I made it… I finally made gold status with my Starbucks card and received the elite card. If you register a gift card at Starbucks.com and make 30 transactions you too can get an awesome gold card…with your name on it! By having the high status you can get: free birthday drinks, free coffee / tea refills, and free food or drink after every 12 stars (transactions). I also use the phone app; which lets me add funds to the card, see my stars and rewards, and pay for my purchases (with a bar code that can be scanned). But, having the card is super cool. I HEART Starbucks!
