Giftme Offering 18% Discount On Starbucks Giftcards

The Offer

iOS Download | Android Download 

  • The Giftme app is offering an 18% discount on Starbucks gift cards.

The Fine Print

  • Cards are guaranteed for 7 days
  • Limited time only

Our Verdict

Update: Apparently the joining process takes several days and they require a scan/fax of your credit card on file. That’s a dealbreaker for me.

They seem to frequently offer discounts on Starbucks gift cards. I don’t have any experience with them, so use at your own risk. Feel free to share your experiences in the comments as well. I wouldn’t recommend ordering more gift cards than you can use in 7 days. Looks like these aren’t new gift cards either, other best selling rates are around the ~10% mark.

Hat tip to Frequent Miler

You can transfer Starbucks gift cards from one to another, so after buying these I would immediately transfer it to your “main” Starbucks gift card. That should protect you from these only being guaranteed for 7 days.

SB has been known to shut down accounts for transferring in compromised GCs.

Check with balance before purchase. Never buy any SBGC that can not be divided by $5. Those cards are most likely brand new. I have purchased several hundreds of SBGC from them without problem.

“Please note that the terms state that Starbucks gift cards from the Giftme app should not be transferred onto a personal Starbucks account.” – from the hustlermoneyblog post on this offer. I dunno why not, as they seem to be in the business of reselling cards.

Their best have been frequent 25+% on Whole Foods GIft cards

Yurp seriously. Out of morbid curiosity I went through with it — one experience so far was a $50 15% off WF gift card that worked out fine. I did notice on my ATT Access More statement the charge listed as “recurring”. No idea what that means, they haven’t charged me anything else.

This kills it for me, not worth the hassle and another company having my CC on file

Did that post as 3x once your statement closed?

I can’t seem to get that excel Solver trick working to back into the 3x transactions, so I called Citi. Evidently even their own front-line reps can’t see 3x vs. 1x at the individual transaction level, but she confirmed that it coded as e-commerce which “should” calc as 3x like most of the transactions I put on this card. I did have some non-bonused transactions for the month, so not 100% sure, but looks good.

There are a lot of fraud with them. I have bought starbucks gc from them and merged it to my account. turns out there’s fraud and my entire gc is invalidated by starbucks.

I have giftme. Yeah, the credit card thing is weird but it’s probably for their security incase you sell fraudulent cards to them or something along those lines. I have had really good experiences with them. If they sell me a card with no balance, you press the no balance button and you are refunding in a few hours. They charge 1 cent for a “service fee”, so you do lose one cent haha. I was selling a bunch from gift me to abc/card cash before they stopped me.

I’ve just discovered them and have sold 1 small card to abc/cardcash – why did they shut you down? Did the GCs end up zero-balance at some point before abc/cardcash was able to re-sell them or something?

I found it a little weird they sent me an email reminding me “Use your card before the 7 day warranty runs out!”

Starbucks Shutdown – Not from this seller but in the past I bought SBUX gc and loaded them to my personal account. Within a few days, account frozen. After multiple calls to SBUX and really no answers someone finally told me the gc I loaded to my card were purchased originally with a stolen credit card. So even though the original buyer bought them with a stolen card, sold to ABC and I bought from ABC with a valid cc, they still shut me down. The hassle is not worth it.

Do not buy from Giftme. I tried buying a Panera card that was listed as 25% off and I got a card that was 16% off. I instantly let them know I needed that refunded since it was not what was advertised. They said gift cards with balances cannot be refunded. I told them I would have to dispute on my credit card. They deactivated my account, referred me to their “fraud department” and said they were contacting the local police. I kid you not that was their exact response. So apparently fraud is now notifying a company that they gave you the wrong product.

Really don’t get the hesitancy of taking a picture of your credit card. Almost every gift card purchasing site wants all of your CC info anyways. Not a big difference in sending a picture of your card. They have all your info either way. And there’s always the chargeback route if something shady happens.

Gift me now requires buyer to use only bitcoin to make a purchase. I’m not buying any gift card from them any more due to that much hassle. Also their gift card only guarantees 7 days of protection. You pay with bitcoin and that’s only 7 days protection for maybe 10% discount on average? It’s a joke.

They had allowed ACH transfers, but this apparently isn’t working any longer.

I downloaded this app based on recommendations in other posts on this site. It sounded like a good idea and I liked the ease of use versus other GC aggregators. I will be removing it. I started to use it and was asked to verify my identity by providing photos of the front and back of my driver’s license. REALLY? Umm, how about NOT! So then I did some research. Many, many negative reviews and people that have lost money. I work way too hard for mine, which is why I seek discounts and deals, but I can’t afford to be scammed. So I wasted a good deal of valuable time, but glad I didn’t actually jump in the fray with this company. I just wish I had never downloaded the app.
