Starbucks is offering a (targeted) promotion today (Tuesday, 6/26) to earn Gold status with a single purchase. Some members have reported receiving emails about this — I saw the notification when I pulled up the app (you’ll likely have to open your app to see if you are targeted). My wife will be passing by a Starbucks today and surely in need of a coffee after Baby Rey kept us up half the night last night, so I’m going to load up my account on her phone so she can stop in for a coffee and pick me up Gold status in the process.

The Deal

  • Get Starbucks Gold Status with a single purchase today, June 26, 2018 (may be targeted – check the app)

Quick Thoughts

Gold status normally requires earning 300 stars in a year ($150 in purchases). Once you have Gold status, which you would keep for a year, you can earn a free item every 125 stars ($62.50 in spend). You also get a personalized Starbucks Gold card in the mail, but don’t get excited — as per the Starbucks site, it’s not as good as it sounds.

That said, I’ll take free status as we’ll spend more than $62.50 at Starbucks this year and be happy to pick up a free item or two, and I’ve somehow missed a number of the other promos for Starbucks Gold status.

You need to call the Starbucks @ 800-782-7282. I called and was told that there is a problem with the rewards program changing over to gold status. The lady updated my status while I was on the phone.


My daughter is still waiting for her Gold


Purchased a sandwich this morning after seeing the offer – the title seems to imply that you need to buy a drink but that’s not true based on the T&C. It’s almost been 12 hours, still no notification that I’m gold..


Got the update 48 hrs later.


Also still waiting – hopefully soon


Same here. I’ve been a Starbucks reward member since December 2017. I made a purchase and haven’t event got a receipt. My gold status invite notification disappeared around 6am this morning that’s my only memory I’ve got.


Just get a Nespresso machine
