Coffee shops across the country are slowly reopening, making sure stores can meet social distancing guidelines. Now Costa Coffee is offering a free cup of coffee as the UK gets back on track – and here’s how you can grab one.
Costa has pledged to open all of its stores by the end of July and to celebrate from Monday, July 6, customers can get a free coffee of their choice.
The offer is available to both current Costa Coffee Club members and to newly registered users.
Both will receive 300 points which is equivalent to £3, which you can spend on a drink of your choice in any participating Costa Coffee store.
All you need to do is claim the offer via the Costa Coffee Club mobile app.

Whether you’ve wanted a classic Americano, Cappuccino, Costa’s signature Flat White or even an indulgent Hot Chocolate, use your Costa points to grab the coffee you’ve been craving.
And if you don’t want to buy a drink, you can redeem your points for breakfast pastries, sweet treats like Millionaire’s shortbread or even a sandwich.
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.

“To ensure both our customers and team members are safe we have introduced some new measures across our estate, while also maintaining the warm environment that we know they have been missing.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone through our doors to enjoy their favourite Costa Coffee drink!”
With the Costa app you can also order ahead, using the mobile ordering service.
Super Saturday saw pubs, bars and restaurants open their doors for the first time since March, with many heading out to celebrate this weekend.
Lockdown conditions have been in place since March 23, and while some restrictions remain in place, Saturday was the first time pubs, bars, restaurants, cinemas and hotels could open.
The hospitality experience will have changed from what many of us knew before lockdown, with plastic screens between tables, mobile ordering encouraged and contact information taken for those visiting.
Costa has been slowly reopening stores over the past few weeks and reopened 1,100 of its more than 2,000 stores by the end of June.
After a trial of 75 locations in April, more cafes have opened their doors since.
These include all drive-thru locations and some takeaway and delivery branches.
Drive-thru locations have been fitted with devices to lower drinks down to customers, limiting contact between barista and driver.
Some stores do remain closed, and Costa said on Instagram: “We’re working hard to get more open each week so thanks for being patient.”
