Do you have a Starbucks gift card in your gift card wallet or regular wallet right now? If you register that card with the Starbucks Loyalty Program, you’ll get a free $5 added to the gift card. Or at least that’s my understanding of the promotion.
This $5 freebie is available through March 14.
You do have to go through a bit of a convoluted way to get to the freebie, but I think it’s worth the effort.
First, you need to sign up for LivingSocial, if you haven’t already.
Then, you need to head over to “Midtown NYC” deals on LivingSocial. Because even though this seems to be a national deal, I could find it on the Midtown NYC page only. It should show up nearly at the top of the offers page. (You can always go back and set your “real” home city for offers once you’re done registering for this deal.)
Click through to join the loyalty program and register your card. It’s that simple.
Of course, if you are already a member of the Starbucks Loyalty Program, you won’t get the $5 freebie.
LivingSocial does have a search function, if you can’t find it.
Now if only someone had given me a Starbucks gift card for the holidays…
