ThirdReich's guide to a cheap Star Dash:

Free ways:
o Gift Cards
- Buy on registered card with balance, reload to self later (Be smart, don't try to separate transactions; just buy 1 at a time. Baristas get that hint real fast, and we may lose that privilege)
o Star Codes (from previous bought grounds, or promotions)
- Save your Star Codes for the Dashes!
o Stars earned from Surveys (buy drink at Starbucks on registered card, you get emailed a survey, fill it out for a star)

Cheap Ways (prices may vary, please correct if wrong!):
o Food
- Petite Vanilla Bean Scones - $0.99
o Drinks
- Strawberry Water (if asked, it's just water & strawberry juice) - $0.69
- Tall Brewed Coffee $1.79

another cheap way is espresso shots by theirselves its like .75 cents each

I recommend putting them over ice and adding free cream and splenda at bar

YMMV Just got an email on 3/10 from Starbucks with a deal that might sweeten your Star Dash:

Quote :
Reload your card and get a sweet reward!

Load $25 to your registered Starbucks card by March 16, and you'll receive 5 bonus stars.... Bonus stars will be loaded yo your account by March 20"


YMMV Another way to max your star dash:

I got an email on 3/12 about earning 5 bonus stars by redeeming 2 star codes from packaged coffee. If you have those saved star codes from packaged coffee, this is your ticket! In addition, the 5 bonus stars can be redeemed up to three times (2x3 + 5x3 = 21 maximum stars earned). Cheap trick to this, Ross carries Starbucks VIA packets generally (I like the refreshers), and they're around $3. If you're into this, it's a cheap way of getting a ton of stars and enjoying some beverages below cost.

I don't have this offer, but since we're here I have a question.

How long before your birthday are you supposed to get your free drink?
It seems like in previous years it has shown up at the end of February or beginning of March. Now my birthday is in four days and it hasn't showed up yet. Anyone have a similar experience?

I'm not even going to bother with this dash as it requires me 13 and 16 for 10 or 20. Given the two week window, I'd have to go at least once a day just for 10 stars.

BTW, I was offered 25% off sandwiches from March 10 to 16.

I got 3 and 5 too! And I just finished the bonus round extra 4 stars per food item. Been getting a cheap cookie in separate transactions and racking up the stars this past weekend!

call them they will add it or give you something usually at the beginning of the month they come around.
