Overall disappointing. Got two 50% offs on the first day, and maybe 100 total stars after that. Nothing else.

The 50% barcodes don’t seem to scan well either.

Final tally: 240 stars, two free iced drinks, two 50% iced tea/Refresher coupons, three 50% off Frappucino coupons.

That’s a nice tally. I was happy that I got close to 100 Stars total.

I’ve won nothing but entries to the sweepstakes. So disappointed in this game.

Burton

I won twice on day 1, nothing since then. In their prior games I’d at least occasionally get some stars.

After winning almost every day for the first week, it’s now gone cold. I think stores are starting to promote it now, and once someone at a store knows about it, it’s not much of a stretch for them to get their free two plays a day.

San

Agree. I got nothing in the last one week.

There seems to be an OMGuava world of goodness Bonus Play in the drop down. I won enough stars for a free drink and then my fun was over. P2 only needs 4 more stars to have enough for a free drink, but it is looking doubtful.

Also, there appears to have been a massive nerf in the prize rate on 7/26, roughly about the time of the email downtime, so the downtime is probably due to their server patching.

My DPs so far:

7/21: 1x 50%off frap, 1x 50%off refreshers
7/22: 1x 50%off frap, 1x free iced cold brew
7/23: 1x None, 1x free iced cold brew
7/24: 1x 10stars, 1x free iced cold brew
7/25: 1x 50%off refreshers, 1x free iced cold brew
7/26: 2x None
7/27: 1x 10stars, 1x None
7/28: 2x None
7/29: 2x None

After the earlier email downtime I tried to experiment with sending out 2 extra emails so as to “save” the signup for the next day.

However, all emails generated on one day expire when used the next day, so this tactic does not work.

Is there any skill involved in the game? I cant seem to direct the ball wherever I click…

I think it’s random, but who knows. It makes you think there is skill but I kind of doubt it.

Anyone else’s free play links not sending this morning?

Yep yep. I’m having the same pro

I am also not getting my free play requests honored. When I look at the rules, Starbucks absolves themselves from liability for all technical issues. I guess I will have to do without my amazing “sweepstakes entry” game prizes.

Same here
