Right now when you register a Starbucks gift card with their rewards program, they’ll send you a coupon for a free Starbucks beverage of your choice any size. I registered two Starbucks cards that we received as wedding gifts and received my coupon about a week later.
Once you’re registered, you’ll get free refills on regular coffee during your visit, a free tall coffee with whole bean purchases, and free flavor shots when you use your card. You’ll also receive special promotional offers and freebies by email. When the new Vivanno smoothie came out, registered Starbucks cardholders received one free during a two-day promo.
