Free coffee for the holidays? Starbucks is making is so, but the Seattle-based company is making you work for it online.

Starbucks’ “Pop-Up Cheer Parties” are a movable feast, taking place every day (except Christmas) from now through Jan. 2, from 1 to 2 p.m.

The catch is that the parties are scheduled in only 100 locations across the country each day, and you have to check the website to find out where they’re happening.

When it’s party time, customers can get one free tall espresso beverage, plus a Cheer Card that feature special offers ranging from 50 percent off a Holiday Space flat white to a free holiday cookie with the purchase of a handcrafted beverage. The Cheer Card offers are redeemable through Jan. 2.
