    Thanks for the reminder! I was running low on stars and just won 50 twice!

  2. Mrs C

    Just won 250 stars 🌟!

  3. Rn404

    I’m lost with this game. I played the games but won nothing and also entered the without a purchase twice and nothing. How are you all winning??

    • Mrs C

      You get selected randomly. I played like 10 time and 8 of those time it said “better luck next time” and the other 2 said I was a winner. Then it will have you put in your email to verify you have an account with Starbucks and then you prize will go to the email you put in. You can play as many time as you want, but can only win twice.

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        Thanks so much for your helpful response, Mrs C! 🥰

      • Rn404

        Thank you so much for replying back cause I was
        Anyhow I kept playing all 3 games and no win. I will try later or tomm

        • riss

          You’re not the only one who was clueless. Thanks to Mrs.C for explaining it.

    • Jenny

    I won five stars one time and lost the other game! I will take it ! Thank you guys
    ( I played the first and second game)

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re very welcome! Thanks for letting us know the win you snagged! ❤️

    • Carrie

      You can play as many of the games as you want until you win twice each day! I played about 8 times and won 5 stars and 50 stars.

  5. Amber

    Won 50 twice. Probably entered the game maybe 10-15 times, easy enough. Thanks!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! That’s great, Amber! You’re most welcome! 🤗

  6. Mel

    They require access to your personal info, most importantly… your payment information. That’s a bit sketch.

  7. Rn404

    Also when you enter your information for “2 free plays” what are you entering to win??? Usually they send plays to your email that is what I’m confused about. This game seems like a lot of work this time around

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You are entering to win extra stars or free product coupons as listed above. Hoping you can snag a win soon! 💞🤞

  8. Rhonda

    I won some stars, but when I click from the email to claim them, it says “Uh oh! Looks like you’re not eligible for this offer”, though I’m signed in.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh darn! Maybe wait a moment and try back again. Hoping it works for you soon! 🤞

    • CDog

      Rhonda I had the same (on my phone and laptop) — make sure you turn off any ad blockers! I temporarily turned them off and the links from the email worked.

      • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

        Thanks for mentioning that helpful tip, CDog! 🥰

    • D

      Yes, I got the same message too. I’ve played their other games before so not sure why I can’t play this one…

  9. Sharina

    Glad I read these comments. I gave up and then kept playing and won 10 stars and then 50 stars

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! I’m glad too, Sharina! Thanks for the update!

  10. SAM M

    Keep playing till you win two times.
    I won 30 stars from last two days:)

    One more thing you dont need to click in the email to play. Just login to the account to play how many ever times you want to play but can win only two prizes in a day.
    Just fill the form to enter twice daily for the prizes that will be announced end of october.

    Happy winning and game play.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Thanks so much for the helpful comment! Glad you’ve been able to snag some stars! Congrats! 🤗❤️

  11. nikiserrr22

    I won 25 stars & 10 stars, thank you hip2save!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Woohoo! You’re most welcome! 💞

  12. Christianne Burgess

    Just got done playing the game and got 5 stars from one game and 50 stars from the other game.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Congratulations! 🎉⭐️

  13. DeeBeeTee

    I also found this game confusing compared to other ones they’ve had. It did say I won twice, 25 points each time, but when I click to claim them, there is no verification. And if you go to use your plays it says order now…so confusing. Playing on my phone, btw.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      So sorry for the issues! You might try switching to “desktop view” on your mobile device, or to a laptop/desktop computer to play the game. I did just test this out on my phone, and when I click “Play Now” under the arcade game (the instant win game), it loaded right away. It seems that when you do win a prize, there’s a multi-step process of claiming/entering your email for verification and then you’ll receive an email to “Claim” your prize. Hoping this is helpful! 🤞❤️

  14. Hipgrandma

    Is anyone else having trouble with the game loading? It spins and spins

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh bummer! Hoping you can get through soon. Maybe wait a moment and try again. 🤞💖

    • Hluna1977

      I’ve had the same problem its lagging pretty bad

    • Nancy

      Yes! I keep trying but it’s so slow! The last 2 days I was able to play for 10-15 minutes and get 2 wins

  15. sbh

    Every once in a while I can play this. Most of the time it takes forever to load. I do the recaptcha and it just tries to load load and load. I’ve never had a problem before. I don’t know if it’s my phone or the game.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey there! It does seem that other readers may be experiencing the same delays on the game. Personally, I played this late last night, and found that it loaded much faster. Their site may be experiencing heavy traffic throughout the day. Hoping this helps! 🤞❤️

  16. queen62

    Good Luck. This is the worst game so far on their app.

