Free 10-Song Summer Mix

Frappuccino® blended beverage fans, your friends on the music team here at Starbucks have a gift for you.

Beginning June 6, when you purchase a Frappuccino® blended beverage, your barista will hand you a free 10-Song Summer Mix playlist of our favorites, available for download on iTunes while supplies last. Some of the artists may be familiar while others may be discoveries, but there's something for every summer activity.

Death Cab for Cutie's breezy "Underneath the Sycamore" (U.S. only) may prompt you to pull out a blanket and basket and enjoy that Mocha Coconut Frappuccino® blended beverage picnic-style with a friend, while Parts & Labor's "Rest" will likely cause you to open the sunroof, crank the music and head for open road. Booker T. Jones’s twist on "Just a Friend" (featuring the song’s writer, Biz Markie, as well as Sharon Jones, and the National's Matt Berninger) may spark a spontaneous dance party, so proceed with caution. Our friends We Are Augustines (former members of one of our favorites of all time, Pela), will make you want to give your bicycle (or motorcycle, if singer Billy McCarthy has any say) a spin on a dusty country road.

There are all kinds of moods to satisfy your summer needs, so go get yourself a Frappuccino® blended beverage, air out that dusty picnic blanket and polish your bike, ‘cause it's time to bask in the sun with some killer music.

    i bought a frap today 6/6/11 and wasnt given any free downloads... (no one was around when i got mine so it wasnt like they were swamped

    Any other way to get one? I'm lactose intolerant and the frapps make me very ill.

    This is a great promotion, but is there any way to get the download if you *don't* have (or want) an iPhone/Pad? I really dislike iTunes and use my Blackberry as an MP3 player. Since the Blackberry Starbucks Card app for Blackberry is so good, I'm surprised that the corporate office didn't take BB users into consideration when designing this promotion.

      This has nothing to do with iPhone vs BlackBerry vs Android, etc. iTunes is a place to download music. You are free to play the files you've downloaded anywhere you like. Since the iTunes music store is the #1 place to download songs, and since iTunes works on both Mac and PC, I think they made the best choice possible to get this promotion to the masses.

        Please tell me how to get itunes music on the device that is not an ***** device. Not trying to be rude I'd just like to know. My girls have zen stone mp3's and I have an ipod and I can't share music with them. I also tried to load some of my music on to both my sonyerricsson and samsung phones and itunes will not let me.

        If you have an iPod (you said you do) then you probably have iTunes to manage your music for your iPod. iTunes will convert songs from the ***** proprietary M4V to the more universal/less restricted mp3 format. Once converted, you should be able to simply move them like you would any other file; no need to use iTunes to do so.

        Actually, any song you buy off of iTunes IS exclusive. The songs are formatted in .mp4 format, not .mp3, and only Apple devices are compatible with this file type. Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, or whatever else you use cannot read this file type unless you convert it into .mp3 format. So really, only using iTunes is limiting the number of people who can easily take advantage of this offer. However, it IS #1, so regardless, I agree that this is the best way to make the promo available.

        I have several different types of mp3 players that work with Itunes music. You are right that it won't download directly from Itunes to a Blackberry or other device but all the music files are located on your computers hard drive and you can transfer them to other devices that way. Very simple we have them on a Nintendo DSi, and a simple $40 walmart mp3 player and an Iphone 4.

      For Blackberry and Android users Doubletwist is an app that will convert from iTunes to something useful. So I put iTunes and Double twist on my computer, convert my Itunes with Doubletwist and listen away on my android.

    I'm here at the store. I bought a venti frapp. Store employees know nothing about the promotion and don't seem to care too much either. Store #8269 receipt 1403815. I was advised to call the 800 Starbucks number - rather than them calling to see how to remedy the issue. Telling the customer to call Starbucks if they don't know what to do about a store issue seems to be the default answer here. I'm guessing they'll be telling each customer who knows about this special to call

    The last time I got excited about something posted by Starbucks on their Facebook page, it was the announcement of the Mocha Coconut Frappuccino, which then took several weeks before any of the stores were offering it. If this is another bait and switch to get you into the stores, and then not have the promotion available, I'm going to be one unhappy customer.

      I was there today as well and no promo for me either. They didn't have a clue what it was. After the Mocha Coconut Frap came out, they were mysteriously out of coconut syrup for two weeks...something about they were "waiting for their shipment." The ad for the Mocha Coconut was on the wall but they weren't able to make it? Weird. Seems like false advertisement.

