Peets AM/PM Promo on Cold Brew

A new Peeknik Rewards promotion has been activated in the Peets Rewards app (aka Peetnik Rewards) until the close of business on Sunday 10/22/17. This offer requires two separate visits and two separate purchases during the same time. First, you must needs buy any beverage before 10am local time. Then, you can visit at any time after 12pm local time, and get 50% off Cold Brew. The AM beverage can be anything, but the PM must needs be a cold brew.

Since Cold Brew is on the expensive side compared to “normal” coffee, this is a good opportunity to get some without breaking the bank. Assuming you need a morning coffee.

Starbucks Rewards (Oct 17-23): 100 Bonus Stars with Trio purchase

Starbucks is back with another “Join the Challenge” type of a Rewards promotion for its members. As with previous “Join” offers, you must first activate the offer on your account using the link in their email or the appropriate place in the Starbucks app (not all offers are shown in the app though).

This promotion runs from October 17-23 in 2017, and get you a nice 100 Bonus (80% towards a full reward) when you buy one item EACH from each of the following categories:

  • any Teavana tea
  • any breakfast sandwich (check their menu if you are not sure which ones qualify as “breakfast”)
  • any latte

You must buy one of each, but not in the same transaction. They can be purchased on different days during the promotional period. You’ll only receive one 100 Bonus regardless of how many you buy; eg, if you buy three of each, you’ll still receive 100 bonus stars, not 300.

The Starbucks Rewards Bingo has been fixed!

Starbucks had a false start a couple of days ago with a broken Rewards Bingo challenge. But as of the time of writing, they have fixed it! This is an opt-in promotion, you must activate it by following the prompts in their email or app. You need a Starbucks Rewards account and you use your Starbucks login to connect the Bingo to your Rewards activity.

You can find all the details at the Bingo page.

The promotion runs between October 12 until November 1st in 2017 at participating Starbucks stores.

This is a return of a similar promotion they run a few months ago. If you are a frequent Starbucks visitor, it’s easy to pile up the bonus stars. You can earn a maximum of 350 bonus stars. That’s almost three FULL rewards, worth over $20 in foods or drinks if you redeem your rewards for the most expensive items (eg the $8 new salad trays or fancy drinks).

Bonus Stars for Starbucks Visit Streaks

If you are participating in the Starbucks Rewards program, and go there almost every day, you may be interested in a new “Visit Streak” promotion. You earn bonus stars if you visit on consecutive days during the October 10-16 in 2017 period. If you visit every day, you get the maximum 100 Bonus Stars. If you visit fewer days in a row, you get less as outlined in the screenshot below:

So the way the promotion is structured, you can’t miss Thursday, Friday and Saturday, because they are in the middle of the promotion, and you can’t have a 5-day streak without all three of those days.

As usual, make sure you activate the offer first! This is not an automatic offer!

Oct 3-9: 30 Bonus Stars on 3 Iced Tea purchases (SBUX Rewards)

If you are a Starbucks Rewards member, this is an easy way to scoop up 30 Bonus Stars. All you have to do is buy three iced teas of any kind at Starbucks between October 3-9 in 2017. This too is a promotion that needs to be activated first. Check the Starbucks app or your registered email account to activate it first!

If you don’t activate it, you won’t get the bonus stars!

Peetnik Rewards: Double Points on Pumpkin

National Coffee Day weekend continues at Peet’s Coffee with double points on their two Pumpkin beverages when purchased using the Peets rewards program. A typical purchase is one point (regardless of amount or number of items). Fifteen points equal one free beverage of your choice (any drink, any size).

Assuming you spend your free drink reward on the largest and most expensive drink you like, with extras and fix-ins and all, let’s say a $6 drink, that means one point is worth around 40c in rewards. ($6 divided by 15). So double points means you get an extra 40c 🙂

The promotion runs October 1-8 in 2017.

Another Starbucks After 2PM Dash (YMMV)

This is another YMMV promotion. If you are a member of the Starbucks rewards program, check your email or the official Starbucks app for a new “must activate first” promotion. It’s the return of the “After 2pm” (local time) Dash! This promotion runs September 26 at open and ends on October 2nd in 2017 at store closing.

