Earn Bonus Stars for Purchasing Starbucks Coffee Iced VIA® this Summer

Many of you have asked us for new ways to earn Stars with your My Starbucks Rewards account. Well, we’ve heard you, and today I’m excited to introduce a new limited time offer launching this summer.  June 4 – July 9, get a bonus Star for every pack of Starbucks VIA® Iced Coffee you purchase at participating company operated stores in the U.S.

The offer is valid on Starbucks VIA® Iced Coffee and Starbucks VIA® Caramel Flavored Iced Coffee

Live in Canada?  Canadians will earn bonus Stars on Starbucks VIA® instant coffee purchases during the same period at participating stores.  This includes Starbucks VIA®, Starbucks VIA® Iced Coffee and Starbucks VIA® flavored instant coffee.  Lucky you!

Iced coffee not your thing?  Don’t worry. We’re planning to add this offer for a variety of Starbucks products in the coming months, so keep your eyes open for in-store signage and check your inbox for emails with our latest offers.

This is a great offer.  But I think that the people that wanted to get "bonus" stars were talking about a way to earn those stars while buying the drinks that they normally purchase, not by purchasing a specific item that SBUX has identified.

Still, a great offer, if you like the Iced Via.

How about something for the tea lovers?  I find that most promotions are geared to coffee beverages, but my Starbuck's addiction is Tazo Chai!

Hello, I'm a NEW Starbucks Gold Card customer as of May 04, 2012. I purchased the NEW Starbucks VIA Italian Roast 3 single-serve packets at one Starbucks store in Canada for a price of $2.95. Then two days later i went into a different Starbucks and they charged me $3.45... can you PLEASE provide me with the correct price of the Starbucks VIA Italian Roast 3 single-serve packets.... looking forward to hearing from you...thanks

@ScubaKMarshall - The correct price in Canada is $3.45.  It looks like at the first location there may have been an error at the register.

Couple days ago I purchased drinks with the via iced coffee pack and the barista told me that I'm qualified for the bonus stars, however, it still didn't show up in my rewards. How long does it take for the bonus stars to appear? Thanks.

Today, June 23, I received a SBUX newsletter bragging about all the great things they're doing because of customer suggestions.  This was the first link I followed. Did I mention that today is June 23rd? Well, here's an offer that has been around for 19 days, AND THIS IS THE FIRST I'M HEARING ABOUT IT.  Could someone have mentioned it at the register when I gave them my card?  As it is, I may not be able to get back to SBUX until after July 9th.  Does someone there think iced coffee is only popular at the beginning of summer?  Why can't this offer exist all the way through summer?

And I agree with RavnWyng.  Let me get extra stars on something I like to purchase, not just on items that SBUX is trying to push.

Hi I would love to buy that, except my most local Sbux SUDDENLY stopped brewing BOLD in the afternoon.  After bucking your system since the beginning of this silly corp order. Suddenly they are being held hostage by corp nazi's apparently. They offer a pour over which is like water and I walk out.  What is the deal with you corp people.  Its about the coffee.  Now bring in a Clover and I will pay by the cup for a great cup of coffee.  BUT NOT A POUR OVER.

Nice offer, bought some last night.  However you still miss the point about earning stars.  Put a system in place based on amount  spent, not per purchase.  If I spend $20 on a purchase I get one star. If I spend $.1.50 I get one star.  What's wrong with that picture?   Wake up mgt.  Figure it out.  Until you do we will keep having everything billed separately.   Pain in the _ _ _ _ for us and SB staff.

You may have listened, but you haven't listened well. What we really want is a star for each drink purchased so we don't need to hold up the line ringing each drink separately.

i'm sensitive to caffeine, so i usually order decaf.  so wish the iced coffee via came decaf as well as more brew choices.  even caf drinkers would drink decaf at night or after dinner.  thanks for listening!  love the customer feedback idea.

I purchase the Via Iced Caramel Coffee pack and still have not received my extra star...although I did receive the star for the Iced White Mocha I purchased the same time/day. When do we receive our "bonus" star??? Thanx

I purchased 2 packs of Via rang up 2 separate times, both on the 8th of July, and never got an extra star for either transaction, wrote the starbucks' customer service, was told I would see the 2 stars added and never received them.  I agree with "Diabetic Shock", they should simply change the rewards back to one star per drink, so we don't have to hold up the line, with all of our drinks rang up separately, it's a hassle, not to mention I've actually been told "NO", by one particular Starbucks, that I've never returned to!

Thx