    So, just out of curiosity, is this also available on Zune Marketplace? Being that M'soft and S'bucks are both Seattle companies, it would be nice with a bit of "local patriotism"... QUite a few of us don't use iTunes. :-(

    Just bought a frap. Was on iPad & read about the free download. I hadn't received anything either. iPad said it started the 6th. Went back in & the guy said it actually wasn't supposed to start until the 7th. Was super nice & gave me the card for downloading. Apparently just a mixup in paperwork & Starbucks. Super nice here.

I also got an email about the iTunes card after midnight from Starbucks. I think the promo might have been slated for 7th instead of the 6th. I'm going to try rhe code again tomorrow and if it still doesn't work then I'll go back and get another one.

    I went to my local Starbucks this morning and saw the promotion for the Summer Mix there. Actually, I came across it last night on Facebook, which prompted me to go to Starbucks, purchase a 'However-You-Want-It' Frappuccino, and when I asked about the 10-song freebie, the barista gave it to me as soon as I paid for the Frappuccino.

    • bremnerj

    Now that everyone is saying that they aren't giving away the cards just yet - I may have to go to Starbucks to get my Raspberry Mocha Frap and run the risk of not getting a card either - DARN. If I don't get a card, guess that means that I may have to stop again tomorrow.......and possibly the day after that...........

    • 6/7/2011 8:53 AM

    Just back from one of the Sbux here in Oakland, and they hadn't even heard of the promotion. They offered to find out (good customer service) but as the line to order was nearly out the door I told them I'd come back in tomorrow.

    I got a card yesterday at the Starbucks in the Millennium Train Station in Chicago, as i was on a day trip. I live in another state, which I guess doesn't have any Starbucks 30 minuets from me :(. But what I did do, since there was no line, was I looked at the Fleet Fox's new album they had for sale in the store. I forgot what I ordered, but the barista gave me thed summer mix card. I was traveling in a group and another family in the group ordered some fraps, and didn't get one.

    • guitarsabeaton

    Also, I went to iTunes last night and today, typed in the code to redeem it. It booted me back to the main iTunes Store page. What a fail. Too bad, because they great bands on it like Death Cab for Cutie, Booker T, Jones, Cold War Kids, Fleet Foxes, The Airborne Toxic Event and Peter Bjorn and John. So, I think Starbucks doesn't know what to do when it comes to their promotions like this.

      This happened to me as well. Does this mean that all the downloads are used up for this promotion? I was super excited for the Fleet Foxes song especially. Maybe I can ask my barista for another card tomorrow, or can Starbucks fix something so that my download stops just redirecting me to the home page of iTunes (this happened both on my Mac laptop and my iPad)?

        I know 99.9% that the downlads are not gone. The promotion started yesterday (June 6th) I tried to download them yesterday night, and it wouldn't work. Many people above said that they didn't even get a card. So I'm sure it's Starbucks falt or A pple's fault. I e-mailed A pple about the problem and they have yet to respond. So we will have to wait and see.

I am only one person so he must have heard about it from someone earlier. Then he proceeded to lecture me about how false emails are sent out once in a while and I told him it was on the website. He had nothing to say (surprisingly) about that.

        It is very frustrating to read through these posts, see that mine was not an isolated problem, but rather that the whole roll-out of the promotion seems to have gone bad. The "I'm sorry's" sprinkled through here seem inadequate". It seems rather that you need to 1) train your staff to handle things better when they do get caught uninformed, and 2) tell us how to follow-up so you can make this right.

    I recieved an email tonight from Starbucks CS and got a new code, but still the same thing. Sending me back to the iTunes Homepage. I'm a little surprised at how difficult this has all been! I've downloaded songs from there before, but this is crazy.

