So who's going to test it using a 2nd Chase card to see if they get the points twice :)

for anyone that buys from Starbucks daily it's no big deal. Either a hit or miss.

I'm not sure I see this as such a great value.

Many of us can routinely get Starbucks gc's at >50% discount (like through various Amazon promos or groupons).

That puts a value of $10 on the $20 reload.

300 stars get you 2.4 drinks. If you estimate that you'll redeem this for drinks that retail for $6 each, that's puts a value $7.20 on the 300 stars.
(2.4 drinks x $6/drink x 0.5) = $7.20
(The last factor on the left side of the equation is due to the 50% discount on Starbucks gc's.)

Seems like you're paying $20 for $17.20 of value.

Feel free to poke holes in my analysis.

Lol. By the time I step to the counter, the חשבונות have been completed long ago and I have a fully funded balance on my Starbucks card.

Amazon promos like AMEX? There are other GCs to get, so getting Sbux comes at an opportunity cost.
Groupon promos are rare and limited.

A 10 or 15% cutback would be fair, but 50?

So you're shiach to such a beverage. You're probably good with the airline miles too. It's all impressive stuff. I just sit at home with my calculator to find out if I'm paying a good price on toilet paper and napkins (which should be on the price wiki btw).

I have more targeted Amazon accounts with the Amex promo than I know what to do with. Doesn't seem to be a limiting factor (for me) so the opportunity cost is approx 0.

There should be gift cards that you can sell at a significantly higher percentage than 50. I'd think 85% would be the minimum, which means a 15% cutback is fair.

Seems like you're paying $20 for $17.20 of value.

1.First of all who always gets gc for 50% off? Most don't.
2. What's this referring to?
(The last factor on the left side of the equation is due to the 50% discount on Starbucks gc's.) The right side?
3. Where does $17.20 come in?
Let's say you get the gc for 50% so $20 of gc is $40 tops,
Now $20 of reload is $20 plus 2.4 drinks (Once you have earned 300 Stars in 12 months, you will achieve Gold status, which consists of the following benefits: All Green Level benefits. Free Star Reward every time you earn 125 Stars. You can check your Star balance online through your Starbucks account, or on the Starbucks app.)
now valuing the drinks at $6 each so $12+$2.40=$14.40+original $20 =$34.40 difference of $5.60 assuming you buy your Starbucks gc for 50% which most do not.
4. Seems like you're paying $20 for $17.20 of value. Where do you get that from?
5.Feel free to poke holes in my analysis. Just trying to understand your calculations..

I hear where you're coming from regarding the AmEx promo for $30 off $60.
   but then again this is still decent deal, for those that don't have 25 Amazon account and were not targeted on their one or two accounts.

Who needs 25 accounts? I find that having 6 accounts between me, DW, and other family is enough to get enough sbux and Uber gc's to support my needs.
