Starbucks is offering its members the chance to earn its highest level of status after one purchase for one day only. On June 26, you can make a single purchase and automatically earn Starbucks Rewards Gold status.

In order for the purchase to be eligible, it must be made with your registered Starbucks Card or by downloading the Starbucks app and purchasing with your phone. In addition, you must also be a Starbucks Rewards member. Alcohol and Starbucks Card purchases are not eligible for this offer.


Gold status with Starbucks normally requires that you earn 300 stars — each dollar spent at Starbucks is two 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, get a free birthday reward, the ability to order ahead, free in-store refills, access to 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.

Also keep in mind that American Express is running an Offer with Starbucks to get up to 15% off every purchase, up to $5.

This isn’t the first time Starbucks has offered such a promotion — in fact, it does so fairly often. If you frequent Starbucks, this offer could be well worth taking advantage of in order to get your Gold status with practically no effort. Plus, as Starbucks continues to evolve its Rewards program, Gold status could become more valuable.
