Starbucks Star Codes Linky

Login to your Starbucks account and click on the link above to enter in the following codes will each give you 5 free stars:
MCATALINK
MCATALINL
MCATALINM
MCATALINH

You can only use 2 codes per day.  I used 2 of these last night and the 10 stars are already in my account.  They say the stars can take up to 24 hours to post.  I entered in the 3rd code today and expect to see those stars by tomorrow.

The stars renewed my gold status and gave me a free drink.

I haven’t been to Starbucks since getting a deal on the DeLonghi Nespresso latte machine. (It got a shout-out from Rafi’s music idol as well). Didn’t think I’d renew my gold status this year, but these codes did it.

Amazing, thanks Dan! I’m sitting in Starbucks right now and I just got the text from your twitter about this.

al613

Oops, something is wrong; please try again later. (MSG-S0047)

?

how do i do this on the starbucks app?

littleStock

Awesome! PSA: always double check the kashrus status before buying ANYTHING from Starbucks

Yoel

@al613 im getting the same message

David

The first two did not work for me, the third did. Maybe there’s a limit on number of uses.

Anonymous

Only 1 of the 3 codes worked for me

star

dead!!!

Yehuda M

@al613: Getting the same message; not working for me either

?

Not working for me (already Gold). Targetted?

Zalman Friedman

The codes aren’t working for me, keeps just saying: Oops, something is wrong; please try again later. (MSG-S0047)

yossi

Here is another one MCATALINK

Ivy

thanks! Code, MCATALINK; is getting the message: You have reached the daily limit for Star code redemption tries. Please try later.

MeirS

I would think the earlier works in the favor of most readers, (those who don’t get annoyed by spending 5 minutes to get a free trip to HI and then see that it’s dead)

YG

Dan- I say post before verifying. The worst that can happen is we wasted 10 minutes trying.

jack

dan your epic I would say post before verification to increase the chances by decreasing the time lapse from when the deal started. PLEASE DONT FOCUS ON THE NAY SAYERS.

Tim

Dan, why must people always be angry ?

Yitz

@Dan
IMHO Depends on the post. If it’s a airline glitch that won’t last 60 seconds just throw it out there and let the haters hate! Starbucks codes aren’t exactly going anywhere quickly..

Tim

The internet sure has brought out peoples ugly side!

billy

@dan maybe post if you verified the deal…

Yagwej

Not dead. Keep submitting…will usually work after a few tries.

DoGo

Depends on the “value”/”effort” of the deal.

How?

@Yagwej
Are you doing anything specific? Browser? Case sensistive? PC? Mobile? i tried every possible combination of those and getting same error as everyone else?

TalkingFish

Time is really of the essence when it comes to internet deals. Post away I say!

Dan

It’s easy to say post away, but how many angry people would be commenting had I posted this last night and then the stars didn’t post?

“Dan why are you posting fake deals”
Etc…

jeremy

the good outweighs the bad. and your site definitely has a bunch of great deals. if we click, we know that it may be dead already or soon. why must people be so angry? nothing ventured, nothing gained. I always say itw worth a shot!

thanks for always posting such awesome deals!

SEG

I like what you do now… post only things that you check out beforehand (ie. that it’s real) otherwise why post it?

Typically, you fully explain what the promo is so we can judge if it’s something we want to do… if it’s a promo we’re entitled to.

In this case, there was no info. given about the codes.

Yitz

@Dan
I called starbucks customer service and she told me those particular codes are known fake circulating codes not produced by starbucks. Im not sure how some people here got it to work if that is true, but just a hint, she gave me a free complimentary star for my “trouble” with all this. Just call and be polite!

Dan

@SEG:
Someone posted the codes on DDF yesterday.
I didn’t know what they were so I tested it myself. It said it would take 24 hours.

As soon as they actually posted to my account I rechecked DDF where others reported this morning that they were still working. But by the time I posted this it seems like it they died.

