Hooray! All of that work around the holidays has paid off and my Bonus Stars email has arrived. I know that there were several of you who were waiting anxiously for your email with the bonus code – including me! A friend commented that he had received his email yesterday so I was heartened, to say the least, that mine would be arriving soon. And sure enough, this was in my inbox this morning.
Who knows what method Starbucks uses in sending out notifications but if you successfully completed the New Years Dash and the notification was in your Starbucks account, I would think that you can safely assume that your Bonus Stars code will be arriving soon.
On another note, there are several people who have reported receiving a promotion where, if you load your card with $25, you will receive a bonus amount from Starbucks. One friend is reporting a $5.00 bonus and another is reporting a $10.00 bonus. Be sure to check your email carefully for either of these offers.
Sadly, I haven’t received this one. My latest bonus offer was simply for an extra star for the purchase of a handcrafted espresso.
All Stars count towards that free drink or bakery item at Starbucks though. Remember: if you are purchasing more than one item, it always makes sense to pay for each item separately to get the best advantage from the offers. Of course, this rings true for any time you visit Starbucks. Separate transactions. Always.
