How do I scan a Starbucks gift card on my iPhone?

Answered by Jeremy Urbaniak

To scan a Starbucks gift card on your iPhone, follow these step-by-step instructions:

1. Start by making sure you have the Starbucks mobile app installed on your iPhone. If you don’t have it yet, you can download it for free from the App Store.

2. Once you have the app installed, open it up and sign in to your Starbucks account. If you don’t have an account yet, you can create one easily within the app.

3. After signing in, you will see a navigation bar at the bottom of the screen. Tap on the “Cards” section, which is represented by a gift card icon.

4. In the Cards section, you will see a button that says “Add card” at the top. Tap on this button to proceed.

5. This will open up a new card dialogue. On this page, you will need to enter the gift card number and the eight-digit code. The gift card number is typically found on the back of the physical card, while the eight-digit code is usually located underneath a scratch-off panel.

6. Carefully enter the gift card number and the eight-digit code into the appropriate fields on the screen. Take your time to ensure that you’ve entered the correct information to avoid any errors.

7. Once you’ve entered the gift card details, tap on the “Add” button to add the card to your Starbucks app. The app will then verify the card information and add the balance to your account.

8. After successfully adding the gift card, you can now use it to make purchases at Starbucks stores. To do this, simply open the Starbucks app, go to the Cards section, and tap on the card you want to use. The app will display a barcode that the barista can scan at the register to deduct the purchase amount from your gift card balance.

9. Additionally, you can also reload your gift card within the app, view your transaction history, and manage other settings related to your Starbucks cards.

By following these steps, you’ll be able to easily scan and use your Starbucks gift card on your iPhone using the Starbucks mobile app. Enjoy your coffee and treats!
