Question about Starbucks Cafe inside Alberstsons/Vons in SoCal



  • For this week, I have a “JustForU” $5 off $5 Starbucks Cafe offer under my account. Have not purchased anything at any Starbucks inside Albertsons before and have a question. Do they use the same register system as the supermarket where I can enter my account phone number before swipe my credit card?

    The answer is yes, they use the same register system. You choose the item you want to get at the in-store Starbucks counter and then enter your phone number and then the discount should come off. I called my local store also just to verify and he said that is how it worked. Good news for me as I got the $5 off $5 on 3 out of 4 of my family’s J4U accounts. Sometimes J4U gives me $5 off $5 for anything in the store. I much prefer that coupon, but $5 off $5 at the Starbucks counter is good, too. Only some of the Vons stores have Starbucks cafe’s in them, so you may want to go online and check (store locator and then look at the full list of services provided) or call before going if you are not sure if the location you want to go to has one or not.



  • SD reports that for multiple items totaling $5, it would take off only the cheapest item.

    Good to know, so the best way to use this is to buy one item $5 or more. So if it does what you say, this coupon is not truly a $5 off $5.

    That’s screwed up. Should be the most expensive item.

    Also as reported on sd:

    Starbucks drink over $5 works with coupon… Don’t use Starbucks cards to pay for the difference. It ended up charging the whole amount. I had to go to customer service to get the $5 back.

    I bought the Banana Bread slice (3.25), it did not come off, so I add the scone (2.75), and 2.75 come off. I think minimum is $5 dollars total and it takes off the lowest price item.

    Impossible breakfast sandwich priced at $5.25 did not work.
    Double-Smoked Bacon, Cheddar & Egg Sandwich $5.25 worked.
    Another breakfast sandwich worked but I don’t have the exact one right now. Will update as soon as I hear back from a family member.

    There is also a 29 cents/lb Dole banana J4U offer this weak (at least in the Los Angeles area). That is a good price for Dole bananas.

    That happens with the digital coupons. SPLIT YOUR ORDERS, pay for the expensive item by itself!

    They must have fixed the glitch. Now I do not believe it has to be a single $5+ item, but rather any amount of items that add up to at least $5. I did the offer twice (on two J4U accounts). One time I got a $2.65 blueberry muffin and a $2.45 chocolate chip cookie and the $5 discount came off leaving me to only pay a dime. The next order I got 2 brownies for $2.95 each and the $5 came off and I only had to pay 90 cents OOP. Actually the brownies were marked as being $2.75 each, but rang up at $2.95 each, so I paid an extra 40 cents due to their pricing mistake. The cashier said there was nothing she could do about it, but the manager came in an hour or two. I thought not worth the trouble just for 40 cents.
