Let’s get into it!
What Exactly Is Double Star Day At Starbucks?
The 'Starbucks Double Star Days' promotion occurs a couple of times every month.
Pop into your local store (check it's participating first), and on the Double Star Days, you'll earn double on eligible purchases.
When you earn double stars they’ll go towards Starbucks Rewards, which you can redeem any time you like (more on this in the sections below).
Picture the Starbucks coffee you LOVE the most… Got it? Starbucks Double Star Days are exactly when to order it again. You’ll get the drink you crave and double stars to go with it.
When Is Starbucks Double Star Day?
Finding out when your local Starbucks lets you earn double stars for the Rewards program costs less than a cup of coffee (pun not intended, I swear!)
Here’s how to find out:
How Does It Work?
So I’ll cut out the jargon and get straight to the point.
Simply download the Starbucks app, and it'll keep you posted about the next Starbucks Double Star Days.
If you buy your favorite Starbucks drink or food with your card from Starbucks, you’ll get FOUR stars per $1 spent.
Free drinks start at 100 stars. If that’s way more than you’ve got right now, all is not lost! You can get extra coffee shots, syrup, or sauce for just 25 of them.
Just think - if you stop by a Starbucks Monday-Friday, you could get about 50 a week just spending $5 a trip. If that kind of value doesn't leave you all starry-eyed, I don't know what will!
On Double Star Days, you’ll get 20 for $5. Epic or what?!
How To Join Starbucks Rewards And Earn Stars
I bet you'd LOVE to know how to get some stars with your next hot coffee, protein box, or extra espresso shot, right?
Here’s the answer:
That's really all it takes. Quicker than drinking a cup of your favorite drink, come to think of it.
You'll earn stars on hot tea, hot breakfast, and drip coffee, among other things. Every store varies, but there's ALWAYS a chance to get them.
How To Activate Double Star Day At Starbucks
It’s a great feeling to reserve those specific Double Star Days for some glorious Starbucks goodness… but sometimes you’ve GOT to activate them too.

Common Starbucks Double Star Day Questions
Did Starbucks stop Double Star Days?
No, Starbucks Star Days have not been stopped, and specific days are still set aside for the promotion in participating Starbucks stores. Check online or by visiting in person.
How often does Starbucks do Double Star Days?
Starbucks does Double Star Days every single month on particular days. They apply to most purchases made with mobile wallets, cash, and cards. Starbucks will tell you when the next one is coming up.
Can I use Starbucks stars more than once a day?
Yes, you can use Starbucks stars many times a day. There are some key rules. You can’t use different star tiers in the same order. And you can’t redeem multiple Rewards together. This means you can only use one set of stars on purchases forming part of the same order.
What time do Starbucks stars expire?
Starbucks stars expire 6 months after you receive them. So if they’re left on your account and not used, you’ll have been paying for all those cups of tasty drinks with no reward! Also, your oldest stars get used first.
Do Starbucks stars max out?
Thankfully, Starbucks stars don’t max out. You can grab a tea over and over, and you’ll just keep getting more of those well-deserved stars. The most you can spend on one reward is 400 if you’re lucky enough to have that many yet!
Is there a Triple Star Day at Starbucks?
Sometimes Starbucks will run a Triple Star Day. These are things of legend because they're so rare they're almost a fairy tale. There's nothing in the Rewards terms about them, but they've been known to happen. Check out the social media channels and you may be in luck!
