Starbucks logoStarbucks: MoneySaving tips and tricksIncluding 25p off when you use your own cup, app offers

Ongoing

There are always ways to save money at Starbucks, so even if there isn’t a cracking deal out there that works for you, don’t assume you can’t cut your costs further.

Ways to save include:

  • Offers for Starbucks rewards card holders. If you pick up a freeStarbucks gift card (it doubles as your reward card) in store, you can register it online to load it with money, eg £5, which you can then use to purchase drinks at Starbucks. With each drink you purchase using the card or the app you'll get one star, and when you've 15 you'll be emailed a voucher for a free drink. You'll also be emailed other offers from time to time, eg, 50% off drinks or breakfast items. See full T&Cs.
  • 25p off if you use a reusable cup. If you bring a reusable cup, you can get 25p off your drink. It doesn't have to be a Starbucks cup, but it helps if it's a similar size to those offered by Starbucks. The cheapest reusable cup sold by Starbucks is £1, so if you'll use it more than four times you'll have made your money back.
  • Check out similar coffee chains. If you’re not committed to Starbucks, see our Caffè Nero and Costa Coffee pages, where you may find a better deal. Also check out our free tea and coffee page to see if you could get your beverage free elsewhere.
  • Had a problem with Starbucks? There’s a free online tool you can use to complain – it helps draft, manage and if necessary escalate your complaint. It’s offered by a firm called Resolver, which we like so much we work with it to help people get complaints justice – you can use it to complain to Starbucks*.

If you spot any hot deals out there we have missed (we are human after all!), please let us know. Email us at msedeals@moneysavingexpert.com or via MSE Facebook and Twitter @MSE_Deals.

Starbucks logoFREE Starbucks espresso capsules?Compatible with Nespresso machines. Limited stock

Ongoing

If you go to a Starbucks store (find your nearest) and ask nicely, you might be able to get two Starbucks espresso coffee pod samples free, subject to stock.

They're compatible with Nespresso coffee machines and come in one of four flavours: Espresso roast, Guatemala Antigua, Colombia or Kenya.

The promo started on Wed 4 Jan, and there's no guarantee your local will have any, but it's worth a look if you're passing by. There's also a coupon inside for a free tall latte when you purchase a full pack of espresso capsules (from £11.50 for 40).

Expired Deals

Starbucks logoFREE 2ish tall latte at StarbucksLimited stores, 1pm-2pm until Thu 23 Mar. Norm 2.40ish

Expired

Between 1pm and 2pm every day until Thu 23 Mar, you can get a free tall latte at selected Starbucks stores across Great Britain (stores in Northern Ireland are excluded) - about 15 locations daily. There’s no code or voucher needed, you can just walk out with your freebie, which normally costs from £2.40ish. 

The 15ish locations will change daily, and you'll be able the find out the next day's locations at 2pm the day prior on the Starbucks website. Starbucks told us that most locations will only participate once, and if you're in the queue before 2pm staff will do their best to serve everyone.

You can only get a tall latte (including ice lattes), no other drinks are included, but you can request decaffeinated or non-dairy milk and a free shot of syrup (norm 50p).

Coupons for 50% off any food item after 11am or 50% off a Burnt caramel latte or Salted toffee macadamia latte (both included in this free offer) after 11am will also be handed out. The coupons are valid until Mon 3 Apr, but can't be used in travel locations.

While this is a decent freebie, if you rely on a daily tea or coffee to perk you up, check out our Demotivator tool to see how much you're spending every day. Also check our free tea and coffee page to see if you could grab another free drink if the Starbucks pop-up party location isn't near you on that day.

Starbucks logoStarbucks 2for1 Valentine's drinksOn Tue 14 Feb only. Molten Hot Choc or Choc Frappuccino

Expired

Here's an offer that's sure to perk you up on Valentine's Day...

On Tue 14 Feb only, you can get 2for1 at Starbucks on small, medium or large Valentine's Day drinks - Molten Hot Chocolate or Molten Chocolate Frappuccino.

There's no voucher needed, just go in, order two Valentine's drinks and the cheapest one will be free. The offer's only valid on the Molten Hot Chocolate or Molten Chocolate Frappuccino (norm from £3.15 for a small).

Where can I get this offer?

Starbucks says the 2for1 will only be available in participating stores (those in cinemas, airports and hotels do not usually take part in these offers). It's difficult to know which stores will be taking part as it wouldn't supply us with a full list, so it's worth calling ahead to check if your nearest store is participating.

There have been issues with previous Starbucks deals, where staff were not aware of the full details of the offer. Starbucks says staff have been fully briefed about this deal, but you can contact Starbucks customer services on 020 8834 5000 if you need to confirm any details.

Amex logoAmerican Express: 1 off 3 StarbucksPlatinum Cashback & Platinum Cashback Everyday cards

Expired

American Express regularly releases new cashback offers when you spend a set amount at certain stores.

What's more, you can use these offers alongside discount vouchers, or in a sale, to maximise the savings. Plus if you've got an Amex cashback card, you get your normal level of cashback as well.

£1 cashback when you spend £3 at Starbucks

Until Sun 27 Nov, American Express Platinum Cashback cardholders can get £1 cashback on a £3 spend at participating Starbucks stores. Once you've added the offer to your Amex card, it can be used up to five times. This even includes topping up your MyStarbucks loyalty card in store.

The offer's only available to the first 100,000 cardholders to add the offer to their cards (see how below), so you'll need to go quick if you want it.

How it works

  • Log in to your account. Log in online at American Express or via the Amex app.
  • Go to the 'Offers' section. Select the Starbucks offer and add it to your card. You must pre-select the offer online before you visit a store, you can't just walk in and pay.
  • Visit a store with your card. Find your nearest participating store and pay with your connected card to redeem the offer. You don’t need a code or a voucher.

Once you've redeemed an offer, you'll have to wait for the cash. It should appear as a credit to your card within five days of the payment, but could take up to 90 days to appear in your account.

It's worth noting that once the offer has been redeemed the maximum number of times, it will disappear from the site. See the full T&Cs.

What if I don't have an Amex card?

If you don't have an American Express card, in theory you could get one to access these deals, but consider first if a credit card is right for you. Read MSE's Credit Cards section for full info. If you do go for it, it'll take around two weeks for your application to be processed and for you to receive your card. Use our credit card eligibility checker to see if you'll be accepted first.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
