Want to make your friends orange with envy? Starbucks is giving out super-secret codes to unlock an opportunity to try the pumpkin spice latte a whole four days before everyone else does on September 8.That said, it’s not that super-secret. After all, the quirky official Twitter account of the pumpkin spice latte tweeted out the secret coupon for all to see.
If you missed the tweet, you can get to the coupon unlock page here. All you have to do is type in “Pumpkin” (with a capital P), and you’ll be prompted to give your phone number. Once you type in your phone number, Starbucks will text you the “secret” promotional opportunity. Just show it to your barista, and he or she will get you that holy grail of fall-flavored drinks.
We imagine that this promotion will cause all sorts of ruckus in line from people who neglected to check their Twitter feeds this morning. In case your memory is hazy from lack of pumpkin-flavored caffeine, this year, the Starbucks PSL will contain real pumpkin for the first time (before, it was just lots of sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and other spices).
