What are the new ways to pay and earn Stars with Starbucks Rewards and the Starbucks app? How do I pay with cash, credit/debit, or mobile wallets and earn Stars?

Earning Stars when Members pay with cash, credit/debit cards, or mobile wallets at participating stores is easy! Just click on “Scan” from the home screen of the Starbucks app if you’re paying in-store. Then, choose “Scan Only,” scan the QR code and pay with cash or credit/debit cards and mobile wallets outside of the Starbucks app. 

Or, choose “Scan & Pay” and link any credit/debit card or PayPal account, swipe to choose the payment method you want to use, then scan the QR code to pay and earn Stars in one seamless step! 

For ordering ahead, just link the credit/debit card or your PayPal account you want to use and choose that option to pay at checkout in the app. If you haven’t joined Starbucks Rewards yet, all you need is the app, your name, email, and a password to get started.
