#2 Get multiple loyalty cards to enjoy more than one free beverage per year πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

It is so simple, buy more than one loyalty card, register them using different email ids that have different dates of birth and you can buy as many cards and enjoy a free drink every month of the year. You are most welcome

#3 Get your food or drink replaced

If you are not satisfied with the food or drink you have ordered, simply ask for a replacement politely. It can be above the price of the food you have paid for. Starbucks is very professional and customer-centric. But Starbucks staff offers higher-priced food or drink to loyal and regular customers only. You can try this hack but there is a 50-50 chance for you getting the higher priced food or drink in replacement of your order.

#4 Bring Your Own Cup

Get 10 rupees off of your beverage bill if you bring your own cup. It can be any kind of cup you have. Just bring a cup with you from home and enjoy 10 rupees off. Hurrrraaayy

#5 Order Smaller Size But Get Bigger Size

Well, this is clearly a mind game. I did not do it intentionally but I noticed that this happened to me time and again. Starbucks has four sizes for its beverages i.e. Short(smallest), Tall, Grande, Ventya(largest).

The coffee cup that I carry with me to Starbucks is a little larger than the short size (smallest size of a beverage). So most of the time when I order any short drink I get the tall size instead. The baristas are used to the store’s standard sizes and they are habitual to fill the cup fully. And when they start pouring coffee in my cup they fill it entirely out of habit. This happens oftentimes but not every time.

So carry a larger cup and order for the smallest size. Chances are, your bigger cup will get you more coffee for the lesser price. Isn’t it amazing πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°

Bonus Hack

You can get 50% off when you purchase a new Starbucks loyalty card from Magic Pin. I purchased it just today i.e. 16th of January, 2020. I paid 250 Rs and I got a 500 Rs balance in my Starbucks e-card. I don’t know till when this offer will be available but you can surely check it before purchasing.

So don’t wait for a miracle to happen and just go and enjoy these benefits. Do check other useful posts as well πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡
