Starbucks discount food after 4pm.
Mercato, a selection of grab-and-go salads, sandwiches and sides was launched in Chicago in April. While I was at Starbucks the other day I saw a sign for $4 food after 4pm. I called a few Starbucks and most have the same deal. It’s hit-or-miss what will be available as essentially they’re just unloading whatever wasn’t purchased at lunch.
Save around $1-$6
Prices probably vary but they have salads, sandwiches, fruit and cheese options and more. Regular prices range from around $5 to $10. Clearly the biggest money-saving purchases would be a $10 salad for $4.
The few that I called that participate are:
1003 N. Rush
111 E. Chestnut
333 N. Michigan
200 N. Michigan
Here’s some menu items listed on the Starbucks website
