My Starbucks Rewards has put out yet another targeted promotion, and this time it’s just for two days – Saturday November 29, and Sunday November 30. The targeted offer is for 3 bonus stars for the purchase of any baked good when I pay with my registered card with no registration necessary. The promotion allows me to use this offer as many times as I like. What is totally odd about this offer is that the photo above highlights the Cranberry Bliss Bar (above), yet the terms and conditions (below) specifically states that it excludes “Cranberry Bliss Bar trays” so I guess purchasing one counts, but don’t go crazy purchasing the tray if you want the 3 bonus stars.
Offer valid 11/29/14 — 11/30/14. Purchase any baked good and earn three (3) Bonus Stars. Excludes Cranberry Bliss® Bar trays. Bonus Stars will be automatically loaded to your account within 24 hours. At participating Starbucks® stores. Must pay with your registered Starbucks Card. This offer is exclusive to you and this My Starbucks Rewards® account, and cannot be reproduced, transferred or used by anyone else. Cannot be combined with other offers or discounts. Cash value .01 cent.
Starbucks is still in the middle of a targeted “Star A Day” challenge, as well as in the business of selling a $30 tumbler that gives you free brewed coffee every day in January 2015. Starbucks seems to be upselling, and I have a feeling this won’t be the last that we see of promotions this holiday season!
