What a year it's been. It honestly feels like it's been 5 years but nope, it's just 2020. This year more than ever I think we all gained a new level of appreciation for everybody who helps make our day to day lives function. When everything shut down, we all got the chance to see just how many jobs are essential to everyday life.

Starbucks is making sure frontline workers feel some love for their important work being done in the fight against COVID-19. They're offering a free tall brewed coffee (hot or iced) to frontline responders, also characterized as "essential employees," at participating U.S. Starbucks stores in December.

Starbucks has actually given more than 2 million free cups of coffee to frontline workers this year and donated more than $1 million in support of frontline responders since March. And this holiday season, the giving continues. So who is eligible for this offer?

According to ACB7 -

The offer is available to those who work as health care providers, doctors, nurses, public health workers, pharmacists, dispatchers, firefighters, paramedics, police officers, dentists and dental hygienists, mental health workers (therapist, psychologist, social worker, counselor, etc.), hospital staff such as janitor/housekeeping/security, and active-duty military.

So if you're in one of those fields make sure you're taking advantage of this offer. The offer is available in store or online for pick up or delivery. Use the FREECOFFEEE code online.

Also, just want to note, I think every human who has worked throughout this pandemic deserves a million free cups of coffee.
