Michelle's Markdowns: Free Starbucks coffee for a month

WILMINGTON, NC (WSFX) - If you love Starbucks coffee, then you'll love checking out some great deals going on during the next few days.

The coffee-giant is celebrating the holidays with a 12 Days of Christmas kind-of-thing.  Today was the first day and gave customers free coffee during the month of January IF they bought a tumbler.

Of course, there's a catch.  The tumbler set people back about $20, but if you get coffee everyday, then it's a good purchase.

I spend more than two dollars for a plain coffee with flavoring.  I don't know if Gift #12 is worth it for me, but I'm going to check back everyday to see what deals will be up my alley.  And, I should warn you.  The deal for today has been SOLD OUT, but check back again tomorrow!
