Been There – Montreal

Starbucks Been There Montreal mug is finally in town! I have to admit I was wrong about the design of this particular mug. It looks so much better in reality. It looks amazing. I really like it.
The full review will come soon, but for now, I can tell you, I don’t see Notre-Dame Basilica, which I find weird. Nonetheless there are so many other things to discover on this mug. Stay tuned.
As a bonus, the photo of Montreal and Quebec together:

Been There City Error Mugs

This is the post for all US Been There Cities with errors. For States with misprints, see this recent post.
Based on initial rumors, the following city mugs were expected, but had not been released along with other BTs: Boston, San Diego, Charlotte, Atlanta, Detroit and Los Angeles. Only two of them have been finally confirmed to be misprints, please see below. Please note, that even though San Diego is also out, there is no confirmation whether it is v1 or v2.… Read more

Been There State Error Mugs

Since there was a lot of confusion around misprints found on Been There mugs, I believe it makes sense to consolidate all the information about them in one post.
Let me start with a little bit of history. We’ve seen misprints in the past. A very good example can be Montréal and Quebéc mugs, where the version with accent quickly replaced the one without accent. Those two mugs are pretty expensive now, but many collectors don’t consider this to be a different version and don’t even bother getting it.… Read more

Been There – San Diego

A previously delayed, Starbucks Been There San Diego mug has been spotted in stores. At this point, I can only guess what was the reason for the delay. This can easily be the v2 and we are yet to discover if there was the v1 and what was the misprint.… Read more

Been There – Los Angeles 2

Here’s another “delayed” city mug for you guys: Starbucks Been There Los Angeles 2. And yes, it is different from previously posted LA version 1 Here is the picture of two mugs side by side:

The actual misprint is “City of The Angels” instead of “City of Angels”. Way too many errors in this series… Do you agree? It almost makes me think this was done on purpose. … Read more

Been There – Boston 2

Thanks to my amazing reader, I have this exclusive news to share with you. Here’s Starbucks Been There Boston v2 mug. Wait, what? You heard it right – this is version 2 of the previously posted Boston mug. Here’s the comparison picture for you:

I know, these photos are really blurry, but we can still see, that v1 has “Boston Commons” on the back of the mug instead of “Boston Common” found on v2. Ironically this is a very common mistake made by tourists and non-locals.… Read more

Been There – North Dakota 2

I’ve got some exclusive photos from one of the collectors and I hasten to share them with you. Here’s Starbucks Been There North Dakota v2 mug brand new and improved. Specifically, Starbucks fixed the error it made for “Geographical Center of North America” monument installed in Rugby, ND (see side-by-side photos). I also find it very amusing, that the picture of the monument was made smaller in order for it to be moved up North on the map of the US.… Read more

Been There – Montana 2

The second, fixed version of recently revealed mug, Starbucks Been There Montana 2 is out! As a reminder, the misprint was on the front of the mug. It is now saying “Bitterroot” instead of “Bitteroot”. We can only guess how many mugs with error were produced, and what’s more important, how many were sold.
Update from 2018-05-19: please see side-by-side comparison of the front of the mugs, where the misprint is (missing ‘r’ in the Bitterroot word).

Been There – Denver

I somehow missed this mug, meanwhile Starbucks Been There Denver mug is being sold all across Colorado. From what I can see the mug is mostly dedicated to wildlife and outdoor activites, which makes complete sense since few places in North America offer such a bounty of wildlife-watching opportunities as Colorado and Denver area in particular. … Read more
