Starbucks Rewards members get exclusive offers & discounts! 🤩

Whether you’re a regular customer or stop in occasionally, the Starbucks Rewards Program is a must! First of all, it’s completely free to join. You’ll earn points called “stars” with every purchase and get access to all kinds of exclusive offers, including special promotions to earn bonus stars.

Another good reason to join the Rewards program is that Starbucks occasionally has instant win games where you can score free stars, drinks, gift cards, and more. You need to be a member to reap these rewards so be sure to sign up for your free account!

How do Starbucks Rewards work?

To get started, create a Rewards account. You can do this online or through the Starbucks app. Members earn stars on every order (outside of gift cards), and there are plenty of opportunities to earn bonus stars.

Members receive one star per $1 spent. Stars accumulate and can be redeemed for free food and drinks. Members also score a free birthday treat every year and free brewed coffee and tea refills while in-store!

What is the Starbucks App?

Starbucks Rewards and the Starbucks app go hand in hand and using the app makes your Starbucks Rewards experience even more beneficial. When you preload money through the app, you’ll receive two stars per $1 spent instead of just one. Discovering and taking advantage of exclusive double or triple star promos or BOGO Happy Hour drinks is also much easier.

Using the app allows rewards members to customize drinks and place orders for Mobile Pickup in your local cafe. The app also makes it super easy to track how many stars you’ve earned, how many you’ve redeemed, and when they expire. To make your checkout experience a breeze, app users can link payment cards, consolidate Starbucks gift cards, and send Starbucks gift cards to friends, family, co-workers, or whomever!

Do Starbucks Rewards Expire?

Unfortunately, yes. Stars (the points you use to redeem Rewards) expire six months after earning them. Luckily, when redeeming Stars for Rewards, the oldest Stars will be applied so that they are less likely to expire before you can use them. Be sure to sign up for emails from Starbucks to be notified when your Stars will soon expire.

Starbucks Star Rewards redemption options:

      • 25 Stars: Swap in any milk substitutions, syrups, or an extra shot of espresso free of charge.
      • 100 Stars: Enjoy a free coffee, iced coffee or tea, packaged snacks, bakery item (such as a cake pop or cookie), Siren Logo Plastic To-Go Cold Cup 24oz, or a Siren Logo Plastic Hot Cup 16oz
      • 200 Stars: Grab a free handcrafted drink (including Cold Brew, Lattes, and more) or a hot breakfast item.
      • 300 Stars: Indulge in a free protein box, salad, or sandwich, or take home a bag of coffee!
      • 400 Stars: Signature mug, drink tumbler, or select coffee merch (you’ll pay the difference if the cost is over $20).

As noted above, reloading your Starbucks card and paying directly on the app allows you to receive two stars for every dollar. If you pay with your card or cash, you can still scan for rewards and will get one star for every dollar. If you bring a reusable Starbucks cup, you’ll also save 10¢ with every purchase!
