Starbucks recently changed their rewards redemption amounts…

Starbucks recently made some changes regarding how many stars you need to redeem for freebies. If you take a look at the newly updated redemption options in their app, you’ll now see that most of the offerings have increased anywhere from 50 to a whopping 100 more stars for redemption. Ouch! That definitely hurts a little.

On the upside, if an iced coffee or tea was previously your go-to for a free drink, you can now snag those for just 100 stars instead of 150. Or if you’ve been working towards a free bag of prepackaged coffee, you’ll be excited to see that you can snag that freebie for 100 stars less than you previously could. 🎉

Plus, Starbucks has also expanded the options available to redeem for 100 stars by adding packaged snacks, and reusable plastic cups to the lineup.

Here’s how the Starbucks Rewards program has changed…

  • 25 Stars: Swap in any milk substitutions, syrups, or an extra shot of espresso free of charge. – no change!
  • 100 Stars (increased from 50): Enjoy a free coffee, iced coffee or tea, packaged snacks, bakery item (such as a cake pop or cookie), Siren Logo Plastic To-Go Cold Cup 24oz, or a Siren Logo Plastic Hot Cup 16oz
  • 200 Stars (increased from 150): Grab a free handcrafted drink (including Cold Brew, Lattes, and more) or a hot breakfast item.
  • 300 Stars (increased from 200): Indulge in a free protein box, salad, or sandwich, or take home a bag of coffee (coffee was previously 400 stars)!
  • 400 Stars: Signature mug, drink tumbler, or select coffee merch (you’ll pay the difference if the cost is over $20).

Reloading your Starbucks card and paying directly on the app allows you to receive two stars for every dollar. If you pay with your card or cash, you can still scan for rewards and will get one star for every dollar. If you bring a reusable Starbucks cup, you’ll also save 10¢ with every purchase!

Everyone should be a rewards member! Here’s why…

Whether you’re a regular customer or just stop in on occasion, the Starbucks Rewards Program is a must! First of all, it’s completely free to join. Aside from earning stars for every purchase, they frequently offer special promotions to earn bonus stars.

Plus, you need to be a member when they offer Starbucks for Life and other instant win games to score free stars, free drinks, gift cards and so much more.

Here’s a quick overview of how their rewards program works. First, you create an account, which you can do on the app to fully access everything. Then you can start ordering drinks in-store or ahead for pickup and pay however you’d like: cash, card, or in-app. Finally, you earn stars that you can redeem for free treats!

Starbucks will even celebrate your birthday with a gift. 🎁

If there’s one place that is just as excited about your special day as you are, it’s Starbucks! With a rewards membership, enjoy a free drink of your choice at any size!

Sometimes, the rewards app will also have happy hours where you get two drinks for one price and other games that give you extra points. If you go to Starbucks and aren’t a rewards member yet, you’re seriously missing out!

    Having a hard time getting the free Starbucks drink from My Verizon to appear on my Starbucks app. Any tips? Thanks!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Minka! Here’s the details from this post that we shared on the Verizon reward for you – “Check your My Verizon App for 100 Free Starbucks Stars (enough for a free coffee or tea)! You’ll find the offer in the ‘Featured Rewards’ section and you’ll receive a unique code that can be applied in the Starbucks app to score your free stars. Note that it may take up to 24 hours for the stars to be loaded into your account.” Hoping this might be helpful! 🤞💓

      • Minka

        It’s been over 24 hours. I remember last time deleting and reinstalling the app helped. It hasn’t this time. Unless there’s another step I’m forgetting…

        • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

          Darn! Sorry you’re not seeing it pop-up in the app still, Minka! I was going to recommend a possible delete and re-install of the app as well, but if you’ve already tried this, you might reach out to Verizon Up customer service at 866-895-5579, to see if they have some helpful suggestions for you on this. ❤️🤞
