If you’re a Starbucks Rewards member, you already know the value of “Stars.” When you bring in a clean, reusable cup to your local Starbucks, you’ll get 25 additional “Stars” added to your account as well as a $0.10 discount on your drink.

 

Share a Venti Paradise drink instead of ordering two Tall drinks to save more than $2.

A Venti drink is 20 ounces, and a Tall drink is 12 oz. If you buy a Venti and ask the barista to split it between two tall cups, making two 10-ounce drinks, you’ll save around $2 and only lose two ounces each. Try this out with a friend if you want to try the Starbucks Paradise drink.

We’ve got plenty more ways to get cheap Starbucks drinks.

You’ll need 150 Stars to get a free Starbucks summer drink.

If you want to get a free Starbucks summer drink, the best way is to cash in your Starbucks Rewards Stars. By spending 150 Stars, you’ll get a free Grande Paradise Drink (regularly $4.95) and a free Venti Pineapple Passionfruit Refresher (regularly $4.95).

(And no, you’re not imagining it — Starbucks prices are going up.)

 

Get your Starbucks summer drinks with “light ice” to get more from your order.

Anytime you use less ice, you’re getting more drink — whether it’s a cup of water or the best Starbucks iced coffee. This means that if you want the most out of the Starbucks summer menu, you should always ask for your drink with light ice.
