How to Get Free Refills at Starbucks

Can you get a FREE refill at Starbucks? The answer is yes, provided you understand that there are limits and rules, and then precisely follow them.

1. Free refills only apply to coffee (hot, iced coffee, or cold brew) or tea (hot or iced).

2. Free refills apply only to brewed coffee or tea enjoyed in-café during the same visit. Once you leave, your visit has ended, and you’re no longer eligible for a complimentary refill.

3. Refills are not available in the drive-thru.

4. Use your registered Starbucks card or Starbucks app to make your initial purchase.

5. Present that same Starbucks Card or Starbucks app to get FREE refills of brewed coffee or tea. The offer does not apply to any other beverages.

6. Enjoy a coffee or tea refill during the same store visit, regardless of the original beverage purchased.

By the way, customers without a registered Starbucks account may purchase a refill at a reduced price. However, joining Starbucks Rewards is FREE, so you’d be wasting money by not joining the loyalty program if only for the complimentary refills—especially if you often enjoy your beverage in-café.
