[Expired] Starbucks App: Buy $15 Starbucks eGiftcard With Mastercard & Get $5 Bonus

Deal is now dead

Update: Readers are reporting the $5 bonus gift card even if they don’t see the offer. YMMV as always.

The Offer

No direct link to offer, should show up in app

  • Starbucks is offering a bonus $5 eGiftcard when you use a Mastercard to purchase an eGiftcard worth $15 or more

The Fine Print

  • Valid through 11/22
  • Limit one per customer

Our Verdict

Should be good for personal use. Should stack with Bank of America deal if you have it.

Hat tip to DDG

Wondering which MasterCard App is this?

I guess it should stack with the usual Bank of Amerideal (or whatever it’s called)

Both BofA and Chase are offering the 10% back ($3 max CB). Not sure if Chase has any MC’s though (BofA does).

However, the offers don’t explicitly state whether on-line / in-APP purchases count. This is what I see in the BofA/Chase T&C:

“Offer expires 12/31/2019. Payment must be made directly with the merchant. Offer not valid at locations inside grocers, retailers, airports or hotels. Offer not valid on third-party delivery services or mobile wallet purchases. Payment must be made on or before offer expiration date.”

If an eGC can be purchased in a Starbucks store (via the Starbucks App), then it should stack w/ the BofA/Chase CC offer.

most Chase cards are visa though unless you have some grandfathered cc

Ihg appears the only MC

Payment through the Starbucks app is payment directly with the merchant, so I guess it’s fine.

Don’t see it

should see it in the App (Starbucks iPhone App). Doesn’t appear to show via desktop, but terms state it would work at starbucks.com.

–> Home Tab
or
–>Inbox (messages)

I’m receiving an error message when trying to purchase & send to an e-mail (different from the one linked to my account) – “delivery method must be an email address or facebook account”

I have an Android. It is not showing.

Update: Kept receiving error with Chase IHG (mastercard). Switched to Citi Mastercard to test and it went through right away & I received the $5 card (emailed it to myself). Definitely something with Chase.

Thanks for sharing Chris! I’ve got the same error message with Chase IHG (mastercard) and finally succeeded in another mastercard

I am having same issue with IHG. Sadly that is my only MC.

I don’t appear to have it either. Looking at home and my inbox (in the app).

I see it on my android app.

Made the purchase with Double Cash credit card and received $5 eGift right away.

did you see the offer or just tried without it?

Offer should show in Messages/inbox on the app then click thru button in msg.

i have no messages, no offers, no expired offers, lol.

Are you logged in? And is your app updated?

JennyJ
JennyJ

Yes, logged in and the offer popped up.

YoniPDX

New acct? That’s the only thing I can think of I signed up for a new acct in October for the bingo – took a few weeks to start getting msgs.

The offer was there when I logged on the app.

will this work w a mastercard debit card?

Celia

Yes. I used a bank debit card, not a problem.

I have the offer but am getting an error message when I try to check out with my MC. “A system error occured. Please try again later.

Same here. Try adding the card to your account first. Then, go back a d try the purchase. Worked for me.

Kimbra
Kimbra

That worked! I’ve never had to work so hard for $5.

The bonus $5 eGift came immediately with the $15 one.

Assuming it stacks with 10% off BankAmeriDeal, total discount would be 32.5% off.

Kimbra

You have a BofA Mastercard?

MissMBA
MissMBA

There is a Cash rewards Mastercard from BOA.

Wouldn’t it be more? $5 from this offer and $1.50 from the 10% BankAmeriDeal totals to $6.50 back so about 43%?

Brad C
Brad C

Don’t think so, the $5 is a GC not cash. You’re essentially buying $20 worth of Starbucks GCs for $13.50 ($15-$1.50 from BankAmeriDeal).

Just sent a egc $15 (select Others amount) with Citi DC even though offer did not appear on app nor receive email. $5 bonus received immediately.

Error: “Delivery Method must be an email address or a Facebook account”

I did put in the email address correctly!

Try to use a different MC other than Chase IHG card.

thanks so much, that was the issue! who would’ve thought that one specific card would fail like that?

Was finally able to get this to work. Kept getting errors despite adding different mastercards. I was able to use the website to add my double cash and then complete the purchase using the phone app. Received email confirmation within 30 seconds! Thanks, DoC!!

Got it! Showed in my inbox!

I received $5 gc but not $15, just “Your Starbucks eGift Card receipt is enclosed” Thank you for brightening someone’s day with a Starbucks eGift Card. We’re in the process of delivering your eGift Card and will let you know once it has been opened.
I used the same my email address for $15 gc. How long does it take for $15 gc delivery?

Erin
Erin

The guy on phone told that delivery of 15$ set for tomorrow IDK why. He sent it today.

Odd I found this in my iPad app, but not my phone. I was logged into the same account on both. I don’t go to Starbucks very often, but I had a 5% deal on my Bank of America credit card. I bought a $15 card, sent to myself then realized I used the wrong card (my Citi Double Cash). Yes, it’s only 45¢, but it’s annoying to mess up an easy bonus.

George

Let us know if that earns 1+1%? Per the new terms, gift cards are excluded.

Ah! I’ll try to remember to check and report back.

Was I late to redeem it?

Just called 866-840-4940, waited for about 5mins before speaking to an executive. Told that the bonus wasnt credited. He added to my card in couple of seconds and BOOM!
