Here is a new promotion from Starbucks if you are not a Rewards member.
Really quickly the rewards program doesn’t cost anything to join and it is worthwhile because every time you purchase a drink, they track it and once you buy 12 drinks, you get one free.
They also send you a coupon for a free drink on your birthday. These can be any size or any drink you want. (I get a venti two pump Vanilla Latte most of the time.)
You also get the occasional coupon from Starbucks- so it is pretty simple and easy and you can save a little bit here and there.
The catch is that to become a My Starbucks Rewards member, you need to purchase a gift card and register it online or via the free mobile app. That is how they track your purchases so you can continue to reload the card over and over and make sure you use it to pay each time you visit a Starbucks.
I believe you can get a gift card for any amount, so hit a store and get a $5 gift card and then make sure to go home and register it.
You need to register for the program by 9/22 to qualify for the free drink.
**One little tip. If you download the free app, it will search all the time for the closest Starbucks so it does tend to put a strain on the iPhone battery. You can always close out the app when you aren’t using it. I do that and it just takes a second. If you forget no big deal but my battery is always an issue so I try to remember.
And by the way, after you score your free drink, here are several Starbucks Copycat Recipes to try!
