Yes! We heard you – My Starbucks Rewards members have told us loud and clear that they want free drink rewards loaded onto their registered Starbucks Cards. In fact, it’s one of our most popular all-time ideas with nearly 70,000 points.
I’m thrilled to share that the waiting game is over. Starting this week My Starbucks Rewards begins a pilot of digital rewards in Pittsburgh. Instead of a postcard for earned drinks or birthday beverages, our Pittsburgh-area members will now receive an email to announce that a free drink is loaded onto their Starbucks Card as soon as they earn one.
After that, it's a simple process:
1. Visit any store in the Pittsburgh area
2. Tell the barista you have a free drink
3. Present your registered Starbucks Card (or scan your registered Card on the Starbucks mobile app).
And voila – free drink goodness!
No more waiting by the mailbox, no more forgetting to tuck that postcard in your purse or stuff it in your pocket. The reward will be loaded instantly onto your Starbucks Card. Read more about it here.
If you don’t live in Pittsburgh stay tuned. We look forward to extending digital My Starbucks Rewards nationwide.
We love your feedback and look forward to hearing from you!
