Since opening their first Seattle store in 1971, the creators of Starbucks have had two goals: offer great coffee and make the world a better place. While the company has grown to over 24,000 stores in more than 70 countries, and now sells much more than coffee, it still aspires to nurture the communities it connects to and run a socially responsible business.
Starbucks Discount Tips
There is a wide variety of Starbucks offers, discounts and perks available through the Starbucks Rewards program. You can also get perks with your Starbucks Rewards Visa credit card and using the Starbucks app. Signing up for Starbucks emails is another way to get deals. Keep these tips in mind and pay less for your next cup of joe.
Get Starbucks Deals With the Rewards Program
Most Starbucks discounts are accessed through its rewards program, and there are multiple ways to join. Create an account on the Starbucks website using the information from a physical Starbucks Card or a Starbucks eGift Card. You can also download the Starbucks app, create an account on your mobile device and complete registration with your Starbucks Card. Another way to join is using a Starbucks promo code, called a Star Code, from a participating grocery store product to sign up online. As a new member, you'll start at the Green level (0-299 stars) and earn two stars for every dollar you spend. With a Starbucks Rewards account, you can also:
Receive a reward on your birthday
Track your stars and pay by phone
Order ahead and skip the line
Get free in-store refills
Enjoy special offers and member events
More Ways to Rack Up Stars
When you reach more than 300 stars, you get extra perks as a Gold member, including earning points faster on Double-Star Days each month and getting a reward every 125 stars.
Buying in stores isn't the only way to score stars. Use a Starbucks Rewards credit card or prepaid card both in and outside of Starbucks to earn extra stars.
You can also earn stars by purchasing select grocery store items and then adding the Starbucks promo codes to your online account.
Sign Up for Happy Hour
If you want deals without having a rewards account, sign up for Starbucks emails to get Happy Hour notifications. You'll receive a notice about the next Happy Hour with a Starbucks coupon for a specific type of in-store product. Show this code to the barista on the given day and enjoy your free offer.
