Peetnik Rewards: Free Bakery Item + Drip Coffee with 1 LB of Coffee at Peet’s B&M

Running in parallel with the $10+ offer is another Peetnik Rewards offer running until 12/31/17 as well for members of the Rewards program. If you make a purchase of one pound of coffee at their brick and mortar stores, you get a free bakery item and a free small drip coffee or tea. The offer is automatically loaded in your Peetnik Rewards program.

Spend 1400+ Plenti Points at Exxon, Get 300 Back

This is a great deal if you have a car! If you refill your car at an Exxon-Mobil gas station and spend at least 1400 Plenti Points ($14 equivalent) to pay for your gas refill, you will earn 300 Plenti points back. You have until 12/31/17 to do this. FIRST though you must activate the offer in your Plenti account using their website or app.

This is an awesome offer, assuming you stay close to a $14 refill, eg $15, it’s like getting 20% back! If you don’t have enough points now, Rite Aid is running a lot of weekly gift card Plenti point promotions, so that’s an easy way to stock up on Plenti points. There are many of 500 Plenti points on $25 gift card offers!

Starbucks for Life return until January 8 in 2018

The annual “Starbucks for Life” promotion is back as every holiday season, running at Starbucks until January 8 in 2018. You have to first manually accept the terms of the offer and connect it to your Starbucks account. This promotion gets you plays and rewards based on your purchases and various challenges you complete (eg, buy X items on Y days).

The big rewards are the “Starbucks for Life” rewards, but that’s only for a few people. More realistically, you can earn rewards and bonus stars. These are more attainable and practical rewards instead 🙂

December 2017: Earn Double Peetnik Reward points on $10+ orders

For the whole calendar month of December in 2017, if you are participating in the Peet’s Rewards program (Peetniks), every time you make a purchase of $10+ (before taxes), you earn double rewards points. You can use this offer as many times as you like during the month. You have to be a member of their Rewards program (obviously) which is free to join.

Strategically, you can now split larger purchases into parts. So instead of buying two pounds of coffee during one visit, buy one pound on two separate visits 🙂

Starbucks B&M (21-27): 60 Bonus Starts on $20+ purchases

At Starbucks brick and mortar stores, between November 21-27 in 2017, if you make a single transaction purchase of $20+, you will receive 60 Bonus Stars. 60 bonus stars are 48% towards a reward. You will also receive the standard bonus stars on the purchase amount (40+ regular stars on a $20+ purchase) so you are almost getting a full reward with this purchase.

Strategically this is a good way to stock up on coffee and tea and gifts and coffee mugs and such. Comparing this with “Double Stars”, purchases of $30+ would benefit from Double Stars over this. For purchases under $30, this offer wins.

Note that the $20 minimum must be reached BEFORE taxes and other mandatory local or federal fees (eg CRV) and tips.

Triple Rewards points on Holiday Baked Goods at Peets

Monday is the day new offers come out for Peet’s Rewards members (aka Peetniks). This week’s offer ends on Thanksgiving (10/23/17) instead of Sunday night. You get three reward points (instead of the usual one) when you make a purchase that includes one of the holiday season bakery items (baked goods). If you are not sure what qualifies, pay attention to the labels and pictures, or *gasp* ask the employees there 🙂

You can use this offer as many times as you like during the promotional period. Regular bakery items are NOT eligible.

  1. you have to be a member of the Lucky’s Rewards program (free to join)
  2. logon to the Rewards website or the Luckys app

Hot Deal Alert: Load $20 or more in Starbucks App using Chase Pay, Get 300 Bonus Rewards Points

This is a massively epic Starbucks Reward member promotion! This showed up in the Starbucks Android app earlier today while I was in-store. If you load $20 or more using the Starbucks app, and pay for it using Chase Pay, you will receive 300 bonus Starbucks rewards points (stars).

300 stars translate to two full rewards and an extra 50 points (40% towards a reward). If you use the rewards to buy the most expensive items you like, or the largest most loaded drinks they have, you are essentially getting about $20 worth of food and drinks by redeeming the rewards. It becomes a virtual BOGO 🙂


I did not babysit the offer, I was driving around and running errands, but 1.5 hours after the $20+ load with Chase Pay I checked my Starbucks Rewards History and there they were 300 Bonus Points!