If you make four separate purchases, you earn 50 Bonus Stars. If you make a total of six or more, you earn a total of 100 Bonus Stars. The rewards are posted to your account in two phases. Once you get to four transactions, you’ll get the 50 bonus stars. If you make to to 6+, you’ll get another 50 bonus stars. That’s all you’ll get. The promotion does not restart or roll. In other words, if you make 6 or 60 transactions, you’ll get 100 Bonus Stars.

This Weekend, Triple Lucky’s Rewards (must add offer to account)

If you were planning a big grocery shopping spree for the next few days, note that if you are participating in Lucky Rewards, they are offering triple points for purchases made on Saturday and Sunday September 23 and 24 in 2017!

To get the bonus points, you must manually add the offer to your account, either using the Lucky Rewards website, or their mobile app. You won’t get a bonus unless you manually add it! If you plan to make a big purchase, that will definitely be a sizeable bonus.

Screenshot of the offer below:

And if you are going to be there, don’t forget to stock up on Ben and Jerry’s. They are running a promotion that gets you two pints for $4 total. That’s $2 per pint. You must needs buy them in multiples of two pints to get the discount.

Both offers expire Sunday night at the close of business at Lucky’s B&M stores on September 24 in 2017. Coupon synergies 🙂

Lucky Rewards Members: Get 2000 Points ($20 buying power) on $100 Gift Card purchases (select options)

Back to Lucky’s again! If you are going to go there to stock up on Ben & Jerry this weekend, or plan to shop there at any time until the close of business on Tuesday 9/26/17, they have a gift card promotion for Lucky Rewards members!

If you $100 in any combination of participating gift cards, you will receive 2000 Lucky Rewards points in your account. The buying power of 2000 points is $20 (or better). Sometimes Lucky has promotions that get you an even better deal for your points. For example, until 9/26/17, 1800 points get you a $20 off discount on your next Lucky’s transaction. What I’m trying to say is that you may get a better than 20% off virtual round-about discount if the offers work for you.

There are some solid gift card options here, including Macy’s, Starbucks, Google PLAY (rarely discounted on their own), Lowe’s, Kohls, and more!

Peets Rewards: Triple Points on $10+ purchases

If you are participating in the Peet’s Rewards program and you like to buy coffee beans or ground coffee or boxed tea at their local B&M stores, or like to buy drinks for friends and family, good until 9/24/17, they are running a new promotion that gets you Triple Points every time you make a purchase of $10+ during the promotional period.

With regular rewards, 15 points (15 separate purchases) translate to any FREE handcrafted drink of your choice, any size, any combination. With this triple rewards offer, only five separate purchases (over $10+) can get you any free drink of your choice.

So if you were planning to buy two pounds of coffee and a box of loose leaf tea, instead of buying them all together, space them out during multiple visits, so each order is $10+ 🙂

Their new fall items should also be trickling in. Remember, you can get to $10+ with any combination of drinks, food, coffee cups, coffee beans, etc. Just make sure you pay for all of them in one transaction 🙂

Peetnik Rewards: Double Points on Cold Brew until 9/17/17 PM

The Peets Rewards program is establishing a pattern of frequent and diverse type of promotions. The latest promotion, running until the close of business on Sunday 9/17/17 gets you double points on cold brew purchases. This particular promotion is good on either hand-crafted cold brew drinks (eg black tie or cold brew fog), or any of the bottled (ready-made) cold brews.

Unlike previous offers, this particular promotion can be used as many times as you like during this promotional period, so if you are a fan of Cold Brews, drink away 🙂

If you have the Peetniks app installed, and you haven’t turned off notifications, your phone should be informing you of these. Or if you hate Notifications, you can find the promotions in the “Inbox” of the app:

Farberware Rewards returning at Lucky Stores

If you are a regular shopper at Lucky’s and you make $10+ purchases on most visits, and you like Farberware, you may be thrilled to learn that the “Earn Free Farberware” promotion has returned and it’s running until February 6 in 2018, so you have plenty of time (almost five months from today).

You earn one Stamp every $10 spent there. If your purchase is under $10, you earn nothing. They also run promotions at times for more stamps or bonus stamps when purchasing specific products. You have until 2/20/2018 to redeem your stamps for free Farberware products. If you don’t redeem them, they expire.

You have to enter your phone number at checkout when you shop! If you are a Lucky Rewards member, you earn e-stamps, so you don’t have to deal with actual little stamps (which can be easy to lose or misplace). If you are not a rewards member, you’ll get physical stamps.