Jacksassonbk

Got one from ddf early this morning

@Dan:

I think now a good time to stress to people to browse the ddf as well as the site.

me

I like ur site cuz i know all ur deals are verified… You can always join ddf to c the deals earlier…

Mike

They worked this morning . I used them.
At least we didn’t get an email saying Orbitz cant honor the Starbucks deal!!!

aaa

thx for everything – about posting before its verified, well, i think dogo (22) is right but u could always add “unconfirmed” or something like it
anyway as u say ppl would give angry comments either way, but others would still benefit from your work
shkoach for all your great work!

JS

Dan – thanks for what you do..how can people be upset if a promo etc doesn’t work…you can’t be expected to verify everything, and sometimes by the time the deal is verified it may be dead…..so a disclaimer, kind of the way you do sometimes – just saying I have yet to verify it would be awesome…so those who aren’t interested in checking it out just won’t and those who are, will sometimes post results for the community, saving you the hassle.

Jacob

I couldn’t get to work for me either

itshappening

@dan keep doin what youre doin…

YG

Dan, post and let us know you have not confirmed. Keep up the great work

Jan

I can confirm that after trying MCATALINH 4 times it worked for me.

esther

You have reached the daily limit for Star code redemption tries. Please try later.

Anonymous

MB

MCATALINH just worked for me! Thanks @dan!

Andrew

I tried a bunch of times.. isn’t working for me with MCATALINH

dave

“You have reached the daily limit for Star code redemption tries. Please try later.”

Dan

@dave:
One you get that you’re locked out until tomorrow.

Andrew

@Dan, on your attempts before it worked was it giving you Oops, something is wrong; please try again later. (MSG-S0047) ?

Dan

@Andrew:
Yes, just kept on going with that same code.

israel

Oops, something is wrong; please try again later. (MSG-S0047) at 4:38 – not working!

Dan

@israel:
You need to keep submitting it until it works.

:)

not working tried like 10 times.. 🙁

:)

25 times later… it worked! 🙂

Dan

Ha! Awesome!
Reminds me of the Expedia Vegas deal. Must be diff servers.

MeirS

Did anyone have success after getting the message:“You have reached the daily limit for Star code redemption tries. Please try later.”
I haven’t had any successful star code redemptions today.

nogo

Star code (limit 2 per day) *

No spaces or dashes

You have reached the daily limit for Star code redemption tries. Please try later.

Josh

@Dan,how do you find and get these star codes

Deaddd

This is all i was given after about 50 tries.

45 times- Oops, something is wrong; please try again later. (MSG-S0047)

5 times- The Star code you entered has already been redeemed. Please try another Star code.

SDR

I’d rather you post as soon as possible. Time is of the essence!

Thisiswhoiam

Just got my stars, did it right after the tweet went out!

Luri

MCATALINK and MCATALINL do not work

learner-earner

dan whatever you choose we still love you 🙂

AG

Dan, I tried and tried but on the 4th or 5th try it gave me the following message
You have reached the daily limit for Star code redemption tries. Please try later.

What does it mean

Thisiswhoiam

MCATALINH still works

YK

MCATALINH just worked on the 2nd try. Thanks Dan!

Brandon

MCATALINL worked for me on the third try. I can’t input anymore codes.

Lauren

MCATALINH worked on 2nd try! Thanks, Dan!

mindy

@Lauren: you got it this morning?

JoshBee

@Dan: Dan: As a longtime reader, just post it. Ignore the angry old age people… We will figure it out together.
DD Members: Why not help Dan figure out the deal and how to get it, rather then him breaking his head by himself and meanwhile losing the deal!?!?
Dan is the Man 🙂

Ben

MCATALINL just worked for me 🙂

Cynthia

Thanks…codes worked for me:)

AlexanderA

MCATALINH worked for me just now after two tries. Tried entering other codes (..M and ..L), got the “You have reached the daily limit for Star code redemption tries. Please try later.” message.

