You’ll need to earn at least 1 Star a year to be eligible for Green member benefits.

Not necessarily—baristas will not automatically know who’s a member of Starbucks Rewards™ and who isn’t. To collect Stars as a member of Starbucks Rewards™, you’ll need to use your registered Starbucks® card every time you visit Starbucks. The barista can’t do this for you.

No. Sorry, memberships and rewards are non-transferable and can’t be shared with family members, friends or others.

Yes, you can register more than one Starbucks® card to your Starbucks® account and earn Stars for every purchase you make using both of the registered Starbucks® cards.

No, if you received Starbucks® store credit cards or Teavana® store credit cards, they’re not the same as Starbucks® cards and Teavana® cards. Starbucks® store credit cards and Teavana® store credit cards are issued after a return was made, and money is refunded onto these cards. You’ll get to keep the Stars you originally earned with these purchases on your Starbucks® card. However, you won’t be able to earn any more Stars by using these Starbucks® store credit cards or Teavana® store credit cards, and these cards can’t be registered or reloaded for additional value.

You’ll earn 2 Stars for every $1 you spend on coffee, food, drinks, merchandise and more when you pay with your Starbucks® app or a registered card at participating Starbucks®, Teavana® and Evolution Fresh stores.

The Stars you collect as a Green member will expire after 12 months from the day you join the program if you do not reach Gold Status, and your Star balance will be reset to zero.

As a Gold member, the Stars you collect towards Star Rewards will expire after 6 months. Starbucks will always apply the oldest Stars towards your Star Reward (redeemed with 125 Stars).

For example, if you earn 10 Stars on June 16 and 15 Stars on June 24, your total Star balance for the month—25 Stars—will expire on January 1.

Yes, your change counts towards partial Stars. We’ll keep track of all your partial Stars and apply them to your total Stars.

For example, if you spend $6.20 (not including tax, tips, alcohol or other exceptions), you’ll earn 12.40 Stars.

The .40 is not always visible (we like to keep things simple), but you can always view your Stars and purchase history at starbucks.com/rewards - opens in a new window or in the mobile app.

Yes, when you shop online with a registered Starbucks® card or Teavana® card, you’ll earn 2 Stars per $1 spent, just as you do in store.

Yes, members receive Bonus Star offers in the Starbucks® app.

No, members do not earn Stars for loading or reloading their registered Starbucks® card.

Periodically, you may have the opportunity to earn Bonus Stars, generally through member-exclusive offers. Starbucks Rewards™ offers are often specific to our members' preferences so you may see offers with details that are tailored just for you.

For many offers, the Bonus Stars will appear in your account within 24 hours. However, there are some offers in which the Stars are not awarded until a later date. In addition, you may receive a Star Code by email that you have to redeem. Remember to check your email and spam filters to make sure you’re receiving all of your emails from Starbucks. To redeem a Star Code, see here - opens in a new window for more information.

While you can earn Stars - opens in a new window at nearly all Starbucks® locations, there are certain benefits that we can only offer at participating stores. This means most of our Bonus Star - opens in a new window promotions can only be awarded for purchases made at participating locations. Specifically, most Starbucks® stores can provide Bonus Stars while Starbucks® store locations or kiosks within grocery, book stores or airports may be unable to extend this benefit.

You can earn Stars at over 7,000 participating Starbucks® stores, as well as at our partner stores—Evolution Fresh and Teavana®, or online at store.starbucks.com - opens in a new window. This includes most Starbucks® locations or kiosks within grocery stores or airports.

You can also earn Stars when you purchase specially marked Starbucks® coffee in grocery aisles. Simply enter the Star Code online at starbucks.com/card/rewards - opens in a new window to collect your Stars.

To learn more, visit starbucks.com/promo/rewards - opens in a new window.

You can’t earn Stars on card-to-card transactions with your Starbucks® card (such as activations, reloads, transfers or any other card-to-card transactions). In most stores, alcohol, taxes, tips, donations and fees are also excluded and ineligible for Star accrual.

Gold members will earn 2 Stars for every $1 spent at participating Starbucks® stores. Once they collect 125 Stars, they can redeem them for a Star Reward (any eligible food or drink at participating Starbucks®, Teavana® and Evolution Fresh stores). See items eligible for Star Rewards - opens in a new window.

No Star Reward coupon will be issued. Just let your barista know and present your Starbucks® app or registered card when you’re ready to redeem it.

Yes. Birthday Rewards expire the day after your birthday. If you’re a Gold member, the Stars you collect will expire 6 months after the month in which they were collected—so be sure to use them when you have enough for a Star Reward (125 Stars).

After you collect 125 Stars, you can choose to redeem them for a free food or drink item (excluding alcoholic beverages and multi-serve items) at any time before they expire—either choose to redeem your Star Reward in the Starbucks® app when using Mobile Order & Pay, or ask your barista when you’re paying at a participating Starbucks® store.

Once your reward is redeemed, 125 Stars will be removed from your Star balance. You’ll continue to earn a Star Reward for every 125 Stars you accumulate. For example, if you have 250 Stars, you’re eligible to redeem two Star Rewards.

Currently, Star Rewards can be redeemed at all Starbucks® company-operated locations in the U.S. and Canada. Some licensed store locations, such as kiosks in grocery stores and other retailers, are not able to redeem Star Rewards at this time. We’re working with our licensed stores to allow redemption.

If you use your Starbucks® app or registered card to purchase a beverage and then present that same payment method for a refill, you can get a free refill on any hot or iced brewed coffee or tea during the same store visit at participating Starbucks® stores.

Once you leave the store, your visit has ended and any subsequent coffee or tea refill thereafter would be considered a new purchase.

Yes. During the same store visit you’ll have to present your Starbucks® app or registered card to the barista for your free refill. Additionally, we’re excited to include free refills at Teavana® stores (some restrictions apply).

As a Gold member, you’re eligible for a Star Reward every 125 Stars you collect, but you don’t have to redeem it right away and can continue to accumulate beyond 125 Stars.

For example, you can have 250 Stars in your account and redeem two Star Rewards at the same time.

Note that your Stars do expire, however, so be sure to redeem your Stars for Star Rewards before that happens. See Star expiration info - opens in a new window.

Watch out for an email notification, check your Rewards status online at starbucks.com/account - opens in a new window, or your Starbucks® app to track your Stars.

Green members don’t collect Stars towards Star Rewards. Green members collect Stars towards Gold Status. When a Green member collects 300 Stars, they achieve Gold Status and begin to collect Stars towards Star Rewards.

Gold members can redeem a Star Reward after they collect 125 Stars. As a Gold member, you’ll choose when to redeem 125 Stars for a Star Reward.

No, you can add any registered Starbucks® card to your account, or to the Starbucks® app to earn Stars for your purchases and receive Gold-member benefits.

No. Sorry, memberships and Star Rewards are non-transferable and can’t be shared with family members, friends or others.
