Over time we’ve seen Starbucks offer all kinds of promotions in conjunction with mobile payment services. This has been a fantastic opportunity to score discounts on Starbucks purchases. The latest such promotion has just been introduced.
At the moment you can earn 300 bonus Starbucks Stars if you make a single Starbucks purchase using Chase Pay by March 19, 2018. Starbucks requires 125 Stars for a free drink or food item, so this is enough for two free items, and you’ll have an extra 50 Stars towards a third reward.
This is a no brainer to take advantage of, and the good news is that it’s super easy as well. If you don’t yet have the Chase Pay app, you can download it in the app store. You’ll be directed to log-in with your Chase credentials.
You should see the offer on the homepage, near the center. Click on “Offer details” there.
That will bring you to the page outlining the promotion, where you have to click “Activate this offer.”
When you click “Activate this offer” you’ll be brought to the Starbucks website, where you have to log in with your Starbucks Rewards log-in details. This is so that they know in which account to deposit your Stars.
And that’s it. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be brought back to the Chase Pay app.
Then when you actually go to Starbucks, you’ll just want to open the Chase Pay app and pay using the QR code there. You can select which of your linked Chase cards you want to use for the purchase. You’ll see the “Pay” button at the bottom of the app, which is shown in the second screenshot of the post.
It will take up to five days for bonus Stars to post to your Starbucks Rewards account.
Ordinarily you earn two Stars per dollar spent at Starbucks, so earning 300 Stars is what you’d usually earn for $150 worth of spend. You get all that for just a single purchase, even if it’s a $2 cup of coffee. Last fall there was an offer for 300 bonus Stars when you reload your Starbucks balance using Chase Pay, which I took advantage of. I’ll gladly take another 300 free points!
Do you plan on taking advantage of this Starbucks & Chase Pay promotion?
