Article By:


Starbucks is out with a cool new promo for Apple users. When you send a $5 Starbucks gift card to anyone (including yourself) via iMessage, you’ll receive a $5 Starbucks gift card yourself. By sending the gift card to yourself, you essentially spend $5 to get a total of $10 worth of Starbucks gift cards. Here’s how it works:

  1. Download the Starbucks app to your iPhone 5S or above and make sure you have Apple Pay enabled on your device.
  2. Open iMessage, tap the app button next to the chat bar, tap the four dots in the bottom left corner of the App drawer, tap Store, tap Manage, make sure the ‘Starbucks Gifts’ tab is checked on.
  3. Launch the App drawer in iMessage, tap the Starbucks Gift app, send the Starbucks gift card you want!


Important Details

The first 45,000 people to send the Starbucks gift cards using iMessage are eligible to receive the free $5 gift card. Customers will receive the gift card via the email address associated with their Apple Pay account. The promotion is valid through April 23, 2017 or until 45,000 people have taken advantage of the promotion.
