Deal DetailsLast Edited by febzz August 23, 2016 at 03:39 PM
Offer valid 08/09/16 - 11/09/2016.
Get yourself a $20 Lyft Gift Card at a participating Starbucks Store and get a $5 Starbucks Gift Card as bonus. So you pay $20 and get $25. That's a 25% bonus.
And you can always pay for this with Chase Freedom Card and get 5% Cash Back until the end of September.
- You can buy as many Lyft Gift Cards as you wish and load them all to one or more Lyft accounts. They stack.
- Lyft Gift Cards never expire.
- Do gift card amounts roll over? Yes! If the full $20 isn't used on one ride, the remainder is applied to your next ride.
- Can I use a gift card to tip? Just like all Lyft credits, tips are not covered and will always be charged to the credit card associated with your account.

UPDATE: The stars did not show up today (after 24 hours) and I called the Customer Service and was told that Gift Card Purchases do not earn Stars. However, as a one-time exception, they added the Stars for me. The Barista at the Starbucks Store where I purchased the Lyft Gift Card from clearly didn't know what she was talking about then.
And to get the Stars, this might be a lot of trouble to go through for some. So I think it's still easier to just pay for the Lyft Gift Card with Chase Freedom and earn 5% Cash Back.
Simply pay for the whole $20 Lyft Gift Card purchase with your Starbucks Credit/Fund and earn 40 stars. And for Starbucks Gold Members, if you buy this on a double-stars day, you'll get 80 stars!
The value of these stars vary, depending on what you redeem them for. Each redemption costs you 125 stars.
- For example, a Venti Frappuccino (one of the most expensive drinks) here in Chicago, the after-tax price is $5.52.
- For this, the $/star you get is $5.52 / 125 stars = $0.04416/star.
- If you pay the whole $20 Lyft Gift Card with your Starbucks Credit/Fund, you essentially would earn = 40 stars x $0.04416/star = $1.7664 or $3.5328 on a double-stars day.
- $20 Lyft Gift Card + $5 Starbucks Gift Card + $1.7664 - pay $20 = $6.7664 bonus or 33.83% bonus.
- or on a Double-Stars Day: $20 Lyft Gift Card + $5 Starbucks Gift Card + $3.5328 - pay $20 = $8.5328 bonus or 42.67% bonus.
