Treat Dad (or Even Yourself) to Starbucks & Get an Extra $5 Bonus!

Through June 14th or while supplies last, score a FREE $5 Starbucks Bonus eGift Card when you buy ANY Starbucks eGift Card worth $25 or more in the Starbucks app. You can even send a $25 eGift card to yourself and still get the $5 bonus – we personally tested this and it worked perfectly!

Note that only 150,000 bonus cards are available and they are likely to go fast. There is a limit of one bonus card per account.

The PayPal payment method does NOT seem to be working on this offer. Make sure you pay with a credit card to get the $5 bonus.

  2. Suzanne

    Thank you! Hope I get the bonus!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, Suzanne!

  3. Taylor

    Does anyone know if you can purchase say 5 $5 cards and this work?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Taylor, you’ll need to purchase just one card with at least $25 to get the deal. You can’t get the deal purchasing multiples.

    • Vivian

      Buy the one gift card then go in store to split them into smaller physical cards

  4. Melanie

    Worked like a charm. Thanks 🙂

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh perfect! You’re welcome, Melanie!

  5. Emily

    I loaded $25 and got $0 bonus 🙁

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Emily, if you paid with PayPal it will not work. If you pay with a credit card you can still get it.

    • nikki

      I haven’t either…not happy

  6. Kass

    Thanks! Nothing like free coffee $

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Agreed, Kass!

  7. TerriP

    Offer didn’t work for me. I wonder if they was hit their quota of the max number of app users to redeem the deal. No biggie- we will still use the $25 gift card.

    • riss

      I just paid for mine and got the free $5 right away. Maybe you should call/ email their customer service. They’re usually very good in resolving these issues. Unless this offer varies by account or invite only.

  8. riss

    This is perfect. My app balance was like $1 and I was just gonna put money in to my card today or tomorrow. And i got the free $5 in just 5 seconds after i paid. Thanks, Hip2save! I wouldn’t have known about this otherwise. I never read the Starbucks inbox.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You are so welcome, riss!

  9. Alice

    For some reason, only my spouse received this promo (but not my account), thank you for posting!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome! Glad they received it!

  10. Jennifer

    Thank you! Perfect timing!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You are welcome, Jennifer!

  11. Cakes

    It keeps telling me there is a problem & try again

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      We have noticed that you cannot use PayPal for this offer. Make sure you have an updated credit card and try again, Cakes.

      • nikki

        Great…would have been nice to know that. Hopefully customer service takes care of it.

        • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

          Sorry, nikki! We just figured it out.

  12. April Rose

    Yay! Thanks so much. I am taking my co- workers to Starbucks on Monday for a birthday meeting so this is awesome!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      How sweet! You’re SO welcome! Enjoy!

  13. KraftyKim

    Thanks so much! I wouldn’t have seen it otherwise!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, KraftyKim!

    • KraftyKim

      Whoops! I initially paid with PayPal & didn’t get the $5 gift. Paid with cc and it came immediately! Thanks again for the tip. My fault for not reading the comments first! 😉

  17. Juma

    Thanks for posting I had less than $2.00 on my account and was waiting for a deal. Thanks again

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, Juma!

  18. Lpmousse

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for letting us know, Lpmousse!

  19. Lauren

    Worked great for me!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      So glad to hear that, Lauren!

  20. j.s.

    odd question…if i buy this gift card in an app, can I load it onto my husband’s gold card? he uses a “work phone” so he doesn’t use starbucks app…

    • riss

      You should be able to do that coz it only asks for the recipient’s email. Then he can redeem it and put it on his account.

    • Juma

      Just email it to him and when he opens email it has directions on redeeming and ask if you want to load to card. Then once it loads to card he can transfer that card amount to his main card. I have like 5 different cards tied to my account as gifts along with my gold card, so I transfer everything over to that one.

  21. Wassup

    Thank you! Would not have thought to check my inbox until these were gone. Appreciate the heads-up!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome! SO happy we could help you score this one!

  22. shop4mybabies

  23. Jennifer

    Thank you for this deal. I needed to reload my gold card. Always good to have a bonus. 😉

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SO true! You’re welcome!

  24. cat

    How will we know if the free GC is still available? I don’t wanna buy a card only to find out they are all gone.

    • Sarah C

      Just worked for me! 7:21 am EST on June 14

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        Yay! Thanks so much for the helpful comment!

  25. Kimberly

    Won’t work for me. On the app it says “system error” On the desktop it says, “something went wrong, try again.” 🙁 I’ll keep trying. Seems like too many people trying simultaneously are crashing the system.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes, it may be getting a lot of traffic. Maybe wait a bit and try again. Hoping it works for you soon!

    • Angela

      I was having issues, make sure you are using a current credit card.

  26. Jill

    Worked great! ThNk you June 14 7:45 am CST

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! Glad to hear it, Jill! You’re so welcome!

  27. Christina White

  33. Lu

    Thanks much! Just did this deal and got both the gift card and bonus right away! 🙂

      You’re very welcome Lu!

  34. Amanda Miller

    Just did this for myself and added $30 to my card in a matter of minutes. Thanks for the heads up!

  35. Felice

    Worked like a charm for me just now (about 10pm CST) so you should still be able to redeem the offer (I used my Chase CC which is also offering 5% back right now on Starbucks purchases so score for me).

  36. Jenn

    Thank you! I did this about 9 hours ago,paid with PayPal and received the bonus $5 this am.

  37. Mparanz

    Does this work with Masterpass because my husband sent me one and it didn’t work maybe they are all out

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      They only had a limited number. It may be out now if you paid by Credit Card or Masterpass, Mparanz.
