Update #2: DEAD!
Update: Just tried this on a few facebook accounts and have already transferred over all of the eGift cards to my regular Starbucks Gold Elite gift card.
Allow up to an hour to receive your gift card via email. You do not have to share the offer on your wall to get the gift card.
This is marketed as a “free Tall Blonde Roast” but in actuality you will get a $2.60 egift card that can be used on anything in Starbucks.
You can print up the egift card or transfer the funds to your existing Starbucks gift card by logging into your gift card account online.
Starbucks fan? If you have an Ink Bold, Ink Plus, Ink Cash, or Ink Classic card you can earn 5 Ultimate Rewards points (transferable to several airlines and hotels) per dollar spent by buying Starbucks gift cards at Office Depot, Office Max, or Staples.
It’s also worth noting some basic Starbucks spending strategies:
-Register your gift card. As long as you use it once you’ll get a free drink coupon every year for use around your birthday.
-Try not to purchase more than 1 item at a time. Starbucks gives elite status perks based on the number of times you use your registered gift card.
-After 5 transactions you get free refills on brewed or iced coffee and tea.
-After 30 transactions you get gold status and you start getting free drinks every 12 transaction. Remember if you are buying 2 drinks to order and pay for them separately to get more transactions in order to get free drinks faster!
