YMMV Starbucks app free shots with brewed coffee

Needed to burn 75 stars today, and after I realized that a brewed coffee was only 50 stars I went and added a shot. The shot was included in the 50 star purchase. I can only assume this is intentional.

Customs are always free no (when paying with stars) ?
You can add the lot and it'll be the stars for the main item.

The screen shots appear to be from California, so I doubt it was OPs. Apparently 50 stars buys you a lot more (than just brewed coffee) there.

Not a hot deal, or deal for that matter. But good use of the stars under the Starbucks Rewards program, so it should probably be under discussions.

The drink in my screenshot was 50 stars and pretty good – I didn't want it too sweet on purpose. I would probably reorder.

Curious.. just checked, and it seems to be a one-off (in that area it's just that store that ends in CA). Names seem to be very localized (presumably because it just reports stores near you via GPS).. not mentioning municipality or province. Hadn't notice Misto were considered "brewed coffee".. I mean, I guess they are the way SB makes them (sounds like way too much milk and pretty mild flavour with only 50% coffee) but with extra shots it might be palatable.

Yeah, tbh I never gave much attention to the name.
I normally go there I'm driving, as most of other Starbucks around (between Yonge x Dufferin/Caledonia x St Clain and 401) doesn't have parking, and this one is just next to Lowes, so plenty of space. I think they just opened one on dufferin, not far from Yorkdale mall, but with parking as well.


as for coffee misto - I didn't quite like it, but was one of the "Hacks" I think from this thread: starbucks-rewards-redemption-devaluatio ... s-2265959/ on how to "mimic" those fancy ones (which I don't like much tbh ahah) I'm a more of black coffee drinker, - So most of the time I just get a red eye...

Dunno where else to ask but I have an offer for 100 stars.

What is this item include....Any Teavana® Tea ? Does Starbucks only serve Teavana or do they have use other tea?

Thanks
