How do I get a free hot drink at Costa?

Anyone who signs up to the Costa app will get 300 points instantly added to their account.

For those who have already registered, the 300 points will be automatically applied.

Customers can then spend these points - equivalent to £3 - on any hot drink of their choice, including a flat white or cappuccino. Although prices will vary depending on your location, most hot drinks are typically under £3.

You will need to sign up to the app, which is free, in order to be able to get your free drink.

You must complete your registration to get the offer, which involves inputting personal details, such as your name and email address.

The Costa Coffee Club app can be downloaded on the App Store or Google Play.

How long is the deal on for?

Anyone who signs up to the app from Monday 6 July to Friday 31 July 2020 will get 300 points added to their account.

Can I spend the points on anything else?

If you’re not in the mood for a drink, your free points can also be redeemed against any food purchase.

Costa says that the points will remain on any account for 12 months.

Where can I spend the points?

You can spend the points in-store or at any drive through branch.

Costa stores reopening

Costa has been reopening its branches in stages since 24 April for takeaway, drive through or home delivery orders, via Uber Eats, after temporarily closing all of its stores on March 23 due to the lockdown.

The chain is now preparing to reopen 2,000 of its stores by the end of July.

Neil Lake, managing director of Costa Coffee UK&I, said, “We have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback from our customers as we begin to re-open our stores.

“As we near our next key milestone of 2000+ store re-openings by the end of July, we’re delighted to treat Costa Coffee fans to a handcrafted drink, on us.”