    • RabbitLuvr
    • 6/7/2011 5:15 PM

    No one at the store I just left, frappuccino in hand, knew what I was talking about. First the barista told me she hadn't heard of it, then after I showed her the email she said I had to be "black level" to get the downloads, and when I told her I was two stars from Gold, she decided that the only way for anyone to get the downloads was to call customer service. I seriously doubt a promo would be set up that way! So...... How do I get the music downloads??? I paid with my card,

    • wilfredooliveros
    • 6/7/2011 5:21 PM

    Ok, here's the thing: bought the frap, got the card, opened the itunes, signed in, select the track (DCFC's song) clicked on "buy" (there was no other option) the billing information asked for the redeem code, put the redeem code in, and then...N-O-T-H-I-N-G. Am I missing something? You know the following sentence: Please Help!

      when you sign in to itunes, in the upper right side of the screen, theres a quicklinks area, go to redeem... type in the code, and the download is instant. Itunes will download all ten songs. You DONT go to the artists listed on the card and click buy, thats the wrong way of doing it.

        done that, exactly as you explained (I did that also in the first time) but nothing happened, guess something is wrong with my card, thanks anyway for trying. I'm gonna go to the store where i got the card and ask the guys there for help

    • jrlindley
    • 6/7/2011 5:53 PM

    Same as above. And the email promotion didn't say to grab a card from the barista, so I figured since I paid with my gold card I'd sign into my account and it'd just know, or I'd get a follow-up email. Botched promo all the way around.

    • jrlindley

    • 6/7/2011 6:41 PM

    I went to the Chino, CA Starbucks drive-thru yesterday evening and the guy was clueless about it. He went and asked and came back with a stack of Starbuck/ITunes cards that say "Pick of the Week" on them and gave me one but it is only for one free download, it was not the current promo. I think Starbucks is definitely running a bait and switch. They get you in to buy your frap and then say they don't know anything about a promotion.

    No one at the San Clemente store knew about it, including the manager! While reading through the comments here, I was finally approached by a barista, who said they "went and looked and dug them out." Um, OK. Now to see if the code works...

    • foxfyre
    • 6/7/2011 8:09 PM

    I had to ask about it when I bought my frap this morning, and eventually they found someone who knew about the promotion and gave me the card. Unfortunately, when I try to redeem the code in iTunes (on my computer or my ***** devices) it does NOTHING. No error code, no download, just ... nothing. Very frustrating.

    I'm having the same issue that some of you are having, can't redeem the songs. When I tried to redeem the first time after accepting the terms and conditions iTunes I got a message saying it couldn't process at this time. Now when I try to redeem it accepts the code but just redirects me to the iTunes homepage. Fix it Starbucks!

    I got an email yesterday announcing the 10 free download card and changed my usual drink to a frappuccino. When I didn't receive a card I asked for one and was told that the songs were available for free online to everyone, when I came home and checked that is obviously not the case. I budget a certain # of drinks a month so I am very disappointed. I hope starbucks does something to make this right.

    Not getting the card yields the same result as getting the card, except you don't have the frustration of visiting the iTunes site and repeatedly entering passwords and download codes. The card I received just kicks you back and forth from download code to iTunes sign in. It doesn't ever get beyond sign in. Hope others have more success.

    • sarahbethharris
    • 6/8/2011 10:04 AM

    I think the problem with the download is in the small print on the back of the card. "iTunes 10.0 or later." Of course, if you didn't update iTunes yesterday, you can't today because the site is down. Nice. Thanks Starbucks for the promotion, it would be nice if iTunes worked.

There is no mention there of Starbucks and when you search for Starbucks, nothing relating to this promotion is found. Very Frustrating.

      Try not to be too ******* Starbucks. For an organization that has such a good reputation, a once-in-awhile glitch is not the end of the world. The fact that they're working in conjunction with iTunes means that there is more than one organization involved, so more things can go wrong. I had the same problem, and made my own comment below, but I'm sure Starbucks will have this glitch fixed soon. Hang in there!

However, when I got on my iMac desktop today to redeem it, iTunes kept coming up with this error message: "Your request is temporarily unable to be processed. "Please try again later". I did everything correctly, and kept retrying, but to no avail. Since this just started on 6/6, could it be that iTunes has not yet set up for the download?

    • Jennifer1558
    • 6/9/2011 12:37 PM

    I didn't get a card the first time, so I went back and bought ANOTHER Frap the next day (when I really wanted something hot instead), and finally got a card (after having to ask for it), but the code doesn't work. That's a great way to entice us to come back in to get something "free" that is actually a useless waste of time.

    • 6/9/2011 12:38 PM

    I too had to ask for the card. However the code does not work for me either.

    The card/code doesn't work. Sad. :( It looks like pretty much everyone is having this problem. Are you guys doing anything to fix it? I really wanted it. Maybe that's why the guy at the counter didn't give me one (they were in plain sight) until I asked.

