$5 Starbucks gift card for signing up for Visa Offers

They send you text messages based on your shopping patterns.

$5 gift card from Starbucks is the reward. Gleff's blog had an offfer for 500 miles as well.

One of those cases where I have to ask myself is it worth the annoyance.

Question is how easy it is to turn it off. I didn't see anything in the offer about how to do so.

I will pass cause I'm sure they'll be spamming like crazy, but thank you for posting as I am sure many members will take advantage of this.

If you're worried about spam, I just use a disposable email for it.
Feel free to send all the spam you want to reachedlegendary1@gmail.com, because I don't use it for anything.

I had to sign out of Starbucks and then sign back in to make the transfer.

Still didn't work for me.

I finally was able to make it work. First, I added the ecard to my account. From there, I was able to transfer the funds to my regular card without a problem. Simply trying the "transfer funds," option it gave when redeeming for the card wouldn't work for me.
