How to set up the automatic recharge in Starbucks card?
A quite practical and good option offered by the Starbucks application is to be able to perform automatic recharges, for this you have to have associated to the application a credit card with balance from which the gift card can be automatically recharged.
For prudence we recommend that you set a date on your Starbucks gift card so that it recharges on a specific date and not every time it feels low on funds. To activate this option just follow the steps below.
- Log in to the Starbucks app from your mobile device.
- Then go to the option that says ‘May’.
- Then press Manage, followed by Auto-Reload. In this option you will be able to set a minimum balance so that the gift card can be reloaded from your credit card.
If you have an iPhone, make sure that the credit card you have associated is up to date, otherwise you have to delete the card you already have and then add the new account. This way it will be easier to associate the card and you will not have any problems regarding the compatibility of the credit card with the application.
How much does it cost and how to personalize the Starbucks gift card?
Ever since Starbucks came up with the idea of gift cards, any opportunity is a good one to use them. These cards can be purchased through the app’s official website, just log in, select the ‘Gift Cards’ option.
There you will have the option to personalize it with a note or a name and when it is ready you can send it via email or through a social network. If you are going to send it by email, make sure that it does not go to the spam folder, but directly to the main folder.
The price of the gift cards will vary depending on the degree of consumption, you can get prices ranging from $ 5 to $ 100. When deciding the price you just pay it using your credit card, send it to whoever you want to give it and then this user will have to go to the Starbucks establishments to redeem it.
Where to get and how to add in the Starbucks card application?
There are several ways to get a Starbucks gift card, one of them is to buy it directly from the store from their website. You can select the amount you prefer and you will only have to associate it to your credit card, if you want to reuse it, so that it will be automatically recharged. In case you want to give it as a gift then the person will consume it but will not be able to recharge it later.
Another way to get a Starbucks gift card is to wait for the same coffee chain to reward your loyalty as a client and send you the card via email. This is something quite common to happen, however, you have to be attentive to your email as the message may arrive and fall directly into the Spam folder.
