Dan finally got his Starbucks Gold Card! I feel like there are a lot of people out there who don't know about it so I thought I would share. If you're addicted to Starbucks like me then you should have a Gold Card in no time. First you need to get a Starbucks gift card and register it online. You need to start paying for drinks strictly with your card. It is also a great way to budget.....those drinks can add up fast :) Each transaction will earn you a star. After you have 30 stars you will be mailed a personalized gold card - you reload that and use it as a gift card. Once you reach gold card status: for every 15 stars you earn, Starbucks will mail you a coupon for a free drink. You also receive a free drink on your birthday, 10% off most purchases, free refills on coffee and tea, no additional cost for syrup, and some other perks. For all the details check out their website: https://www.starbucks.com/card/rewards. It's free and easy to do and if you're going to Starbucks anyway, you might as well start earning some rewards!
