    The links aren’t working.
    But I want to thank you for all of your amazing work on this site! Keep up the great work. You save me hundreds every year.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I just updated the links, Lpmousse! Try again!

  2. Wren

    Thanks for the reminder. I feel like this one takes a lot of interaction. I don’t want to interact, I just want free stars 🤣😉

  3. Diana

    How is 500 stars an $18 value.. i have less than 400 and thats cost me $80-100?

    • Andrea

      What you can redeem 500 stars for is worth up to $18

      • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

        Thanks, Andrea!

      • Suzanne

        For 500 stars you can get 10 Venti (regular) coffees; value = about $26.

  4. Jess

    I won 60 stars yesterday. I don’t go to Starbucks often so I have no clue what that means lol

  5. MeliH

    Don’t forget you can scroll down on the game board page and use the link to request 2 free plays per day if you’re not making a purchase 😁

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks, MeliH!

  6. Starbucks Sucks

    I hate Starbucks Dunkin forever

    • mel

      I actually prefer Dunkin’s KCups over the stand alone store. IDK what they do to brew, but no matter what I get, it’s like drinking sludge! Starbucks, though, is always consistent for me no matter the location and what I order.

      • jenn

        Ha, I didn’t think sbux knew the meaning of the word consistent! Drives me nuts! Been paying $5-$10 per day for at least 6yrs (probably closer to 10yrs)…I would think by now I could find at least 1 location that makes good caramel macchiatos at least 75% of the time, but I’ve lost hope that 1 exists. 1 barista said if the shots aren’t added to the milk right away they become bitter, which makes sense…they’re often so busy that they can’t or don’t add them right away. If that drink requires specific steps to make it taste like it should for $5, then damn it every barista should be perfectly aware of that, but most just think I’m crazy when I tell them it tastes bitter. They need to go back to sbux school if they have no clue what makes it taste bitter & how to fix it.

    • Emily Gable

      There’s only like 3 Dunkin Donuts in my state. Lol. I really liked Tim Hortons, but most of those locations have closed now.
      Starbucks is where it’s at where I live. 🙂

  7. E

    I won 60 stars today! Yay! I can then use them when I get my birthday drink later this month!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Woot Woot!

  8. Courtney

    Why does it say I’m ineligible?

  9. hrosana

    I won 10 stars earlier today

  10. Louie2

    I actually won a bag of Starbucks reserve coffee today. Bad news, will ship 8-10 weeks after game ends. Who even uses bags of coffee anymore?

    • Elvira

      I would love that prize. I grind my coffee fresh every morning.

    • Laurie Walker

      I do. All the time.

  11. Sarah C

    Does anyone know if there’s a max number of stars I can keep in my account? I know they do expire at some point but I’m hoping there is not a maximum.

    • Laura

      I don’t think there’s a maximum, but they do expire. I can’t remember how long you have to use them though.

    • Jillian

      No maximum. They expire either 3 or 6 months after you receive them.

  12. cherneva

    Do you get a free play everyday or just once?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      It appears you can grab it daily! I did find this in the details – “Entrants can receive a maximum of two plays per day.” Hope that helps!

  13. hrosana

    I won 500 stars 😁😍

  14. Katrinka A Solomon

    Woohoo, Me Too, I couldn’t believe it!! 560 so far and all from free play game pieces.

  15. Christine Yvonne Groce

    anybody know what the rare piece is to win the trip?

  16. Katherine bobrowski

    The Starbucks summer game is not working right now at all again

  17. Joel K

    This game is ridiculous. I have 2 out of 3 in every game category, no instant wins, and zero bonus stars. At least in some of their other promotions you could actually win something.

  18. G

    I read there are 3 winners for the grand prize of a trip to Costa Rica. Is there a link showing how many already won? I have 2 out of 3 game pieces for Costa Rica.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      I’m not finding a list. Maybe one will be available when this ends on the 10th. Hope that helps!
