When you give a Starbucks Card, you’re giving more than just a gift or a token of appreciation. You’re connecting with customers and employees by providing them something that’s practical and meaningful from a widely-recognized brand

So many people came in to my store and tried to buy it. It's only available online through google, not SBUX

yeah we had a lot of customers thinking it was an in-store thing. wish corporate had at least sent out an fyi about this...

Bought it and tried to transfer it to my starbucks account.

Got this error: Service Unavailable

HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable.

Perhaps the servers are overloaded?

Actually, now I can't even get the starbucks homepage to load

There was a notification on the in store portal put up on the 3rd (yesterday) to ensure partners knew what was going on and where to direct questions. Guess some people in some stores dropped the ball on checking action items and news.

Don't forget about the free coffee/iced coffee/ice tea or hot tea coming April 22 when customer brings in a tumbler....or next everyone will saying they didn't know when they get bombarded with customers that day!

coffee soldier,

i left my store yesterday at 5pm, up until then there was no action item, trust me i kept checking. Also i hope you live in Canada because the April 22 offer only pertains to them

I got my Google Offers deal without pain, and was able to quickly transfer the money to my registered card. I was in a store at 7:30 a.m. and the poor barista was trying to explain it to customers; it looked like it was going to be a long day for SBUX employees.

There wasn't anything posted until 7am EST yesterday about this. I called and got the info from corporate. There WAS an item this morning stating that nothing was sent out other than Howard mentioning it somewhere that wasn't an action item.

which companies purchase starbucjs gift cards?

Maybe you could wrap them in paper and crush them with something heavy, like a stone then unrwap them. You may not get finely ground, but if you don't have access to a grinder this could work. Then your coffee will give you stronger muscles AND put hair on your chest! (Ok, just kidding about the hair )If you wanted them more finely ground, you could try using mortar and pestul (sp?) after crushing them in the paper.

Well .save your two hundred dlolars. You don't need to spend a cent to make money online. I make money by just filling out surveys and offers. I don't want to breach the terms and whatnot, so if you're interested, I have a link on my profile to my favorite survey/offer sites. Good luck to you!

I'm sure she'd be happy with just the gift card but you could also get her a cd or some cute inexpensive lwrejey from target,lip gloss,nail stuff, or hair accessories.
