There is a better way to get a free drink at Starbucks than giving a barista puppy dog eyes until they take pity on you and give you a leftover latte. It turns out the coffee giant has an incredible free refill policy, giving thirsty customers more drink for their buck.
Melody Overton, a Starbucks superfan and blogger, recently discussed the company's refill policy on her blog, and revealed it's a little bit tricky. But basically, if you order any drink on the menu (so not a bottled drink from the refrigerated case) and consume it in the store, once you're done, you're eligible for a free refill of any hot/iced coffee or hot/iced/shaken tea of the same size as your first drink. If you're someone who likes sitting in Starbucks to get work done or hang out, this is a great way to save a few dollars.
What this refill policy doesn't mean is that you can order a Frappuccino and get another Frappuccino once you're done. But you could potentially order a Frappuccino, and get a free iced tea if you're someone who doesn't want to have to choose between coffee and tea.
