If this is considered a pre-deal until noon, please let me know so I can update the rules

I had the opportunity to try both flavours Wednesday at the free sampling table at my local 'Bux.
Cool Lime Starbucks Refreshers™ Beverage - Somewhat like a weak mojito. Watery, a bit sweet but also a bit bitter, and generally meh.
Very Berry Hibiscus Refreshers™ Beverage - YUM! Similar to a VitaminWater, refreshing, not too strong or sweet, fruity.
I'll certainly be going back for my free Tall Very Berry today between noon and 3.

put some light rum in the green stuff
put some vodka in the red stuff

tastes pretty good.... had two pitchers setup at a poker party last night

These drinks are an experience. They're made with green coffee, so you doesn't change the flavor, but you get the perk of the natural caffeine.

Ask for a splash of lemonade or pump or two raspberry or coconut syrup for an even different experience!
(The Cool Lime refresher with 1 pump of Coconut tastes like a mojito that'll wake you up rather than make you tipsy.)

They were out in Manhattan, on the Upper East Side, back in March, and, to be completely honest, they are not that good!!!!!!!! They need more fruit flavoring, and more carbonation! Plus the red one has an after-taste!!! I was not the only one that voiced that same thing, that day! They asked for our opinion! I think they are about the same as Hansen's similar offering... Hansen's is actually a little better, and significantly less expensive! My take is they will be pulled off of the market, IF they don't offer them in a larger size, and significantly improve the taste!

I really want to go and get this right now.

@ofcourse47: maybe they're better out here because they're great!!

I really love the Very Berry Hibiscus. It's sweet and refreshing and doesn't have that many calories and no added sugar. I get mine with easy water and extra, extra berries. Yum!!!!!!!

@lichme: I like doing it just the way you did it here. The deal is today, so you posted it today, but you also noted the time of the deal in the headline, so that people waking up early for work can note when, throughout the day, to snag the deal.
Hopefully the staff will agree too :)

If this deal isn't allowed becasue it isn't happening yet it is insane. People who work should be able to plan their lunch break around this if they want to, or plan to swing by between meetings. It is day of. BTW I ordered the Berry one yesterday and it was very good, the lime one was in a sample cup, I had one sip and threw it away it was dreadful.

Won't be able to swing by a Starbucks during the offer period, they are offering the 5 pack Via versions for half price today as well

I think it'd be better if the rules were updated to specify an amount of time that a deal can be posted before it actually becomes live, mainly because some deals go live right at midnight. Also, I'm not entirely in agreement with having to wait for the day that the deal is live to be able to post it. As is the case with http://deals.woot.com/deals/details/7e51e2ec-d73f-4780-80bf-661fa0328e40/chick-fil-a-cow-appreciation-day#46, there are deals that you necessarily have to plan for (unless I'm the only one that doesn't have cow attire at the ready).

@lobstrain: I agree I posted this same deal At 10 pm last night and it was removed. I think 24 hours prior should be fine personally

Handcrafted!!! I love the ridiculous terms that companies throw around to try to drum up business. I'll wait until it's a 'Luxury' handcrafted free drink, thank you very much!

@pleepleus: "Luxury" would turn away the hipsters. Who ironically drink Luxury coffee whether it's called so or not.

@ofcourse47: is your period key broken? you ended every sentence with an exclaimation point...
