Starbucks Card eGifts are digital gift cards that can be used for anything, such as a latte, cappuccino or an icy cold blended beverage, including the new Banana or Red Berry Yoghurt Frappucinos. The balance can be used all at once or across multiple visits to participating stores. In addition, customers can register the eGift and participate in My Starbucks Rewards to earn rewards for purchases.
Over the past four decades, Starbucks has bloomed from a single coffee shop in Seattle's Pike Place Market to more than 17,000 stores responsible for hand crafting their signature cups of coffee for 55 countries. The company’s smiling, green-aproned baristas have become the mascots of many people’s morning routine, pouring cups of dark, medium and blonde roast for coffee purists, and adding shots of caramel or white chocolate to more elaborate espresso creations, such as blended Frappuccinos.
Concerned with more than flavour, Starbucks strives to fill its menu with responsibly sourced coffee, cocoa and tea that protect the farmers and bioregions they come from. These efforts have earned the company a spot on Ethisphere's 2013 list of the world's most ethical companies.
