How do I join Starbucks® Rewards? How does it work?

You can join the program by:
Downloading the Starbucks Mobile app to your Android™ or iPhone® device. Follow the prompts to create an account and register a digital or physical Starbucks Card.
Registering any physical Starbucks Card or Starbucks Card eGift by visiting Follow the prompts to create an account.
Each time you visit a participating Starbucks® store and pay for your purchase with a registered Starbucks Card or through the Starbucks Mobile app, you will earn two (2) Stars per $1 spent on the purchase. (See exclusions and other ways to earn Stars.)  As soon as you join the program, you are eligible for benefits and will start earning Stars that can be redeemed for Rewards.  See full list of member benefits.  
Baristas will not automatically know who’s a member of Starbucks® Rewards and who isn’t. To collect Stars as a member of Starbucks® Rewards, you’ll need to use your registered Starbucks Card every time you visit a Starbucks store.
