starbucks goldRight when you think you couldn’t love them any more ;) Okay, so maybe this won’t cure all the haters out there, but it’s still sexy as hell! Especially if you drop as much as I do there – or our company really.

So this is the deal, Starbucks came out with a new V.I.P. card a while ago (i’m a bit slow) that saves you 10% off every time you swipe! Here are the deets:

Starbucks Gold, Starbucks new membership program, elevates the rewards experience for Starbucks most frequent customers – a $25 membership fee qualifies members for a 10 percent discount on most purchases at participating Starbucks – from espresso beverages to espresso machines.

Again, it won’t help the average coffee drinker, but if you’re as addicted as i am you can save some mad money over time. Our company goes through around $150-$200 of coffee/snacks a week there, so you can imagine my excitement :) That means we save what, $800ish a year? And all for a measly $25 bucks? Holla!

You can check out a flyer on it here (in .pdf), but here’s the skinny:

  • 10% off most purchases in participating stores*
  • A free drink when purchasing the card in-store
  • Options to pay for purchases (cash, credit card, Starbucks Card) while still receiving the membership discount

And if you register online, you also get the following goodies:

  • Complimentary beverage on one’s birthday
  • Free Wi-Fi access for 2 hours each day
  • And other exclusive offers and discounts

So there you have it, yet another reason to fall in love with Starbucks ;) haha… nah, just some good savings if you’re already spending boatloads over there. Now tell me, WHY don’t i work for their marketing team again?


Bonus tip: Find a good "balance transfer" offer to help pay off debt faster!

If you’ve been making payment after payment (on time) and still haven't been able to get your debt under control, snatching up a good balance transfer credit card offer may be the ticket to try. That’s where in order to gain your business - credit card companies will let you transfer your existing debt to a new card and let you pay ZERO PERCENT interest on it. Saving you tons every month!

What's the catch? Usually balance transfer cards charge a fee (around 3% of your debt balance) to let you transfer your balance to their 0% interest offer. But we've found a great credit card that will let you do a balance transfer absolutely free. Click here to learn more and see if you qualify!

PS: If you don't trust yourself with another credit card, ignore this! This strategy is to help you get out of debt quicker, not risk adding more to it.
