I thought the title read - Free drink after 8 starts (4/11-4/24)
I was thinking about late night Starbucks and not being able to fall asleep.

Sorry for the late reply.
I'm pretty sure you register with your Starbucks rewards program email address (the one linked to your registered card).

What is 'registering your Starbucks card?'

Edit:
nevermind, my card is registered. Maybe I'll get 8 coffees over that time period while studying for finals, lol

So call me paranoid,

and I do know that Cheetahmail does some work for Starbucks,

But how do we know that this is actually a Starbucks promotion, not just someone harvesting emails?

Kick start your star earning by joining our 8 Star Dash. After you register, collect 8 Stars from now through April 24 and we'll load a free drink right onto your registered Starbucks Card. It's as easy as that!

To celebrate your general awesomeness, we'll keep you up to date on your status and send you a few cheers along the way.

Does this mean we can double dip and let it count towards free drink after 12 stars. Ie if I have 4 stars now and get 8 more, will I get the 8 star promo and 12 star promo, or get screwed out of one?

Sucks that you only get one star if you buy three drinks at once.

Yeah, it is a stupid condition. Though the baristas that I have interacted with have been understanding when I ask to break up multi-drink orders in order to get stars for each item.

I think the way it works is you accumulate stars during the 4/11-4/24 period...if you get 8 stars you get a free drink after 4/24. If you don't make it to 8, they just count towards your regular 12 stars. The stars you currently have on your account don't go away but they don't count toward your 8.

I hope that makes sense...

Base on my experience with similar prior promo, yes. If you accumulate 8 stars by 4/24/13, you will get a free credit for drink/food. It basically lower the regular 12 stars requirement to 8 during this promo period.

I was thinking the same thing, so I contacted Starbucks customer service via the web form.
