Listen, we all want free Starbucks every day, am I right? But not we don't always have the 200 Starbucks Rewards points racked up for a free handcrafted beverage. That’s why I'm tracking all the current Starbucks offers and discounts, including all the major Starbucks deals happening in 2024.

For example, today, May 17, Starbucks Rewards members will get half off ALL DRINKS from noon - 6 p.m. local time. Activate the offer in your rewards app now so you can get this discount on your drink tomorrow afternoon.

Starbucks Offers and Promotions for May

Here's a look at what we expect to see at Starbucks this month.

Starbucks Promotions May 2024

Enjoy 50% off your favorite drink from noon to 6 p.m. today (and every Friday in May during Starbucks Half-off days).


This is a pretty fantastic deal. I typically only see deals up to 50% off when they have BOGO free drinks. But I love this deal because you don't have to purchase multiple drinks.

So even if you're hanging solo, you can still get half off your Starbucks order today from noon - 6 p.m.

Starbucks half off drink offers happen every Friday through the entire month of May.

Upcoming half off Starbucks Fridays:

  • May 17, 2024 (Today!)

  • May 24, 2024

  • May 31, 2024

Starbucks BOGO Events


Every once in a while, you’ll see an offer in your Starbucks app for Starbucks BOGO drinks. This offer most often runs on Thursdays or weekends and with any purchase of a handcrafted beverage, you get another on the house from noon - 6 p.m. 

Here are the BOGO events coming up in May.

  • Sunday, May 12, 2024 (Mother's Day)

  • Wednesday, May 29, 2024

Starbucks Double and Triple Star Days


These Starbucks Double and Triple Star Days happen sporadically throughout the year. You earn double points on all your Starbucks purchases, helping you reach your free Starbucks goals more quickly. 

The next Double Star Weekend is predicted for May 25 - 26. Be sure to check your app on Friday, May 24 and activate the offer so you're all set to earn your Stars over the weekend.

Starbucks Star Days in May 2024:

  • May 8: Triple Star Day

  • May 25 - 26: Double Star Weekend (Predicted)

Starbucks Bonus Star Challenges

Starbucks also releases a sets of tasks to complete with a prize of free bonus Stars. Each account gets a different set of tasks, usually netting you 50 – 75 bonus Stars upon completion.

Check your app every Monday in May for a new account-specific offer!

Ways to Earn Bonus Stars

Here are a few examples of potential challenges you’ll see in your Starbucks Rewards app. Compete the challenges in the allotted amount of time and get Bonus Star rewards.

  • Order three times within a week (50 – 75 Bonus Stars)

  • Order a Starbucks fall pastry and a drink (75 Bonus Stars)

  • Order twice within a three-day period (50 Bonus Stars)

Birthday Rewards

Make sure to enter your birthday when you sign up for Starbucks Rewards. The Starbucks birthday drink reward is a free handcrafted drink (reg. $5.95), bottled beverage (reg. $4.95), or food item (reg. $7.25) on your birthday. It’s one of the best Starbucks Rewards perks.

Starbucks Rewards

Most all Starbucks offers are for Starbucks Rewards members who have an active account in the Starbucks app. But what does being a member of the Starbucks Rewards Program actually get you? Unfortunately, not as much as it used to. In February 2023, the coffee chain updated its rewards program requiring more Stars for certain purchases. Coffee — which was a 50 Star item — became worth 100 Stars. That being said, this is still a very worthwhile loyalty program if you are a Starbucks fan.

You earn two Stars for every $1 spent when you add a Starbucks gift card to your Rewards account and use it to pay. Or get one Star for every $1 spent when you pay with cash or credit, using the “Scan Only” feature in the app.

Keep in mind you earn these Stars with half the amount spent when you pay with a Starbucks Card (earning you two Stars per dollar spent).

Starbucks Offers FAQ

Does Starbucks still do $3 Thursdays?

I have not seen a Starbucks $3 Thursday since Thursday, Jan. 25. There have been no announcements for another $3 Thursday in the immediate future.

When can I get free Starbucks?

You’ll get Starbucks free coffee when you hit 100 Stars in the Starbucks Rewards app. Or hit 200 Stars to earn a free Starbucks handcrafted beverage.

Starbucks BOGO free events are also a prime time to score a free drink. They typically happen on Thursdays or weekends from noon - 6 p.m.

Does Starbucks offer discounts?

Yes. I frequently see discounts offered for rewards members in the Starbucks app. The offers are usually personalized and customers who visit Starbucks less frequently tend to get the better offers (as a strategy to get you back in the store).

I’ve recently seen offers for 40% off your purchase, $2 - $4 off your order, and grande drinks for $4.
