Drink Starbucks…and Go for the Gold?

Calling all caffeine addicts! If you’re reaching for your second coffee of the day (like me), you need to seriously consider this great new Smartphone application by Starbucks. It’s free, it’s user-friendly, and it will get you some amazing perks. All you need is a gift card and you’ll be on your way to becoming a Starbucks Queen (also like me)!

One purchase is equal to one star, so if you’re buying multiple drinks, do each as a separate purchase. You can either swipe the gift card or scan a bar code straight off of your app. If you run out of funds, you can easily refill any of the cards you uploaded right from the application.

There are various levels of membership that you will achieve as you rack up your purchases. At the Welcome Level (no stars needed), you will be eligible for a free beverage or food item on your birthday. At the Green Level (five stars), you will be eligible for free refills in store, along with free birthday beverage/food. Finally, at the Gold Level (30 stars), you receive all of the aforementioned benefits, along with a free drink every 12 stars. And the best part about reaching gold? You will get a personalized gold card sent to you in the mail.

And there’s more! Besides the fact that you get credit for every deliciously crafted beverage you buy, you can quickly find the closest Starbucks, no matter where you are; create and save your favorite beverages; take advantage of the pick of the week, which is usually a free song download from iTunes; and send virtual Starbucks gift cards to other friends using the app. Who knew that caffeine could be THIS much fun? …Oh wait, it is. πŸ˜‰
