    I got this offer in my email this morning and reloaded right away. Fingers crossed my local Starbucks has the cold reusable cups – I already own a few, they’re handy!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Woohoo! 🤞 Hope you can snag it, Jessica T!

  2. Michelle W

    The free cup is just the $3 on right?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      The free cup is the 16oz Plastic Cup or a Cold To-Go 24oz Cup pictured above. Hope this helps! 🙌🥰

  3. Jacqueline

    Thanks for the reminder. Received the email as well and hope to snag one as well 🤞🏽

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! You’re welcome, Jacqueline! ❤️

    Any idea how to see if it’s loaded to your acct?

    • loretta

      Go under “Offers” and u should see it there.

      • suzieq-0

        Thanks! I see it!

    • ruptain

      I heard it’s only for select accounts…I was not one of those select accounts apparently 🙁

      • Mary Vezino

        I got the email and husband didn’t. I went to his account and added 10 dollars through his PayPal and now he has the offer for it. I would go ahead and try it.

  5. loretta

    Got one! Lowest I could add was $10, so just did that since $5 wasn’t available.

  6. Laura

    I reloaded as soon as I got the email, but no coupon for the free cup?!?!?! 🙁

    • WENDY

      Check your app “offers”. It showed up as soon as I reloaded.

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        Thanks so much for the helpful comment, Wendy! 🤗

  7. Janet demonbreun

    I added $10 to my Starbucks app and paid via PayPal but I didn’t get anything for a cup?

  8. Melissa

    I added $10 but no coupon yet ☹️ How long should it take to get coupon??

  9. Teresa

    Got the coupon in my account! Click on “Offers” & there is a coupon available! I got the email this morning and reloaded my card right away so I wouldn’t miss out. This is a great deal!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! Thanks for sharing how you snagged it, Teresa! Good to know!

  10. justina

    SWEET! Was worried reading the comments, each Starbucks Paypal offer is different, a little tricky but all ok! I made sure to use the APP, I DID NOT get an email, I RELOADED (or make a purchase, seems to be the details), I ADDED my APP minimum $10 with PAYPAL, the $10 added to my EXISTING CARD balance, I had to CLOSE the APP and reopen, checked offers, there IT IS! SWEET! THANKS JAINA & CHELSEY & Hip2Save!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Woohoo! You’re welcome, Justina! Thank YOU for sharing how you snagged the offer!

    • Justina

      grabbed it today, was a little special experience, lol, that I will write in to starbucks about, not sure if it was a just my location thing or all locations, but I had to do in store pickup/selection in the end and in app inventory was SOOO wrong, thought I’d have to get the hot cup but ended up with the cold cup that I wanted, but it was special, lol—note: if you have a special experience too, then order it in the app for in store pickup, kinda gives you a record to tell corporate about and make them check their inventory well for your order by having that record, lol, smh, it was a different crew in there today, no tip for them today, they had all kinds of excuses to not work, smh

  11. Rey

    What is the free reusable cup for?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Rey! It is a reusable cup for you to keep.

  12. BrianaKing

    I see the coupon under “offers” in the app, but when I showed the coupon for the free cup to the barista, he said they don’t have any way to redeem it.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh darn! SO very sorry to hear this. I wonder if the store manager or another location may be able to redeem it for you. 💞

    • HipMomof3

      I found this in the fine print, hope it helps you find a location near you to redeem: Visit the Starbucks Store Locator at and search for locations honoring “Digital Rewards”

  13. Christy

    I did it but never got the offer in my “offers” 😞

    • Ashley

      Same here! No email, no offer so I added $10 to existing card, closed app, reopened and still no offer! Darn

      • Ashley

        Got it! I was a little too fast for the app to update! Thank you Hip2Save!!

  14. Brindha

    Got the offer in the app. I did the paypal purchase in the app too. I did get the email. So i go to the store pick the cup i want and use the coupon on checkout?

