Use a Gift Card to Save at Starbucks

Reader Tip: Use a Gift Card to Save Money at Starbucks


If you're a regular Starbucks patron, reader danakscully64 has a tip on how you can save at your favorite coffee chain. She says:

"If you go to Starbucks even semiregularly, register a gift card. Once you use it five times, you move to green status, which means you get free syrup added and a free soy milk upgrade. It also gives free refills on brewed or iced coffee or tea during the same store visit, free tall (12-fluid-ounce) beverage with one pound of whole bean coffee purchase, and special exclusive offers and coupons. If you earn 30 stars in one year, you move to gold status where every 15 drinks gets you a free drink postcard. You just need 30 drinks a year to keep your gold status. The key is to do individual transactions for drinks to earn a star for each. The registered card brings my Venti Cinnamon Dolce Frappuccino down to about $4 (soy is free, and because they don't have a button for a CD Frapp, they ring it in as a Coffee Frappuccino, add CD, which makes the syrup free)."
