  1. Sam Baker

    Yay! Thanks so much.

    • Emilie

      I can’t get the Apple Pay to work any suggestions?

      • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

        Hi there! Were you able to follow each detailed step?

        • Emilie

          I did and I get it to the screen to pay and it won’t let me select anything….

          • Laura

            Do you have a credit or debit card loaded into ο£Ώ pay ?

          • easybuckfinder

            Sounds like you are not doing it right. You buy the gift card from an iMessage, not from the starbucks app.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re very welcome!

  2. Daniela

    Detailed for sure, my goodness.

  3. Sara

    Yay!!! Got it!!! πŸ™‚

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Glad you could snag it!

  4. Grace

    Thank you!!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re welcome Grace!

  5. Laura

    Super easy! Thank you

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re very welcome Laura!

  6. Melissa

    I’m a dummy and entered my own number, which apparently isn’t really an option? It went through and I got the $5 bonus, but didn’t receive an imessage with the original $5 .. I contacted them to see what I could do.

    • Mary

      Do feel too bad…I just did the same thing. What did they tell you?

      • Mourrene

        I want to send it to myself since I’m the only person I know who really goes to Starbucks. Can you let us know how it works out?

    • Mel

      Note that once you pay with Apple pay, the eGift doesn’t send out automatically. You need to the eGift from iMessage and send it out.

      • Mel

        select***

        • Melissa

          Ohhhh! Thanks Mel! Didn’t pay close enough attention!

      • Nim

        Mel,
        Thanks that was super helpful! I was able to send it to myself and added to my gold card.

      • Kristy

        Thank you! I would have never figured it out otherwise. lol

      • Wren

        Thank you Mel! πŸ€—

      • Jessica

        Mel – You are a ROCK STAR!! Thanks so much for the explanation!

      • Kellyfornia

        THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!! I specifically came to the comments in hopes that somebody could explain since I couldn’t figure it out.

  7. Arianne

    Wow, cool!! Took me a minute to setup Apple Pay, but other than that..easy! Thanks! β˜•οΈ

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re very welcome Arianne!

  8. Rachel

    Has anyone heard from the person you sent it to and how they got it? I did it… and got a receipt but nothing showed up on their end

    • Mel

      Just copying my own words again…
      Note that once you pay with Apple pay, the eGift doesn’t send out automatically. You need to select the eGift from iMessage and send it out manually.

      • Rachel

        Thanks. I don’t think your message had posted when I asked. That was definitely what was wrong! Thanks again!

      • Stephanie

        Woo! Fixed my issue. Not sure I’ll get the $5 though. I just sent it.

  9. Wren

    Thank you H2S!! β˜•οΈ

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re so welcome!

  10. Marla

    Thanks!!! Gave my niece a early Easter gift!!!!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      How sweet! You’re most welcome!

  11. Melissa

    Any clue how to actually use the egift card? On mine it just says “Tap to use this gift card” but it doesn’t bring up a bar code or anything … ?

    • Mel

      I’m guessing you sent it to yourself, what I did also πŸ˜‰ Yeah, you will not be able to view it on the phone for some reason, but try viewing the gift in a Mac or ipad. Works for me.

    • Holly

      I sent the card to myself, so when I received the gift card iMessage I tapped on the eGift card and then selected the option to β€œSave to the Starbucks app and join Starbucks Rewards.”

      I’m already a Starbucks rewards member, but clicking that automatically opened up the app and gave me the option to add the new gift card to my existing Starbucks account. But this also showed me the full card number and PIN, which I then just opted to transfer over to my Starbucks Gold card at the Starbucks website.

      It sounds like a lot of work/a little tricky, but only took me maybe a minute total once I’d signed in to my Starbucks account on my PC. πŸ™‚

      • Melissa

        Thanks, got it. Had to use ipad.

  12. Nicole

    So I received the iMessage with the gift card and it says to tap it to use this card. When I do it just shows me the dollar amount and order number. Any suggestions?

  13. Stefanie

    Does the person I’m sending it to have to be using an iPhone as well? My husband’s work phone is an iPhone but neither of our personal phones are, and when I try to submit the payment, it says payment not complete and then just cancels the whole thing out.

    • Frecklelily

      Mine is not taking payment either! I’m sending it to my husband that has an iPhone.

