Starbucks Deal - $5 for a $10 Starbucks Card eGift

It's a US Only deal. Limits 1 per person. Deal Expires 11/08/2013 11:59PM.

But it should work here as well, as they accept Starbucks eGifts at Canadian Starbucks.

Go here (for purchase): All Seattle Deals | Groupon

Starbucks eGift FAQ: FAQ for Starbucks Groupon (It even says on here that it works in Canada).

then change your location to a US City (I used Seattle, WA), then type "Starbucks" in the search bar. The Starbucks deal should show up shortly after, then just go from there.

I bought with a Canadian CC, so that shouldn't be a problem.

EDIT: I believe this deal has ENDED.

That's OK, I just call them up and they transfer it. Did that before. Act all dumb and they'll do it.

Besides, I don't care, as I go south of the border all the time.

I've only added the gift card to my account, so when ever I need to pay, I'll just show them on my Starbucks app

Yeah, it's easier this way then transfer funds from the eGift to your Starbucks card. Just add the eGift to your Starbucks app, like you would add a Starbucks card.

To all you folks that has a registered starbucks card, it is better to transfer the money from the eGift card to your actual registered card. this will rack up the stars on your registered card. faster towards your free drink/food.

i work at starbucks and i have transferred over egift cards to starbucks cards before. the till has never given me an error before in doing so. and i don't recall the egift cards ever declaring it was canadian or from the US

It doesn't have to be on a specific card, as long as they're all linked to the same account. That way if you give your parents cards and they're not savvy they can help you rack up stars haha and yeah the till doesn't care if it was a sbux card bought with USD but if you pay USD cash there's an exchange rate.

Yes you can. As a Starbucks employee, I can tell you that any card from the US/Canada/The Uk is compatible (you can tell this because you can switch the currency value from any of those to any other). While the online one is kind of finicky, in-store it's not a problem.

Please, as a guy who works at a Starbucks, don't be a dick and decide to come in during the morning rush and transfer ten of those that you've gotten by using a bunch of spoof emails during the morning rush. Yes, we'll do it for you. We might even do it with a smile. But we will fucking hate you for it.

If you read the previous post. You can't transfer online from US egift -> Canadian Starbucks card. You need to call in to customer service or go to a physical store to do the transfer.

Thanks, sorry - I did read it but I was confused on whether I had to go into the actual store to transfer the funds or do it online (and then I got the errror message). Thanks for the clarification! I just re-read the thread now with fresh eyes and I figured it out.

Was reading the thread last night late and watching TV, close to bedtime after my long day at work so prolly wasn't thinking straight.