    • justina

      it’s a choice of the exact hot and cold in the main picture of this post, enjoy! i see the 2 choices in the app too on the menu

    • justina

      it’s the exact 2 in the main picture of this post, enjoy! i see them on the app menu too

  15. suzieq-0

    Got mine today! Easy!

  16. loretta

    Here’s some helpful info in case your store is clueless as to how to use it… I tried placing a mobile order today and then apply the free cup offer to my order. I kept getting an error message. I went in the store and spoke with a manager who hadn’t seen the emailed offer yet from PayPal. Once you load $10 to your SB account (had to do $10 because $5 denomination isn’t available), you then will be sent the free cup offer to your reward tab. There will be a 4 digit code THEY have to input into the register and it will deduct the $3.95 for the free cup. Hope this helps!! I got my free cold cup today and was happy as a clam! Lol

    • noetab

      So, they need to scan the cup and then give the code it will deduct after payment?

  17. lbmomma

    Just picked up my cold cup. Worked perfectly. Thanks!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      SO glad to hear that! You’re most welcome!

  18. MrsG

    I reloaded $10, for the offer within a few minutes, and redeemed it at Starbucks today!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Woohoo! 🎉

  19. AuntT

    I got one! Thanks so much ❤️

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re so welcome!

  20. Joy

    Loaded $10 & did receive the offer! Hopefully, my local store has cold cups when I redeem my coupon!

  21. Liz W

    Went to 2 locations and they did not know how to redeem the coupon in my app. And we could not find info on how to add the coupon to my app so that I could pay via scanning my phone. So I walked away without the cup. So frustrating. Did Starbucks not alert the stores with the redemption info. They should have added the free cup to our accounts as a reward. That would be so much easier.

    • justina

      I redeemed in a mobile app order for in store pickup–once you place it in your cart, the coupon can be applied-see comments though, another lady gives tips on cashier process

      • EAWSave

        Thanks so much!

  22. Teresa

    I got my free cup today! It was quite the to-do to get it. First, the barista told me Starbucks doesn’t have coupons. Then, the manager came over and said I don’t know what that is. Then, she looked again and said it was for a free drink and walked away. And I told them both it is for free cup. The manager came back and looked at it and said it was for something with PayPal. So I left the line and talked to the manager on the side and I asked her to try the code that’s on the coupon. So, she went to the register and tried it and was shocked that it took off the amount, the whole amount, for the reusable cup. She was so frustrated with me continuing to insist that the coupon was for Starbucks and for a reusable cup that I’m surprised she didn’t lose her temper. But, both of us were calm and discussed things nicely end it all worked out. I was the first one person to get the free cup from at her store. And yes it is the exact cup in the picture. Regular price is $3.95. But hey, I got it for free. Starting today, when we use a reusable cup in the store we get 25 stars and a $.10 discount. More free drinks!!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      What an ordeal, Teresa! All in all, it turned out good and I’m glad you got your cup! 🤗🥰

  23. Laura

    I paid via PayPal and got nothing. No email, no coupon offer in app. Closed app and reopened. I’m not sure what else to do. The girl on the windows e had no idea what I was talking about. Not sure how to get it at this point

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Bummer! We just checked on this Laura and we’re still finding the offer available. Were you able to spend at least $5 or more? It seems this also may vary by location, if there’s another Starbucks near you to check with. Hoping this is helpful!

  24. Dianna C

    I did this on April 18th. Added $20 from Paypal to Starbucks. Didn’t get ANYTHING 😡 I called PayPal today (4-30-2022) I was told email was sent to certain PayPal accounts. I am very disappointed that I didn’t get offer😡 I will be definitely cautious about Hip2Save’s promoting a deal that isn’t for everyone ☹️

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Dianna!
      I am so sorry that the offer did not work out for you as expected. Unfortunately, this offer had limited availability so it may have reached the limit prior to April 30th. I hope that you are able to use the $20 loaded on your Starbucks card to save on an upcoming drink or treat offer – hoping they will surprise us with a BOGO offer soon!❤️

  25. Kay

    I have the coupon loaded in my app but every time I try to use it, it says I don’t qualify.
