Our Verdict

Offered same thing last year but this one doesn’t seem to extend existing gold member status for 12 months (e.g it’s only for green level members). Gold status isn’t that exciting basically means you get free reward for every 125 Stars and you get two stars per $1 spent (plus they run other bonuses). Some of the promotions are for gold only as well.

Thanks for sharing.

Gold status does occasionally mater for some promos, at least. I know recently there was a $10 get $10 bonus gift card offer only for gold Members. Only time I’ve wished I had gold status. I’ll prbobably make sure to buy a drink to have it ready for next time something like that comes up.

The free refills are nice especially in the summer as they’re valid on iced coffee too (including caramel). Fyi, many people don’t know but even without gold status you can get refills and they only charge you 50 cents. Anyway still a nice savings with gold if you refill enough.

Gold Status is the only way to start earning Stars towards food & drink redemptions.

Green Status gets free refills and birthday gifts but $$ spent don’t earn squat.

Does this need to be a new registered user or it works for current non gold member as well?

Anyone know if I can get free refill when the original hot drink is paid by rewards points?

it extends the existing gold member status for another year? I thought this one doesn’t.

@ YU. Yes, you can if it is a standard coffee, but it would be a waste to use your rewards points for a standard coffee. The free item is valid on anything so best to use for a specialty drink or food.

Not many people know this but Green status gets you free refills as well (you get green after 4 purchases on card I believe)

How have people managed to do this? Trying this for SO and it asking for card # and PIN. The card added to account only has the card # visible on the site, no PIN.
