If you have a balance on your Starbucks Card, you can continue to use the card, however your balance will not be protected and you will not receive stars or rewards.
4. List Data Which You Want To Be Erased
Starbucks will ask you to list the data which you want erased.
For example, your list could include:
- First name
- Last name
And any other information Starbucks has about you.
However, if you are unsure of what data Starbucks has, you could consider using the “Data Access Request” and then deciding what information you want deleted by Starbucks. You don’t have to do this, it’s just if you are unsure of what information you want deleted.
When you’re ready, tap “Submit”.
5. Delete Your Account
Then, you will be taken to a page and it will say “Your contact has been received by the Starbucks Customer Care Team”.
Also, at the end of the message Starbucks will tell you your reference number which you should save in case you need to get in contact with Starbucks regarding this case.
You will be assigned a member of Starbucks’ support staff and they will confirm your deletion request.
Starbucks says it’s their intention to reply to you in 5-7 days, but hopefully it’s sooner.
Now, you should have pretty much deleted your Starbucks account! You just need to wait for Starbucks to be in touch to confirm you want to.
