How the Starbucks Summer Game Works:

In the 2021 Starbucks Summer Game, there are five different areas of the game to “explore.” In each area, you can earn unique instant prizes! The big twist? You must successfully complete a challenge before you’re allowed to advance to the next area!

  • Play (3) times to gain access to the Pool Party Area
  • Once you’ve accessed the “Pool Party Area,” play (2) days in a row to enter the Beach Day Area
  • Once you’ve accessed the “Beach Day Area,” play (3) times again to access the Boardwalk Stroll Area
  • At the “Boardwalk Stroll Area,” play (3) times again to access a word scramble. After solving the word scramble, you will then receive further instructions on how to finish the game! Woo! 🥳

And the best part – these coupons are valid on ANY size and do not expire until 11/22/2021! SWEET!

  11. J. Sweet.

  12. Mel

    Just wondering, has anyone ever experienced not being able to login to their Starbucks account even though its the correct password? I haven’t been able to login into the site and app since half a year ago… and CS wasn’t able to help

    • keiferace

      Yes, that happens to me all the time, but works fine when I open an “Incognito” window. Please give that a shot, phones have incognito tap too. If you get in, you can still place orders through starbucks.com instead of the app. Fingers crossed for u!

  13. Tina9222

    25⭐️ yay!

  14. Rey

    If anyone has a 50% off frap to share that will not use, I would be able to use it please, thank you, reyniercg hotmail com

  18. Susan

    I won $100 Starbucks gift card today!!!!!!!!! I couldn’t believe it since I rarely even win 50% off coupons in these games.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Wahoo! Congrats!

  19. Abbie Miller

    I did to but it did not go in my account

    • Abbie Miller

      I never received my coupon in my account for a I ce coffee an y size it been a couple of days

      • Susan

        The coupons do not go into your account. You receive an email that has a scan bar that you use in store. Either print out the email (that’s what I do) or show the email on your phone in the store so the bar can be scanned. HTH:)

  20. Sara

    7/21: free Refresher or iced tea, 50% off Frappuccino or iced espresso

    7/25: 10 stars

    7/27: $100 gift card

    11 sweepstakes entries

    A warning about the any size beverage claim: I won a free “standard menu-size” nondairy beverage from the Earth Month game. I tried to use it at the Disney Springs Marketplace location since the West Side location(corporate store) was closed at the time. I wondered if I was going to have problems because I thought the Marketplace location was still not a corporate location even though they now have mobile ordering. I ordered a trenta Pink Drink. The register wouldn’t take the coupon. The barista wondered if the coupon was actually for a smaller size. He gave me a trenta size anyway and told me to consider the coupon used.

    Well, it’s nice to see that winning IS possible. lol Every time I play, it unrealistically goes into the “Sweepstakes” spot. Even after it lands in the “win!” spot… :/

  22. SeattleK

    I just won a $100 giftcard to Starbucks!!!!

    • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Woohoo!! That is awesome! Congrats, SeattleK!
