Starbucks is back with a similar promotion to what they offered last year, back when their program went revenue based. The catch is that this time the promotion isn’t valid for existing Starbucks Gold members.
Through this promotion, you can earn Starbucks Gold status after making a single purchase with the app or a registered Starbucks Card between July 20 and July 31, 2017. Ordinarily you need to earn 300 stars, which requires $150 of spend, in order to earn Gold status. There’s no registration required, and your account should automatically be updated with Gold status if you otherwise meet the terms.
In terms of program benefits, Green members receive the following perks, which include things like a free birthday drink and free in-store coffee refills:
Gold members receive the following perks (the most significant being that you can redeem your stars towards free drinks and snacks):
Starbucks Gold isn’t life changing, but if you do happen to be making a Starbucks purchase anyway between now an the end of the month, make sure you use their app or a Starbucks Card so that you earn Gold status.
Do you plan on taking advantage of this offer?
