Last month or so, I finally received a Starbucks Gold Card!
I was actually really excited because I was determined to get it this time. I usually get Starbucks Gift Cards and never think anything of it after the balance drained out. But in order to keep better track of my coffee money, I decided to reload the card and therefore, my Starbucks Gold Card mission began.
And then I got it!
So, final question -
Is it worth it?
It's hard to say. It's pretty exciting to get the little reward that gives you a free coffee or free food item, but it's lackluster. I don't really go out and buy a lot of their food and my coffee drinks aren't expensive either.
I'm hoping to see a little perk for the long term. Sure, some days they will have promotions going on but it isn't exactly exclusive for gold members.
So unless you buy an expensive $5 coffee drink or go after their meals or something, I'd say that you aren't missing out on anything.
On another note, in search for a pretty good photo for this post, I came across a photo that reminded me of the Way I See It cups that were once popular. I used to love those whenever I bought coffee!
I did a little digging and according to the question and answer site, Quora, someone said that there was quite a lot of controversy that went down with some of the quotes that went on the mug. . Another article I found sort of confirmed that notion about the political and religious statements that started to appear on the mug.
In my opinion, I thought they were really cool and I would love to see something like that return.
Do you have a gold card? Was it worth it long term? What did you think of the Way I See It mugs?