      I live in AZ and saw the commercial on 6/7/11 advertising the new Mocha Coconut Frap which also mentioned the free 10 song summer mix. I went to my local Starbucks that night and did not receive a card. However I went today 6/9/11 and got one and when I got home I redeemed the card on iTunes but nothing happened. I go on here and see that the people that DID get the card are also having the same issue! Also why would they advertise this on TV if they aren't going to make their stores aware?

    I have purchased one every morning this week and never have been given the card for the Summer Mix. I even purchased a second one on Tuesday and the barista had no clue in what I was talking about and neither did the manager. I have used two different locations neither have had the cards.

      Just ask the Barista when you visit. If they don't know what you are talking about and look at you as if you are crazy then you should ask them why Starbucks is advertising the promotion on their website and on TV.

    • 6/9/2011 2:46 PM

    I just bought a frappe in Chicago. They had a flier about this promotion and still no one in the store knew anything about it. The flier is useless as it gives no directions whatsoever. If there's a redeem card, it seems not to have made it's way to Chicago.

      I would like to know why I didn't receive mine either. I went to various Starbucks over the summer, and even though I asked, they either said they didn't have anymore, or had no idea what I was talking about. I'm a bit disappointed that this company hasn't followed through with this. Especially since I am both a coffee and music fanatic.

    Went into a Target store w/a Starbucks and they had the cards, and the download worked-no problem. Just to compare-I went into an actual Starbucks-and they didnt have the cards yet. (btw the two were on the same block-its not a regional problem) Interesting.

    • 6/9/2011 4:53 PM

    • kentapp
    • 6/9/2011 6:13 PM

    I got my free card and will return it to the store. To get my "free" music they required a credit card. With all the companies get hit by theft why should I ever give a credit card number for something free. Isn't that asking for trouble? I'd dump your iTunes relationship until they fix so it truly is free. Ken

      Bluntly-this whole thing is free guys. You cant expect too much. Secondly, Starbucks isnt going to like this attitude, but you dont even have to buy a frap.Take the initiative and you find the card (if its there) right where the previous cards have been for Itunes downloads. I never had a barista hand one of those to me-so I never expected to be given one for this. If the code doesnt work, as well, thats the other thing someone has to fix. Keep trying it.

If your store doesnt have cards yet-then they dont have them. Youll have to come back when they do. If your code doesnt work-then itunes needs to fix that. Whats hard about that?

    Not sure what all the problems were, but mine worked! I like plain coffee and am generally not a frappuccino person. I was ready to order my usual drip grande when I heard the girl say to the customer ahead of me that she was giving her a card for 10 free itunes songs with her frapppuccino. The customer seemed baffled and not excited about the free gift. But I was! I decided to order a frappuccino too. The card worked with no trouble and I'm happy with my songs! Thanks, Starbucks!

      I'm very surprise to see the number of people that did not get the promotional song summer mix through iTunes. It appears that the marketing tool through iTunes or a snag in the system caused a disruption of usually satisifed Starbucks customers. As a student who is currently taking a marketing class I think that Starbucks should have mentioned this issue with a huge apology on their home page somewhere and still left the blog. I do support the benefits Starbucks offer it's employees.

    • 6/15/2011 10:40 AM

    I got it to work today!! But you really only need one card, because you can only download those ten songs. So once you have them there is no need for another card because I was not given the option to choose what songs I wanted to download. It just automatically downloads the 10 songs on the card. STARBUCKS- if this is not the case can you let me know how to download other songs?

    So, maybe I'm missing something, but at downtown Chicago Starbucks' stores, the cards are just on display: You don't need to buy anything. You aren't even limited to taking just one. In most locations, they aren't even near the registers—they're over by the milk and sugar area. If your card didn't work for some reason, go grab a couple more. One of them is bound to work.

    I bought a Caramel Macchiato at a Starbucks in a Super Target in Marietta, Georgia and the barista handed me a "10 Songs for Summer" gift card when I checked out. Both me and my two young boys LOVE all ten songs. Whoever made the song selection did a fantastic job! We made an iTunes playlist out of the songs and when we went on a beach trip a few weeks later we played those songs over and over. I hope Starbucks is going to do the promotion again this year! (I had no trouble with the download)

    Yea, I bought LOTS of frappucinos, the summer of 2011. No one ever gave ME the free tunes.
