Coffee Lovers Rejoice! Starbucks Deals Galore!

This post is especially for my wonderful friend Christine. Not only did she host a fantastic girl’s weekend at her apartment in San Francisco, but she is the reason I am writing this post. She encouraged me to keep up with this blog and continue to bring readers fantastic ways to save money. Also, she is from Seattle and LOVES coffee. Starbucks coffee in particular. Christine, drink to your heart’s desire đŸ™‚

First of all, you must go to to view their adorable Holiday themed welcome page! And have your sound turned up! So cute! Click on a few of the links in the top menu. Each one has a different holiday animation. Love it!

Okay, now it’s time to give and SAVE! Click on “The Perfect Gift” tab at the top of the page and when the menu pops up, click “Send an e-gift.” What you’ll need to do is add four $5 gift cards to your shopping cart and you will earn a FREE $5 gift card for yourself! Go ahead, send them to your mom, dad, sister, brother… Okay, who am I kidding? Send them to yourself đŸ™‚ However, if you do want to send them to friends/family members, you can have the e-gift sent at a later day so it arrives in their inbox on Christmas or another special day! Cool, huh?

Once you have added all four e-gifts to your cart and inputted your billing information (you will not be charged yet) there will be a note at the top of the page that says “Congrats! You have qualified to receive your own $5 Starbucks eGift from Visa.” The e-gift will be sent to you email within 24 hours. Yay! Free coffee! Or in Christine’s case, Caramel Apple Cider!

(Bottom line: Pay $20, receive $25 worth of gift cards! That’s 25% more coffee! And let’s face it, you were probably going to spend $20 at Starbucks anyway.)

NOTE: Some people who have tried this deal have said it only works when using a VISA. However, others have used PayPal and have said it still worked. I used a VISA just to be safe.

Now, don’t think that’s all the coffee goodness I have for you today! Go to Target before Dec. 10 to score this great deal on bagged Starbucks coffee:

Starbucks Roast Ground Coffee, 12 oz $7.99, On Sale thru 12/10 
Buy 3 bags of Starbucks coffee, Receive $5.00 Target Gift Card automatically at checkout
Use $3.00 off 2 bags of Starbucks Coffee coupon from Smart Source from Dec. 4
And use $1.00 off 1 bag of Starbucks Coffee coupon from Smart Source from Dec. 4
Pay $19.97, Receive $5.00 Target Gift Card AND go here to redeem for a $5 starbucks gift card! Woot woot!

Final Price: $3.32 each when you buy 3 – That’s more than a 50% savings!

(Note: to receive the $5 starbucks gift card on this deal, you must purchase either three of either 10,11, 12 or 20 oz. ground or whole beans OR 6, 7 or 8 count Stabucks Via Ready Brew. All purchases must be made in the same transaction between the dates of 11/1 and 12/31)

And here’s one more way to get your Starbucks fix for cheap! Text MERRY to 697289 to get daily deals at Starbucks through December 12th! If you don’t want to receive text messages, you can go here to view each daily deal. Tomorrow’s deal is $9.95 for a Sampler Gift Pack of Starbucks Coffee (Regular Price: $14.95) And Tuesday’s deal is $7.95 for Holiday Tumblers (Regular Price: $10.95-$11.95).

That should keep your java buzz going at least until Christmas, right?

If you have any questions about how to get these deals, comment below! I am happy to help!
