Starbucks and American Express want to help you get your morning buzz for a little bit cheaper. They’ve launched a new promotion offering 15% off for targeted cardholders through Amex Offers.
For the uninitiated, Amex Offers are opt-in, limited-time deals to targeted cardholders, such as:
- 2,500 bonus points for spending $50+ on Stitch Fix (available through Feb. 28)
- $10 statement credit for spending $25+ on Seamless or Grubhub (available through Mar. 26)
- $60 statement credit for spending $300+ at MGM Resorts (available through Apr. 22)
- $60 statement credit for spending $300+ at Kimpton Hotels (available through May 1)
- $100 statement credit for spending $500+ at St. Regis Hotels & Resorts (available through May 31)
But, today we’re talking Starbucks. Through Mar. 25, you’ll get 15% off all Starbucks purchase on targeted cards:
The offer is capped at a maximum of $5, and unfortunately, that maximum isn’t per transaction, but overall. The terms and conditions note that “Limit $5 in statement credit(s) per American Express online account.” That means you’ll max out this offer after spending about $33.34 at Starbucks, though you don’t have to spend that amount all at one time — just before the offer expires.
The good news is this offer seems to pop up every few months, so you can continue to save by signing up for each version.
Unfortunately, this offer can’t be used for e-gift card purchases or physical gift cards purchased online. However, eligible purchases include “app reloads” as well as purchases “in-store at stand-alone Starbucks locations.”
While $5 isn’t a huge amount of savings, you might as well add the offer to your account if you’re a Starbucks fan. And while you’re logged in, make sure to check your list of Amex Offers for other valuable savings:
Remember that Amex Offers are targeted, so not every American Express card will be included in this promotion. In order to see if you’ve been targeted — and to enroll in the offer — log in to your AmericanExpress.com account and scroll down to the “Amex Offers and Benefits” section (you may need to click “Load More” to see the offer).
I’m personally just 1-for-7 on my Amex credit cards (0/3 on personal cards and 1/4 on business cards) showing me this Starbucks deal, with only my The Blue Business℠ Plus Credit Card from American Express targeted for the offer.
If you’ve been targeted on multiple cards, note that Amex has been cracking down on people who attempt to use the same Amex Offer across more than one Amex card, and have even announced its intention to claw back credits from some people who used an Amex Offer on multiple cards. So we recommend only registering this offer on one Amex card, regardless of any workarounds you might have used in the past.
