Spoiler alert, there's no catch, it's really free! But only on November 2nd.  Earlier this year we heard that Starbucks plans on eventually eliminating straws.  But until then, the company is doing everything they can to have a positive impact on the environment.  So what're they doing this holiday season?  They want to make sure you have a reusable cup to use for the rest of the year.

So, how does one get this free reusable cup? According to Bustle -

If you order your favorite holiday beverage on Nov. 2, you’ll get your free, limited-edition reusable cup in that ever-so-fetching shade of iconic Starbucks red. Seriously, all you have to do is order that Peppermint Mocha you've been craving since last year, and you'll get yourself a reusable cup (while supplies last, of course). Additionally, if you visit a Starbucks store from Nov. 3 through Jan. 7, and purchase a beverage with your trusty reusable cup after 2 pm, you’ll also receive 50 cents off your drink order.
