Free Starbucks w/ Lyft…gift card purchase?

Starbucks and Lyft have had a weird little romance for the past year or so.

Both companies have gotten around a bit. Lyft hooked up with GM, Starbucks hooked up with the NY Times. They both hooked up with T-Mobile, though that one ended in a nasty breakup for Starbucks, who was apparently cheating with AT&T.

Enough of the drama.

Here’s the news: Lyft is now selling $20 gift cards that are for sale at only one place: Starbucks. And every gift card comes with a free $5 Starbucks gift card.

If you use Lyft a lot (only about 20% of Americans have used ride-sharing of any kind), this could be a good way to stock up on Lyft credits and get a bunch of free Starbucks. More details on the Lyft gift cards can be found here.

Apparently you can also earn Starbucks stars for using Lyft in the morning, though you only earn 5 stars per ride.

If you feel like a long read, here is an interesting story about how the Lyft and Starbucks CEOs got together to start the partnership.

I’ve posted quite a bit about Starbucks and Lyft. If you’re interested, check out my topics page to see some of the headlines. I also try to tweet any deals or news for both on my Twitter page.

Thoughts? Have a good day!
