It’s back! Every now and then we’d see a Groupon offer featuring Starbucks. Some of them are public offers, some are targeted or invite only. Thanks to my travel buddy, Stephen S. for sharing this deal with me.

The last time this was offered, I checked my email. None for me. But my wife got the offer bought the gift card.

It does look like it’s available on the Groupon site directly – see also $5 for $10 E-Gift Card at Starbucks although some users were reporting that they were not targeted after they signed in to their Groupon account.

Make the deal sweeter

  • Use your points-earning or miles-earning credit card when making the purchase.
    • Earn 5x via your Chase Ink that earn 5x from office supply stores. You can buy your gift cards online at Staples or you can go to a Staples store directly (YMMV).
  • Don’t forget to check cash back portals.Some of them have restrictions when purchasing gift cards from portals such as Ebates, so make sure you read the terms and conditions

These are just a few ways to stretch your savings when buying this Groupon from Starbucks. One last tip, check your SPAM folder, you never know, you might have been targeted and just didn’t know it.

So, were you targeted? Let me know if you got this offer.
