It’s also worth noting some basic Starbucks spending strategies:
-Register your gift card. As long as you use it once you’ll get a free drink coupon every year for use around your birthday.
-Never purchase more than 1 item at a time. Starbucks gives elite status perks based on the number of times you use your registered gift card. 5 items on one receipt earns 1 credit towards green or gold status. 5 items bought on 5 receipts earn 5 credits.
-After 5 transactions you get upgraded to green status and you receive free kosher parve soy milk substitution on any drink (normally 60 cents per drink) and free kosher parve syrup flavors (normally 50 cents per drink) You also receive refills on brewed or iced coffee and iced tea!
-After 30 transactions you get gold status and you start getting free drinks every 15 transaction. Remember if you are buying 2 drinks to order and pay for them separately to get more transactions in order to get free drinks faster!
