Grab any reusable cup and head to Starbucks — not only will you save 10 cents on every order by using a reusable cup, you'll get 25 bonus stars and a chance to try two new additions to the Starbucks winter menu. As of Jan. 30 Starbucks welcomed the new Chocolate Hazelnut Cookie Cold Brew and the Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Créme Frappuccino to the lineup, along with the return of the Starbucks Oleato drinks. However, these new drinks are pricey (and saving a dime on your order doesn't sound too hot). But we've got a couple tips to save you between $0.30 and $1 per drink if you order them a little differently.

Here are all the details on the new menu drops, what the new items will cost you, and how to save on Starbucks this month. So, go ahead and enjoy one of the new drinks — looking at you, Paradise Drink Refresher with Oleato Golden Foam!

Two new Valentine's Day Starbucks drinks arrived on Jan. 30, and you can order one for $0.30 less than full price.

Say hi to two new cold drinks. As of Tuesday, Jan. 30, you'll see these on your menu:

  • Chocolate Hazelnut Cookie Cold Brew ($5.25 for Grande): Cold Brew sweetened with hazelnut and topped with a chocolaty-cream cold foam and chocolate cookie crumble.

  • Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Créme Frappuccino ($6.25 for Grande): Strawberry puree and Frappuccino chocolate chips with milk and ice, layered with strawberry puree and topped with whipped cream.

At $5.25, the new cold brew is on par with other cold brew prices. But at $6.25, the new Créme Frappuccino seems a little steep. We took a look at the ingredients, and it's identical to a Strawberry Crème Frappuccino, but with added chocolate chips.

Savings Tip: If you order the Strawberry Crème Frappuccino, it's $5.45. Add chocolate chips for $0.50 and your total is $5.95, $0.30 less than ordering the Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Créme Frappuccino. Don't forget to use ANY reusable cup to get an extra 10 cents off that order, plus 25 bonus stars. You can only do that hack if you are a Starbucks Rewards member, which is free to join.

The Oleato drinks returned on January 30, and you can order one for $1 less.

Savings Tip: Order a Grande Shaken Espresso with Blonde Espresso Roast, and ask to substitute the Classic Syrup for Toffeenut syrup. Add Oleato Golden Foam and you have the same Oleato Golden Foam Iced Shaken Espresso with Toffeenut, but instead of paying $7.45, you pay $6.45 — a whole dollar less. Save 10 cents with your reusable cup! Here's the drinks and prices added to the winter menu:

  • Oleato Oatmilk Latte ($5.75 for Grande): Blonde espresso with Partanna extra virgin olive oil infused oatmilk, light foam on top.

  • Oleato Golden Foam Iced Shaken Espresso with Toffeenut ($7.45 for Grande): Blonde espresso with Partanna extra-virgin olive oil and toffeenut infused foam.

  • Iced Chai Tea Latte with Oleato Golden Foam ($7.45 for Grande): Black tea infused with cinnamon, clove and other spices with milk and ice. Topped with Partanna extra virgin olive oil infused cold foam.

  • Iced Matcha Tea Latte with Oleato Golden Foam ($7.25 for Grande): Creamy matcha lightly sweetened and served with milk over ice. Topped with Partanna® extra virgin olive oil infused cold foam.

  • Paradise Drink Refresher Beverage with Oleato Golden Foam ($7.25 for Grande): Tropical pineapple and passionfruit with diced pineapple and creamy coconut milk. Topped with Partanna extra virgin olive oil infused cold foam.

  • Dragon Drink Refresher Beverage with Oleato Golden Foam ($7.25 for Grande): Mango and dragonfruit flavors hand-shaken with creamy coconut milk, ice and a scoop of real diced dragonfruit. Topped with Partanna extra virgin olive oil infused cold foam.

The initial Starbucks winter menu hit earlier this month on Jan. 3, with prices starting at $3.25.

Here’s what we saw post-holidays:

You can get the Starbucks Winter Menu items free with Starbucks Rewards & reusable cups.

If you’re not getting free Starbucks by earning Starbucks Rewards Stars, you’re missing out. And if you don’t use a Starbucks reusable cup every time you get a drink at Starbucks, you’re not earning those Stars nearly as quickly as you could be.

You see, every time you bring your reusable cup to Starbucks, you get 10 cents off, but you also get 25 Stars added to your account. Do that just four times and you’ve earned 200 Stars — which will get you most of the Starbucks Winter Menu items for free for one order.
