Chase Pay: Load Starbucks With $10+, Get 250 Bonus Stars (Two Free Drinks)

Update 2: Deal is back with a new start and expiry date. Hat tip to DDF. Looks like it’s working for everybody as long as you have gold status. If your Chase Pay isn’t working then it’s likely because you have a combined personal and business account. If you contact Starbucks here. Only works if you have a Chase card.

Update: Reader @missmi621 got the bonus stars without being targeted, they did have gold status though. Reader @HeyCrutch didn’t get their bonus stars due to not having gold status so it seems like that is a hard requirement. Reposting this due to this new information. E-mail Starbucks if you don’t receive your stars within 24 hours.

The Offer

Direct link to offer

The Fine Print

  • Offer valid 1/8/17 – 1/12/17 or while supplies last. Gold Starbucks Rewards™ members load $10 or more in your Starbucks® App using Chase Pay® and collect two hundred and fifty (250) Bonus Stars.
  • Offer valid 6/4/17 – 6/7/17
  • Bonus Stars will be automatically loaded to this Starbucks Rewards™ account within 24 hours.
  • These Bonus Stars cannot be combined with other offers, promotions or discounts.
  • Bonus Stars do not apply towards Star Dashes.
  • Enjoy this offer one time.
  • Offer good in the U.S. only.

Our Verdict

Looks like you need to be a Starbucks Rewards Gold Member to be eligible. Pretty easy deal otherwise and two free drinks is a pretty good reward for a $10 load. One of my predictions for 2017 was more of these offers, so it’s good to see Chase getting involved.

Update: Chase Pay won’t work if you have a combined personal & business login.

Thanks. Just saw it in my app inbox. For me it’s like getting $14 free

adam
adam

can you explain why it is $14 free? thanks

It’s 250 bonus stars worth two free drinks/food. I live in Hawaii and I like to add extra stuff to my blended frappucino and after the extras, the $ price is usually above $7 but it will still cost just 125 stars to pay for it.

If you would not have paid $14 for it in the first place, then it’s not the same as getting $14 free.

You’re confusing price with value.

Tyler

Agreed. You’re actually getting $5 free (the two black coffees you would have got anyway) and a $9 coupon. It’s all very complicated try to follow along.

How do you know he wouldn’t have paid $7 normally? From his comment it sounds like he does this anyways. If someone says this is a $14 value *to them*, why on earth would you think you’re important enough to challenge that statement? Let the guy value it at $14 and be done with it. Save your condescending attitude by not posting and just move on!

The Value Traveler

yes..so basically, pay 10…get 10 free …cuz thats how much their drinks are now.

Tried just now and it says chase pay is currently unavailable at 1235 Pacific time, will try later tonight! Thanks for heads up!

Yup my guess is system issues

Says that I might need to set up a new Chase.com account in order to use Chase Pay. Maybe because my existing Chase login has both biz and personal accounts? Dunno, so far not impressed with Chase pay haha

Just called Chase. Cannot access Chase Pay if I have a combined biz/personal account. It’s a technical flaw they haven’t figure out. The online tech support said the solution is to unlink my account. Not worth the trouble. Went ahead and set up Chase pay with my wife’s account instead…

I have a combined login, but was able to set up Chase Pay using my personal-only login credentials.

Will you get the stars if the offer doesn’t show up in the Starbucks app? I am a Rewards Gold.

Alvin

Hi I am in the situation. And I loaded. I just got the stars in my account. So it works!

The Value Traveler

when trying to add it as a payment method, getting ” Were temporarily unable to complete your request…Please try again later”….anybody else?

The same here

Chris

Yes, got that, but I think it was a short delay while Chase Pay was setting up and then linking back to Starbucks, because it went through fine after a few minutes.

Gabriel

i have gold status but this offer did not show up in my inbox…but went ahead and loaded the card with chase and hoping the 250 stars will add to my account

I don’t have this in my active offers but I am a gold member. Any idea if this works regardless?

Yeah can confirm after 15 min on the phone bouncing from department to department that if you have personal and biz accounts under the same login you cannot enroll in Chase Pay. You’ll have to unlink the accounts and enroll through the personal login. Hate the biz personal login issue with Chase been an annoyance multiple times.

Jay
Jay

Well you’ll need a login without business accounts to view the online pre-approval offers anyway, so might as well get it done.

I did this today and split up my logins, but my new login with only personal cards is still stuck on the old interface. 🙁

Ben
Ben

Wish I’d read the comments — this similarly was a waste of 15 minutes for me, and I don’t feel like unlinking all these cards just for $10.

Frank
Frank

I am on the same boat. Even though $10 may not be worth it, considering the pre-approval offer, it might be worth a shot.

Laura

Worked fine for me. I don’t have any Chase biz cards. Will keep an eye out for the stars posting!

Thanks , I reloaded using chase pay and waiting for the 250 stars . I saw it in inbox when I saw this post and I am gold member .

I have a CHASE checking account plus 2 credit cards. Wanted to use my IHG MasterCard but in the fine print discovered using CHASE Pay for this is VISA or debit only.

Using IHG worked for me. Did have to email Starbucks but they credited account within an hour of email.

I didn’t read the fine print and reloaded it through the website. I guess I’ll see tomorrow if that qualifies. Oops!

Update/Datapoint: You do get credit when you reload through the website. The stars were in my account this morning

Good to know, Chase Pay shows as unavailable through app but worked on the website.

I also got the same errors until i reloaded using WiFi .. Try connecting to WiFi and reload.

I participated in two similar promotions through VISA checkout. One time went fine, the other didn’t. I want to reassure all of you that if the bonus stars do not appear in your account, then simply call STARBUCKS customer service. They will be able to see your transaction and credit your account within 24 hours.

I reloaded late last night and the stars were in my account this morning.
