How to Get Free Coffee at Starbucks

PSL-e1410281913717Whenever we’re staying up late or wanting to stay awake for the entire day, the first thing that comes in mind is always coffee. And when we speak of coffee, our thoughts just go flying to the best coffee shop we know — Starbucks. However, we all know that Starbucks doesn’t come cheap and we also know that we don’t want to deprive ourselves of those delicious mixes. Surprisingly enough, there are ways for you to get free coffee, free food, and even free refills!

First off, the next time you visit Starbucks, ask a barista or a Starbucks employee for a Starbucks Reward card and make sure to register it online. In addition to that, you can download the Starbucks app into your phone. By then, you can load your card with any amount that you choose. All you need to do is make a purchase with either your Starbucks card or with your Starbucks app and you will receive stars for every purchase. The stars will determine your membership level and rating.

  • The Welcome/Entry Level

When you first register your card, you are in the “entry level” wherein you can get free birthday drinks or treats loaded into your account. You can also get 15% off discounts on any order at the online Starbucks Store. You are given early access to new products and by having the Starbucks mobile app, payment is easier and you can get to monitor your rating and membership level.

  • The Green Level

After obtaining 5 stars on the entry level within a span of 12 months, then the next is the Green Level wherein you get to have all the benefits from the entry level with an added bonus which is THE FREE REFILLS which can be fresh brewed coffee, iced coffee, or tea.

  • The Gold Level

The third and final level is the Gold Level which you can only get by earning 30 stars in a span of 12 months wherein the benefits from past levels still apply but with another added bonus which is getting free drinks every time you gain 12 stars. In addition to that, once you’re on Gold Level, you can even get a personalized Gold Card.

One of the greatest perk about Starbucks that is hidden to most is that whenever you are inside Starbucks reading a book, writing a study, and etc., you can get unlimited refills. Of course, the refills only happen after you have gone up to the Green Level. The awesomeness of this doesn’t just stop at the unlimited refills but there’s also the fact that even if you order a pumpkin spiced latte at first, you can have a salted caramel mocha as a refill! Oh, and they are absolutely GLUTEN FREE.

If you’re the type to love doing desk works, homework, reading books, and other activities within Starbucks, then it’s a given for you to enjoy these perks as wonderful as these and take advantage of them to the fullest!
