Free Starbucks Stars (Towards Status and Free Drink) Working This Time!

Yesterday I posted a deal for possible free Starbucks ‘stars’ which are credits towards free drinks and elite status.

Most people reported it wasn’t working, and indeed I noted in my original post that it didn’t work for me. But since Dan’s Deals had success with it, I passed it along in case it was useful to anyone.

Then today Ivan Y posted in the comments,

Thank you! Didn’t have any stars in my account and 1st & 3rd codes worked 🙂

P.S. This was at 5:30 pm CST on 3/31.

So I went and tried it again myself, the first code didn’t work for me but the second and third ones did.

No guarantees it’ll work for you, but could be worth trying again. The very quick instructions and codes here.

  1. Only 3 worked for me but I replaced the last digit with a K and it worked. Try replacing the last digit with another letter and it may work

  2. 1st and 2nd didn’t work. Third worked, then I tried the first again and it worked. So you might want to try the codes a few times if you aren’t getting them to work.

  3. The first and third one worked for me! This is great as I have a star challenge for earning 30 stars during April will earn me an additional 20 bonus stars

  4. Also got two of them to work, but the stars aren’t yet showing up in my account. For those who’ve also been able to make this work, how long before the stars show up in your rewards dashboard or in the app?

  5. Great. Now SlickDeals found out. Glad I got my Gold status back before the unwashed masses stormed in.

  6. I tried MCATALINL and LINK and they worked. the other two did not when I tried a couple of days later.
