Mini coffee/pastry chains Paris Baguette and Madison Kayser only are 1x for me.  Smiley Sad

Starbucks app reloads don’t count as a restaurant with Amex the last time I did one. It’s been a while as I normally use the Altitude at Starbucks with Apple Pay.

I don’t know about if you swipe it at in store

@I canceled my Starbucks app last week (long story Smiley Sad) but the app reloads or card swipe @ the store counted under restaurant 4X for me.

Interesting.

Did you use Apple Pay with your Amex card in the Starbucks app or did you load the card directly into the app and process the payment that way ?

Does it make a difference if lets say the Starbucks is a stand alone store or one that is inside a Mall/Target/Airport etc..

Thanks everyone. Will be switching my Starbucks spend from my Uber to the Gold Card now.
