Step 2: Login and you should see an offer on the home screen to earn 300 stars at Starbucks. Click on offer details. If you don’t see the offer, keep logging out and back into the app until you see the offer.
Step 3: Click “activate this offer” and follow the prompts to sign into your Starbucks account.
Step 4: Your Chase Pay account should now be linked to your Starbucks account. To verify, just click on “wallet” in the Chase Pay app and click on “Loyalty cards”. You should now see Starbucks there.
Step 5: Make any purchase at Starbucks and pay with the Chase Pay app and you’ll get 300 bonus stars within 5 days of your purchase. Just click pay and have the barista scan the QR code in the Chase Pay app for the payment.
It says that any purchase will qualify, so I’d imagine that loading funds onto your Starbucks Rewards card should work. But only time will tell if that does trigger the 300 stars. Buy any other item if you just want to play it safe.
- You need 300 stars to earn Gold status.
- After earning old status, you need 125 stars to get any size food or drink for free at Starbucks.
