It's an exciting time for Starbucks Rewards members because you’re invited to play a bingo game that’ll score you some major Bonus Stars. Starbucks’ Bonus Star Bingo is back for the first time since October 2019, and there’s a total of 375 Stars up for grabs, depending on your board. As a refresher, you fill a virtual bingo card to earn Bonus Stars when you order some of your go-to Starbucks’ sips. If you’re down to start earning Stars toward your next free Starbucks sip, you’ll want to consider making a few extra runs because Bonus Star Bingo helps you rack up points fast.
Starbucks has offered the virtual game in the past, and this time around, Starbucks Bonus Star Bingo has up to 375 Bonus Stars available for Rewards members to collect. To find your Bonus Star Bingo board, you must be a Starbucks Rewards member. Only select members are chosen to play the game, so check your email and Starbucks app inbox to see if you’re one of the lucky ones.
Once you activate your Bonus Star Bingo board, you’ll be able to play through Sunday, June 20. The goal of the game is pretty simple — you want to fill your Bonus Star Bingo board as full as possible to accumulate Stars.
Before you get too deep into the game that launched on May 24, make sure any purchases you make to count toward the game are through your Starbucks app, linked card, or registered Starbucks card. If you aren’t using payment methods linked to your Rewards account, you won’t be able to complete challenges to earn Bonus Stars. As you complete coffee run challenges, like grabbing two drinks over the weekend or pairing your handcrafted beverage order with a bakery item in a single transaction, you’ll earn Bonus Stars. Each space on the Bingo card is worth points, while combinations of spaces earn you extra points. You’ll earn a varying number of Bonus Stars for the following:
- When you complete a challenge and fill a bingo space
- When you fill one row of spaces by completing challenges
- When you complete the entire board (!!!)
Once you complete the entire board, you’ll have earned all your available Bonus Stars, which you can redeem for food and drink items. (Total Bonus Star amounts will vary for Reward members.)
After you activate your Bonus Star Bingo board, you’ll sign in to your Rewards account and receive directions for how to play. Basically, you make purchases to complete board spaces. Bonus Star Bingo game boards vary — but will likely feature challenges like weekend coffee runs, lunch breaks, and more. After you complete a Starbucks challenge, you should see golden bingo circles populate on your board.
As you play, keep in mind you can't earn Stars with purchases of Princi products, Starbucks Cards, Starbucks Card reloads, or alcohol, so make sure to follow the bingo prompts closely. If you’re not a Starbucks Rewards member, you can easily sign up on the company's website or download the Starbucks app and sign up for your account. You may not get to participate in the round of Bonus Star Bingo, but once you’re a member, your coffee runs will be a lot more rewarding.
