    I love these promos! I usually only have to make a few purchases each year to keep my gold status. Oh, and the free entries during the games always adds some stars too!

    I received the email this morning but I’m not sure how to activate it other that clicking on “join now” I just joined the other day with my $10 Groupon gift card but I haven’t made a purchase yet… hoping this works tomorrow👍

    I recently dropped down to Green status and got an offer in app to make any purchase tomorrow only and get Gold status for one year.

    I did not have it in my email but had in my app inbox. I don’t go much, it is more to treat friends. Is Gold status worth it in your opinion? TIA

    Question: do you still have to load funds to your Starbucks app or card in order to earn points or can you earn points by scanning your card and actually paying for my purchase in cash?

      Hi there! Here is what I found in the details – “Earn 2 Stars for every $1 you spend using your Starbucks® App or registered Card in stores or online, no matter what you buy.” Hope that helps!

    Thank you for posting this!! I probably wouldn’t have checked my email to get the offer otherwise!!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Woohoo! You’re welcome!

    Do you have to buy a drink, of can you buy a food item. Is there a minimum amount that you have to spend?

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hi there! The details do not specify which items qualify. Be sure to ask your barista when in store! Hoping that helps!

    • LS

      No, you don’t need to purchase a specific food item – and it does not need to buy a drink. I usually purchase the cheapest item on the menu … usually a banana for $1.
