[Expired] Chase Pay Starbucks: Get 300 Stars For Making A Purchase (Two Free Drinks/Items)

This offer has expired, click here for more Starbucks deals and here for more Chase pay deals.

Update: Stars are starting to post for people, if you don’t see the Stars then check Chase Pay and you should see a confirmation message that the Stars are on their way. It seems like they are posting for people who did the promo on the first day it’s active. In addition it looks like online reloads have not worked, in store reloads ARE working.

Reposting because there seemed to be some confusion that this might be geographically restricted in the comments. We have confirmed with Chase directly that this is not the case and they have passed this onto Starbucks to ensure it’s known that the offer is available nationwide.

Update: Check the Chase Pay app. Should be there for everybody.

The Offer

No direct link, sent out via e-mail. Subject line is ‘<your name>, something special for you’

  • Use Chase Pay to make a purchase at Starbucks and receive 300 Starbucks Stars. Allow 5 days for the Stars to post, they do not get added instantly.

The Fine Print

  • Valid until March 19th, 2018
  • One time use
  • Non transferable

Our Verdict

Can’t really complain with two free items for making a single purchase. Make sure you enroll in Starbucks Bingo as well. Keep in mind if you don’t have Starbucks gold status you’ll earn 300 Stars (enough for Gold status), but won’t get the free items.

who sent the email, Chase or Starbucks?

check chase pay. promo shows there.

Hi. Where would it be in the Chase Pay app. I only see HINTS, LAST TRANSACTION, WERE YOU CAN USE, ORDER AHEAD (doesn’t work for my location), REDEEM REWARDS for EGIFT CARDS.

At the bottom I only see HOME, ORDER, PAY, WALLER and MORE and none of them have anything useful.

Never mind installing and reinstalling work.

I didn’t need to re-install. Just killing the app and relogging in made the offer appear. Make sure to swipe away in recent app view for Android. For iPhone probably similar, maybe reboot the phone?

Chase

I didn’t receive anything, just installed and it was there already.

Same. I opened the app and the offer was there. I didn’t receive an email.

Can I use Chase Pay to reload my card to get the 300 stars or must I physically pay for a transaction at the register at a Starbucks location using the Chase Pay app QR code?

You could be the DP 🙂

I just reloaded with Chase pay and it didn’t seem to work. No notification or stars.

Perhaps the key phrase of “participating Starbucks store” is enforced. Starbucks inside Target might not work since they don’t code as Starbucks when I pay there.

Did you reload on mobile or did you reload at the physical store? If you hand the cashier your physical starbucks card and ask to reload it with chase pay, i think that would have a better chance of working

Mobile reload.

Appreciate the DP, Mr.P., I was about to give it a try when I saw your reply. I’m heading into a store tomorrow morning to finish out my Bingo card and will just use the Chase Pay app in person now. Thanks again!

“I just reloaded with Chase pay and it didn’t seem to work. No notification or stars.”

Are they giving a notification or the stars immediately, or “in 5 days”?

Check your chase pay app. I didn’t receive the email but found in the app

So, to get this Bonus, we need to pay using the Chase pay App, Does paying through Chase Pay earn regular Starbucks Stars, Since if that’s not earned, the Bingo will also not work.

It should – when I added Starbucks through the Chase Pay app it now shows as a linked Loyalty Card, just like Shell (for the Fuel Rewards program). So, I’m fairly certain Starbucks will know when you used the Chase Pay app to pay and will give you your points.

Using the STARBUCKS app in the “normal” way will generate Starbucks Rewards credit but may not trigger the 300 bonus stars. To be 100% certain pay using the CHASE Pay app at the register.

I went to starbucks today. slightly annoyed that I didn’t check your site this morning. Still here. Just reloaded 5 bucks. Will update within 5 days

Is Chase Pay freezing for anyone else when you go to activate the offer? Rebooted my phone, restarted the app, but nothing seems to get the offer sign-up to actually load.

My app is also freezing… 🙁

It freezes for me too. I restarted and that didn’t help.

Just an update: Chase Pay froze on my Android phone when I tried to activate the offer. I was able to activate the offer on my iPhone.

Nothing but freezing here on Android. I’ve uninstalled/reinstalled the app, restarted phone, uninstalled my adblocker app…

Chase pay says participating locations only. How do I find out which ones?

Open Chase Pay—> More –> Merchants

Fun fact: chase business cards can not be added to digital wallets (that includes chase pay)

That is good times 🙂
I had issues activating my Chase Pay account.

anyone able to use chase pay on pixel2? chase pay thinks phone is rooted and security policy doesnt allow chase pay on rooted devices,,

I have a rooted Pixel XL (not 2) and had problems with Chase Pay in the past. Some combination of: 1) using Magisk with Magisk Hide enabled, 2) Chase Pay selected in the Magisk Hide list, and 3) random package name for Magisk Manager (I do all 3) is enough to pass SafetyNet, use Google Pay, use Chase Pay, show device as “certified” in Play Store, etc.

Yep works fine

I have a Samsung Galaxy S8 which is NOT rooted and I’m getting the same message. I’ve used Chase Pay in the past without problem. Not sure why this is happening now.

