Starbucks Tiered Dashes

Naughty, naughty Starbucks. The popular coffee brand knows how to create caffeine addicted customers. While Starbucks has had its Star Dashes since 2012, they’ve gotten to be experts at tailoring the dashes. For the past few dashes, the goals have differed, assumedly based on your visits and buying habits.

Don’t go very often? Starbucks knows and gives you the creampuff dashes like buying four drinks to receive $5 in credit. Easy right? But once the coffee from those four drinks infuses in your system, you’re on your way to caffeine addiction. All to get back $5, and you know that $5 is just going to feed your addiction. For us already addicted, Starbucks throws us a pittance with $5 after 10 transactions or $10 after 16 stars.


For this 2013 holiday season, what kind of dash offers have you received? I’ve heard of:

  • 4 for $5, 6 for $10
  • 5 for $5, 8 for $10
  • 7 for $5, 10 for $10
  • 10 for $5, 16 for $10

    Yeah, I don’t think I’m going to complete this dash. I checked and I have the same dash marks as you (10 for $5 & 16 for $10). Not saying it’s impossible as I could theoretically average 1 drink a day starting today. However, with all the holiday and family stuff going on this week/end–all that will get in the way of prime caffeination time.
