Update: A few of our readers have said Starbucks locations in Toronto are not giving out free drinks, however if you use text ‘Blonde’ to 81818, you’ll get a free tall blonde coffee! 

If you love Starbucks coffee you’re in luck today. We have to be upfront no one from the StyleDemocracy team can confirm this, but supposedly due to a computer glitch, Starbucks is handing out FREE drinks all day because they are unable to accept electronic currency.

There have been numerous Twitter reports that this glitch is real, and because Starbucks doesn’t really know what else to do, they are handing out free drinks!


Reports from Vancity Buzz state that some locations are only giving out the smallest size drinks for free, or restricting free beverages to only coffee and tea.

If any of our readers can confirm this we’d love to hear it!
