Starbucks Brings the Pumpkin Spice Latte Back with a Facebook Contest

Posted Aug 18, 2011

It’s almost that time of year again, the magical season of the Pumpkin Spice Latte that brings fanatics to Starbucks in droves. To amp up the excitement, the coffee giant is using Facebook to host a social marketing contest. The challenge and its companion app will be revealed on the Starbucks Facebook Page on Monday, reports Mashable. The contest will pit cities against each other, and the winning city gets the Pumpkin Spice Latte a week before its official release date.

The teaser page currently invites fans to “come back on Aug 22, (in your favorite sweater), join the fun, and show us why fall and Pumpkin Spice Latte should arrive in your city early this year.” The contest will last until the 26th of August, and the winners get their PSLs on the 30th.
