Good news, Starbucks lovers: everyone’s favorite coffee chain is giving you Gold status after just one purchase. That’s right, make just one purchase between now and July 31, 2017 you’ll automatically get its highest level of status. There’s no registration required, and you just need to have a profile and use the app or a registered card in order to get the status. If you successfully make the purchase, your account should update with Gold status.

Gold status with Starbucks normally requires that you earn 300 stars — each dollar spent at Starbucks is 2 stars, so you would need to spend $150 in order to get to the minimum threshold. Green members, which is the entry level of status, gives you a free birthday reward, the ability to order ahead, free in-store refills, member events and the ability to pay by phone. Gold status, however, gives you those perks as well as monthly double-star days, a personalized gold card and a reward for every 125 stars.

If you’re a frequent Starbucks goer, this offer could be well worth taking advantage of for an expedited path to Gold status. While Gold status is surely not a game changer, it could be worth it for the extra perks — especially since you only have to make one purchase to earn it.
