While August is still summer, it never stops us from enjoying the start of Pumpkin Spice Season. Starbucks officially brought back their Pumpkin Spice Lattes (and more fall flavors) on Aug. 24, 2023. The PSL is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and select Starbucks locations are gave away free PSL-themed temporary tattoos on Oct. 10 to celebrate, if you purchased a PSL (hot, iced, or blended). The PSL was first developed by Starbucks in 2003 and they’ve reportedly sold more than 600 million of them since (at least 100 million of those have been consumed by the KCL staff).

Here’s everything to know about the return of the Starbucks PSL, the cost, and what’s new for the Starbucks fall menu 2023, including two new drinks and one baked good! It’s all only available for a limited time, so be sure to get it before the next seasonal drinks roll in.

The Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte arrived on Aug. 24.

Starbucks has been releasing their famous PSL on the last Tuesday in August since 2018 — except in 2021. That year they released it on the second-to-last Tuesday (always keeping us guessing). They changed up the formula again this year, 2023, by releasing it on Thursday, August 24, 2023 along with the Starbucks Fall Cups.

If historical data is your thing, here are the PSL release dates from the last eight years:

  • 2022: Tuesday, Aug. 30
  • 2021: Tuesday, Aug. 24
  • 2020: Tuesday, Aug. 25
  • 2019: Tuesday, Aug. 27
  • 2018: Tuesday, Aug. 28
  • 2017: Friday, Sept. 1
  • 2016: Tuesday, Sept. 6
  • 2015: Tuesday, Sept. 8


The PSL typically costs between $5 and $6 — but you can get it for free.

At my location, you can get a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte for $5.95 for a grande, but before you order your first PSL of the season you should make sure to sign up for Starbucks Rewards. You get your first drink free, and then you earn two stars for every $1 you spend at Starbucks.

Once you earn 200 stars (spend $100), get a free handcrafted drink, which includes the Pumpkin Spice Latte and the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew. You also get a freebie on your birthday for all of you Fall babies.

That’s like getting 5.5% back. If you want to boost your savings, split a Venti (20 ounces) and share it with someone (get an extra cup). If you do that instead of ordering two Tall PSLs, you’ll save roughly $3.25 — although prices vary by location.

Unfortunately, the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte will be more expensive this year.

Not even the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte is immune to the Starbucks price increases. The price for a Pumpkin Spice Latte costs around $5.95, depending on your location. Last year, you could have gotten a PSL for $5.45 (depending on your Starbucks location) which makes this an 8% price difference.


Free Starbucks PSL Temporary Tattoo sheets were available on Oct. 10 if you bought a PSL (hot, iced or blended).

The official 20th Anniversary of the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte was on Oct. 10, and to celebrate the occasion, you could have gotten a FREE temporary tattoo sheet at participating Starbucks locations if you purchased a PSL (hot, iced or blended). Locations only had a limited number of sheets.

Looking for more ways to celebrate the Pumpkin Spice Latte? Starbucks teamed up with KidSuper Studios to give us a Pumpkin Spice-inspired varsity jacket that you can preorder on Oct. 10 at 8 a.m. PDT (or 11 a.m. EST) at KidSuper.com/TeamPSL for $295. Plus, members of Starbucks Odyssey who have at least one stamp can explore a fall-themed virtual world until Oct. 31.
