Stock Investment Plan (S.I.P.)

Starbucks Stock Investment Plan (S.I.P.) is a quarterly stock purchase plan that allows you to buy Starbucks stock at a 5% discount. You are eligible to participate after 90 days of service and may contribute between 1- 10% of your base pay through regular payroll deductions.

You may enroll, change your contribution percentage or withdraw only during enrollment periods (1st – 15th of March, June, September and December). Changes cannot be made at any other time. 

Once you enroll, your paycheck deductions will start on the first payday after the new quarterly offering period begins. Your contributions will be held by Starbucks for the entire offering period. On the last day of the quarter, Starbucks will purchase as many shares of Starbucks stock as possible at the discounted rate and deposit them to your Fidelity Netbenefits. 

If you leave the company prior to a quarterly purchase date, your contributions will be refunded through payroll.
