The well known alleged tax avoiding chain
All Starbucks Discounts, Offers and Sale - June 2018
This is on first direct portal now, 20% off
Following up on the above, just to confirm the cashback was in my current account this morning.
Just to confirm I received my 'tracking' email for my purchase (£20 in my case) from Saturday to confirm my 20% (£4) is being processed...
Yeah, I'll have a go for it. Thanks for the post Op. Good one :)
I've used a couple of Visa Rewards ones in the past for giftcards (definitely Amazon). I don't believe they can see what you've purchased, just an eligible transaction. Nothing I can see on this one even trying to discourage credit top up. If it helps give confidence I'll post an update next week when the credit tracks - might be in time before 04/06 when this expires, but I obviously can't promise.
Just go instore tommorow purchase either a bag of beans, 2 x pack of pods or a packet of starbucks VIA and they will automatically offer you a free tall cold craft latte (cold brew) and if you dont like that they will give you a free tall regular latte. Its to promote the new cold craft coffee range.
The franchise thing is annoying. I bought a Groupon voucher for Starbucks and then found out the three nearest me were all franchises.
so do you have to empty the bag for this or can you get in store straightaway?
Don't know sorry.
I read somewhere they are only catering for the retail market, not stores.
Worth noting you can buy a small biscuit sepearately and it counts as a star
Yes, I do this all the time. The staff don't mind unless it's really busy, then I just order on the app instead. It also seems that most, if not all purchases get you a star. Back when I bought a reusable cup, the guy told me to buy that first, then I'd get 1 star and then get my first 25p off my drink.
Costa is better cos u get 10 points for every £1 u spend and the prices at costa are way cheaper.
If i am buying two coffees can i pay for one then the other after and get two stars.
Mine is get 14 earn 16 bonus....they're having a laugh :p
Similar offer, this time for HSBC customers but worth checking your Visa rewards page if a Nationwide of First Direct customer - https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/hsbc-customers-10-or-20-off-starbucks-including-gift-card-topups-2945649
Let me guess... 20% if you never/rarely buy in Starbucks cos you appreciate a good coffee and Starbucks isn't hitting the mark. I'm obviously in this category. 10% if you have bought stuff in Starbucks but according to your 'data profile' you need to buy more terrible coffee. 0% if you're already suckered in to loving their terrible coffee and you don't need a discount cos you're going to buy it anyway. :p
10% on mine
Not showing for me, it's a shame as I just went there today and will probably go again soon!
Can't see it on mine either- not that I would have used it if it was!
That's my local branch... we may have crossed paths there... small world.
I can't get my head around the cold icy coffee fad. Eww Good deal for those who can stomach it though, heat
Still useful to have it in the title for such a limited promotion
@OwlEye Thanks for posting, if it helps you in future, using the expiry feature, when posting deals, will set the deal to correctly expire (in this case 28/04/2018). Which will save you from needing to include this in your deal title. I hope that helps.
I'm sure if you scribble that part out they won't notice, if your black you can start a riot if they refuse to give you coffee It works I'll send you proof by a YouTube video
Can I use the code if paying with a card (not through the app)? I've set up a card within the app, If I scan the app to pay will it go through, like it does with Nero? Mind I don't have any balance on the Starbucks card.
This is the reusable cup I was given. Easy to cover over Starbucks with a bit of tape, if you don't want it on show. Otherwise just hold the cup with the Starbucks facing your palm. Then the image is only displayed to the world.
Got my free cup (with latte) today. Really nice cup and the lid is SO much nicer (on the lips, no euphemism!) than the plastic ones.
No reusable cups left in Dunfermline drive through
Yep. Got a tall cold Double Chocolatey Chip Frappuccino yesterday. The cup was filled to the brim. So probably got a grande for the price of a tall. If they always do that, then it may be worth just ordering a short and getting the cup completely filled with the beverage. Used my HUKD flamedeer £2 gift card winnings from the other year too. They deducted 25p from the order too. I thought this was going to be only for future refills. Anyone else find you need to be careful with putting the lid on? Mine pops up in places when pushing down. Have to keep it pressed down on one side and then push down around the rest to ensure it is properly fitted.
Very poor quality, and it was £1.25, so I didn't get one
Cofee is a drug, not nearly as addictive as tobacco, but still adictive
are they any good?? i bought some Greggs ones and they are crap by the way, I am not a regular consumer of "coffee to go" butt will it be possible to have a Contigo (or Thermos or whatever) mug and buy cofees in these shops?
Any ideas on the likelihood of Waitrose being happy with people using these mugs for free coffee there? Turns out they're getting rid of non reuseable cups in the Autumn. Can't blame them to be honest as they are kinda inindated with people. http://www.waitrose.com/home/mywaitrose/free_tea_or_coffee.html
Just got some lovely outta press
Might be a daft question but is this instant coffee?
You can also buy in bulk (6 packs) for the same per pack price at Amazon if more suitable for anyone, e.g. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Starbucks-House-Blend-Ground-Coffee/dp/B00OPVLYP0/ I'd seen a review on there suggesting the Best Before Dates on the packs were quite close though (hard to verify) and I think you can run up to +30 days from the date on the pack to claim your free drink in store so would need to keep that in mind.
I don't care about E bay or anything I'll just have my coffee and enjoy it (excited) thx
personally i think this is a good deal if you are making a purchase on ebay, i will enjoy my coffee soon :) thanks.
