Get Starbucks Gold Status With One Purchase

By  | 

Today Starbucks’ loyalty program went revenue based and it seems like they’re trying to ease the transition by offering everyone a year of Gold Status for making one purchase.

Make any star-eligible purchase by May 2 and new/current green members will get Starbucks Gold Status for a year, existing Gold Members who qualify will have their status extended a year from the expiration date. Note: “Entering a Star Code from a grocery purchase is also considered an eligible transaction.”

And if you’re new to the program you can get a free drink for signing up via this link and opting in to emails.

The new My Starbucks Rewards program earns 2 stars for every $1 spent. Green (general) level benefits (0-299 stars) include:

  • Free Birthday food or drink
  • Free same-day in-store refills on brewed coffee & tea
  • Jump the line: Order and pay ahead from the Starbucks® app
  • Pay with your phone at the register
  • Member-only events and exclusives
  • Special offers over email and in the app

Gold Members get those benefits and the following:

  • Star Rewards – Free food or drink every time you collect 125 Stars
  • Monthly Double-Star Days
  • A personalized Gold Card

Even if you only purchase Starbucks a few times a year (like me), it’s worth taking a few minutes to register for the free Birthday treat and in-store refills.
