If you are a Starbucks fan or have a Starbucks fan you would like to buy a gift for, currently Visa Checkout has a promotion with Starbucks and when you load $10 on to your Starbucks card using the Starbucks app. and pay using Visa Checkout, you will receive a free $10 e-gift card to Starbucks. I was able to add $10 yesterday and still received the promotion today so there are still offers available. Even though the title is Visa Checkout, you can use other credit cards besides a Visa for this promotion. Also, Starbucks will allow you to use your Starbucks cards and let you buy smaller denominations of gift cards at Starbucks locations. This is a great idea to turn your $10 into two $10 gifts for someone once you receive your e-gift from Visa Checkout. The details of this promotion can be found here: Starbucks Promotion with Visa Checkout. I am copying and pasting the information from the website:
