Buy a $20 Starbucks Gift Card For $13 @ Groupon!

0Buy a $20 Starbucks Gift Card For $13 @ Groupon!**BUMP!!! This deal is on again and it sells out quick – but some of the details have changed!**

Quick post! Groupon has brought back their deal for Starbucks eGift cards. If you buy a $10 USD Starbucks gift card, you’ll receive a $15 USD one! You can’t load it right to your Starbucks card though since it is a US deal, you must print out the eGift Card and use that to either buy a Starbucks Gift Card or use it to purchase your desired items from Starbucks.

I have called two different Starbucks Canada locations to confirm that you can in fact use this voucher at Canadian locations. While this is from the US Groupon website, you can print the emailed voucher and bring it into your local Starbucks to use as is or convert it into a gift card. You cannot upload the amount to your Starbucks card via email. The Groupon site says that there is a limited quantity available. If you want one of these Starbucks eGift cards, don’t wait until later in case they sell out. There have been over a hundred thousand Starbucks gift cards bought already at the time of writing this post.

This is always a super-popular deal from Groupon, and they usually sell tens of thousands of these deals. It’s handy because everyone knows Starbucks, and most people probably live pretty close to a Starbucks location, and these Groupons can be used anywhere. I’ve bought it many times in the past, very useful for some cheap hot drinks!

You will receive a digital voucher, so you don’t have to worry about any shipping or handling fees for this purchase. You can use this offer to try one of their new Holiday beverages, especially with the BOGO offer we blogged about recently. The new Holiday beverages include the Chestnut Praline Latte, Peppermint Mocha, and more. You can use it all in one shot or spread it out for multiple visits to Starbucks Canada.

Here is a comment from one of our Moosers, which may help you with how to use this voucher:

You should be able to add it to your canadian account – you just cannot have 2 different currencies on the same Starbucks card. If you add another card to your account and then transfer the USD balance to that empty card it should work fine. then you should be able to convert the USD to CAD using the app – if you have issues call Starbucks and they will do it over the phone.

I have never personally used that method, but for a discount like this it is definitely worth a shot. Keep in mind that the prices are USD – so the promo says you are getting a $15 gift card for just $10, but in all actuality you are paying $13.28 CDN for a $19.93 CDN gift card. Make sense?

    I just bought this but was unable to add it to my Canadian account because it is valid in the US only :( Hopefully Groupon will refund my purchase!

  12. Deb says:

  13. Sue says:

    Worked for me just now (5:36pm PST)

  14. Sue says:

    US one is sold out, Canadian one still up.

  15. joy says:

    They keep reposting more after they are sold out so keep checking back. I’ve seen it twice this weekend posted again after it had been listed as sold out.

  16. Tiggrr says:

    I live near the Canada/US border and use my Starbucks card on either side. They have never told me I needed 1 card for each currency.

  17. Beth Guimond says:

    Why are these comments from June when this was posted in December 2015?
    Also, it says its valid in US only…

    • Brooke Wilson says:

      Hi Beth! I bumped the post when the offer became available again. You will be charged the ~$13 CDN and you will get ~$20 CDN towards Starbucks, as the post mentions. So it definitely is still a deal :)

  18. Beth Guimond says:

    sorry just read the actual post (sigh)…I have to wonder if this is a deal with the way the dollar is right now though.

  19. Julie says:

    This worked for me! Just added it online as a new card, couldn’t transfer balance. See in app it converted to $20.77 Canadian dollars.
