-Valid for new members only.

To join you can either:
-Pick up a Starbucks Card from your local store and register it online. A $5 minimum load is required.
-Download the Starbucks mobile app, create an account, and get a digital card.

By using your card once you will also get 1 free drink (with no limit on its value!) or food item on or around your birthday.

Otherwise the program is pretty lousy, you need to use your card 25 times just to reach “Gold” which only gets you a free drink or food item after using your card every 12 times thereafter.  Remember that if you are buying more than 1 item to pay for it separately as every purchase counts as a credit towards free items.

I wouldn’t say its lousy. You’re buying your daily coffee anyway, it’s nice to get a free one once in a while.

Dan

@dave:
True, but the fact that it takes 37 purchases for someone starting until they get any benefits is very steep.

Was better when they had free soy+syrup.

mendy

Sam

Anonymous

@mendy: isnt that stealing?

mendy

yada

What stops sbux from cancelling your main account saying there is suspicious activity?

boruch

I downloaded the iPhone app and was about to add $5 but the lowest option is $10 so i decided not to.
it then showed my balance $5 without me adding any $

al613

So, if you get a card in store, its spent $5, get $5. if you download on the phone, its $5 for free?

Marlene

I think the program is pretty good. I always take advantage by buying discounted gift cards and taking advantage of all kinds of promos. In January, every 6th drink was free.

@david: I have an android mobile app..how do you egift it..i do not see any options of egift.. can you please guide me on how to do it?

Is it still working for people? I noticed that the last account I signed up had $0 for a while and then $5 today. but when I tried a new account it is still at $0.

Moshe

Dan
I downloaded the app and created a new virtual card and added $10 but it didnt add $5
What should i do?
Please try to respond

tt

why do u have to merge, take screen shots of all ur cards. then everyone that gets used delete the pic.u usually don’t spend more the $5 per time anyway.
