Update: Deal is now live, promoted on the Starbucks website [starbucks.com]:
Got a Starbucks gift card? Get $5 free when you join our loyalty program by 3/14.

We'll give you $5 to register your card and join My Starbucks Rewards. Ends March 14 (new members only). [starbucks.com]
Starbucks will be offering a $5 credit when you register a card for the first time on a new Starbucks Rewards account [starbucks.com]. The promotion is set to run from February 28 through March 14, 2013.

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.
Thanks again for writing us. If you ever have any questions or concerns in the future, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Additional details will be posted when they become available.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Sounds good. Which account would get the star? Both?

Nvm. All these only last til the 14th.

Just came back from LAX, and they charged me over $11 for a venti caramel ribbon frap, and a grande refresher. They didn't have the scanner.
It's fine, cash out more, I always keep a few extra plastic cards in handy.. damn LAX is always packed,it must of been like a 30min wait?

Can anyone confirm that you can use a birthday reward on ANYTHING? I tried to use mine on an Evolution Fresh juice, but the barista said those were excluded. Wondering if that's the case for anyone else or if the barista was lying/didn't know better.

The Evolution Fresh Juice is excluded. The barista is correct. Too bad, because they're so good.

You can try and see if the barista doing the return doesnt know how to count days. When they are doing returns, it's not like they pull back the original transaction in their computer.
They just verify visually if the receipt is ok. If its ok, then they scan the verismo to process the refund and that's it.

Worst case scenario, try to get an extra gift receipt for verismo

My card that was issued the credit for the Verismo I returned was no longer working when I went in to the store this evening. I was told that I needed to contact customer service by calling the Starbucks number on the back of the card. Has this happened to anyone else?

Not on my stack, is it bec i spread my returns to different stores. I am not sure how starbucks can still track these cards since when you return the varismo the transaction cuts off the tie from the consolidated cards. I was paying attention to the cashier on how he was returning it and he didnt input the old receipt number or old gc cards i used to pay it. He just scanned the varismo and gave me a store credit.

Now, maybe you returned multiple on the same store and the manager got suspecious and check your return receipt and started investigating?

Yes I did return two of them to one store only because I had bought both of them in one transaction on one gift receipt. I'm debating whether I should call Starbucks to inquire about the freeze on my Store Credit Card. I was hoping the SD community could shed some light on this. I would like more info on what the inquiry might entail.

How early can you claim a bday reward?

I had trouble today using the bday reward in an account of May 21st. I had received the "You are in..." email a few days after I registered it last month, but not the email confirming that I have the reward loaded. the account was made via app, and linked to an app-generated-card.

It seems to vary, not sure exactly how they do it. I think you're best bet is to log into your account and you see the birthday reward loaded onto your card. Once you see it there, it is active.
