In this guide, we’ll walk you through the steps to add a Starbucks gift card to the Starbucks app on your iPhone or Android device. We’ll also show you how to transfer the card balance to another Starbucks card. By adding your gift card to the app, you can conveniently access it without the need for an extra physical card or worrying about the remaining balance. Plus, if you have Apple Pay, using the linked card becomes even more effortless.
Adding a Gift Card to the Starbucks App
To begin, make sure you have a Starbucks account, a gift card, and the Starbucks app installed on your iPhone or Android device. Assuming you already have a primary Starbucks card linked to your account, which may or may not have any remaining balance, follow these simple steps:
Launch the Starbucks app and sign in if you haven’t already. Once you’re on the app’s main screen, you should see a section dedicated to your existing card(s), displaying your balance and other relevant details. Look for a small plus sign located beneath the card information. Note that the appearance of your screen may vary due to potential app updates.
If you’re not already on the main cards screen, tap on the “Cards” section at the bottom of the screen to navigate to it. From there, select “Add card.” On the subsequent page, enter the gift card number and the eight-digit code. Finally, tap “Add card” to successfully link the gift card to your Starbucks app.
In case you can’t locate the “Cards” section, you can alternatively enter the card information by selecting the “Gift” tab.
Once you’ve completed these steps, you’ll return to your main cards screen. At this point, you can either choose to maintain multiple cards with separate balances or transfer the gift card balance to another card. To transfer the balance, follow these additional steps:
Tap on “Details” next to the card you want to transfer from. Then, select “Transfer balance.”
Choose the card you wish to transfer the balance to and tap “Transfer.”
If you decide to transfer the balance to your primary card, you can remove the now-empty card by tapping on “Details” again, followed by the “x” symbol on the card. Confirm the removal by tapping on “Remove card.”
Don’t forget that you can also add your gift card to the Wallet app on iPhone or a compatible wallet app on your Android device, depending on the Android version and device you own.
In addition to adding a gift card to the Starbucks app, there are a few other useful things you can do:
- Purchase Starbucks gift cards online directly from Starbucks or Amazon.
- Use the Starbucks app to send a gift to one of your contacts.
Remember to keep an eye out for Starbucks gift card deals or special promotions on Amazon if you’re looking to save some money.
Now that you know how to link your Starbucks gift card to the app and make payments with your phone, you can enjoy the convenience of having your card digitally accessible whenever you need it. Say goodbye to carrying physical cards and always stay in the know about your remaining balance. Happy coffee-drinking!
