In the T&Cs, there are a limited number of $10 bonuses, and it doesn't look like you'll know if you're getting the bonus when you spend the $10. No real downside to trying it, I guess.
"If you use Visa Checkout and load $10+ during the Promotion Period to complete steps above and meet these promotional offer requirements, you may receive a Bonus Load. YOU ARE NOT GUARANTEED TO RECEIVE A BONUS LOAD. SUPPLIES ARE LIMITED. Qualifying customers will see the $10 Bonus Load in the form of an emailed Starbucks eGift card within 5 days."
Instructions are confusing. Step 1 is to visit the website (starbucks.com/visacheckout) but then Step 2 is to go to your app to use Visa Checkout using Visa Checkout on the app merely adds a credit card to your app. So it doesn't appear any different that if you had added the credit card directly to your starbucks account.

Yes. I am also confused by this.
If you go to starbucks.com right now, you can delete all the credit cards on your app. Then at 9 pacific, go in and add one via Visa Checkout on the app (?) and do the reload? I guess?
EDIT: AHA! Maybe you reload on the site and not the app. You just use it once it's loaded with the app. Is that right?
NEXT EDIT: No... step 2: Second, use the Starbucks app to load a minimum $10 onto your Starbucks Card using Visa Checkout as your payment method.
How to Participate: Take the following steps during the Promotion Period to receive a Bonus Load:
First, visit starbucks.com/visacheckout. Second, use the Starbucks app to load a minimum $10 onto your Starbucks Card using Visa Checkout as your payment method. You are only eligible to receive one Bonus Load. You will receive a $10 Starbucks eGift Card to the email address associated with your Starbucks account within 5 business days of the load.
Problem is, the mentioned link says "We're sorry, we can't find the page you're looking for"
That PSL Fan Pass thing looks shady as hell. pslfanpass.com is not registered by Starbucks (their real domain is registered by their IT contractor, CSC), and their whois information shows that somebody anonymously registered it through GoDaddy.
You may just look like an idiot presenting this at the counter. But it could be fun to watch... YMMV.
MisterEd said: Is this only for new people (new email) using app for the first time or for existing customers as well? I added $10 but it seems only to be for new accounts (although it doesn't explicitly say that). Existing customers too.
Just wanted to update regarding my experience with Groupon bought Starbucks GCs:
I bought multiple GCs from this deal but only loaded one on my SB account at the time of this deal.
Today when I tried to load the website says there are no funds under that GC?
This happened with four of such GCs.
I had a similar experience with a Groupon bought Starbucks GC. At that time I contacted Groupon but they just passed the buck to Starbucks and I let it go since it was only $5 ($10) but this time $20 ($40) are at stake. What is my recourse?
