Starbucks Recognition GIft Card

Starbucks has a gift card deal that keeps on giving! 🎁

Through January 11th, Starbucks will donate $5 to the National Alliance on Mental Illness when you purchase an eGift Card from its “Recognition” category.

These $5 donations will benefit NAMI’s initiative to support the mental wellness of front-line responders as they continue to navigate the ever-present challenges of COVID-19.

This deal is a no-brainer if you enjoy Starbucks coffee! Just purchase an eGift Card for as low as $5, and you’ll be helping to show your support for the healthcare community. That’s like giving a gift within a gift!

This latest campaign is just part of an ongoing effort since March 2020 on Starbuck’s behalf to support front-line responders. The 4.2+ million cups of coffee they have gifted to healthcare workers is just the tip of the iceberg!

The Starbucks Foundation has donated more than $1 million in contributions including the delivery of personal protective equipment, essential medical items, care packages, and support for emergency assistance including other mental health resources for first responders and health care workers. Go Starbucks! 👏

    Way to go Starbucks! My husband appreciates all the free coffee he’s gotten on shift 🙂

  2. Celenorma

    I just learned about the free coffees. Been buying mine all along. 🤭

  3. Evie

    So if I pay $5.00 and they choose to donate the $5.00 to their cause, who should get the credit?

    • Aleshia

      Well you buy a 5$ gift card for yourself or for someone else and then they donate another 5$. Matching your 5$ for first responders. Many people that donate or give do so anonymously because they do it out of kindness…not for credit.

        Well said Aleshia😊

    Beautiful. I applaud Starbuck’s for this kind and and thoughtful initiative.

  5. Evie

    Do the unemployed and evicted deserve free coffee? Just sayin’

  6. KKStanley
