How to Register Your Starbucks Gift Card

Updated March 23, 2017

There are many incentives available to customers who register their Starbucks gift card. When you register your card, you can earn rewards on your transactions, manage and view your account history online and protect your balance if your card is ever lost or stolen. The card can also be set up to auto-reload when the balance falls below a specified amount. The process of registering online only takes a few minutes.

Log onto Starbucks' website. Select the "Register A Card" link.

Enter your 16-digit card number in the section titled "Card Number." This number can be located on the front of the gift card.

Flip the gift card over and scratch off the coating on the back of your card. This will reveal your CSC (Card Security Code). Enter your eight digit number into the space labelled "Security Code." Click the "Verify Card."

Sign into your account to complete registering your card by entering your username and password into the appropriate fields. If you don't have an account you will need to create one by selecting the "Create Account" link.


Contact Starbucks' customer service department at 800-782-7282 if you have any questions or concerns.
