Were you one of the lucky few that got your hands on the new Starbucks Color-Changing Reusable Cold Cups this week? If not we’ve got a tip for you! Word on the street is that select Starbucks stores will be restocking them by Wednesday! The cups seem to be sold out almost everywhere and are selling for a fortune on ebay! Don’t forget to check your local Target if there’s a Starbucks located inside. These cups are so fun and each box is priced at $16.95 and comes with 5 reusable BPA-free 24 oz cups and 5 straws.

How much do they cost and where can I get them?
With each set of five cups, lids and straws going for $16.95, it might not surprise Starbucks devotees that the reusable cup packs are already sold out across the country. (Remember when people went crazy for the Starbucks + ban.do merch?) But never fear: Starbucks will be restocking the color-changing cups soon.
It’s not clear exactly when they’ll be back in stores, but it’s worth keeping an eye on things at your local Starbucks. The cups should be restocked any day now, according to a reply from the official Starbucks Twitter account.
What colors are included?
The official colors for the cups are rose, citron, sky, apricot and arctic. Some of the color changes, like rose, stay within the same color family, changing from pink to red. Others create a more drastic effect! The arctic cups change from teal to pink. And the aptly named citron cups change from yellow to green, a perfect lemon-lime effect.
Even if you can’t get your hands on the cups, though, there’s still a silver lining. Any reusable cup (hot or cold) will get you a 10-cent discount off your Starbucks drink. It doesn’t have to be Starbucks-branded, either—any travel mug will do.
Of course, reducing plastic and paper waste, plus getting a discount, should be enough of a draw on its own. But you really can’t beat the allure of the Instagram-ready look of the Starbucks color-changing cups! After all, what better vessel is there for a Game of Thrones-inspired Dragon Drink?
