frappuccino.com to help with this and other promotions they will be running this summer for their signature cold drink line. Starbucks is encouraging customers who buy one of their discounted frappuccinos to snap a photo with their smartphone and either upload it to Instagram or tweet the photo with the hashtag #frappuccinohappyhour to be eligible to win a series of prizes including $25 Starbucks cards and a trip to the MTV OMA’s.
In order to add an additional level of interest to the photo contest, Starbucks has created daily challenges to direct some of the photography that they are asking customers to send in. For example, the theme for May 8th is to include your frappuccino in a photo that depicts an iconic landmark within your home city. Starbucks will be basing their judging on these daily challenges as they choose winners for both the Twitter and Instagram photo contest.
More details on the various Frappuccino Happy Hour promotion details, including a full breakdown of each daily photo challenge, can be found now at either Starbucks.com or Frappuccino.com. Be sure to be on the lookout for our Green Tea Frappuccinos on Instagram next week!