      • Stefanie

        It keeps telling me payment not completed, and I cannot for the life of me figure out why. So sad πŸ™

        • Frecklelily

          Exactly! ☹️

        • Ger

          Mine is doing the same thing! When I go to use my Touch ID to complete payment, it’s saying payment not complete & card declined?!? Weird. I know I have $$$ in there! Lol πŸ€£πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

          • Frecklelily

            I even went to Apple Pay on the Chick-fil-A app to make sure it was working. That went through just fine…but THIS….nope.

    • Heather Scott

      I sent one to my mom who has a Galaxy, and it worked perfect, she opened it no problem! Hope that helps!

    • Stefanie

      Mine turned out to be because my credit card company needed to call and verify it with me first, which they did and now it’s working.

  14. Holly

    Thanks so much for this! I sent the iMessage gift card to myself. πŸ˜‰

    For those asking how to use the egift card if you send it to yourself, when I received the iMessage I tapped on the eGift card and then selected the option to “Save to the Starbucks app and join Starbucks Rewards.”

    I’m already a Starbucks rewards member, but clicking that opened up the app and gave me the option to add the new gift card to my existing Starbucks account. But this also showed me the full card number and PIN, which I then just opted to transfer over to my Starbucks Gold card at the Starbucks website.

    It sounds like a lot of work/a little tricky, but only took me maybe a minute total once I’d signed in to my Starbucks account on my PC. πŸ™‚

    • Melissa

      Thanks Holly – your instructions worked. Just to add on – also sent this to myself. On my iphone, they showed an image of the card, but there was nothing to do with it.

      When I opened it on my ipad (as Mel suggested) it looked different. There is a greed button on the bottom right of the image of the gift card that says “Use Your Gift Card”. This will give you the option of saving it to your existing card or viewing the card # & pin. Hope this helps some others. Can’t figure out why it would view differently on ipad vs iphone, but it worked!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Thanks for the helpful feedback Holly! You’re very welcome!

  15. t.cooper

    Is this just for iphone users?

    • Laura

      Yes. Apple Pay is only for iPhones

  16. Sue Pultorak

    I’m assuming this only works if you have an apple device???

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yes.

  17. Daniela

    My mom has Android and she received the link fine. She clicked and saw a virtual gift card. The giver has to to have Apple Pay but not the receiver.

  18. Rachel

    Help! I’m following all the steps as I should, but when I click set up Apple Pay, I can’t figure out what to do from there. I already have a credit card set up in Apple Pay, so I don’t know what’s wrong.

    TIA!!

    • Jen

      Try another card! For some reason my Discover didn’t work, but Chase did.

  19. Olivia

    Do you have to open a message from a conversation you already have? Or a new message?

  20. Ali

    Thank you!

    • Kimberly (Stylish Sidekick)

      You’re welcome! πŸ˜€

  21. Lauren

    Thanks for posting! This is awesome and I’m impressed with how simple it is to send a gift card this way. I’ll be using this often to send friends and loved ones a pick-me-up 😊

    • Kimberly (Stylish Sidekick)

      You’re welcome Lauren! πŸ™‚

  22. Liz

    I have an iPhone 5 and Apple Pay is not supported in it. Does anyone know any other way to get this? If so, please let me know! TIA

    • Laura

      You have to have a phone that has Apple Pay – so no sorry

  23. kim

    do we have to spend the whole giftcard in one trip?

    • Laura

      No

  24. Jazzie

    Is there a limit on how many cards I can gift and get $5.00 for me??
    I gift to myself once wondering if I can do it again?

    • Laura

      One time

    • Jallice

      How many Apple phones do you have

  25. Mimi

    Awesome, thanks!!! Hubby sent me one since he has Apple Pay and I don’t. Both gift cards were available immediately πŸ™‚

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      How sweet! Glad you could snag the offer! πŸ˜‰ You’re most welcome!

  26. Erin

    Love these Starbucks deals! Thank you!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re welcome Erin! Enjoy!

  27. Yevette

    Just worked for me:) Thank you!!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Perfect! You’re so welcome!

  28. Brittany C

    Thanks! I set up Apple Pay and sent one to my husband and then had him send me one, too. Woohoo!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Awesome! YW!

  29. Katlyn

    Thank you! Just perfect timing. I used up my Starbucks $$ today. Love these deals. You guys are awesome!!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Thanks for the sweet comment! You’re most welcome! Enjoy!