Figured it out. The language in their “Security FAQ” on the app listed “spoofing apps” as a potential reason for it not working. Took a chance and removed my “Fake GPS” app and after removing that, Chase Pay worked again.

I have fakegps too, will remove and check if it works , ty

The sell bananas for $1.00….easy 300 points (thats enuff for two food products, and their most expensive food item is $6.59 at my Starbucks–a chicken salad with all kinds of shtuff in it.

In my area the bananas are $1.25. If you can find the wild ophelia chocolate hearts those are $.50 or the jammy sammy is $.95.

There are no starbucks that except chase pay anywhere near me from what i can tell. Started typing in major cities as well. None showed.

Mine had no idea what Chase Pay was. They told me to use Apple Pay. I did and then sent a message to Starbucks to ask that those points be added to my account. Why they rolled out a new payment method and offered a bonus – without training their employees on how to accept it -is beyond me.

Same thing happened to me , a store listed in the chase pay app could not figure out how to use chase pay.

Same thing happened to me! they looked at me like I was retarded. The store says they accept chase pay, yet they said that their scanner couldnt work. So I ended up paying by card. I emailed Starbucks and they said they wouldnt honor the points and to try another location. Instead they gave me 10 stars. WHOOO!

They finally tried the Drive-Thru scanner to read the QR, and it worked it was different than the scanner at the counter, go figure, but the paper receipt showed Chase pay, snapped a quick pic, hopefully the stars just post without any headaches

Just had this same experience this morning, cashier didn’t know how to get it to work. Its a QR code so I assume they’re supposed to scan that, but she kept having me tap my phone on the card reader and it didn’t register, I ended up paying with gift card. None of the other employees had a clue either. I just emailed customer service so hopefully they’ll give us all our stars, that’s the only reason I went.

The offer is crashing my app as well

Try updating the chase pay app, they periodically release bug fixes for issues like yours

Per their support this is only valid in Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, Ohio and Pennsylvania. I forwarded the email to Chuck and Will.

Does it show such a limitation in the fine print on the app? I’m a bit skeptical about this claim (I did see the email you sent, but could be a misinformed rep).

No my guess is they are going to hide behind the “participating locations” language. Scummy way to conduct themselves, really. I sent them a reply asking why they rolled this promo out nationwide on the Chase Pay app if it was only for 5 states and have yet to hear back. I’ll keep you posted.

I reached out to our Chase contact to see if we can verify. Thanks Mike.

Data Point: Just used this at a Starbucks location in Southern California and it worked. Used Chase Pay on an iPhone. Now waiting for the bonus stars to post.

Anyone successfully used Chase Pay in Northern California? I stopped by two Bay Area Starbucks and neither was able to scan the bar code.

Yes, at the Starbucks in Walnut Creek.

Same thing happened ok me

Works at Pacific Commons in Fremont. Still waiting on stars though

Teresa Henning

I got the stars and I am in IL

A Starbucks in Brooklyn had A: never heard of chase pay B: tried scanning it a couple times, the guy was very friendly saying if you are supposed to get 300 stars lets keep trying but it never worked.

its because most SB cashiers are not trained in tech and dont know shit. 1) get the chase app and you have to LINK the chase pay app to ur SB account. u have to follow the link inside the chase app which will load a browser to login to ur SB account. you must link it first. 2) use the chase app to find the SB that has the tech installed. not all of them do but many do. 3) tell the cashier that they are dumb and go look near the CC Payment Processing button when they accept CC payments. its a big button that says Chase Pay on their screen. its at the bottom. they need to look for it. if they still refuse, repeat that they are dumb as shit and ask for a manager.

One more DP, it seems like the bar code scanner at the counter, which normally is used for the SB App for paying only works on the SB app, they used a different scanner at the the Drive-Thru register and it worked (the shift manager came over and pointed out the CP button on the screen, and tried the scanner but no dice, the tried the Drive thru and it worked), I don’t think that CP works with NFC or MST I think it is just scanner only, never tried it for BB or Wal-mart promo’s and missed the $25 off last fall.

I got double charged. They scanned my phone using Chase
pay. I just called Starbucks they issued refund.

Used Chase Pay this morning at Starbucks. Took about 10-15 attempts before the QR Code would scan. My dad tried to use Chase Pay at a different Starbucks and ended up giving up due to the inability to scan. Definitely makes me hesitant to try and use Chase Pay in the future.

I’ve used Chase Pay at a number of places. You can’t just scan it – the person working the register has to do it a certain way. I’ve had more than one occasion the person I got had no idea how to scan but when a supervisor came over who was familiar with it showed them how and it worked no problem. I’m guessing a lot of human error here rather than non-functioning chase pay.

its because most SB cashiers are not trained in tech and dont know wtf is up 1) get the chase app and you have to LINK the chase pay app to ur SB account. u have to follow the link inside the chase app which will load a browser to login to ur SB account. you must link it first. 2) use the chase app to find the SB that has the tech installed. not all of them do but many do. 3) tell the cashier that they are dumb and go look near the CC Payment Processing button when they accept CC payments. its a big button that says Chase Pay on their screen. its at the bottom. they need to look for it. if they still refuse, repeat that they are dumb as shit and ask for a manager.
