I wrote last month about the most recent Starbucks Rewards devaluation, with espresso drinks doing up to 150 stars. However on the plus side, they lowered the cost of a hot coffee to 50 stars.
DDF member shaulyaakov figured out a fun hack though a few weeks ago. I’ve held back on sharing it, but this is now making the rounds on other sites so it’s not likely to last too long.
You can order a Caffe Misto hot coffee for just 50 stars. However you can add espresso shots, soy milk, and flavors without being charged anything extra!
This means Venti Caffe Misto with 5 espresso shots, 4 pumps of vanilla syrup, and soy milk will be just 50 stars instead of the 150 stars that an Espresso beverage would cost or the $9.05 paid cost.
It’s worth noting that the Star-K considers hot coffee from Starbucks to be acceptable only when you are traveling, while the regular espresso drinks are considered acceptable even when you are not traveling. YLORMV (Your Local Orthodox Rabbi may vary).
Share your experience in the comments if you try that one or if you fine any other good uses of Starbucks Stars.
