Starbucks to give away free coffees to NHS and rail staff next week

Starbucks will be handing out free coffees to NHS and rail staff starting on Monday 14 December.

The US chain is keen to give back to those who have worked tirelessly throughout the event events of 2020.

All transport workers carrying a Rail Staff Travel (RST) card can order a free tall filter coffee from Starbucks.

The freebie is also available to NHS staff, first responders and care workers as long as they show their work identity card.

The free tall filter coffees, which typically cost from £1.60 each, are available from any Starbucks branch in England, Scotland or Wales for one week only.

Unfortunately, workers can only get one free coffee each at the chain.

To get it, you'll need to order it in person from your nearest Starbucks branch, as it's not available on mobile orders nor deliveries.

The amazing offer comes after it was revealed that Starbucks' Christmas drinks are more calorific than a McDonald's cheeseburger.

A cheeseburger from the popular fast food chain contains 313 calories – that’s less than you’ll find in a Starbucks Toffee Nut Latte, Costa Black Forest Hot Chocolate and Pret S'mores Hot Chocolate.

Meanwhile, a Greggs sausage roll contains 327 calories.

This is less calorific than the bakery chain’s Mint Hot Chocolate, which packs 334 calories and 14g of sugar.

Having said all this, you don’t need to ditch the Christmassy drinks completely.

It’s best to enjoy them in moderation and part of a healthy and balanced diet.

One TikTok user recently revealed a secret menu hack she uses to order The Santa Claus Frappuccino.

The delicious-looking beverage is a fun white and red mix with sprinkles on top.

To order one for yourself, you’ll need to ask for a vanilla bean creme Frappe.

However, you need to specify that you want them to alternate layers of Frappuccino and strawberry puree.
