Back in May 2023, Starbucks first teamed up with Stanley to create a limited-edition, Target-exclusive, peach-pink Stanley Adventure Quencher Tumbler for $44.95. Since then we’ve seen more Starbucks Stanley drops — with the winter pink Starbucks Stanley cup causing mass chaos at Target retailers nationwide on January 3, 2024 — and the NEWEST Summer 2024 Stanley Starbucks Quencher hits Starbucks Cafés and Target locations on June 25, 2024.

As we celebrate a year’s worth of these coffee tumbler collabs, it's no longer rare to see a new Stanley with each seasonal drop. And we've got tips on how to get $20 off and how to actually find one in stock.

The Next Starbucks Stanley Tumblers: 2024 Release Dates


As predicted, the newest Summer Lime Green Stanley is now available at both Starbucks Cafés and Target locations.

If you visit your Starbucks Café and they're sold out, consider taking a trip to your local Target store. I stopped by my local Target in Washington, PA around 9 a.m. this morning and they still had 14 cups available at the Guest Services area.

The first summer Starbucks Stanley was a yellow and pink chrome ombré design and hit shelves on May 7, 2024 with a price tag of $54.95.

Unlike the pink winter cup which was only available at Target, the new summer Starbucks Stanley cups have been available at Starbucks Café locations as well as Starbucks located in Target stores.

Past Starbucks x Stanley Cup Releases

Starbucks x Stanley Release Timeline June 25 2024

As mentioned, we saw the first Starbucks and Stanley release in May of 2023. On May 9, 2023, the much-anticipated peachy pink cup hit shelves with a $44.95 price tag. And it sold out within minutes in both Starbucks Cafés and Target Starbucks locations. 

Six months later — in November 2023 — a cherry-colored Starbucks Stanley cup arrived on shelves. This holiday red tumbler was priced at $49.95. Despite its hefty price tag, customers lined up outside Starbucks locations to buy one. 

And then just two months after that, along with the Starbucks Winter Menu release on Jan. 3, 2024, the $49.95 winter pink Starbucks Stanley Cup release at Target caused mass chaos. It ended with in-store fights, long lines, and Target setting a rule of 1 cup per person, per day. This is likely why the Summer Sunset Gradient Stanley x Starbucks cup was available in both Starbucks Cafés and Target locations and why we'll see the same thing for the lime green tumbler.

Starbucks Stanley Cups: Why Are They So Popular? 

We’ve seen lines out the door, fist fights, and even people charging $10 for a picture with their Starbucks Pink Stanley Cup — what gives with this trend?

First, let’s look at the construction of the tumblers. Stanley is a well-known brand that has been around since 1913. In 2016 they released the Quencher H2.0 Flowstate Tumbler which has become a viral hit, particularly with Gen Z. These tumblers are so popular for four big reasons.

  • Durability: The stainless steel construction resists dents, scratches, and corrosion.

  • Insulation: Their double-walled vacuum insulation keeps drinks hot for up to seven hours or cold for up to 11 hours. 

  • Size: The 40-ounce capacity is large enough for any favorite hot or cold beverage — coffee, tea, cocktails, or just plain water. 

  • Versatility: These tumblers are designed to be dishwasher safe and have a tight-fitting lid, straw, and comfortable handle. Their shape fits in cup holders and makes them convenient for travel.

But what’s so special about Starbucks Stanley tumblers in particular? Besides the lettering along the side that represents the collaboration between brands with hugely loyal fanbases — Starbucks and Stanley — the limited availability contributes to their popularity. In a word, they’re viral. The tumblers found only at Target Starbucks locations are even more rare and hard to find. In fact, the Pink Starbucks Stanley Cup was sold in-store at Target only and each store had between 3 and 38 cups available. Which is why collectors lined up early to get ’em.

Another reason for those long lines? You’re not just waiting in line alongside other Stanley enthusiasts and collectors. You’re also competing with resellers. Yep, resellers make a pretty penny by selling rare colors on eBay or Facebook Marketplace. For example, one Target watercolor cup, originally $45, sold for $100 on Facebook Marketplace. Others are listed for as much as $350!
