[Expired] [YMMV] Chase Pay: Load Starbucks & Earn Up To 475 Bonus Stars – Last Day

View more Chase Pay deals here, or more Starbucks deals here.

Update 11/01/2018: Conversely some people loaded and didn’t get the Stars, so I’m adding YMMV back.

Update 10/30/18: Reposting because reader David didn’t see the promotion listed anywhere, reloaded $25 anyway and received the bonus stars. Because of that I’m removing the YMMV aspect of the title.

Update 10/29/18: If this isn’t/wasn’t working for you, try the following tips:

  • Make sure your apps are updated to the latest version
  • Log out of your Starbucks account
  • Hope for the best
  • Log back into your Starbucks account
  • Offer appears (hopefully)

This is working for some people, but not everybody. It’s possible the offer is being pushed out to all accounts but is taking some time to propagate. If it’s not currently working I’d recommend trying in a day or two.

The Offer

No direct link, in app

  • If you reload your Starbucks balance with Chase Pay you can earn up to 475 bonus stars. Each reload needs to be at least $20 and is broken down as follows:
    • Reload once and earn 125 bonus stars
    • Reload twice and earn 275 bonus stars
    • Reload three times and earn 475 bonus stars
  • You can earn a maximum of 475 bonus stars

 

The Fine Print

  • Valid until December 12th, 2018

Our Verdict

A free item at Starbucks costs 125 stars (assuming you already have gold status, otherwise you need to earn 300 stars for gold status first). If you maxed out this promotion by doing three loads of $20 you’d have enough for 3.8 free items/drinks. If you’re a Starbucks fan, don’t forget about the Starbucks Bingo game either. Overall this is a pretty good deal if you’re going to need the Starbucks credit anyway.

I didn’t see the stars within 24 hours so I called up and had them manually added. Two days later the original batch actually got added to my account. I ended up getting 950 stars in total. Win…

UPDATE: That was easy I started a CS Chat just C&P the reload order transaction ID in the Chat box, they checked and they said they adjusted it and it the 200 final stars should post in 24hrs it took all of 2 minutes that was easy,

Now to figure out how to get Chase to recognize the Chase transaction as a Chase pay. Which is odd why It didn’t code as a CP. ( I even did re-loads for $25 for that reason (instead of $20). The 1,500 UR are only worth about $22.50 and I rarely stop at SB.

BTW wasn’t targeted that I can find in my e-mails, I didn’t take advantage of the offer early this year either.

Did’nt get the final 200 Stars bonus – Refilled $25 with CSR three times while we were in Hawaii. One of them did’nt code as Chase Pay ( So I should also have 3 of 5 Chase Pay purchase for the 1,500 bonus UR.

I rarely get Fraps ( my kids do) but they had order a Frap and any Sandwich or Breakfast item Promo and get 100 stars so ended up with 900 stars as well as the other promo’s so this was a pretty sweet deal.

PSA: You can’t SS from Chase pay because of Security policy but check your e-mail for “Thank You! Starbucks Card Reload Order XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX” if your going to contact CS.

Welp, looks like the stars that didn’t post automatically just posted (350 in my case). I wonder if we will see a clawback. My hunch is no, but that’s a lot of free stars them may have just given out.

I saw it in my app and didn’t get the bonus after reloads. I did a chat with them and got all 475 stars.

William Charles I reloaded and didn’t get the stars, but I did call before reloading to confirm that I was eligible for the promotion, so I called back in and they gave me the full 475 stars. Maybe worth doing for folks who at least saw it in their app before it got phased out

I was targeted but didn’t receive stars yet after loading, reached out to CS and was credited immediately.

Yes, definitely reach out if your stars aren’t posting after a day or so. I reloaded for the second time on Monday but didn’t get any stars. I just chatted with Customer Service and the stars appeared immediately after they looked into it. Very helpful!

I had received 475 stars in October. Can this deal be churned on the same Starbucks account?

Got the points automatically on the first reload, but not on the 2nd, These *should* post within an hour or two of the reload. If not, customer service will gladly help via email if you submit screenshots of your Starbucks and CHASE PAY account activity (showing the reload). Once they make the adjustment it should appear in your account within an hour of receiving their email response.
