11 Ways To Save Money At Starbucks

When it comes to coffee, we don’t joke. It’s legit the reason we’re out of bed in the morning. Well, that and work. If you’re part of the 12.36 million households in America who visited a Starbucks at some point in 2018 (before work, probs), you might want to buckle up. Here are just a few ways to hack the Starbucks system to ensure you get an exceptionally good—and cheaper—cup. *Sips coffee*

Sign up for Starbucks Rewards

Chances are you’ve been gifted a Starbucks gift card at least once. Hold on to it! That card is a door that can lead you to a whole new world. If you register a gift card, you’ll rack up points (a.k.a stars) every time you make a Starbucks purchase with the Rewards program. That goes for food, drink, and merchandise purchases. When you get a certain number of stars, you’ll get free drinks or food.

Keep an eye out for promos

Sign up for promo emails (don’t worry, they’re not annoyingly spammy) or check the Starbucks app. There you’ll find Happy Hour specials (like 50 percent off), extra star rewards based on your purchase, and just good old BOGO offers. So, yes, you can have your cake (pop) and eat it too.

Bring a reusable cup…and save 10 cents

Every time you bring a reusable cup from home, you’ll save 10 cents on your drink. If you don’t have a reusable one from Starbucks, that’s cool too! Bring in whatever you have. If you bring a competitor’s paper cup, though, it’ll be replaced with a Starbucks paper cup…and you’ll still get 10 cents off.

Get discounted refills

After you’re done with your drink, you can get a refill of brewed coffee or tea for just 50 cents, regardless of what your first drink was. The only thing is you have to stay inside the store to get a refill. Once you leave, you can’t take advantage of the deal.

Ask for an iced tea with no water

I know this sounds strange, but hear me out. Starbucks’ iced tea is made strong, but when it’s time to be served, it’s watered down. If you ask for your iced tea with no water, you’re essentially getting more of the tea (and the caffeine that comes along with it).
