Starbucks has two types of cards available to treat yourself and the coffee lover on your shopping list. The first is a gift card that can be used at Starbucks stores near you or at Starbucks’ online store. The second is the Starbucks Duetto Visa which is not only accepted at Starbucks, but anywhere Visa is accepted.
The Starbucks card can be purchased at your local Starbucks or online at starbucks.com. When ordering online, choose from a pre-designed card or design your own. Cards are available in $15, $25, $50, and $100 values. For an extra $4, you can opt to add a personalized greeting card to give with your gift card. You can ship the card to yourself or your recipient.
The gift card can be used for anything sold in Starbucks stores or online at StarbucksStore.com. The online store sells a variety of Starbucks coffee blends, tazo teas, gift packages, and coffee making equipment.
Employers can purchase the Starbucks Gift Card as a thank you to their employees. It can be customized with the company logo and a message to employees. A minimum of 15 cards is required for corporate orders; your order usually ships within one business day.
Gift cards are re-loadable. You can add money in any amount from $5-$100. You can reload your own card, have the recipient take care of it themselves, or reload someone’s card for them.
On your first purchase with the Duetto Visa, you automatically get $25 back. For each purchase you make in the future, you get 1% back in Duetto Dollars, which is loaded directly on to your card. When you apply, $5 is automatically donated to the Local Initiatives Support Corporation. Like a Starbucks gift card, the Duetto Visa is also re-loadable.
When you or someone you care about receives a Starbucks card, you should make sure to register the card. Registering your card ensures the value will be protected against theft or loss of your card. If this happens, all you have to do is call a customer service number and you will be sent a replacement with the same amount of money that was on it when you lost it. You also become eligible for exclusive Starbucks promotions and offers and may even receive surprise gifts.
With all the rewards and unlimited uses, the Starbucks gift card or Duetto Visa is a great way for the coffee lover in your life to enjoy famous Starbucks blends all year around.