  17. Nan

    I clicked to claim the stars that I won in the email and then logged into my account, but I have not seen the stars have been updated after 2 days. I am not sure what I did wrong. Does anyone have the same issue?

    • Natasha-ai

      Try the email links again. Same thing happened to me. I clicked the link from Monday’s email today (Wed.), and then it worked.

      • Nan

        Did you see any messages after you clicked the link (assume that you already logged in)? I clicked on the link 2 times and just clicked it again, but I have not seen any updates yet. How long did it take for the stars to show up in your account after you clicked the link.

        • Natasha-ai

          For me, I was on my phone. After I clicked the link, it opened the app. There was a “success” message after that. Maybe try a different browser if you’re on a computer.

  18. Amber

    Super glitchy game.

    • Natasha-ai

      Yes! I hope they don’t use this method in the future.

  19. jennifer-100

    So, you have to play the game to win anything?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey there! You can enter your email through the link above if you don’t want to play to win! Good luck! 🎉❤️

  20. Christianne Burgess

    After 3 total chats today the third one was able to help me after I couldn’t receive my free bakery item. The previous 2 chat people wanted nothing to do with it. Note: When they say they can’t give you anything that is just an excuse and they can since the third chat person gave me 50 stars which is equal to a free bakery item. So don’t give up.

    • Claudette (Hip Sidekick)

      “Thanks, Christianne! Awesome to hear they were able to give you some stars for your bakery item!💕

    • Sherri

      I am having the same problem claiming my bakery item…how did you chat with them, Facebook, website? I couldn’t find any way to contact them.

    • hip2trade

      When I chatted about not being able to claim my free bakery item the girl added $10 to my account. I think I got very lucky.

      • Sherri

        Thank you so much for the link! I’m so glad that they were able to help you!

  21. Christianne Burgess

    Note: Today is apparently the last day for Starbuck game and it just keeps spinning around in a circle.

    • Christianne Burgess

      Update it is working but when I played the game and it says you won a free bakery item it is like sorry you didn’t. Just odd Starbucks. Fix the errors before you make the link live.

    • Claudette (Hip Sidekick)

      Darn! Maybe try refreshing the page and try once more.🤞

  22. Melissa H

    I’ve barely been able to play this game because it won’t load on my phone half the time. I usually enjoy their events but this one has been so annoying! I did win 10 points one day at least but doesn’t feel worth the time I’ve wasted.

    • Claudette (Hip Sidekick)

      Bummer! So sorry for the troubles. Maybe try switching over to desktop view will help the game load.🤞

  23. Kelly

    I’ve been playing everyday and got nothing.

    • Natasha-ai

      Everyone can play as many times as you’d like until you win twice. Also, you don’t have to play the game. Tap on the link to play, but then look at the fine print once the play window appears. You just enter your Starbucks-associated email. Just keep entering your email until you win. (If I didn’t explain that well, I think previous posts in this thread do. Hope you win something tonight.)

  24. Rn404

    I’ve won a total of 30pts. Thanks

    • Claudette (Hip Sidekick)

      Awesome! You so welcome, Rn404!!!

  25. Holly

    Very glitchy game. Said I won but the page froze and went back to top page. Talked to two different people on chat but they didn’t do anything. I won’t even try anymore it’s just a waste of my time🤷‍♀️

  26. Justina

    Thanks for reposting each day–i need to set the starbucks games in my calendar reminders, but love the reminders from h2s—won about 215pts overall, so good enough, like a free coffee and breakfast item, better than nothing, about the same as usual for the starbucks games for me—yeah, most starbucks games are a little finicky, this was a little harder on the app vs the website on a laptop—i used the enter without a purchase and without playing link, h2s share those out on your posted sweeps, look to the rules or the fine print at the bottom of the entry pages for the links if the company offers them, so yeah a couple of nights I had to enter like 50+ times to win my pts, and play some games too when the games actually loaded for fun, but the app was not loading well, so stuck with the enter w/o playing the game and without a purchase—fingers crossed to win one of those 7000 chances at 1000pts, value about$35, think they draw winners tomorrow, but rules didn’t really say when they would notify the winners, but it could take a mth+ to actually receive the pts it says, hopeful though and hopeful that it’ll be faster than a mth–thanks!

  27. Gramma C

    Ugh. So glitchy the entire week. Won zero stars. Worst game yet.
