This offer has been extended through 8/29!
If you (like me) love a good Starbucks deal, right now you can buy a Starbucks eGift Card and get an additional $5 free if you’re one of the first 200.000 to do so (before 8/29). A few points to note:
- You need to spend at least $10 on your gift card purchase.
- You need to check out with Visa Checkout (it’s free and you don’t actually have to use a Visa card).
- There is a limit of one bonus per person.
And yes, youÃ‚ can send it to yourself and then immediately transfer the $15 to your Starbucks RewardsÃ‚ card.
The bonus won’t be reflected as you checkout, but it will be confirmed in your email receipt. I tried this today and it worked just peachy – see? Now, time to treat myself to my favorite Starbucks beverage…an iced caramel macchiato. Can’t. Wait.
How to Use Visa Checkout
As mentioned above, youÃ‚ must use Visa Checkout to pay in order to receive the $5 bonus. To use Visa Checkout, select the “Visa Checkout” option on the “Checkout Payment Method” screen:
Then click the “Visa Checkout” button and create or sign in to your Visa Checkout account. You can useÃ‚ any major credit card to pay – it doesÃ‚ notÃ‚ have to be a Visa card (I actually used my Discover card). Once you complete the process through Visa Checkout, you’ll see the $5 bonus reflected in your email receipt. If you have any issues, you can contact Starbucks customer service.
