  2. Starbucks coupon WITHOUT a BAR CODE (even with discount code doesn’t work) is not FREE!!! don’t waste your time.

      That’s not true. They prefer you print out a coupon but it that’s not available, you can show them the flyer on your phone or tablet. If that’s not available just tell them code 350 and they will do it and it is FREE. I will attach my recent from yesterday’s FREE Starbucks trip.
