At participating Starbucks locations, My Starbucks Rewards members earn automatic Gold status for one year with any purchase via the Starbucks app or with a registered Starbucks card. (Not a member? It's free to join.) Normally, Gold status requires collecting 300 stars (with each dollar spent earning two stars), making this a savings of $150.

With Gold status, members get a personalized Gold card, Star Reward with every 125 stars, monthly double-star days, and all benefits from Green level (such as free birthday rewards). Click here to find your nearest location. Deal ends December 31.
