Saturdays are for coffee: Starbucks gift card enhancers

by Rocket Finance

If you are the fortunate owner of a Starbucks gift card, the company recently announced a number of perks that come with their cards:

  1. A free coffee if you register your card here before July 14th.
  2. Free refills on hot or iced brewed coffee.
  3. Free flavor upgrades like hazelnut, caramel, soy, cream, etc.
  4. Free tall coffee with the purchase of one pound of Starbucks whole beans.
  5. Up to two hours of free wireless internet.

Mrs. Rocket and I just ordered two $5 Starbucks gift cards via our Miles by Discover rewards account. We ordered our cards before we knew about the Starbucks promotion and it was a good thing that we received two separate $5 cards since the free stuff is tied to any gift card – regardless of it’s value.

I am also looking forward to getting a free $25 Starbucks gift card very soon, but I’ll tell you about that another time.

    Starbucks gift card rules! I work for a company that manages and tracks gift cards, and I’ve been following the starbucks gift card conversation on I think they are doing a great job marketing it. Also, I they are also having free iced coffee on Wednesday, you can find these cards in newspapers if they are around, or asked the barista if they have any for you.
