What We Like about this Gift with Purchase Promotion

  • Universal: Starbucks knows that it has a large and diverse target audience ranging from young kids to middle aged adults. Thus, it offers promotional items catered to specific groups. For example, this puzzle piece set can be used by anyone regardless of their age. This is because it is a timeless item that does not have any restrictions on age or gender.
  • Increased Brand Visibility: The puzzle piece set features the distinctive Starbucks logo at the top and the words “Starbucks Rewards” at a prominent location of the completed puzzle set. Therefore, this item is easily recognisable and customers will instantly think of the brand. This helps to increase brand recognition.
  • Boosts Customer Loyalty and Satisfaction: This promotional campaign is great for boosting customer loyalty as it allows customers to receive greater perceived value from the purchase. It also leaves customers satisfied when they obtain a gift with purchase. This is because it makes them feel appreciated and special when they receive freebies. This will also encourage them to become returning customers.

What could Starbucks do to Improve?

  • Instruction Manual: Starbucks could include a instruction manual together with the puzzle piece so that it will be easier for customers to construct the puzzle set. This will offer guidance to them as well. In addition, having a visual representation of how the puzzle set should look like will be useful and help in the process.
  • English Translation: The information regarding the promotion is displayed only in Mandarin. Tourists or people who do not understand Mandarin will be unable to read and understand the promotion. Therefore, providing an English translation will be beneficial as they can target a larger audience. In addition, they will not have to tell their non-Mandarin speaking customers how they can enjoy the promotion.
