Coffee Chain Credit Cards

The Starbucks Rewards Visa Card Helps Customers Earn Rewards Faster

— February 3, 2018 — Lifestyle
Starbucks recently announced the Starbucks Rewards Visa Card as an ultra-convenient new way for the chain's rewards loyalty program members to earn and enjoy their accumulated Starbucks Stars points.

The $49 annual fee credit card gives people the chance to instantly earn Gold status at Starbucks, which entitles them to perks such as birthday rewards, access to mobile order and pay, as well as double-star days. Additionally, cardholders will earn one Star for every $4 spent and three Stars for every dollar spent at Starbucks.

As well as being able to enjoy a range of other benefits, Starbucks Rewards Visa Card users will also be treated to curated "Barista Picks" throughout the year, which will help cardholders discover a range of food and drink items from Starbucks.
