One of the most frequently asked questions by Starbucks Gift Card holders is the one as to whether they can check their Starbucks Gift Card balances online. The answer to this question is in the affirmative: that, yes, one can indeed check Starbucks Gift Card balance online. Checking a Starbucks Gift Card balance online is easy. It is a straightforward procedure: the sort of procedure that should take you less than a minute, especially if you have the required details (namely the card number and the security code) at hand. Once you have your Starbucks Gift Card balance, you can then figure out whether to use the card to make a payment, transfer funds from the card or to reload funds onto the card.
How to check a Starbucks gift card balance online
If you are interested in checking a Starbucks gift card balance, the first thing you need to do is to go to the Starbucks website. The address/URL you can use to access the said Starbucks website is provided within the ‘helpful links’ section below.
Once you get to the Starbucks website’s homepage, you will see that there is a main menu at the top of the page: with menu items like ‘Coffee’, ‘Menu’, ‘ Cofeehouse’, ‘ Responsibility’ , ‘ Card’ and ‘Shop’. From that menu, click on the ‘Card’ item (it is the second last). Upon doing so, a drop down will appear, with various columns of links. The second column of links within that drop down is entitled ‘Manage Your Card’ and the first link in it is the ‘Check Balance’ link. Click on that particular link (the ‘Check Balance’ link).
On the page that you are taken to, while checking on the left hand side, scroll down a bit — and just below (that is, after) the ‘Join my Starbucks Rewards’ section, there is a ‘Check Balance’ section. As required, within that section, enter the card number and the security code. Then click on the green-colored ‘Check Balance’ button, and your Starbucks gift card balance will be displayed to you.
How to obtain the Starbucks gift card number
One of the details that are required, for you to access your Starbucks Gift card balance, is the gift card number. This number is printed directly on the Starbucks gift card, and that is therefore where you obtain it.
How to obtain the Starbucks gift card security code
The other detail that is required, for you to access your Starbucks Gift Card balance, is the security code for the gift card. This is found just below the gift card number. This number is, however, concealed — and you therefore have to scratch (just below the Starbucks gift card number), in order to obtain the Starbucks Gift Card security code.
