Starbucks Card

Starbucks Singapore just launched a new card. The Starbucks Card is a stored value card. The minimum activation is at $10 and can be topped up in $10 denominations.

But it’s not just a stored value card. You get rewards for using it:
– Buy 12 handcrafted beverage and get 1 free
– Buy a 250g wholebean coffee and get a tall brewed coffee
– Buy ten 250g wholebean coffee and get a free 250g wholebean coffee
Not only that. If you register the card online at, you will also get:
– A complimentary tall-sized handcrafted beverage
– A complimentary slice of cake with any handcrafted beverage purchased during your birthday month (valid two weeks before and after your birthday)
If you are buying the Starbucks Card, I advise you to register the card online. Not only will you get a complimentary drink, you can also track your transaction. And if you lose your Starbucks Card, you can simply log in and deactivate your card and transfer the remaining balance to a new card. Cool!
From the website, it looks like they will be implementing online top up in the near future. Cool.
Actually, there is 1 feature lacking in the Starbucks Card. It would be good if they allow you to input your favorite drink into the system. When you want to order our favorite drink, just pass your card to the barista and the system will tell him/her what’s your favorite drink and how you want it to be done. This will speed up the ordering if you just want to order your favorite drink (especially if your favorite drink is super complicated)
So what are you waiting for? Go buy the new Starbucks Card now.
PS: I quite like the card design.


  1. hey!
    i happened to stumble on your site while googling for info about the starbucks card.
    how much isit actually? as in how much do you pay upfront at the store for the card? isit pay $10 for the card but the 10 goes into the card’s balance?
    and are we supposed to register at the store and then after that go online to register?
    thanks πŸ™‚

  2. Ksssss: The min amount is $10. All $10 goes into the card balance. Just tell the Barista that you wanna buy the Starbucks Card and they will feed you with the details. And remember to register your card online to get the free drink. πŸ™‚
    Han Cheng: yeap. Looks elegant and beautiful.

  3. Hello, so I can just go to a starbucks outlet and buy a card at 10 dollars, and all 10 bucks will o into the card. Then how do I top up the card?
