I am not able to find this on Groupon. What city did you us for your search?
poor promo can not find the deal
Found the deal but it says valid within the US only. Has anyone in Canada tried to use the voucher and it was a success? Not willing to risk the money nor the
I have bought them in the past when they had promos, they work just fine here. I got a friend to send me a US starbucks card so I have a physical one and I load them onto there
The only issue is that the exchange would be done at the rate the day you use it, not what you bought it at so you can lose out that way, but it would only be a few cents on the dollar
not in my city
it says valid for US only, so i will pass
This would be a great deal if the website was “smartyankee.com”
To get to this deal through the search, you can type in “starbucks” in their search and type in a U.S. state like “New York” in the location box to the right.
Oh, here is a link I was able to get to the deal by:
But can I load US dollars onto my CDN card>?
Leanne, no you would have to use it as a separate card (you can print the card or use it on the app)
Thank you, Amy for the additional instructions. It says “Valid within the US only.” Has this been tested to confirm that it works here?
i was able to buy this and add it to my starbucks app- however it will not let me merge the balance with my other card on the app. dont think there will be any issue with actually redeeming the money, just need to keep the card separate from your others,
I bought one too and added it to my app. 🙂
Thanks for confirming that it works!
I just purchased one using LA, CA as my “city”, and then tried to load it onto my Starbucks app…WILL NOT TRANSFER US CURRENCY ONTO A CANADIAN CARD. I printed out the certificate, so I’ll use it on my trip to Arizona this week. Not worth the hassle!
beebee, it wont transfer but you can set up a second US card in the app
Just got one thanks. I already have a US card on my app from getting Starbucks GCs from Swagbucks
@beebee, Even though the card is USD, you can use in Canadian stores. We can use our Canadian cards and app in the US. I just registered the USD virtual giftcard to my app. It says I have $10.49… I assume it quoting the equivalent CAD value.
Much thanks for posting this great deal or I would have missed out for sure! It’s like free money, transferred funds easily to a plastic card I have set up and reserved for USD funds.
I have purchased this before, and have also purchased the above offer, you have to print out the offer and present yourself to any starbucks, Canada or USA. I purchased the above offer and used it today, with no problems in Montreal!
