I don’t remember the last time I’ve paid full price for Starbucks thanks to all the promotions they offer in conjunction with mobile payment services. Between November 15 and 21, 2017, you can earn 300 bonus Stars if you load $20 or more onto the Starbucks app with Chase Pay. This offer is only good in the US, and the Stars should post within 24 hours.
That’s enough to elevate your status from Green to Gold, and also enough for two free drinks or food items. Each drink or food item costs 125 Stars, so you’d have enough for two, and would have 50 Stars towards your third reward.
It used to be that Chase Pay didn’t work for these kinds of things if you had both personal and business cards linked to the same online log-in, though it looks like they’ve finally fixed this. So I was able to take advantage of this offer even though I have both personal and business cards associated with the same log-in.
The entire process of taking advantage of this offer took less than a minute, and I probably spent half of that time recalling what my Starbucks password is (is it just me, or do to they have annoying requirements and not let you reuse the same password?).
To take advantage of this offer just log into the Starbucks app, click “Reload,” and then click “Add Payment Method,” assuming you don’t already have your Chase Pay account linked.
Once you log-in with your Chase credentials (which auto-populated for me), you’ll have the option of selecting which Chase card you want to link.
Then after confirming your Starbucks password you should see the option to reload with Chase Pay. I selected $20 as the amount, and that posted immediately. I assume my 300 Stars will post within 24 hours, as promised.
This is a super easy promotion for anyone who visits Starbucks with any frequency.
