[Expired] [YMMV] Starbucks: Load $15 To Your Account & Get 25-50 Bonus Stars

This deal has expired, view more Starbucks deals by clicking here.

Update: Looks like it’s definitely targeted as some are being offered 50 stars instead of 25.

The Offer

No direct link, sent out via e-mail (subject line ‘Don’t skip this step if you want to reach Rewards’)

  • Starbucks is offering 25 bonus stars when you load $15 or more to your account

The Fine Print

  • Valid from November 7th until November 11th

Our Verdict

Not sure if you need to have received the e-mail or not. Keep in mind if you load using Chase Pay currently you can get up to 475 bonus stars. That deal is significantly better than this one, I don’t think they will be stackable but they might be. 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) so this is only 1/5th of the way to a free item.

The email is exactly like this website. Can upload pics if link not working. It opens in incognito for me.

Terms specifically says: “These Bonus Stars cannot be combined with other offers or discounts, such as Star Dashes,” no double dip chase pay promo RIP

Hmmm…this explains why when I loaded $20 with Chase Pay yesterday they gave me 150 points rather than the 125 I was expecting.
Based on my single data point it seems stackable.

I feel using Cash Debit card with coffee shop boost is better than bonus starbucks stars

Agreed although the Chase promo + this is on par with the Cash Debit.

With the Chase promo, you are effectively getting 5 items for the price of 4 assuming $5 per on all — so 20% discount ($20 paid / $25 value) or 6 items for the price of 5 assuming $4 per on all — so 17% discount ($20 paid / $24 value).

A $5 item with the cash debit will be discounted 20% ($4 paid / $5 value) and a $4 item will be discounted 25% ($3 paid / $4 value).

One benefit of doing the reloads though is you can then earn more stars from your actual purchases as well as doing “bonus star” things (purchase 2 drinks in 3 days, etc. etc.). So if you get drinks over $5, the loads are likely better. If you get drinks below $5 the cash app. is likely better.

DP: I was targeted for 50 bonus stars. Loaded $20 using Chase Pay and received 175 stars within a few minutes. So it DOES stack with the Chase offer.

Same thing for me, loaded $20 with Chase Pay on November 8 and received both the 50 stars from the Starbucks $15+ reload offer and the final 200 stars from the Chase Pay $20+ offer.
