We’ll give you $5 to register your card and join My Starbucks Rewards. Ends March 14 (new members only).
So far, the promotion has not been publicly communicated by Starbucks corporate, but some stores tipped the offer last weekend during the now-expired promotion to receive a free $5 gift card with in-store purchase of whole bean coffee 1-lb. bag. (See images of informal in-store signage here and here.)
The details of the $5 bonus offer are still sketchy at the moment, but I verified the information at a couple local stores. One barista advised me of the upcoming promo when I bought a bag of coffee over the weekend. When I asked a barista at another store, he was unfamiliar with the upcoming offer, but after consulting a book behind the counter, he confirmed the promotion would be offered from Feb 28 through Mar 14.
I also contacted customer service via the Starbucks website to inquire about the promotion, and received the following reply via e-mail:
Quote :Thank you for contacting Starbucks, I hope you are having a good day! Yes, we are having a promotion coming up where you can get a $5.00 credit if you are a brand new starbucks customer registering your card for the first time. The $5.00 credit should be added to the card up to 72 hours after your card has been registered.
