Great idea!!

Is this open to all members with registered cards?  I'm gold, and haven't seen anything else about this.

I usually get an email or message on the Starbucks app.

I got the email.  I went this morning to purchase a breakfast sandwich.  Paid with registered and loaded card.  I received a star for the purchase, but no bonus star.....yet.  Hmmmm.

I hope this started this morning. I had 2 stars until I achieved Gold when I purchased an apple fritter and tall Cafe Americano. That would put me at 30!!

Stars don't usually appear in your account until the next day.

The star for the purchase appeared right away, but the bonus star for the food item did not appear. If it isn't there by tomorrow, I'll call customer service. I'm collecting those 25 days of Christmas bonus stars! I don't want to let any slip by unaccounted for.

Usually a star (for purchase) does not appear until the next day; however, today, I have already received a star for food purchase this morning.  No bonus star for this promo yet.

6pm at night and I'm just finding this.  I was receiving emails and notices about these specials but they just stopped.  When I emailed customer service I got the biggest run around ever so I called and the person I spoke with had no clue about the rewards dash board or the badges or anything.

Purchased a venti cafe mocha and a classic breakfast sandwich this morning with my gold card and didn't get bonus star.

Anyone know if a drink purchase is required, or can I just purchase a breakfast sandwich to earn two stars?

I am actually playing it suuupppeerrrr smart with my stars these 3 days. A while back, I read a post that suggested with every item you buy, you should purchase it seperately so that you will accumulate more stars that way (makes sense...). So I've tested this theory out and my latest star accumulation in one day is 6 (from yesterday, which will turn out to be 9 after the bonus stars kick in). Here's how:

Zulily has a Starbucks Holiday card promo that is $25 for $25 card- best part is, if you use up the whole $25 by 12/31/13, you will receive an additional $10 ecard (that I linked to my account immediately) in January. After I linked the card, I went to a local store after class and purchased 2 frappucino's, a reuseable cup, a cake pop, cranberry bliss bar and pumpkin bread- all on seperate orders, totalling 6. I got the 6 stars by the end of the night and used up about $18 on my promo card. A bonus was that since I used the reuseable cup, I got another $.10 off the drinks and now that the promo is going on, I'm at a high 9 stars in less than 10 minutes.

Zulily has their promo only until tomorrow at midnight, so in case you don't have an account with them, copy and paste the link below and sign up! If you're an avid Starbuck's drinker, it is more than worth it!! :)

Stars earned may take up to 24 hours to appear on your account.

For me, it is past 24 hours. No bonus star for my food purchase yesterday morning. Do the bonus stars show up in your account or do you get an email that provides a star code that you enter into your account?

I purchased one breakfast sandwich yesterday, and two today, on separate transactions, and I have not received any stars.  I used my registered gold card a total of three times yesterday, and three times today, and have not received any of my stars. What is going on with this?

Coffee+bagel yesterday = 1 star

Coffee+bagel today = 2 stars

For 2 days in a row I've earned 9 stars :D

Zulily has a Starbucks Holiday card promo that is $25 for $25 card- the catch is, if you use up the whole $25 by 12/31/13, you will receive an additional $10 ecard in January.

After I bought the promo, I linked the card and went to a local cafe after class and work and purchased 2 drinks, a reuseable cup, and 3 food items- all on seperate orders, totaling 6 stars. I got the stars by the end of the night (and used up about $18 on my promo card). A bonus was that since I used the reuseable cups, I got another $.10 off the drinks and now that the promo is going on, I got an added 3 stars by night and am at 9 stars in less than 10 minutes.

Then yesterday I decided to just get some food items, so I got 3 orders of 2 cake pops, so I saved $1.50 on the pops and made another 6 stars from the food items plus 3 from the orders.

Zulily has their promo only until 12/19 at 6am, so in case you don't have an account with them, copy and paste the link below and sign up! If you're an avid Starbuck's drinker, it is more than worth it!! :)

Still haven't gotten my bonus star from food purchase on Monday. Got my bonus stars for today tho. Wondering when that bonus star will show up, if ever?

I bought a Caramel Brulee coffee and a muffin on 12/16, paid with my Starbucks card and only received 1 star :( Still no bonus star on 12/19!

Coffee + 2 Cake Pops = 1 Star?

I cannot believe I missed this!  Any chance they may do this maybe even 1 more day prior to Christmas Deadline for the 30 Bonus Points? AND...if they do...does anyone know the best place to FIND OUT about it? I never received an email but I also know Starbucks was having difficulty with their "system" during a couple of those bonus days...which may be why some were not notified...like me???

Why am I not getting emails or messages or anything about these deals?  I often buy food at SB.

I too got the bonus stars but I had no clue what they were for.  I did not receive any email about them, and nothing on my rewards page. it was just a fluke that I was doing my normal habit of a brewed coffee and a pastry, and the stars showed up.  Would've been good to have been notified.  (the email notifications are really slow, always, for me, a day behind...)

How long before the 25 Stars of Christmas email goes out? It's been over a week & I'd like my bonus 30.

Did a bit of traveling over the holidays (up/down Interstate 95 and 75), and stopped at many Starbucks along the way.  Found that some of the personnel (Lake City) could not even tell me if the tazo tea (in box) was loose tea or tea bags.  I had to explain the difference as he thought the individual tea bags made it "loose tea".  Was disappointed to see that as I know the personnel/staff get familiarization classes (or at least they did at one point).

i got a lot of bonus stars when they gave out free ones for food items. Especially when you order coffee and pay then order a food item = 3 stars in one day.

How long before the 25 Stars of Christmas gets credited?! Almost a month now and nothing?!  Not good.
