Starbucks just made Wednesdays even better! ☕️

Today, August 9th is the last Wednesday that Starbucks Rewards Members can score 50% off a cold drink after 12 pm (limit one per person)!

Before you swing by your local Starbucks, be sure to apply the coupon to your account when ordering ahead (found in the “Offers” tab of the Starbucks app), or ask your barista to apply it for you.

Note that the offer is valid today, 8/9/23 only, after 12 p.m. local time at participating stores. This coupon can only be used once per Wednesday and excludes bottled or canned drinks. It’s also not available through DoorDash or Uber Eats.

    The app mentioned asking the barista. I asked and it was applied.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! Thanks for mentioning that, Kimsole. πŸ’“ That was an option with the coupon for last week. Glad you were able to score a drink last week on the cheap! πŸ™Œ

  2. riss

    I got the email, but it’s not under my offer in the app. Maybe it’ll show up tomorrow. I hope I don’t forget.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You may also be able to ask the Barista to apply it for you if you don’t find it in your app Wednesday. πŸ’•

  3. Mary

    I’ve never gotten offers. I’ve redownloaded the app and logged back in but still none. I also don’t get any emails. I have a rewards account but not the benefits of it for some reason. Any tips or ideas on what may be going on

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Bummer! That does sound frustrating. I wonder if creating a new account might work better for you. If not, maybe reach out to customer service to see if they can look into it. Hoping you can start grabbing those benefits soon! 🀞❀️

    • riss

      Yes to customer service. It may take a day to get a reply, but they’re really helpful. They may even give you a discount or a freebie. They’ve done so in the past.

    • dylanfan

      Have you ever added a payment method and purchased something? That happened to my moms account and after a purchase she started to get offers and got the birthday drink

  4. Minnie

    Is it one per person?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! It has a limit of one per person. πŸ€—

    • Meirong

      I think you can only use once. I used on the first Wednesday 7/19. When I place an order on 7/26 the discount coupon is not there anymore.

      • Meirong

        Even though some people said it limits one per week which is not true

        • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

          Hey there Meirong! Our Hip sidekick, Cam, has been able to snag the Wednesday offer last week and this week. If you’re having troubles redeeming, be sure to ask the barista to see if they can manually apply the discount for you. πŸ€— It does seem that it is limited to one drink per person on those promotions. πŸ’•

  5. Roxanne

    Can you go in store with kids and have them each place their own order to get the 50%off? Or it’s it like one per family?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Roxanne! It appears to have a limit of one per account. πŸ’• You could always check with your store to be sure how they might honor it for you. πŸ€—

  6. David

    Thank you. I subscribed today for the first time. I installed the app in my cellphone. I did not see any coupon in the app. I went to the store, and the barista scanned a QR code in the app of my cellphone, and I got 50% discount. I will go again the next two Wednesdays. Good deal

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, David! So glad to hear the barista was able to get the coupon applied for you to snag your half-priced drink! πŸ™ŒπŸ’ž

  7. Kaylee

    Got it! So now what’s the best summer drink??

  8. Jessica

    Does anyone know if you can use this at Target locations? Our Target store said we can’t use points for merch and they don’t have a QR code scanner, so they can’t do anything with a QR code. It’s something with their registers πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Jessica! Some have been saying that this is not valid at their Target. You could always call in to your nearby locations to be sure before heading out. Hoping you can grab a yummy drink on the cheap today! 🀞❀️

      • Jessica


        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          You bet! πŸ€—

  9. KellZoll

    If this helps anyone, I couldn’t see my coupon until I got to the “review order” section in the app. Then I just had to click “apply.”

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for mentioning this helpful tip on where to find the coupon, KellZoll! πŸ’• Much appreciated! πŸ€—

  10. rn404

    what’s a good non-coffee drink to use for this offer

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey there! Their iced herbal teas may be a good option. Hope this helps! πŸ’•