AlexanderA

@AlexanderA:
Dan, thank you! Please keep posting the deals even if not 100% confirmed.

Audrey

MCATALINL and MCATALINM worked for me

Yeshiva

Post first, ask questions later! Anyone who is mad at this does not see the big picture.

Thisiswhoiam

Just got my next set of 5 stars! ThAnks Dan and OP!

Jan

MCATALINM worked for me after trying 3 times. Thanks!

Steph

I was only able to use one code per day. I used MCATALINH yesterday and MCATALINM this morning. I received the maximum star messages, but I also earned the 10 stars. I’m hoping the third code will work for me tomorrow.

Lynn

People, do you really think Starbucks is so stupid that they will let you have free stars unlimited?? Oh brother.

Agent 86

Have entered 3 of the four (including the one in the comments). Took perseverance and 3 days, but all of them except one have gone so far, will try the next one tomorrow after midnight.

sumner

all 4 codes worked for me. thank you

Thanks Dan and Sandy!

I love life!

Mike

@Lynn: Yes

Kevin

@Dan:I just wanted to share my life experiences with you and see if you feel the same way. There are three types of people I have encountered thru my life that I just don’t understand.
Maybe they all are the same person that seems to follow me as I get older.
1)The kid who reminds the teacher before vacation is about to start that she didn’t assign us homework.
2)The person who doesn’t stop talking or asking questions and turns a 5-6 hour defensive driving course into a 7 and 1/2 course.
3)and finally the person who picks up the phone and calls the company everytime you post a deal.@Yitz:I hope you enjoy your one star while everyone else is getting 20 stars.

Gent

Just tried 3 codes and 2 of them worked!! Thanks Dan!!

yair

thanks dan! got 20 stars out of this, and gold status. Now, all i have to do is travel to a place where there’s starbucks, and I can get my free stuff!

moish

these things never work when I try

Jan

@Kevin: Great psychoanalysis!

Mike

Ill never use this code. Any die hard fan out there see if it works for you great. I never used it

enjoy 10% off* your next purchase
use code AB7R-SQL7-FWKF-ZXZU

Jan

It actually gave me the daily limit thing even though I didnt enter anything today! Ill try later.

Joseph

They are not working for me either. I already have a gold card but I tried to use them to add stars. I always got error messages. Please help.

Billiken

None of the four worked for me.

Thanks anyway, Dan.

eli

mdpokey

Did not work for me today. Tried all four 🙁

alec sun

Dead but thx dan!

Mindy

I just got ten stars!!! Woohoo!!

Thisiswhoiam

MCATALINL worked for me

mike

worked! still alive! thanks dan!

dave

I tried the first 2 late last night 11:30 PST, and they both worked. I’m still waiting for the 10 stars to post, because I need 9 stars to reach Gold by 4/7 before my account goes to 0.

Yankee

Just got congrats on 5 stars twice. waiting for 10 to post. Used first two codes. Thanks Dan…

Aryeh

worked for me…now im only 5 stars away from gold! need to get them be4 april 24! hopefully these codes will still work tmrw so i can get my gold status. thanx dan!

Hannah

MCATALINK just gave me 5 stars!!! Thanks a ton!!!

Hannah

MCATALINM also gave me 5 stars! Wow! Thanks! Now I’ve met my daily limit as you can only use two codes a day so thanks so much for the help!

abe

worked as of 1219!!

Jenn

All 4 codes worked for me. Used mcatalinl and mcatalink yesterday and just received my 10 stars. Put in mcatalinm and mcatalinh today and it says I have another 10 stars coming my way, to be posted within 24 hours. I used all lowercase letters, if that makes a difference.

Mike

I thought Starbucks isn’t kosher, what can you get from there that’s kosher??

NoneYa

The ones ending in L & K worked for me. Thanks!

Dan R

I earned 5 stars yesterday with “K” and earned another 10 today using “L” and “M”. Awesome deal Dan!!

stefanie

K and L both worked for me – thanks!

