How To Get An Entire Month Of FREE Starbucks Coffee

One of my usual New Year’s resolutions is to try and save more money in the upcoming year. One expense that always chips away at my wallet is the constant need to stay caffeinated in the mornings or after lunch. Maybe I should get more sleep? Nah, coffee’s fine.

Coffee fiends like me looking to save some hard-earned moolah will want to check out Starbucks’ Brewed Refill Tumbler that can be purchased at participating stores in the United States. Customers who buy the tumbler will receive free coffee throughout the month of January 2019.

All you have to do is present the tumbler to a barista at a participating location for one free grande (16 fluid ounces) of either brewed hot coffee or brewed hot tea between January 1 through January 31, 2019.

While the tumbler costs $40, a month of free coffee (at $2.45) costs approximately $75.95 before taxes – and you get a sweet insulated mug out of it.

In the long run, you’re saving. Especially if you’re a habitual coffee drinker.

Those looking to get their hands on one of these stainless steel coffee tumblers can find them at participating Starbucks stores now while supplies last.

Coffee Shop Expertly Trolls Customers Into Being More Polite

With app ordering, and even curbside service, big coffee shops like Starbucks keep incorporating ways to get you in and out with as little human interaction as possible. However, this little Roanoke, VA shop is encouraging the opposite.

In a hilarious attempt to get its customers to interact, or at the very least be polite, Cups Coffee & Tea put up a deal that benefited those who said more than just “One small coffee.”

The deal was those who mindlessly ordered their coffee in that manner had to pay $5. If they added a please, which should be the bare minimum anyway, the coffee price reduced to $3. If the customer went all out with their barista acknowledgement with, “Hello, I’d like one small coffee please,” the price dropped dramatically, to $1.75.

Not being a jerk pays off at this little coffee shop, and all it takes is a little common courtesy.

This Machine Will Turn Any Bottle Into A Reusable Glass

If you have a hard time letting go of your favorite beer bottles, there’s a machine that’ll let you hang on to them forever. It just takes a quick slice.

Since most beer bottles only allow for one use before having to be disposed of or recycled, there really isn’t much value in keeping the alcohol container around the house once your’e done with its contents.

However, the Kinkajou Bottle Cutter, by Bottle Cutting, will slice through your bottle and turn it into a reusable glass. You then just sand down the edges until safe enough for use. As you can see from the video, the process looks pretty painless.

You can buy the machine for about $49.99 here.

These Hexagonal Beer Pong Cups Will Change Beer Pong Forever

Two party animals-turned-mechanical-engineers named William Heimsoth and Aaron Attebery may have just changed the beer pong landscape with these new hexagonal additions to the game.

By giving the cups their hexagonal shape, Heimsoth and Attebery have successfully eliminated any wasted space that came from the tiny voids between the round cups. Even beyond the new and improved functionality of these cups, their aesthetic presentation alone is enough to warrant a purchase. There’s just something so satisfying about things fitting perfectly into other things.

The cups are also hydrodynamic in design, preventing them from sliding around all over the table when you inevitably play that one guy who has no arc and fires lasers directly at the cups. Heimsoth and Attebery made sure to not only design the cups to create perfect, efficient shapes and racks, but to also serve other highly valuable functions. They’re washable and reusable, making the $15 price tag a lot more understandable and reasonable.

The Hexcups boast a patent pending mold made with stronger, reinforced plastic. So when that laser-shooting dickhead starts smacking cups off the table because he lost, you won’t have to worry about random cracks in the cups.

Even if the Hexcups are bent, they can be popped back into place, assuming the damage is mostly on the surface. The image below shows the damage that occurred after clearly rolling over each cup with a car. Pretty cool, huh?

Being the undisputed beer pong champion that I am, I can say that I look forward to decimating my enemies with these cups. So what do you say, nerds? Any challengers?

This Is Reese’s Brilliant Response To Fans Shaming Their Christmas Tree Chocolates

This year, Reese’s fans took to social media to express their dissatisfaction with the brand’s holiday Christmas Tree candy. What was supposed to look like a Christmas Tree ended up looking like a piece poop. Literally.

Reese’s, however, took the response like a pro and replied with this image posted on their Twitter account.

A genius move on Reese’s social team’s part. Kind of shuts down every complaint of how the trees look from here on.