  30. Marni

    Thanks so much!!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re welcome Marni!

  31. LJ

    Did this yesterday and sent the giftcard to myself – worked out and received the extra $5 giftcard email right after- thank you πŸ™‚

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re very welcome!

    • allison cooper

      Did it take a little while to get the $5? I got the extra $5 e-mail but didn’t get the original one I paid for (looked in my e-mail cuz I sent it to myself).

  32. Melanie

    anyone know if this is still working?

    • Jen

      Yes, I just did it about an hour ago and it was still working then!

      • Melanie

        Thanks!

  33. Niki

    Bummer I get the whole process done and it won’t let me finish because my finger print won’t match

  34. Kalns

    It worked for me at 7:20am CST. Thank you!!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re so welcome!

  35. Tara

    Got it! Thank you! I was confused about how to actually get the gift card as well but thanks to the wonder ladies in the comments I figured it out☺

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Glad to hear that! You’re welcome Tara!

  36. April

    I don’t have an Iphone πŸ™

    • Jade

      Don’t feel left out. I have an android

  37. Maria

    Thank you! Sent one to hubby and got one for me. πŸ‘Œ

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay! You’re very welcome!

  38. Savvysaver

    When I try to send mine via iMessage it says card declined. My card has been verified. My bank said it must be on Starbucks’ end, but Starbucks can’t figure it out πŸ™

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Bummer. Maybe wait a moment and try again.

    • Ger

      Mine keeps saying that too!

  39. Candy

    I only received my receipt saying I purchased my gift card but didn’t get the bonus $5 so I might have been after the 45k participants. Not a loss. I like Starbucks regardless.

    • Sarah

      It should be on your email.

  40. Joye

    Got mine and sent one to my daughter

  41. Jessie

    I can’t get this to work, keeps declining my card. Any help? Have contacted my bank and no luck, nothing wrong on their end.

    • Bebe

      My apple pay card was missing a billing address. When I went to pay, it had a red requirement box and I clicked on it and realized it was missing a billing address. Once I added and saved it, I was able to pay with no issues.

    • Jessie

      Finally got this to work! My app was glitching and my imessage gift want loading. But finally everything was smooth! Thanks for all the help. Just completed it all at 12:37p cst

  42. christina muir

    How do you set up apple pay on an Iphone 5? I’ve looked everywhere in settings, but I don’t have any icons for wallet or pay.

  43. Bebe

    Got it! Thanks Mel and Holly for the tips! I was able to send it to myself and got the bonus $5 gc.

  44. Christine

    Do you have to enter your credit/debit card in the apple wallet before making purchase? I’m used visa checkout when I made my purchase.

  45. allison cooper

    Anybody know if this is still working? When I click on the Starbucks Gifts in the iMessage it shows “Sorry, we were not able to process your purchase at this time. Please try again later.”
    No detailed error message πŸ™

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Darn! Maybe wait a moment and try again.

      • allison cooper

        Lol! I’ve been trying for an hour πŸ™‚ I set up Apple Pay this morning but I don’t think it’s being recognized in the app (that’s my guess). The app is running REALLY slow (or maybe it’s just me) so I’m wondering if their servers are bogged down.
        πŸ™ πŸ™

        • Jill

          I’m having the same problem. Oh well! Let us know if you get it to work!

          • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

            Darn! It appears the offer has ended πŸ™

          • allison cooper

            So I rebooted my phone (twice) and then it ‘worked’. Except I got a message in iMessage saying Error, but I got the e-mail for the bonus $5. I don’t know now how to get the paid for $5 (no e-mail was sent)!

            • allison cooper

              Just read above that I should check my mac or iPad to view it in iMessage (iPhone not working to view eGift)

            • Sasha

              I’m having the same issue, I received the email for the bonus $5 but nothing for the original $5 that I paid for.

  46. Mommyof1

    Just worked for me with no problems. Thank You!!

  47. Jessica

    Does anyone know how long it takes to get the original $5
    I got the bonus $5 but I sent the original $5 to myself and did not receive it.

  48. Jenna Walker

    It’s expired? They are still advertising it on their app! That’s ridiculous!

  49. Robin

    It’s all crossed out. Does that mean it’s no longer available?

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yes, it appears to have ended.