Agree. Don't let it put you off. It will help some people out (y)
This place is a mixed bag - never stops amazing me when I see wild geese chase deals/OOS deals getting so much heat where people don't check at all and just vote hot - and yet at other times good deals get thrashed - well, doesn't matter much. Looked like a good deal to me, so I posted and will keep doing the same going forward too :)
I know, some people need the power of persuasion to see it's a good deal lol! . You could add something like - if spending £50 on eBay don't forget to claim this to the title. Think some people might see it in a different light as Now it just looks like spending £50 to get a £5. I know it's silly but some people don't look at it as a heads up to help them if they were spending (y)
Wow really?! I may have to try this!! (y)
Perfect to use as a body scrub. Messy but effective, leaves skin unbelievably soft
Waitrose have been doing this for ages!
I have been a regular at Starbucks for many years (stopped now Ive got my own bean to cup!) never seen a single bag so not everyone knows.
Yes, there was a promo running that week for an extra stamp, if you buy a cake slice or tray bake. You should get 2 + 1 stamps for the O2 deal. If you used the free coffee barcode (not O2, the code via the app), that doesn't give any stamps, as is the case with the completed stampcard free coffee. Those do NOT award stamps
I got the coffee & cake o2 deal & also got another coffee (free as entered the code on the cafe Nero app also posted on hukd) I only got 3 stamps altogether, I thought there was bonus stamps at the moment? I scanned the app.....
Dear O2 I’m back and thanks (lol) (lol)
New 1p sims arrived today I’ll be having coffee and cake 🍰 tomorrow yaaay 8)
£2.49 in Cheltenham
I would clear them out!!! Heat.
Possibly store specific as they are still 2.49 online
I was just in the Coatbridge Store and they were reduced to 2.49 - possible mis-price or store specific?
Usually £2.50 - £2.70 in most supermarkets, they take it in turn with the offer. Used it a lot, only had it refused once and that was at Eurotunnel in France
Always had these accepted for a free latte. Usually pick the packet of coffee you for £2.50 though. Heat added.
This has been on the packs for years. many outlets refuse to redeem them though.
Seconded. I got a couple of packs of this last year only to later discover that the 3 or 4 nearest Starbucks to me wouldn't accept them. Very misleading promotion with this highly restrictive condition hidden away in the small print.
Thought you probably could get it cheaper, budgens are expensive! Thanks for that
How ironic, you criticize Starbucks for tax avoidance and then praise your 'local' boots which is one of the biggest tax avoiders there is!!! https://www.medact.org/project/alliance-boots-campaign/
Can't stand Starbucks, tax thieving b......d!. I think I will still be going to my local Boots who do thier sandwiches and salads at 50p at the end of the day.
I don't give two hoots about shareholders. I feel strongly that as part of a society founded on a general principle of benevolence and caring for others, that companies and those who avoid (note wording) paying tax should be more stringently controlled and taken Tuesday m to task. I believe in giving back. People like you, clearly don't. Different strokes.
Do you think share holders give two hoots about morals? With my own business I pay an accountant very well to get my liabilities down as much as possible. I am sure Paul Nikkel who owns this site and quidco etc does the same too .. if you were a family earning £50k a year and claiming child tax credits like your entitled to, do you think that's morally correct? After all they don't need it and the money could be spent on better things? My own mother in law is disabled and the government provides her with a car, she uses it once a fortnight to do her shopping, the last one she got had done only 522 miles in 3 years, clearly it would be cheaper to get a taxi once a fortnight, is that morally right? You can attack and find faults with every sector, I don't blame Starbucks, I blame the system. Infact the biggest tax evaders are Google, Apple, Microsoft, IKEA and Amazon, so I hope you don't use any of theirs products or services? Because that would be morally wrong (y)
Yeah, just jump on the bandwagon that avoiding taxation is strictly not illegal therefore ok, despite being morally bankrupt, with the government supposedly doing everything to allow it to continue.
It was an email screenshot as it’s (weirdly) not in the app
6 for me
Mines 2 for 2 - any purchase counts in these things so if you normally grab a bottle of water or something it will count towards your points- you can get more than one star that day ( I have had around three in a day no problem)
Mines collect 3 get 3, then anything over that is doubled - started the January on gold with 50 stars required before the end of the year, I only need 8 for another year of gold. 🤪
Good to know
It is the exam you took to determine whether you went to grammar school or secondary modern. If you passed you went to grammar school, if you didn't, you didn't. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-42839930 My little niece got her results yesterday.
What's the old eleven plus?
Bit like the old eleven plus
ok, im gonna ask...What on earth are transfer results??
Lol I'm one of those ppl (y)
As these are roast to an inch of their life, they are very forgiving and make a decent espresso based drink or a v60 Personally love these as you know exactly what you’re getting. Fed up of artisan coffee roaster charging £8 for 250g of what mainly tastes of dishwater
coffee beans can be expensive, so every little offer helps thanks for the post
How is it that people don't understand that plurals don't take an apostrophe?
Heat from me (y)
How can you buy beans that have probably been sitting in the packet for 6 months. Plenty of websites out there that roast to order. I got my eletta delonghi delivered on the 27th.. ordered the beans on the 25th (Christmas day).. the packet says they were roasted on the 27th and they arrived on the 29th. Was once told, never buy coffee beans that have a best before date, they really should only have a roasted date on them. BTW it was a 1KG bag for 9.99 plus delivery.. from the grindhouse. First time customers get a 20% off popup code if you input your email, helps pay for the delivery by royal mail. https://www.grindhousecoffee.co.uk Coffee I went for https://www.grindhousecoffee.co.uk/products/grind-house-reunion-blend
Think it was only 20 percent of the £5 cards only.
Sorry, it appears that the deal has now expired. I have marked it now.
I don't get this deal. I am checking out on the £20 card but I am not getting 20% off. Can you help me lol do I need to enter coupon or something
The 30p fee is for when the payment goes through their payment processors, according to the FAQs - so any card purchase But I still get charged it when buying with my existing Zeek credit - A stiff word is called for, methinks...
