    I just did this. Very easy!

    • Jessica (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Woohoo! So happy to hear you were able to snag this! 🙂

    • Ashley Milford

      It finally worked when I logged out and back in. I re-logged into my starbucks account on the right hand panel

  2. Kara

    Worked for me! Thanks!

    I keep getting transaction declined no matter which credit card I use. Maybe I’ll try again later.

    • Jessica (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Darn! Yes, perhaps try again a bit later, maybe try using a different browser or device? Hope you’ll be able to snag it!

      I had that issue last year I had to open a whole new account with a different email then add my cards to the new account and add my CCs. It worked fine after that.

    • Mel

      Try signing out of your Starbucks account in outlook and log in again. Works for me that way.

      • staceychiu

        Thanks for the tip, Mel! I had the same issue and your tip worked for me.

      • Laura

        Can you please tell me how to sign out of Starbucks in Outlook?

      • sharon

        You guys are the best test support ever! Signing out and then back it worked! Cha-ching! 🙂

    • Ashley Milford

    I’m not understanding something. I can’t figure it out!

    • 👄LILY👄

      Me either! I don*t get!

      • Sam

        I can’t figure it out. It looks difficult to me😔

    • Mel

      Basically you need a outlook/hotmail email. Log in and add the plug in via the link above. Once done, send a message, find a button that has the Starbucks logo on it. Log in to Starbucks and purchase the eGift and send. Bonus received instantly

      • Mindy Trenton

    I got one of the $5 cards. When does the second $5 bonus card arrive?

    • Genesis Nieves

      Nevermind, refreshed my email and got it. Thanks as always, H2S!

  9. Sarah

    Thank you!! I had to read through the comments as well to assist (my card was declining too until I signed out and signed back and it worked). LOVE free Starbucks money. Thank you so much Collin and team!

    • Kimberly (Stylish Sidekick)

      You’re welcome Sarah! Glad you were able to get it to work!

  10. Jam

    Are you guys doing it on your cellphone or computers? To be honest I don’t get it. Lol

  11. Jenn

    How can I do this from my IPhone?? I logged into Outlook, but I don’t see anywhere to send a Starbucks e-gift in Outlook? I’m so confused, somebody please help:) Or, can I only do this via desktop computer? Thanks!

    • cindy

      I did mine on computer. Once the starbucks add in was in my apps, I started a new email to my account. I found the little icon somewhere around the email. I clicked on it and followed the instructions to get mine. Everything worked out for me.

      • Jenn

        Ahhhh, ok…so I have the add on in. I don’t see anywhere to click the “send an e-gift” from Starbucks!! I’m so dumb, please help.

  12. Lau

    Way too complicated for me or so it seems. Tried it several times. I just don’t see the connection (outlook/Starbucks). Oh well…

  13. Debbie Sibert Edwards

    I was trying on my iphone and could not get it to work, so when I switched to my laptop worked perfectly. I did have trouble getting my card to send, kept getting card declined. Log out and log back in and it works perfectly!! I have my fueled my coffee addiction!!

  14. Jessica

    Just sent one to my coworker. What a nice surprise.

  15. Amy

    I keep getting the ‘transaction declined’ message. Tried about 1000x with no luck. I’m done. ha!

  16. Angela

    I tried on my iPad and it would not work. I switched to a computer and it worked perfectly. Bonus card came immediately. Thanks!

    • Kimberly (Stylish Sidekick)

      You’re welcome Angela!

  17. Savvysaver

    Whew that took a lot of work, but thank you so much!!!

  18. char

    Thank you! Account was running low..just in time to try all those new summer drinks!! 😉

  19. Another Michelle

    I keep getting declined as well. This deal is convoluted.

  20. janet

    can i buy with a starbucks gift card already- like transfer $5 and get $5?

  21. Kathy

    I had problems in Chrome, but was okay in IE. (Also happens to me when I’m trying to purchase at

  22. Abby

    I did it! A little complicated but not too bad if you follow the steps.

  23. Q

    Finally got this to work had to use my laptop. Thanks for all the awesome deals today!

  24. Patti

    Has anyone gotten it to work on iPhone? I try to add SB add on but don’t see it ever

  25. Jenn

    Oh my goodness, cannot figure out how to do this! None of the directions seem to work and can’t figure out the outlook thing!

  26. Steve

    I just got it to work, the missing piece of information here is what to do after you install the add in.
    After some searching I found this: I’ve installed the Starbucks for Outlook add-in, but how do I use it?
    After installing the add-in, you will see a “Send eGift” ribbon button in Email compose windows and a “Meet at Starbucks” ribbon button in Meeting compose windows. Clicking these buttons will open the add-in.

    Look for a small starbucks logo ont he bottom right after you compose a new message, click that it will prompt you to log in then you can get a gift card. You need to select “Other” to do only $5. It worked for me and my $5 was instantly sent.

    Many thanks, if you have time its worth it…

    • Jessica (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for the tips, Steve! 😀

  27. Preetha

    Does anyone know if this offer is still available??

  28. gentledogwalker

    Wow! took me two hours before I could figure it all out. don’t know what I was missing….
    after logging out of everything, rebooting computer, etc. it worked. I was not going to give up.
    good luck everyone. read other comments for help and FAQS on outlook/starbucks website.

  29. deb

    it won’t let me log in to my Starbucks act. I changed the password & it still won’t let me in….grrrr

  30. Sarah Kreinheder

    I successfully sent the $5 gift card but haven’t received my bonus. I know it says it may take up to 72 hours….did everyone else receive theirs instantly?

  31. Sarah

    I was able to send the gift card too but haven’t received my bonus either. Any one else still waiting?

  32. Patty

    I know this is almost a week old but I never did get my $5 bonus. Anyone else at this point?

  33. Leslie

    I didn’t receive the bonus either
