Through Friday, Aug. 24, Starbucks is offering a freebie of $10 when you auto-reload a new or current Starbucks card through the Starbucks phone app with your Visa card.
Here's how to do it:
Get a Starbucks gift card, either an existing one or a new one from Starbucks, and register it online. Note: if you get a new card, you only have to load $5 on it.
From iTunes, download Starbucks free app on your phone. Through your app, add your card.
Never miss a local story.
Now, set up the auto-reload using a Visa card of at least $25. Every month, your Starbucks card will load $25.
The bonus of $10 will be added within 10 business days of your first completed auto-reload transaction. If you no longer want to auto-reload after you receive your bonus, you can cancel. In addition to the bonus money, you will also earn free drinks!
