What is a Starbucks Partner Number?

A Starbucks partner number refers to a unique identification number assigned to each employee or “partner” of Starbucks. It is a way to identify and track individual employees within the Starbucks system. The partner number is used for logging into company systems, accessing employee discounts and other benefits, and tracking performance and rewards. It is specific to each partner and is not shared or used by customers.

To add your partner number to your Starbucks app and receive the employee discounts and rewards that you so rightly deserve, follow the steps below:

1. Access your Partner Number in the mypartnerinfo portal
Find your Partner Number on mypartnerinfo portal here. Write down the partner number as well as the 8-digit pin.

2. Log in to from a Computer or Web Browser (Not the Starbucks App)
Next log in to from a desktop/laptop computer, or web browser on your phone or tablet. You will not be able to do this step in the Starbucks app. 

To access the web browser in Safari on your iPhone, go to the Starbucks website and tap the AA on the bottom of your screen to the left of the URL. This will bring up a popup menu. Tap “Request Desktop Website” and you will be brought to the desktop version of the web page.

Next download and login to your Starbucks app. Now that your partner number is linked to your account the next time you mobile order the partner discount will be automatically applied to the order.

For any daily/weekly free stuff that you can’t order in the app you’ll have to ask the barista at the register to apply your number manually.

5. Add Your Partner Number in the “Cards” Section of the App
You can also add your partner number to the cards section of the Starbucks app. This will allow the barista to scan your number when you order drinks in person rather than having to hear the number from you verbally. 

To add the scannable version of your Partner Number to the app simply navigate to the “Add a Gift Card” area and input your Partner information. 

Now when you order in person simply hit the “Scan” feature at the bottom of the app and the barista will be able to scan your Partner Number. 

The Partner card in your Starbucks app can be loaded with money like a gift card.

Starbucks Partners receive extra rewards when they purchase drinks. Three points per $1 spent with a Giftcard/Partner Card and two points per $1 spent with a credit card or paypal.

Can Friends and Family Use My Starbucks Partner Number?
Giving your Starbucks Partner Number to other people to use is against company policy. If Starbucks finds out that you have given your Partner Number to someone else to use, they consider it theft and a fireable offense.

You can, however, use your Partner Number to buy things for others, as long as you are the one making the purchase.
