Starbucks® Rewards is one way in which Starbucks endeavors to reward and thank loyal customers for patronising Starbucks business. To enroll in Starbucks® Rewards and receive programme benefits, you will first need to create an account at www.starbucks.com.cy and then activate and register at least one Starbucks Card to your account. “Activation” means that the Starbucks Card has a minimum of €5 loaded onto it. Starbucks Cards may be activated at participating Starbucks stores (i.e. Starbucks stores operating in airports do not support the programme). You can register any activated Starbucks Card to your account at www.starbucks.com.cy/card.
All of your Starbucks Cards can be activated and registered for use in Starbucks® Rewards. Starbucks® Rewards benefits are determined based on the “payment amount” you make and the number of “Stars” that you earn through your payment amounts. A “payment amount” for purposes of Starbucks® Rewards means each time you use your activated, registered Starbucks Card to pay for a transaction at a participating Starbucks store in Cyprus you will receive one Star for each 50 (fifty) cents spent. You can use any Starbucks Card registered to your Starbucks.com.cy account to earn Stars for your amount spent. The programme is valid only for purchases via a registered Starbucks Card at Starbucks stores in Cyprus and not for purchases via delivery platforms.
There is one (1) way to enroll in Starbucks® Rewards and begin accumulating Stars. You will need a Starbucks Card:
(1) If you have a physical Starbucks Card, visit www.starbucks.com.cy. Follow the prompts to create an account and register at least one (1) physical Starbucks Card. The minimum balance required to register a physical Starbucks Card is €5.
The registration process may require that you provide the following information: username, password, email address (required in order to receive all eligible Rewards), Starbucks Card number, and card security code (CSC), birthday, name, and marketing preferences. All of your Starbucks Cards can be activated and registered for use in Starbucks® Rewards, but you may only have one (1) account that is personal to you.
There are two levels of benefits in Starbucks® Rewards depending on the number of Stars that you accumulate in your account. By creating an account, and activating and registering a Starbucks Card, you will be automatically enrolled in Starbucks® Rewards at the Green Level. Earn at least five hundred (500) Stars within the twelve-month period following your enrolment date and you will proceed to the Gold Level.
To maintain Gold Level benefits, you must earn at least five hundred (500) new Stars during the 12-month period following the date you reached the Gold Level.
Opening an account and activating and registering your Starbucks Card automatically enters you into the “Green Level” of Starbucks® Rewards and entitles you to receive:
The ability to earn free drinks or snacks:
Once you have entered the Green Level, for every one hundred and twenty stars (120) you earn you will receive a free drink or snack* of your choice at any participating Starbucks store in Cyprus. Your Free Drink or Snack Reward will be automatically loaded onto your account and will be available to you. You must present your registered Starbucks Card to the barista at any Starbucks participating store in Cyprus in order to receive your Free Drink or Snack Reward. If you have provided Starbucks with a current, valid email address, you will receive a reminder email from Starbucks after earning your 120th Star indicating that your Free Drink or Snack Reward is available to you. You can also view and track your available Free Drink or Snacks Rewards on starbucks.com.cy/card. You will receive only one (1) Free Drink Reward regardless of the number of Starbucks Cards that you have registered to your account. The first seven (7) days from your registration to the Programme, you will receive double Stars for your purchased via the Starbucks Card.
News and Offers: News and offers will be distributed by email only, so you must opt-in to receive promotional and marketing emails from Starbucks and provide a valid email address in order to receive them.