Seth

Dan, any idea if these will count toward the April dash, get 30 stars in April, bonus free 20 stars? Because that would be awesome….

Vitali

K and L worked for me. Thanks!

FC

k and l worked , thanks

Jannelle

Just worked for me on April 1st @2:49 ! Thanks 🙂

Ben

How long did it take to actually post to your Starbucks account?

Jono

Is there a way to consolidate stars meaning transferring all stars to one accounts after using the codes in various accounts?

Anonymous

@Seth: Was wondering the@Ben: easme. It took me overnight.

Angela

@Dan:

Dan, you are dead on correct with the codes, they both worked for me for the limit today.. thanks so much… !! Your info is great

Anonymous

@Jono: You can consolidate cards, but I dont know if the stars get consolidated with the cards.

Newcomer

Tx Dan. couldn’t get them to work the other day but now they worked right away.

Suzi

First two codes seemed to work for me. Need to wait 24 hours… thanks so much!

JR

YES!! Finally worked. Needed this so bad! My stars were about to expire on the 10th if I didn’t reach Gold. Gold here I come! Thanks again Dan.

Eli

Im a die hard starbucks fan.

I usually accumulate anywhere from 100-150 stars a year through bonuses and purchases, these 20 just knocked it out of the park… I have 5 free rewards… Don’t even know what to do with all of them…

Shannon

The first two worked for me! Haven’t tried the second two. Renewed my gold status! Thanks so much!

love this

Worked for me thank you soooo much!

Wil

Thanks! Last night I entered the first two with successful messages, and by morning had 10 stars added to my account. I just entered the last two and received successful messages again. Only 2 stars away from returning to gold.

CB

Three out of four worked for me. Only one that didn’t was the code. I’ll try again tomorrow. I just renewed my Gold status 🙂 Thanks Dan!!

DanR NYC

MCATALINK just worked 4 me !

Chaya

Thanks Dan!
Was ableto apply 15 stars:)
Keep ’em coming!

StarCrazy

What’s so special about gold status? It seems to be one of the worst award programs…. Is there something I am missing here…?

finally!

been trying since this went up. today all 4 worked on first tries (2 accounts)

asks

just picked up 10 stars, thanks!

AlexanderA

Was able to get 20 stars over 3 days using all of the codes above. Dan, you are the man! Thanks!!!

Esti

I got all 20 stars!!!!!!!!!

Vitali

K and L worked yesterday (10 stars), and M and H worked this morning (another 10 stars!). Thank you!

Marc

Codes K and L still working today

AtallD

There is currently an April Star Dash going on – earn 30 stars in APril and get 20 bonus stars. I wonder if these 20 stars (codes entered in APril) will count toward the 30… That will make these codes even sweeter

yo

It works but u can only do 2 a day and it taks up to 24 hours to show up.

Aryeh

Thanks Dan! Just got Gold status thanks to ur codes…. It says free refills is one of the perks. Is that on all drinks or just regular coffee or a simple tea?

Nooch

Thanks Dan! I used all 4 codes successfully over the last 2 days (limit 2 per day)earning me 20 stars. Awesome!

heb

Dan, TU for the heads up. i already had gold status and receive a free drink after every 12 stars. i received 10 stars yesterday and i see that they count toward renewing my gold status. however, they do not seem to count toward a free drink. are they supposed to work toward free drinks?

JR

Dan– It’s weird, my reward history shows I got the 10 stars on April 1st but my official star count hasn’t changed. Watsup with that?

JR

@Aryeh: Yes, “brewed and iced coffee and tea “

Michelle

Thanks Dan, the first two codes worked for me, I will try the next two tomorrow.

ben

Is free refills only while in store?

or can I purchase at one store continue on my way and then refill at another store?

Cheryl

It worked for me no problems.Dan your awesome.Thank you.Keep it up.Some people are never happy…

Autumn

used 2 so far & both worked ..thank you xo

Sar

Why arent any of the codes working for me?

Barney
