    Starbucks just loves to make their contests difficult, no thanks.

    • trendtonia

      I agree, after entering personal info like address for free play, all that trouble for nada. won a “row booster”. not to mention they have gone up on there prices already, so like what’s the problem starbucks? also anyone notice the survey after requesting free play, it asks “would you want to donate your prize” HAHHA LOL what a joke!!!

    • berrylandnow

      Agree. Their prizes are ridiculous. Thanks for the virtual postcard. What a waste of time. and that 5 stars lol

    • Gramma C

      Right?? So convoluted too. This is the most boring of all of them. I just quit playing. Also why after like 2 years are they asking exact same questions when you’re filling out your daily game play?? So pointless.

  2. Pinckney4

    Anyone else having issues with the app today?

    • misti

      I have trouble the last 3 days. Won’t let me log on.

    • Guest 24

      Yes ma’am… ALL day

  3. Justina

    won 60stars so far, had a little fun with the game, but that’s just a $2 win so far from daily play

    • MaiK

      I usually win more too. However, most of the items you can get with 50 stars would cost more than $2. (This is me trying to be positive)

      • Justina

        ohh, I save my stars for 150star rewards, so I get like $6 sandwiches, so 50stars is worth like $2 to me–but I did win a $10 gift card on the last starbucks sweeps and points, I’m positive, that’s how i was saying had a little fun with the game, but used most of the boosters, so not really into the game until i stack up boosters again, lol

        • Emily

          This is a total hack, but I use brewed coffee as a base and add all the syrups, espresso, creamer and foam to that. It’s only 50 stars instead of 150, and tastes like the 150 star coffees.

          • Cathy

            you don’t pay for the add ons??

          • Ashley

            I do this with the Cafe Misto. I add an extra shot of espresso, use oatmilk, add syrup.

  4. sheriberry

    I won a total of 200 stars so far. Also can’t log in to request my free plays today. No issues prior to today.

  5. MaryKay

    Is it possible to find out what the orange 🍊 drink is that Cam is holding? Thanks a bunch

  6. penny

    This is the only time I’ve actually won something. I’ve been playing every day that I remember and won a bunch of stars probably around 200? and a $10 gift card

    • Hipgrandma

      I actually won in this game too. 100 stars and a $25 gift card! I’ve only won a few stars in previous games

  7. MombieZombie

    I usually never win on their games. However so far on this one l won 365 stars so far. No issues logging in or requesting free plays. I am happy 😊

  8. molly

    I hope I win something because I really can’t justify going there now that they’re tacking 50 cents onto every drink as a “cup fee.” I’m all for cutting waste, but it seems they just padded their profit with this approach. I thought they were going to give us an actual discount for bringing our own reusable cups?

    • berrylandnow

      Wow they are doing that?

  9. Blessed

    I won 5 stars today for a grand total of 45 from playing every day.

  10. hrosana

    I am not complaining here had won 85 stars and right now I won 310 so total of 395 my son also won a $5 gc and over 100 stars.

  11. Jessica

    Won 150 Stars today! Thanks for the reminder to play!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Congrats! You are welcome, Jessica! You can get a few regular coffees with that!

  12. hrosana

    Have won a total of 550 stars, not complaining here.

  13. Sherri

    My luck has not been great with this game, but congrats to everyone that has won!

  14. queen62

    I’m still trying to figure out the winning of 5 stars 🤩🤩. You need 50 for a coffee.

  15. Priscilla

    I’m on the website not the app never played before any of their sweepstakes and it says I’m ineligible to play

  16. Lauren

    I don’t know what changed in the past week, but after getting no stars at all early in this game despite playing every day, suddenly I’ve gotten 5-10 stars every day. I’ll take it!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Woohoo! 🥰🎉

    • Elvira

      Thanks for mentioning this. I’ve had given up on this game but went on again after seeing your comment and won 10 stars.

      • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

        YAY! 🥰🎉

  17. Skuiper

    I won a $100 gift card a few days ago…I almost 💩myself. 😂

  18. kiera

    Only thing I’ve won is 25 stars. And that wasn’t even from actually shopping, that was from a “free play”. Their games are really not that fun.

  19. Amber

    I’ve won 135 stars (all in 5-10 star increments) and a $10 gift card from free plays only. I usually play at really odd times of the day since I’m always on the road.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      YAY! 🎉 Those daily free plays are so nice!

  20. Kelly

    I won boosters. I rather not play.

  21. Belle78

    I had 6 free games today. I won 10 stars and 5 boosters, which I don’t use. That game is just plain dumb.

  22. Patricia Goff

    No spins for me. I spun 2 weeks ago so have to wait for another spin I guess.

    • BlueWaterGirl

      You have to enter each day under the free play to get any spins (if you aren’t going to Starbucks). Scroll most of the way down and enter without making a purchase. Do this twice a day, then go to your email, and the spins are there.

  23. Vironika

    I put it in my Google calendar with the link to get my two free spins everyday. I mean, it only takes a minute to request my daily spins. Then another minute to spin. Last summer I won 3 free months. This winter I won free drinks and about a hundred stars. This time around I’ve won 230 stars so far. Easy peasy! 🤷🏻‍♀️