There seems to be a bug in their system because the rewards show earlier in the day, maybe they flipped the AM with the PM. You will notice your score skyrocketing and the number of Rewards increasing by 2 or 3. Here’s the screenshot of the notification:

New Starbucks Rewards After 2PM Streak Promotion

A good opportunity to try the new Starbucks Holiday menu is a new after 2pm local time promotion they pushed to customers. As usual, you must first activate the offer on the web or using their app. Once you do, you earn bonus stars depending on how many days you visit in a row after 2pm local time between November 14-20 in 2017. That’s Tuesday AM until Monday PM of next week.

Remember, this particular offer is not number of transactions, but rather number of days in a row you visit. So you have to be there every day to make the most of this. The way the promotion is structured, five days in a row gets you the most bonus bang for your buck.

Buy $60+ at the Walgreens website, Get 18,000 Rewards Points

A new “Balance Rewards” promotion is running at the Walgreens website. Good until Saturday night (11/18/17), you can get 18,000 Balance Reward points when you make a purchase of $60 or more at their website.

As usual, some exclusions apply. The offer came in an email to the Walgreens customer emailing list.

18,000 Balance Points are redeemable for $20 off a single Walgreens purchase, or you can redeem them for smaller amounts at 1:1 ratio.

Free shipping with orders of $35+ (which you’ll get since the order total for this offer is $60+). But you also have the option for “Ship to Store” if you prefer to pick up from local store(s).

Peetnik Rewards: $2 Bottled Cold Brew with Any Beverage purchase

If you want to try out the Peet’s Bottled Cold Brew coffees (any available flavor in their B&M stores) but don’t want to pay the full price, they have a promotion running now until 11/19/17 at their B&M stores that gets you any bottled cold brew for $2 AS LONG AS you also buy any other beverage in the same transaction. In other words, you buy your regular/favorite drink as usual, and add the Cold Brew to your order.

You must be a members of their free-to-join Peetnik Rewards. They have apps for Android and iOS now. Won’t likely ever get a Windows Phone app though 🙁

Walgreens: Spend $20+, Get 7000 Balance Rewards points [must activate]

If you are participating in the Walgreens Balance Rewards program, check your email or their website or your app! A new promotion via coupon (you must clip the coupon first before you can earn the bonus) offers you 7000 Bonus Balance Rewards points (that’s $7 equivalent) when you make qualifying purchases of $20+ at their website or their B&M stores!

The promotion runs November 11-17 in 2017, the usual Sunday AM to Saturday PM week that coincides with their Weekly Ad. The promotion may be in the Weekly Ad, I don’t know?

Starbucks Dash (Nov 10-12): Buy 3 Teavana Iced Teas, Get 30 Bonus Stars

Running in parallel with the Holiday drinks promotion, Starbucks Rewards members may have another offer available for them. You have to check your email or app and first activate the offer before you earn the bonus.

It’s a fairly simple and easy to do dash. You buy three Teavana Shaken Iced Teas between November 10-12 in 2017, and you get 30 bonus stars, in addition to the regular stars of the purchase amount.

Starbucks Nov 9-13 (2-5pm local time): BOGO on Holiday Drinks and Cake Pops

The Holidays are coming in faster than the speed of light! The official Holiday drinks have arrived at Starbucks stores, and between November 9-13 in 2017, between 2-5pm local time, they have a “Buy One Get One FREE” promotion on all the Holiday drinks. No coupon is needed. But both drinks must be one of the half a dozen eligible drinks under their holiday menu. Regular mocha or latte drinks are NOT eligible.

But that’s not all! Hidden below the high profile BOGO offer on the drinks, they also have a BOGO offer on the holiday peppermint Cake Pop, along with the Snowman shaped sugar cookie! They go for $2 and $3 respectively each, so with the BOGO, $2 get you two cakepops, or $3 get you two snowman sugar cookies.

Just like the drinks, only the designated holiday menu cakepop and sugar cookie is eligible. You cannot mix and match with regular menu items. You must needs buy two of the same holiday pop or cookie!

FREE Starbucks Reward (125 Stars) when you start a Spotify Premium 60-day trial

If you are participating in the Starbucks Rewards program, check your email for a new and pretty good offer! If you start a free 60-day trial of the Spotify Premium music subscription service, you will receive 125 Starbucks Rewards stars as well. That’s the equivalent of one full reward, which you can redeem at Starbucks for almost any item of any available size in the store.

The Spotify Premium free trial will convert to a $10/month subscription if you don’t cancel it before the free trial expires, so keep that in mind!
