Starbucks "Cheer Chain" Coupon Revealed, Nation Mourns

Reader Hilary says, in response to our recent post about the various Starbucks “Cheer Chain” conspiracy theories:

Yes, actually it is a PR stunt. They’ve even provided coupons to kick it off. This one (scan attached) came from Esquire magazine, I believe.

Nooooooooooo, you mean they’re not even passing back a drink someone that someone actually paid for? They’re passing a BOGO coupon?

Good grief!
