    • I just won 5 stars! I was really hoping for these 5 to get me one more free drink, I was 3 stars short lol. Still have 2 more plays but happy with the 275 stars I’ve won.

    • Contest ends January 1st. Don’t forget to play.
      It was not showing in my app so I thought it ended. I needed two more stars to do a drink redemption. Just played and nope no gain. I guess I will have to make a purchase. Good thing is with this game ending I have started getting points promo (stars with purchase) back which always disappear during games promos.

    • Nothing 3 days in a row (9 tries total). Most of my prizes have 2 stamps, but still haven't won a single thing since the beginning lol.

    • I didn't have any of yesterdays plays. I've found that if you use at least one, the rest will carry over. But if you don't play any that none of them carry over. I only had 5 plays today and used zero yesterday.
      That would explain things. There was a point yesterday morning when the site was down that I was able to use one play, although I was given an error message right afterwards.

    • Glad to see that we didn't lose out on missing chances from yesterday, they're available today.

      Hopefully everyone else's are more successful than mine.... =\

    • Against all odds, I actually won 0 out of 8 prizes today. Astronomically small chance of that happening but I did it!
      Last time I will be entering Starbucks contests when you consider the time spent.

    • Nothing about converting existing points when the changes hit, right? In other words, it’s worth it to redeem all points (for coffee/handcrafted drinks) prior to these changes?
      Coffee beans and iced tea/coffee will be cheaper under the new system.

    • This time around is the worst experience for me -- have only won 15 stars; not even the $1 off coupon! Been playing 5 chances a day, since the first day.

    • I've been one stamp away from all the big prizes for the last 2 weeks. Only getting "try agains" everyday. Makes sense. The probability of winning those limited prizes is so low.

      Won over 300 stars initially. Worth the time.

      Seems good enough to me. I won a $25 gift card a week or so ago and won a few stars here and there. Worth my time.

    • I've won nothing since like the 1st week where I won a bunch of stars. Been playing everyday. Have tried right at 3 EST when it resets, also at 5 EST, the official start time of the game. Mostly been playing super late at night.

    • Finally won 5 stars after two straight weeks of nothing! Also got one stamp closer to the 50 star prize.
      I got a 50 star stamp late last night too. It was a huge surprise lol. Won 5 stars the night before, first stars in 5 days. The prizes are really few and far between.

      Stars AND a stamp!!?

      I thought I might have better luck today after actually spending some of the stars in my account, but it hasn't helped (yet).

    • I got 3,970 in the Holiday Run game, is that the closest you can get without going over 4,000?

      It seems like it is the same pattern of obstacles, just wondering if anyone got 3,999 or something.
      so far my high score is 5972

    • Anyone has issue claiming the rewards ? I won a $1 voucher and the claim link did not pull up a form/math test but went straight to "previously determined to be ineligible" .
      i had issues playing at night saying encountering error

    • I suspect the early wins are less competitive. As I recall I didn’t receive the mass email notification for the contest until a few days in? Odds are always difficult to perceive but I think fewer were playing early on.
      That could be it, too. Already RFDers are always prepared for it ahead of time lol.

    • Most of these Starbucks contests seem to place the majority of the winning times earlier in the game. I've won 260 stars from two big wins and a bunch of 5 stars, but the winnings have been slim this past week with only a couple of 5 star wins. Seems to be their typical contest pattern and with far less glitches than the previous contest.

    • I am getting almost all "try again"s but have had a couple of 5-star wins lately. Total of 70 stars across the contest for my only account, hard to complain. Free is free

    • Same like 5 straight days of nothing, game gets worse every iteration.

    • So are the odds really low now?
      Cuz no one is winning anything days in a row.

      In total I've gotten 50 stars which I guess is something but it almost seems pointless to play now.
